7Sheep

I think 7Sheep is especially important for organizations who need flexibility in translating and adapting their communications for an international target group. Being able to send out mailings and set forms up in multiple languages is very useful and in some cases necessary. Also, 7Sheep is great if you want to track how people are responding to your mailings. For example, do they open the mailings? If so, what do they click?

Pros

  • Their support is fantastic - even helping me think through the logic of my campaigns with their concierge service and offering advice on how to save time. Their new online manual is excellent too. Very clearly written.
  • The flexibility of the 7Sheep form builder allows me not only to automate a lot of outbound marketing but I am also consolidating a lot of my communications activities in one place. This is great when handling a diverse portfolio of campaigns.
  • Being able to integrate our forms within our own website wipes out the need to create standalone landing pages: we save a lot of time and keep an integration and overview with this. Love it. (Our client feedback scores have gone up since we used 7Sheep as well.)
  • Drap & Drop interface. It couldn't be easier to use.
  • Create drip email marketing campaigns.
  • Visualize customer journeys.
  • Create landing pages using the existing templates.

Cons

  • A/B testing for mailings needs to be done manually.
  • It could be easier to get the tags for personalised emails. Currently you need to copy/paste them into the email instead of using the editor menu.
  • For complete skinning you need to contact support. For embedded forms the design editor is okay.
  • Lead generation form styling for users with a limited knowledge of Java.

Alternatives Considered

7Sheep is easier to use as forms are integrated into contact lists. HubSpot was not affordable for our organization because of our high number of contacts. Didn't want to sign a year long contract.
It's VERY easy to use - drag & drop interface, not bulky.Excellent live chat & a phone customer support! Much cheaper than its competitors.Multifunctional (and has more functions and applications within than Marketo)Lots of templates ready to use.Very straightforward with tips popping up when needed. Creating drip campaigns has never been easier.Social media bulk upload (very useful!)

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
  • The platform has saved us a lot of money
  • It's highly functional and allows us to do a lot more than Marketo
  • It's easy to manage, and it saves us a lot of time on a regular basis.
