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.

Wishpond

It's a great platform if you're looking for something to run contests that provide leads and drive user engagement, but if they also incorporated social media management and scheduling, Wishpond would be a 10 by far. It's definitely worth looking into specifically for running contests throughout the year, for a wide variety of companies and industries.

Pros

  • Affordability: the only solution we found on the market that gave us what we needed at a price we can afford!
  • Flexibility: 7Sheep seems to offer enough flexibility in the advance features that we can customise it as we need.
  • It's easy enough for our whole team to be able to use.
  • Their team is helpful and supportive.
  • Ease of use - All the options for creating campaigns are user friendly, and the support team is always quick to respond if any issues arise.
  • Seamless ability to transfer contacts to other systems like CRMs, ESPs, etc.
  • A unique interface that makes Wishpond the one service we always go back to. We've tried other lead generation tools, but none seem to have the creative flexibility that Wishpond does.

Cons

  • The personalized tags cannot be accessed from the menu/page you create your emails. I get around this by opening two windows, but in the future this might be an improvement.
  • I needed to create custom reports in order to get the overview on the campaigns that I needed. More generic reporting would be a useful feature.
  • I would like to be able to duplicate e-mail campaigns across different activities/databases. I could set up a mailing template for this but sometimes it would be good to be able to just re-create a particular campaign that we received a good response to for another, entirely different, activity.
  • Wishpond charges by lead, so if we went over a certain about of leads attained, we could no longer access more unless we spent more with them.
  • As a separate platform, we had to purchase another social media platform for scheduling along with Wishpond, which squeezed our budget.
  • We would have liked to see more types of contest options and templates to use.

Alternatives Considered

A normal email client does not support automation.
I find Wishpond to have a better user interface and it offers a lot more options than Constant Contact. However, Constant Contact does have better, more immediate phone support (there is no phone support for Wishpond).

Return on Investment

  • increasing customer engagement
  • increased ease to deliver multiple step marketing campaigns
  • fewer forgotten emails due to drip campaign automation
  • We saw a high ROI in terms of new followers on our Facebook pages as a result of the contests we ran, going up by an average of 100 followers per contest.
  • We also saw more followers on our other social platforms while contests were running, with an average of 25 additional followers on our Instagram and Twitter accounts that could be tied to the contests.
  • Finally, we also saw an uptick in tickets purchased for the next event around our contests, going up an average of 5%.
