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.

I could not begin to think of a situation where marketing
automation is not appropriate, particularly for small and medium-sized
businesses that often times are challenged with fewer resources. Lead
generation, customer acquisition, conversion, and reselling all require the
consistency and fluidity that marketing automation can provide. For Capitol
Corridor, we are limited by the capacity of our trains, so we cannot oversell. By
doing so, we would lose business. And we’ve leveraged marketing automation to
help us manage our train capacity as well as create transparency in our service
available to help close deals successfully.

Pros
7Sheep
  • 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.

Cons
7Sheep
  • I know that they are working on a simpler way to send a test e-mail to yourself. This will streamline my activities as well and I look forward to that system change (which was suggested by a client. I have also suggested improvements which have been implemented.)
  • I miss an easy unsubscribe feature (like you get in MailChimp). Overall, 7Sheep's system is more flexible (good) but that does make it more complex to split up (not so good).
  • Setting up the SPF record in our DNS system was flexible and easy but for DKIM integration we had to contact the 7Sheep support. They do not check or show the necessary records in the tool. Customer service was great, though, so not a very big problem, just a bit of a nuisance.

  • Some of the field mappings between Leads and Deals are not always perfect.
  • Social media interactions are not captured (i.e. you cannot make a case from a post)

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 Rating
7Sheep
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

I've mostly used survey monkey and google forms and doodle for small inexpensive jobs - anything more sophisticated always seemed to cost more than the actual fee I charge. 7sheep does everything they do, but it automates a lot of the processing, for a cost which is affordable and makes me more efficient - as I can use my subscription for different clients.

Zoho has a good price point. I would encourage that the add-on pricing be less aggressive.

Return on Investment
7Sheep
  • With the translation support we have translated forms into Spanish for our producers and this has been a really positive benefit for them as a partner.
  • I am able to monitor interest in different products very easily and so re-target particular varieties to specific regions.
  • Text message campaigns mean that we can directly engage: especially for physical meetings, tasting reminders and so forth.
