ActiveCampaign

ActiveCampaign is especially good for businesses that would like to connect their online store with their email marketing platform to maximize returns. What sets ActiveCampaign apart from all other email platforms is its ability to lead potential buyers through automated flows. If you are just looking to deliver your monthly newsletters ActiveCampaign is likely too much power, and price for what you need. But if you want the most customizable experience for your customers and potential customers then ActiveCampaign truly stands alone as the best available platform.

To this day, I have not found a use case where Quick Base was not a contender. If someone asks for a solution, I find a way to make it work in Quick Base. The true challenge is to ensure documentation is always created for every application. Data Dictionaries are extremely useful for future developers when application ownership is handed off.

Pros

ActiveCampaign

  • The automation triggers and workflow commands available are impressive. Very robust, it's so robust I don't know what's capable of doing since I stick to foundational triggers
  • The tagging system and segmentation approach is convenient since one can create segments from different places
  • I was relatively simple to navigate around the platform. (finding where are the lists, campaigns, automations.
  • I liked the quick ability to search for specific contacts based on status and tags.

Quickbase

  • Create reports on the fly to know what's happening in the company.
  • Build dashboards for users in different roles so they can focus on their specific tasks.
  • Mobile apps let people use Quick Base anywhere they have Internet access.
  • Automatically send notifications based on criteria.
  • Powerful form design.

Cons

ActiveCampaign

  • With the high level of customization, can be complex or overwhelming for some new users
  • Would like the ability to add some features a la carte instead of having to upgrade
  • Some reports can feel a little limited and the ability to create custom reports and charts/graphs would be nice
Kim McCumber | TrustRadius Reviewer

Quickbase

  • It would be nice to have a more interactive UI in line with the kanban report that was released. Things such as drag and drop records to update data.
  • More flexibility with purchasing options, such as any number of users and less expensive space options.
  • Being able to view multiple levels of cascading children in a single form.

For our clients (Course creators, event hosts & managers, business leaders that have existing marketing in place and want to grow past 6 & 7 figures), we highly recommend ActiveCampaign, because:
  • Broad capabilities - ability to create individual emails to specific segments (the right people) at the right time (predictive sending for the greatest likelihood of conversion) and automated flows so that our clients are generating revenue
  • Integrations - We run ads for our clients, and ActiveCampaign automatically creates dynamic audiences for our social media platforms so that our ads are going to audiences that have just opened or clicked emails (or that follows up with people who haven't engaged). The number of programs that ActiveCampaign connects to makes the marketing a seamless experience for our clients.
  • Visualization of data - With the flow builder, you can see where people are in the process, what tags are being applied overall - makes it so much easier to create email marketing solutions for clients.
  • Reporting - The ability to see specific open, click, and conversion rates in one place.
  • Outstanding customer support - Having the ActiveCampaign team behind you makes it easy to recommend and use it for clients.

With Salesforce being such a presence in business operations, we've had to "fend off" being asked to replace our QB apps with in-house/out of the box apps from Salesforce. With the cost of Quick Base and having to justify keeping it instead of Salesforce, it's been a challenge we've been fighting.

ActiveCampaign has been the easiest marketing automation software we have ever used. They provide tips throughout the entire process of anything you are building. Their support team through LIVE CHAT has been extremely fast and helpful. The monthly meetings provided with the enablement team has helped us through several large and urgent needs.

Quick Base has done everything we have asked it to do and then some. Our original goal was to have one system for CRM that encompassed both the sales process and the customer management. We have gone w-a-y beyond that with analytics, project management, system bug logging, and historical effort reporting.

I've never had ActiveCampaign down for maintenance. I'm sure they update things, but they always seem to manage to stay live. Also, I've had very few errors, if any. None come to mind. This might be to due to the fact I focus on building things as simply as possible, but I also believe it's due to the quality of the software.

Once we did get Quick Base configured and customized it was reliably available when we needed it. We may have had one or two occasions when the product was inaccessible but those were few. The greatest challenge with its availability was its difficulty with integrating with our systems.

ActiveCampaign works seamlessly with the other tools I use. It integrates directly with most. And if no direct integration is available, there is almost always one you can make using Zapier. I've yet to run into a technical error that prevented me from doing something I wanted to be able to do.

Some of our tables that hold over a million records are starting to perform poorly, with some summaries taking over 20 seconds to load. This may be an indication that it is best to archive old data when reaching large volumes like this.

This might be the best part. The chat support lady offered to make a video to help me solve my problem. I worked in customer service for years and I've never done that, lol. So, if they're offering things like that, I can only imagine that they'd be able to handle most any issue you throw at them.

The help and documentation are top notch and available 24/7. The community also provides an additional layer of assistance and creativity in problem solving. For bugs and support the QuickBase team themselves are second to none. Immediate response with a case number and personalized support. They do not quit until they've solved your issue - even if your issue is that you're confused about how something works and misinterpreted or couldn't find the documentation. They'll helpfully and knowledgeably walk you through any problem from the syntax of a difficult formula to enterprise level governance and data management issues.

Very satisfied with our implementation in our professional medical practice, allowing us to be on top of client service, and not miss out on crucial information and insights. Marketing is often neglected in professional practices and ActiveCampaign solved this problem with aplomb.

I was not directly involved with the initial account implementation, only a bystander. For the app I directly implemented for my department only, I wish I had know to create an app diagram first. I don't remember if that was suggested. I think that would be a great help tip tool when a new app is created, to have a page with a check list of what is needed or how to get started. If you are a regular app builder, then you can bypass it or have the ability to turn it off in the app settings.

Alternatives Considered

MC was great but was too expensive and limited in scope for unlimited send caps. AWeber has a good email builder but at that time didn't have webhooks, making it difficult to use to meet our needs. ActiveCampaign solved both of these problems by giving us unlimited sends and providing a robust API to manage our registration process and offer our members a way to update their details in real-time.

We like Quickbase because it is truly low code and easy to learn. We are able to quickly get new staff up to speed using the Quickbase University. The price is also much more reasonable than other options.

My web designer told me about Active Campaign and although I don't recall which platform I had before, I LOVE Active Campaign and its user friendliness. The transition was seamless and I've never had a problem with functionality or server failure.
Active Campaign provides so many features, and makes it easy for non-techies to maneuver around the site with ease. They capture information and put it in an easy-to-read format.
At this point, I don't think I'd ever use any other platform!

It has evolved really well with our company, but there is a hard limit to the table size that has begun to affect us and not let us grow. The table size limit is set at 500 MB and we have had to jump through quite a few hoops to be able to get by.

Return on Investment

ActiveCampaign

  • I went from 0-50 new emails on my list in a matter of weeks, due to the simplicity and functionality of the landing pages/forms.
  • Because of the great email tracking features, I was able to observe and shift my emails so that I went from a 15% open rate to a 50% open rate.
Triana Garrett | TrustRadius Reviewer

Quickbase

  • Improved Customer Satisfaction by reducing time to market that too with a product with a great user experience.
  • Huge Cost Saving by FTEs reduction and Improved productivity
  • Added efficiencies
  • The client asking for QuickBase but having a huge user base, due to licensing cost we have to offer another alternative solution.
