ActiveDEMAND

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.

Cons

ActiveDEMAND

  • 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.

Alternatives Considered

ActiveDEMAND

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

It's VERY easy to use - drag & drop interface, not bulky.Excellent live chat & a phone customer support! Much cheaper than its competitors.Multifunctional (and has more functions and applications within than Marketo)Lots of templates ready to use.Very straightforward with tips popping up when needed. Creating drip campaigns has never been easier.Social media bulk upload (very useful!)

Return on Investment

ActiveDEMAND

  • Simplified email marketing and event management
  • Better tracking of leads
  • Better intelligence about which initiatives are working well and where future opportunities lie
  • Less reliant on IT department/third party to execute our online marketing

  • Great effort to design first journeys. Later knowledge increases and you can make a lot of tests and changes in your process very quickly
  • Very efficient, dynamic CTAs helping us to generate messages based on customer interest
  • Some concepts of filtering are difficult to understand on Vbout's Journey bulider, so we had to make a lot effort to get our conditions on Journey's processes
