7Sheep

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

ONTRAPORT

Due to the complexity of Ontraport and the size of the monthly subscription it isn't ideal for a solopreneur just starting up. Having said that, when you are ready to start using their system, the team at Ontraport made the transition very smooth and safe. I was transferring years of business and data from several different systems over to Ontraport and felt very secure the entire time

Pros

  • With an embedded form we capture leads on our website. These leads get a drip campaign.
  • After someone has signed up we store relevant details in 7Sheep via the API and start a drip campaign.
  • All users and leads get our newsletter and updates.
  • We have installed the 7Sheep tracking code on our website to get additional information about our leads.

Cons

  • Import is sometimes slow.
  • Seeing the segment for a mailing switches to the result list. Would be good to stay in the mailing.

  • The platform is pretty stable and fast. Every once in a while the system seems to run a little slow. There have been huge improvements in speed and stability since Oct 2014.
  • Mobile app needs improvement. I have not been able to use it on my smart phone and the web login doesn't work well for my iPad.
  • Graphic interface showing how all the sequences, forms and opt in pages are tied together in a funnel design would be cool.

The software is just easy to use. The UI is fairly intuitive. The help system is pretty good. I find it is pretty quick to get my work completed and if I don't document my things well, I can always figure out how I did something when I need to make changes.When I have a problem the tech support is easy to deal with and when things need to get escalated they are resolved quickly.

Very responsive system - and if the infrequent delay or mishap occurs, they are quick to respond.

I really liked the robust features presented in a way that made sense to me. I needed a higher level system that I could understand how to use with little or no ramp-up time.

With the new lower priced options, it's now easier for newer businesses to start with a more basic version and upgrade as they need more features.

Return on Investment

  • All work in the NPO is voluntary. 7Sheep helped a lot to streamline processes which frees resources.
  • 7Sheep pricing is very affordable and in addition they help NPOs with even better pricing.
Stefan Rehm profile photo
  • Because I'm connecting more consistently, I am seeing a quick turn in my sales cycle
  • The task management feature ensures that we are delivering consistent service to our customers
  • With lead flow mostly automated, the team in freed up to actually work with clients, rather than trying to just manage relationships
