When choosing a marketing automation system, it is important to think of what exactly you want it to do. I think no matter what you are hoping to get out of a marketing automation platform, you can achieve it with ActiveDEMAND. It can be used for simple/basic marketing email sending and campaign execution or it can be used to develop a microsite, create sales and marketing kiosks, run multi-step campaigns, host protected assets or whatever you want to do with it. You can easily choose (or ignore) the modules and features to be as creative as you choose to be.

I like that you can dial out so many leads and double the efficiency of the agent. The only thing that bothers me is sometimes, system down issue.

  • PhoneBurner connects to Hubspot so that my team doesn't have to go back and forth.
  • The amount of time it takes to get through a list of calls has almost been cut in half.
  • The opportunity to do leave a voicemail without having to leave it on each call is a huge time saver.

Cons
JumpDEMAND Inc.
  • Reporting - Though the reporting is extensive and very very good... I sometimes miss a simplified view of email opens/clicks/link clicks etc.
  • Don't get me wrong, you can get to this data in ActiveDEMAND relatively easily, the default views through the campaign dashboard are just quite detailed (which some people would probably prefer) and I just don't think that we need that level of reporting on first glance. That being said, I do love the option to drill down and uncover the complex detailed data when i do want it (ActiveDEMAND is very good at this).
  • One element of reporting that I would also like would be an event registrant report showing all registered people (this part exists) and their responses on the registration form they completed to register for the event. (These things would be dietary restrictions, industry, customized responses to other event related questions).
  • I also wish the reports autorefreshed more frequently.
  • ICS Files - Right now there are work arounds for loading an ICS file (Calendar meeting invite file) that can be accessed in campaign assets. I just wish this was more native to the tool.
  • Archive Filing - Now, first of all, it is so amazing that ActiveDEMAND even has an archiving feature... I LOVE this. One small downside, however, is that the archiving cannot be organized using a folder structure or anything. I would like to be able to group my live events together, then group my webinars together etc.

PhoneBurner as I said before, has an excellent graphical interface, super friendly, with menus that the user can easily find and program the calls. The layout is good, fast, and has little delay and errors. I really like the tool and from the beginning, I had no difficulty with the usability.

Vertical Response wasn't a full marketing platform at the time when we used it, but it was clunky and the tech support wasn't easy to use. I like the one-on-one response we get from ActiveDemand and really being on a first name basis with the folks there

We selected PhoneBurner because it is very easy to integrate with Zoho CRM and if you have a silver plan, you can do a lot such as Sending SMS and unlimited calling, you can also record and drop voicemail, timezone calling is automatic. It is a good dialer to use if you are part of sales.

  • [I believe] it has cost me a fortune in wasted time trying to make the Hubspot integration [work] (to no avail).
  • [I believe] if the Hubspot integration actually worked, we would probably get decent ROI from the speedier calling.
