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.

Oracle Eloqua

It is well suited for marketing teams who want to be flexible, adaptable to changes in their business and create powerful, sophisticated campaigns to their clients. Teams that want to create automated drip campaigns with dynamic content and personalized cadence and messaging would find Eloqua very easy to use and perfect for their needs. It has powerful, in-depth reporting functionality and great CRM integration (note that I've had experience integrating only with Microsoft Dynamics CRM and Salesforce - both of these integrations worked very well) - so teams that use CRM will also find it complementary to their marketing technology stack.It will not be a good tool if a company doesn't use any CRM - as it is not a CRM replacement; or if all the marketing team is planning to do is "batch and blast" emails (which is a possible scenario for some very small businesses)

Pros

7Sheep

  • 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.

Oracle Eloqua

  • Having used several platforms, I have found that Eloqua is a great tool for Marketers. It really shines in a B2B environment where e-commerce is not the goal, but controlled communication is the main goal.
  • Eloqua has one of the best form processing controls that are simple to use but powerful. Its form front-end development tools have much to desire for modern forms and progressive profiling, but having skilled HTML and JavaScript folks can overcome this issue.
  • Eloqua's Campaign canvas is extremely powerful yet easy for mildly skilled marketing teams to use and create complex engagement tracks.

Cons

7Sheep

  • 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.

Oracle Eloqua

  • They recently went to a more impersonal account management model. This really stinks. Not that our CSM was really that great but based on the fact that it was always nice that you had one person who was in your corner if something really went wrong.
  • The topliners community used to be really strong and would provide a TON of support for Eloqua users. Now, you can wait weeks before anyone replies to a question or issue that's posted.
  • Eloqua support used to be very robust. Now, it seems like they are just trying to close as many tickets as possible and are very quick to respond with, "Oh, no that's not our issue." or "You are going to have to ask a partner to help you with that!"
  • Eloqua has failed to innovate....it USED to be THE platform to go with. Now, Marketo has really stepped up and brought some innovative features to the marketing automation area such as a more user-friendly email builder, landing page builder, and ABM capabilities.

Oracle is usable but it does have a learning curve. While the learning tools give you access to navigation and how to do simple tasks - trying to figure out complex items such as editing past campaign elements or finding the proper report can take a bit. Overall, you'll need to sit in front of the system and not be afraid to get your hands dirty and touch some buttons. Nothing terrible will happen and you'll learn a ton making it easy to use

Whenever we needed assistance help was easy to access. They understand the request the first time and provided easy to follow instructions to fix it or fixed the issue if it was not something we had control over. It's always best to provide screenshots so support knows exactly what is going on

The implementation of Eloqua is not a problem if data are correct and if the overall process between Eloqua and the CRM are well taken into account.

Better integration in our workflow and in our own application.

I feel that if we were able to get over the challenge of switching, we would be able to move to Marketo and have a much more positive experience.

Return on Investment

7Sheep

  • 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.
Michael Kremmer profile photo

Oracle Eloqua

  • We only provide support for our clients, so I cannot share hard numbers, but we do notice our clients getting much more leads of better quality out of their marketing efforts.
  • By aligning Eloqua CRM integration with business flows, we see our clients are learning how to qualify leads and how to follow up on them.
  • At the same time, using Eloqua allows them to close the loop on marketing efforts, which gives marketeers the ability to validate their budgets.
