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.

Genius is well-suited for a smaller company looking to do one-off campaigns and not necessarily needing to track within a separate system. For example, the professional version of Salesforce is probably an ideal size for Genius. For a more enterprise/larger company I wouldn't suggest Genius be used.

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.

  • Reporting - we can send out emails all day, but if we don't have something to report to the client after-the-fact it voids the entire process. Genius provided a visually stimulating reporting tool.
  • Tracking - Genius was great at tracking opens, clicks, bounces, hard bounces, etc. This helped us clean up our system as we sent campaigns out.
  • CRM Integration - Genius was great about tracking each contact (in Salesforce) and their activity via emails.

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.

  • CRM Integration - Although Genius was great at tracking individual activity, there wasn't a way to pull over specific campaign details (ie, bounces, deliverables, statistics, charts). Our end-users not participating in the direct campaign had no way of knowing the results from within Salesforce.
  • Communication - I had a difficult time contacting Genius when I had issues or questions.

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

The communication was insufficient at the end of our contract and after, which makes it difficult to work with as a primary product. The pricing was extremely attractive, but kind of lead to "you pay for what you get", which doesn't work in a company our size. I do think the ease of use was higher than our current contract, but the CRM integration was lower.

Alternatives Considered

It offers the email marketing solution we need with addition!

Pardot is within the Salesforce CRM, so solves many issues for us as far as our employees seeing direct results. Genius is more suited for the larger, enterprise company, whereas Genius is better for a smaller team. Both are extremely efficient, just target a different business size/purpose.

Return on Investment

  • We've certainly seen value-for-money - including moving from a free service such as MailChimp.
  • As we are in beta quantifying monetary value is not yet possible with sales.
  • We can nurture data more easily than with tools we were using before
  • Increased efficiency as leads stay up to date

  • More satisfied clients due to increased buyer activity.
  • More deals closed because a larger span of buyer interest was reached.
