As long as you know what you need 7Sheep for, then you will be impressed at how much it will do for you. If you only have a small list of contacts and only talk to them once a year, then you'll probably not need it - but if you are involved in any kind of communications/PR within multiple clients or multiple stakeholder groups, it will make your life a lot easier once you've understood how to work it yourself

My advice in choosing software in general is to know what you want to get out of the software. Then start researching the software on your own to see what features and benefits each has that will help you accomplish what you need. Once you have a good idea of what sorts of features you're looking for, reach out to the vendors that have them to see demos. Get really in-depth with your demos and ask for practical use-cases for each feature. Free trials are pretty useless with this sort of technology because the initial set-up is so time-consuming that you would either not set it up properly, or you would not stop using the provider you chose after the set up because you don't want to do it again!

Pros

  • Training: I set up automated emails to regularly send tips and tricks to my users.
  • Newsletter: Updates of my software are announced via the email campaign feature.
  • Forms: I send out questionnaires to my users and gather feedback via forms.

  • It is easy to use without too much set-up.
  • The e-mail engine is simple to use and straightforward, and e-mails seemed to get delivered for the most part.
  • The reporting information is very in-depth and detailed.

Cons

  • A Wordpress plugin is missing. This could make it easier to install the tracking code and to embed forms.
  • A payment module. If we could get donations directly in the tool we would not need to integrate our payment software.
  • The templates for mail merge need to be integrated via the 7Sheep support. Would love to do this on my own.
  • Easier synchronisation features with other applications.

  • The reporting area used to be simple and straightforward, but they changed it to run a bunch of reports and they export in Excel format, which is clunky.
  • Syncing with Salesforce.com was a difficult process
  • It seemed that the traffic reported through Loopfuse did not match our Google Analytics account

The tool serves our needs and we like the user interface. The few times we contacted support they were super helpful and responsive. When we asked for more integrations they confirmed the integrations we need (e.g. Hipchat) for the near future.

My new company is much larger and we need robust capabilities so we're implementing Marketo currently.

It's pretty easy to use without any technical abilities, but the email editor will require html skills (no drag and drop).

Alternatives Considered

At the time we had to choose between several versions of marketing products. We decided to choose LoopFuse since a few of our employees were quite amused with the ease of use of LoopFuse. Also when looking at cost-effectiveness LoopFuse is a great product for the smaller companies. Making the decision was not too hard.

Return on Investment

  • Automated lead nurturing is a huge time saver.
  • Using the same contact list for nurturing and the newsletter is reducing our administration.
  • Segmenting our contacts into the different business segments also makes my life easier.
