If you need your own dedicated database then ask. It is possible to set up but it is an additional monthly cost - we chose this option because it is important for the data that we store and our data protection policy. We will do a custom integration to our internal purpose-built software and are also commissioning them to do this at an additional fee. We were very open about our use cases and this generated some good ideas from their support for set-up.

They are very strong in Europe and if you are an Eastern European entrepreneur on the US East Coast, they might be a better fit than HubSpot or Marketo. But if you are new to marketing automation, it could be a difficult learning curve. And at present (Feb 2017) the European exchange rates make it an unattractive. There are also some issues with price transparency. Add-on fees can mount up.

Pros

  • 7Sheep has a price point where I can give access to all my staff.
  • Our newsletter gets delivered in to the inbox without the 'on behalf of' information like with other tools we tried.
  • My team understands the logic of the tool and is happily using it.
  • 7Sheep has a very easy API which we can use for integration into other cloud software we are using.
  • Great support. The support team always helps with hands on if necessary.
  • Best use for ecommerce is in dynamic 1-1 newsletters for monitored contacts after just viewing few products and not buying.
  • Also it is great for lead generation because popups can be used wisely without spamming any users. They can also use dynamic content for more relevance and conversion.
  • There are great modules for analyzing TOP seen and TOP bought products by each user and whole base. So you can figure out trends and you can use the knowledge to make more relevant dynamic offers.

Cons

  • The user documentation is slightly lacking
  • There's a learning curve - the system interface is not the most intuitive
  • Users can't do everything themselves, some setup tasks can only be done by the 7Sheep support team
  • Using all possible features is hard. There is a need for individual strategy, but that is done well by their partners.
  • Timing and cooldowns could be done better.
  • Drag and drop creators are not top notch in market at the moment.

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.

Support

Based on 3 answers
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

Alternatives Considered

7Sheep offers all the essential marketing automation functions we need at a way more realistic price for a SMB
Much more features for much less price. Much better dynamic content.

Return on Investment

  • We certainly have experienced a great efficiency for our staff.
  • We spend far less time chasing tasks as they can be divided within 7Sheep.
  • Segmentation of data and lead management is really great and has helped us enormously in terms of efficient use of data.
  • Just cart recovery boosts turnover a lot.
  • 1-1 newsletter with dynamic content is great way to deliver intelligent email marketing.
  • If you make a long term contract there is a big discount.
