I use 7Sheep for marketing as a sales person. This works well for me as a single user. I do not think I could use the software together with my colleagues. Although we could have separated lists the access rights might not fit our use case. It has a strong marketing focus and cannot replace a full CRM system.

Mailchimp

Creating email templates to reuse can be a daunting task, especially if you are not a developer or have strong front end experience. Mailchimp allowed us to get our templates up and running pretty quickly and we were able to preview how they rendered easily as well. Additionally, we have a small audience list but it changes pretty quickly, so we want to make sure we are sending to actual subscribed recipients to maintain a positive reputation score. Mailchimp allows us to stay on top of our recipient list quite easily. Highly recommend this tool, especially if you don't have a large team and you are just getting started with Email Marketing.

Pros

7Sheep

  • 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.
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

Mailchimp

  • Mailchimp's interface is comfortable, we made it part of our daily work and handle every little aspect and tool which is quite useful.
  • Sending mass emails and reviewing the clients who have seen them, allows us to manage favorable content of our product and reach our potential clients, categorize the content, and speed up the work a lot.
  • One of the most important functions for our work team is the analysis and gathering of information to form reports with every detail that we study from our clients and evaluate the best options in our promotional campaigns.
Francisco Gomez | TrustRadius Reviewer

Cons

7Sheep

  • I know that they are working on a simpler way to send a test e-mail to yourself. This will streamline my activities as well and I look forward to that system change (which was suggested by a client. I have also suggested improvements which have been implemented.)
  • I miss an easy unsubscribe feature (like you get in MailChimp). Overall, 7Sheep's system is more flexible (good) but that does make it more complex to split up (not so good).
  • Setting up the SPF record in our DNS system was flexible and easy but for DKIM integration we had to contact the 7Sheep support. They do not check or show the necessary records in the tool. Customer service was great, though, so not a very big problem, just a bit of a nuisance.
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

Mailchimp

  • It would be great if the email template edit screen didn't save automatically.
  • It is possible to enhance various marketing forms such as a/b testing, social media emails, and so on.
  • The OTP might take a long time to arrive when asked for during the login process.

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.

We've had Mailchimp for about ten years, I want to say. I started with the company about four years ago, and I don't see us ever diverting to another source. It's easy for us to use, and we have all our clients already built into the database. I imagine we'll use them for as long as we have the company.

Mailchimp has made it easier to create and experiment with different landing pages and emails. I’ve also used Mailchimp to create new landing pages for products and services and AB testing has been so easy to find results. Lastly, its usability for testing emails is great and allows me to see dynamic elements.

I have, in the 4+ years that I've used Mailchimp, never seen an issue that restricted the use of their software/tools. I don't know of a single time when they're system crashed or went down. I could be wrong, but I honestly haven't experienced any issues with outages, errors or unplanned downtime

I haven't noticed any slow speeds from Mailchimp or their tools. I think the landing pages load quickly and look nice. The email reports and editing operates smoothly and doesn't take time to load. Additionally, when I use Mailchimp in conjunction with Zapier + Hubspot I don't notice any drag between any of these tools

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

Website tools were easy to use and understand so a novice can easily meet or exceed their client's expectations! Loved that we were able to totally customize so that the e-mail we created conveyed our client's overall messaging consistent with their branding! Client love that we can provide turnkey services to support their sales and marketing teams!

It's pretty easy to get up and running! There's a slight learning curve on a few things, but once you find where everything is located, you can import your list and send your first email. It really makes our clients feel great to see how quickly they can get that first email out.

Alternatives Considered

7Sheep

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.

Mailchimp

Mailchimp provides a variety of email templates but the problem in most cases is it doesn't fit our requirements. You need HTML and CSS knowledge to update the template. It supports only the English language, it should provide the template in other languages like Spanish or French, etc. Its interface is not very aesthetic that needs to improve. Campaign creation takes time because of the clumsy interface provided by Mailchimp.

Mailchimp over the years I've used it has grown in leaps and bounds. They have added so many additional features than were previously available. They are truly an all-in-one marketing platform now.If you're a small operation and just want to add email to your marketing efforts, they're there for you. If you're a larger operation and want to start sending postcard advertisements, they can do that. If you'd good with that and want to kick up your marketing by going social, you can do that on their platform. They are truly able to be as small as you need, but also get quite large in whatever it is you'd like to do through their system.

Return on Investment

7Sheep

  • With the translation support we have translated forms into Spanish for our producers and this has been a really positive benefit for them as a partner.
  • I am able to monitor interest in different products very easily and so re-target particular varieties to specific regions.
  • Text message campaigns mean that we can directly engage: especially for physical meetings, tasting reminders and so forth.
Brian Lee | TrustRadius Reviewer

Mailchimp

  • The free version of Mailchimp has a great ROI. There isn't any up-front cost and you can do so much with this version.
  • The analytics and statistics for the reporting are a great way to see if what you're doing is working for your business.
