7Sheep

I think 7Sheep is especially important for organizations who need flexibility in translating and adapting their communications for an international target group. Being able to send out mailings and set forms up in multiple languages is very useful and in some cases necessary. Also, 7Sheep is great if you want to track how people are responding to your mailings. For example, do they open the mailings? If so, what do they click?

I feel that this is a very good email marking system. You really can accomplish any task needed for your email marketing needs. I think that if a few key features were added, it would really take Lyris HQ over the top. We are very happy with this product and we tell our clients about it when they ask us.

Pros

  • When preparing an event, 7Sheep takes care of pretty much everything you need to select, inform, and register participants, as well as prepare materials for the events, such as name badges and signature lists.
  • We also use 7Sheep for reporting on communications activities.
  • 7Sheep allows you to build simple or complex forms and questionnaires which we use both for events and independent surveys.
  • The drag and drop HTML editor makes things look good without a lot of extra effort.

  • Makes it easy to run segments and execute marketing campaigns. It's really very simple to send out a campaign. Even a beginner can do it with minimal training.
  • The campaign calendar showing what's been scheduled and what's already been sent is awesome.
  • Lyris HQ is extremely cost-effective compared to other email service providers.

Cons

  • It would be useful if some standard email templates were available.
  • They could find a way to make the form questions easier/quicker to reorder.
  • I would like to be able to change user roles so that only certain people could see certain contact lists.

  • For larger organizations running hundreds of unique email campaigns per month, pulling daily reports of individual reports can become very time-consuming.
  • Sometimes it can take a long time to run very large segments.
  • Overage fees can be a problem as they mount up quickly. However, the company is quite flexible and willing to work with you on a plan that fits your need and budget.

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.

Lyris HQ is a simple tool, but it is highly effective and , for smaller organizations, it can save a lot of time and money.

With both chat and email support I have always had enough ways to get through to them! Their support is good, honest and most importantly supportive. They helped us set up and start using the tool when we got stuck. Moving from Mailchimp where there were some semantic lessons to learn and they took the time to help us get used to 7Sheep

Implementation was one of the most painful parts for us as we had to find and create our own library to interface with Lyris's SOAP API interface which still to this day is one of the top libraries used in its language.

Alternatives Considered

I've mostly used survey monkey and google forms and doodle for small inexpensive jobs - anything more sophisticated always seemed to cost more than the actual fee I charge. 7sheep does everything they do, but it automates a lot of the processing, for a cost which is affordable and makes me more efficient - as I can use my subscription for different clients.

In my eyes and use they are almost identical services. Silverpop makes it much more difficult to manage multiple accounts across multiple departments, something that Lyris did seamlessly. Inversely Silverpop's support has been much more helpful as there where many times we were simply told "I don't know how to help you" by Lyris' support.

Return on Investment

  • Our two drip campaings make staying in touch so much easier.
  • A big plus is to have all contact data for leads and clients in one tool to use with newsletters etc.
  • Constant communication during onboarding can be a pain and this is now easier.

  • More defined lists for third party blasts, which turns into more leads for the clients. Which is more money in our pocket.
  • Some segmentation pulls do take a long time, thus leading to multiple requests and a time suck for myself.
