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.

Vero

Vero is well suited for basic email marketing if you have a great developer or development team on your staff. You can expect basic tracking like opens and clicks, but do not expect additional tracking or reports outside of this. Vero truly is a basic marketing automation software hence its price reasonableness in comparison to competitors.

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.
  • Email template editor allowed our developers to design emails to looks like beautiful marketing emails or basic personal emails.
  • The Vero API allowed our developers to connect triggers and events from our visitors to kick start campaigns.
  • Campaign flows were fairly easy to create and define.

Cons

  • It would be useful if some standard email templates were available.
  • They could find a way to make the form questions easier/quicker to reorder.
  • I would like to be able to change user roles so that only certain people could see certain contact lists.
  • Naming conventions. Some items, once given a name, could not have the name changed.
  • User-friendliness of interface for non-developers. Vero is certainly built with the developer in mind and a marketer/user cannot do much before a developer configures everything.
  • Absolutely terrible if you are hoping to use Vero as a CRM. To its credit, it does not claim to be a CRM.

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

Alternatives Considered

It offers the email marketing solution we need with addition!
Vero's price tag is far more attractive but for what you will find to be clear and obvious reasons. Vero has no CRM unlike HubSpot and Infusionsoft. Vero also has limited tracking unlike the seemingly endless possibilities offered from HubSpot which as we all know comes with at a significant cost, often not feasible by a small startup company.

Return on Investment

  • Definitely increased efficiency! In terms of event organisation and contacts management, I'd say around 70% time is saved in the medium/long run (after getting to grips with the system - but definitely worth the initial time investment).
  • Better service and engagement rate - some of the things which I had to remember to do (like respond to emails or send follow up information) can be taken care of automatically. Often a simple acknowledgement will go a long way...
  • Some campaigns have led visitors to complete a task they originally left incomplete
  • We have seen new customer signups from a particular email series campaign
  • Thanks to the help of our great developers, Vero has actually been a great software for this stage of the startup
