7Sheep

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.

Mautic Marketing Automation

It's bred from an open source product and is a nice little automation engine. The interface is clean and easy to use, but it definitely doesn't have the bells and whistles of a full-featured Marketing Automation platform like Marketo, Eloqua or Pardot. It's easy to stand up and run with a 1 person team. If you're looking to do simple web tracking, forms and landing pages, and email automation, it's a solid tool. If you like the idea of quickly being able to add focus items to your website it is also a great tool. Keep in mind it's new, and there will be bugs and issues here and there, but Mautic's support team was always very responsive and quick. I would consider both Mautic and Act-On to be "break-in" marketing automation tools, and Mautic stacks up. Not ready for prime time, but will definitely be an upgrade from simple email automation!

Pros

  • 7Sheep's support is fantastic and they have been extremely helpful, whenever we have encountered issues or needed assistance, in particular when we first began using the product. They were great in helping us to customize everything for our use.
  • I particularly appreciate how easy it is to create queries and separate our contact lists. This aids us immensely with targeted communications.
  • The tags to personalize mailings are incredibly useful and save a lot of time.
  • I enabled text message campaigns within our account and it is really very simple, a very low additional cost and drives our personalized engagement further.

  • Cool automation and flow builder - very visual and easy to follow and understand.
  • Simple to use, the interface is clean.
  • Integration with Salesforce was a snap - not too difficult or involved.
  • Focus items! Love this concept - Javascript flyouts with buttons and forms (if needed). Mautic is a trendsetter here!

Cons

  • The personalized tags cannot be accessed from the menu/page you create your emails. I get around this by opening two windows, but in the future this might be an improvement.
  • I needed to create custom reports in order to get the overview on the campaigns that I needed. More generic reporting would be a useful feature.
  • I would like to be able to duplicate e-mail campaigns across different activities/databases. I could set up a mailing template for this but sometimes it would be good to be able to just re-create a particular campaign that we received a good response to for another, entirely different, activity.

  • Both the email and landing WYSIWYG was flawed, ran into errors and glitches.
  • Form actions were lacking, and simple automation from forms was problematic.
  • Focus items were buggy on Mautic landing pages... had to add through Javascript, and caused issues on the page.

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.

Mautic is the new kid on the block, bred from an open source product, we chose to purchase the hosted/supported version. I felt like it stacked up very well against Act-On and even Pardot. I like their data API push and pull with Salesforce - very quick, and the queue was synchronous and we never ran into problems with it. I think compared to Eloque and Marketo, it's definitely lacking features, although much easier to bite off and chew with a small team. We displaced Mautic with Marketo, but mainly because we needed more on the automation and integrations side of things. I think they will continue to make strides, especially on the integrations they have and support. Given how quickly they've come on the scene and have been competitive, I expect to continue to see great things from these guys. Even though we moved onward (we're a fast-growing software company), I would still recommend them!

Return on Investment

  • Definitely increased efficiency! In terms of event organisation and contacts management, I'd say around 70% time is saved in the medium/long run (after getting to grips with the system - but definitely worth the initial time investment).
  • Better service and engagement rate - some of the things which I had to remember to do (like respond to emails or send follow up information) can be taken care of automatically. Often a simple acknowledgement will go a long way...

  • Quickly saw tie-ins to web traffic, email analytics, form and landing page conversions - helped better measure individual marketing campaigns.
  • Slowed us down on the automation side - some pieces had to be implemented through Salesforce automation. Took time and effort!
  • Simple - easy to set up and integrate with Salesforce. Had this finished within a day, so we were able to start seeing results immediately.
