For product promotion and newsletters, I would surely recommend Campayn. We use this software for sending weekly newsletters to our clients. This software adds a lot of information with beautiful designs so that our clients get a good idea of our communication. With the help of this software, we send our digital brochures also. It can easily handle this process and gives us good results.
Read full review Pros Establishes a simple but very decisive way of how to perform specialized marketing work. It includes the monitoring of advertising networks or account management on digital platforms and social networks. The support is solid; it takes all the suggestions and doubts I have regarding the software. Read full review The user interface of this software is very attractive. It helps users navigate the website easily. It provides a free plan also which is very useful to evaluate this tool before purchasing any subscription plan. It also provides free email templates which can be edited as per the requirement. Read full review Cons The designer tools, especially for emails, were often difficult to use. The formatting of the text would be all over the place and change / refuse to change at random. Moving boxes around was shifty and sometimes nearly impossible. It just wasn't customizeable enough. No "undo" functionality either. The only way to collect information expansively over time (there's a term Act-On uses for it, I can't recall) where it adds questions to the form each time a user fills it out, is if the person were to fill out the same form multiple times. I know this does happen for some websites/resources, but as a company that wanted to collect new information each time someone filled out any form, regardless of the resource or the URL, that was simply not an option, and that doesn't really make a lot of sense. I know it's not really possible to track someone but if they filled out the first part of the form and then it added new questions to answer, and then they submitted and got through the gating, that would actually be helpful. There was no "trash can" of sorts in case you deleted something by mistake. This could be so stress-inducing if it was a major project. My coworker did this once, contacted Act-On, they couldn't even recover it. Read full review Personally I am not very impressed with its reporting feature. It is not as comprehensive as its competitors. I found less segmentation options for contacts. It should be slightly more. Its customer service is not very active and quick. It takes lot of time.

It's my single biggest asset in my current role. With limited resources, its enabled Anachron to punch well above our weight marketing wise and although we're still at the beginning of our journey I know the system can scale with us

It's good, but not quite brilliant. Some parts of the interface are still a bit outdated. The product has been evolving very fast, though, and I believe in a few months it will be up there with the best of them, interface wise as well.

I have always found them quick to respond to my query by web inquiry. In those instances when I call, I have always reached help quickly. They are conscientious and skilled in discussing my concern and finding a solution to my problem. Other tech organizations should use Act-On as a model for top-notch customer service.

Great for the most part. Sometimes there are little lags, but that's likely because I'm requesting to see a lot of data at one time.

Dan D. was great. He took the time to understand how I needed the program to run, and was very flexible to our special CRM setup.

Act-On had a lot of resources, and their staff was great at answering any questions I had to make sure we got started on the right foot. Looking back, I would have preferred some additional training sessions since we didn't have any previous experience with Marketing Automation and best practices.

What impressed me most is that Act-On showed full committment in making our implementation successful, even when it required additional support from their team. This gave me a lot of warm and fuzzy feelings. Most other software software vendors are not anywhere close to being this responsive and effective

is comparable because of its price point but surpasses Act-On in its tools and intuitive interface. We selected Act-On because of the pricing model and thought all things would be close to parity with other options. It depends on the team you have. If you have developers and a marketing team that knows some html/css, you can get by with Act-On.

I used to send emails through Sendloop but I was not happy with the editor. I used to compromise on many features to create beautiful newsletters. But in Campayn I found the easy-to-use email editor which helped me create beautiful newsletters as per my requirements. Its drag and drop feature saved lots of time. So I started using this software from then on.

Before I feel like I need more features, the Act-On customer service reps are contacting me telling about new features as part of my account.
Read full review Return on Investment With the Automated Series, we were able to put in place campaigns that generated revenue that took no time to continue running once set up. This was a positive feature allowing employees to work on another project while the campaign ran on their own. Read full review Digital reach is more cost-effective than physical reach. With Campayn, we send our information anywhere in this world at very little cost. It helps us to increase our customer base by adding sign-up forms in our emails. We don't need to print a lot of materials as we can make digital formats of those materials and send them via this software. Read full review ScreenShots
