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.

Oracle Eloqua

Eloqua is very well suited for the experienced marketer, as the software has many options and is very comprehensive. It is not well suited for people who have less experience, who may initially be better off with a program like Vertical Response, iContact, Constant Contact, etc. The learning curve for inexperienced users might be too steep and the program might scare people away.

Pros

  • Sporadic mailings to my clients via the e-mail campaign feature. I create personlised HTML emails with the visual editor and schedule them to be sent during the day when I am on the road.
  • After initial contact with new clients I setup a series of timed emails to stay in contact. Based on flags I have in the system they are automatically adjusted.
  • Existing clients get automated emails after certain events like visits or deliveries.
  • I often get in touch with support to ask for best practice examples and they are always helpful.

  • It's a robust platform that allows you many different customizations.

Cons

  • Would suggest to create the API token on request rather than have it automatically included in the account.
  • Moving templates we created from MailChimp to create templates in 7Sheep needed some care and attention from our side.
  • The flexibility 7Sheep offers can sometimes lead to us having to make decisions that other tools might make for us!

  • Analytics has a bit too many views
  • Combining segments within simple campaigns

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.

I just do not believe that Eloqua has been as innovated as their competitors.

Oracle's Eloqua is a powerful program but it does have a steep learning curve for someone who has not used it before.

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.

Alternatives Considered

We can synchronise our systems and also produce form letters.

We evaluated Marketo in the fall of 2012 during our evaluation of updating from Eloqua 9 to Eloqua 10. We formed a cross-functional Marketing Automation Council to drive the evaluation process. There were positive points awarded to both platforms in terms of meeting our "day in the life" scenarios. In the end, the flexibility of Eloqua's data management, from the integration to the ease of creating custom data objects - in addition to the combined power of Eloqua University and the Topliners Community - confirmed our decision that updating to Eloqua 10 was the best choice for us.

Eloqua is great for email personalization, but if you want to personalize digital marketing, including social, you will have to do some heavy integration lifting.

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.

  • Eloqua has had measurably positive impacts - as in double-digit increases in quantity, quality and effectiveness - on overall business objectives across our marketing organization and to a lesser extent, sales, product management and IT as well.
