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

SALESmanago

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

  • Whenever we needed help their support was quick to guide us.
  • Contact form integration on our website was done via an embed code. We use WordPress and just copied the code on the page.
  • Aggregating our different contact lists from several systems was very important for us. We [now] have a comprehensive overview of our contacts and donors in a single online tool.
  • 7Sheep is a European company and also has its servers in Europe. Because of data protection laws this was key for us.
  • We can produce form letters straight out of the tool.
  • The solution is easy to use, once you learn it. Given that the marketing automation software is very complex, they managed to create a user-friendly interface, easy to use even without programming knowledge.
  • Educates users and customers - It is impressive how many resources SALESmanago invested in educating customers. We are talking about video tutorials, webinars every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, blog articles, infographics, free eBooks, Marketing Automation Day, events etc.
  • Multiple tools integrated into one - it's a habit that you find all the information and tools you need in one place. There are other solutions on the market, but SALESmanago is among the only ones that provides an overview
  • 30 day free trial - the advantage is that you do not have to pay first to use the solution. In the 30 day trial you have the opportunity to discover all the secrets of this tool and see if it fits to your business.

Cons

  • We use Joomla and a plugin would be great.
  • To get a perfect match for the look of our website we had to use custom CSS. Support explained us how to use this.
  • Planning campaings over time can only be done in a list view. A more easy approach would be great.
  • Few integrations with third parties. It almost always requires assistance from the IT department in order to be implemented.
