ActiveCampaign

ActiveCampaign is perfect for teams that want a lightweight, easy to use email software which still has the ability to deeply integrate with your codebase/business logic (through tagging via their API and automations).It strikes the balance nicely between allowing developers and marketers to collaborate --- simply instruct the developers to tag users appropriately in the business logic / code base, and then the marketers can use AC's automations initiated by a tag to come up with whatever complex follow-up they desire (all without bugging the developers again).

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.

Cons

  • You can't create landing pages :(
  • The reporting section can be improve. The interface is not user-friendly at all. We have used another tool to visualize and analyze the results of our campaigns.

  • 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

It's easy to set up and accurate deliverability makes it one of my best choices for crucial product promotions. It also helps me with various integrations to reduce my time in creating a campaign.

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

Return on Investment

  • It allowed us to work with clients who objected to spending bigger amounts on CRM systems.
  • It requires additional work due to all integrations - that could be a negative if you don't account for that when you create your pricing structure.
