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.

Zoho Campaigns

Buy for the CRM tool, NOT the campaigns tool. Even the sync between the two sucks.

Pros

  • It's extremely reliable - I have never lost any data and rely on the automated features to only contact the right people at the right time.
  • It's usable directly by communications/PR people like me - and does not need IT experts to get involved.
  • It's super easy to just "collect" the information which has been gathered. I love the way I can export my contacts to excel (and other formats) whenever I want.
  • The integration with Zoho CRM is key. It makes creating segmented and targeted lists very easy. Plus, it keeps stats updated within the CRM module.
  • Its UI is simple and easy to use. There are likely some that are flashier, but simple stupid works well for our approach.
  • Sending out campaigns is a pain free process and can be managed from the mobile app. The reports and stats available once the campaign is sent are very helpful.

Cons

  • Import is sometimes slow.
  • Seeing the segment for a mailing switches to the result list. Would be good to stay in the mailing.
  • Limited number of syncs. If you run lots of mailing lists that require regular updates with Zoho CRM, you may find yourself short.

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

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

Better focus on automation.
Campaigns came with Zoho CRM, so that's the ONLY reason I use this product. I can't justify paying for MailChimp when I have a free product. BUT, if I paid for this I would have switched a long time ago. In fact, I would have never picked it because it doesn't even compare to what providers like MailChimp can offer.

Return on Investment

  • We're now able to centralize all of our data and manage all different types of marketing processes in one place
  • The automation aspect is great - saves a lot of time and also forces us to actively think about our lead management processes
  • The cost of the system is worth it for email marketing functionality alone. We were easily able to replace our previous email marketing system with 7Sheep.
  • Our sales team is doing really well because of the CRM tool. The campaigns tool has made zero difference to our bottom line. If I sent more emails I would have switched to a service provider like MailChimp over a year ago.
