Act-On

I think Act-On would work equally well for small to large companies. If you are less confident or experienced in automation and funneling, Act-On genuinely invests in the expertise to guide and support you so you can be continually learning and developing your skills and application for the platform. You never feel you are in the deep end

Pros

  • I have used a number of marketing automation systems over the years from Oracle to Salesforce. However none of these have been as easy to use from a platform perspective.
  • Its very intuitive and in a short period of weeks we have been able to set up the platform, fully integrate it with our systems and create lead scoring and funnel reports.
  • If I am ever stuck our amazing customer success manager is there to help us with weekly calls and demos which focus on our business needs and requirements.

  • The platform navigation is very smooth.
  • Easily switch from CRM to Marketing Automation tool
  • I like the featured when the leads goes directly into CRM if you have run the email campaign from the tool or anyone had subscribed to the blogs.

Cons

  • Reporting
  • Speed of unsubscribing contacts
  • Email building requires a high understanding of html if you face any issues with design or layout

  • More integration of software with the Marketing Automation Tool

Everything is there, sometimes it just takes a while to realize where it is or just how much the platform can do for you. If you dont use the system everyday it takes a bit of time to remember where you found things. Overall though its pretty easy to figure out

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.

Alternatives Considered

These other products do not hold a candle to all of the functionality of Act-On. Their technical support is slow and very impersonal. The ability to get adequate reporting, keep bounce rates low, and foster lead development are major benefits to the Act-On tool. Tool integration is easy and seamless, it does not require technical knowledge.

Great powerful tool and it's in the budget of our company and can perform all the tasks compared to others.

  • We just started using the tool. So far we are using it for initial purpose but looking at the platform it looks pretty good.
