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.

Signpost is helping us on a very large scale in managing the reviews and increasing positive reviews about the organization. The support team is great, the dashboard is fully functional. I will recommend this tool to other organizations [and] it will definitely help them to enhance their feedback system.

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.

Signpost

  • The best feature that I like the most and have been using for some time is their marketing tool. Signpost makes marketing an easy task. It has enhanced our productivity.
  • As I did things manually in the past but now Signpost has made this very much easier for me to just trust their marketing tool to do marketing according to the algorithm.
  • It helps me to have more organic views on the platform and more positive reviews on the newsletter.
  • The automated system asks for reviews from the customer which makes it even more helpful in changing and advancing new things.
  • It also changes our approach to the work and with the automated extremely functional setup it increases our positive reviews which is good for the organization.

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

  • [I feel] the campaign tab needs a lot of improvement. The campaign part is not up to mark. Need a lot of changes to be more precise and relevant to the actual campaign niche.
  • Another big drawback that I discovered while using it that it does not allow to send text messages to customers unless the customer accepts an invite first.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Alternatives Considered

ActiveCampaign

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.

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!

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

  • The support team is very professional. I had problems while using Signpost in the past and I contacted their support on that matter.
  • They responded very professionally, listen[ed] to each and every problem related to the work, and doing hindrance to the flow of work with the full-fledged solution to the problem.
  • This makes me more confident in using the platform more in depth.
