ActiveCampaign

ActiveCampaign is not for everyone. It is well suited for those who understand email marketing or have experience with email marketing and automations. If you are not going to use it for the automations, it's probably not worth using it. You are just as well served using a less expensive and simpler program that is easier to use.

Streamsend

The best scenarios would be email marketing campaigns such as eBlasts, Evites and newsletter/notifications. I believe Streamsend would be less appropriate for overall branding campaign and strategy.

Pros

  • Email automation
  • Lead generation
  • Communicating effectively with different parts of your list

  • Streamsend reports allows us to see who is opening our email blasts and it even pinpoints how many viewers then go onto look at our social media sites and website.
  • Streamsend allows you to go back and review past email blasts. This prevents me from creating marketing material similar to what I have done in the past.
  • The site shows you who's email address was undeliverable. This helps me to weed out any old e-mails or individuals who requested to block the blasts.

Cons

  • We think the workflow, from creating a list until designing the automation, should be a little more intuitive
  • First-time users must watch quick tutorials to move quickly inside the application if they want to better understand the system

  • The amount of creative elements could be improved for a more modern design look and feel
  • Implementing social media integration onto each email campaign. Whether it be social sharing or following
  • Provide reporting in a more presentation-style look when presenting to clients for review

I used Streamsend initally before trying Emma, Constant Contact and MailChimp. I can see there are many difference between each platform but prefer to use MailChimp.

Alternatives Considered

As mentioned before, Infusionsoft is a very robust system, but we often found it too complicated for what we needed. The system was often slow, it's expensive, and we only used a handful of the many features Infusionsoft offered. ActiveCampaign was definitely the better choice. It does everything we need it to and it allows us to grant our franchises more access over their own lead systems.

I have used Constant Contact in the past and have to say that Streamsend is easier to use and track analytics.

  • I saw an impact on our ROI when using Streamsend for our weekly newsletters, since we used them as a redirect back to our website for new business
  • The only negative impact I can think of would be the loss of some our registrants through our email database. Some thought that we sent out Eblasts and newsletters to frequently.
  • It did help with faster lead conversion as we saw higher traffic and visitors to our website through direct click-through from our email campaigns
