Likelihood to Recommend

ActiveCampaign

For the small business who is just getting started or has a list smaller than 2,500 contacts, ActiveCampaign is a leader in smart communication. Compared with free (or cheap) alternatives like MailChimp or Constant Contact, the feature set provides a lot more value. The one real caveat here is that you have to really want to use the features. For someone who is happy to just send out their monthly newsletter, this might be more than you need.

Zoho Campaigns

It is an excellent complement for other applications of the suite. I like to share and keep active services and products newsletters, because they may be attractive to existing customers or prospects. Ideally, I want them to visit the website and thus allow me to measure its performance and know what was the most attractive part and where I can improve.

  • Definitely they should improve the editor more.
  • There are others newsletter softwares that have more complete and easier to use functions.
  • The buttons to share must be better, more updated and easier to place.
  • If possible, guarantee inbox

Alternatives Considered

Backend user experience is much more streamlined and robust than AWeber. AWeber also triggers weird spam wall blocks occasionally when integrating with other system’s automated forms. MailChimp simply doesn’t have the features I need.

In my experience, I liked MailChimp a lot because of the many features it has. In comparison with Zoho Campaigns, I feel that it is superior but what I find most helpful, and the main reason why I use Zoho Campaign, is that the applications I use can be integrated and I can see statistics and do more. I know that Zoho also allows integration with MailChimp, but I prefer to follow the line.

Return on Investment

  • It's overall price point is a positive attribute, but the phrase "you get what you pay for" certainly applies here.
  • The negative impact comes with having to answer "I'm not sure I'm able to get that data" when posed with a question from clients or one's own leadership group.
