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.

Mindfire is good when using direct mail pieces. You are able to analyze the web and print pieces together. However, it doesn't allow for good scalability of campaigns. While the templates are decent, you do need some coding knowledge to make these campaigns web compliant.

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.

Cons

  • 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.

  • The UI is dated and needs to be updated. The ability to delete elements after publishing and going back to edit mode. Better UX needs to be implemented.

Because it's affordable and really useful to me as a freelancer - I don't see that changing anytime soon!

Support

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

It offers the email marketing solution we need with addition!

Mindfire wasn't my choice. The only reason it is being used is because it correlated with direct mail.

Return on Investment

  • I do send newsletters more regulary and so I keep better in touch with my clients.
  • I have an easy tool I can recommend to my clients.
  • With the 7Sheep API I can integrate my projects very easy. Especially WordPress which I mainly do.
