Likelihood to Recommend

APSIS Pro

Works well, relatively easy to use - but lacks some up-to-date and modern features as well as look and feel. The support provided is OK but not world class. It is too bad as APSIS as a company is quite good at inspiring and providing insights into trends in email marketing.

Campaign Monitor

Campaign Monitor is helpful for a company that wants to take the next step to using a higher level email marketing service. It helps get you into automation, dynamic content, and more advanced segmentation. It’s a good step up for teams coming from MailChimp.

It’s not appropriate for companies who are wanting to send out content marketing emails with the intent of them being shared on social media. The social sharing is non existent and embarrassing.

Pros

APSIS Pro

  • We have a pre-designed template and pre-build elements and thus it is quite easy to compose nice looking newsletters.
  • Doing split-tests on subject, clicks etc. is quite easy and requires no tech help.
  • Imporing new contacts and adding to the list is straight forward.

Campaign Monitor

  • Campaign Monitor is great with its templates for emails and newsletters. They're well-designed and mobile optimized.
  • Changing the templates or making your own is very intuitive and easy to do, even if you have no web design experience.
  • The bank of emails and ways to segment them before sending is super helpful for us.

Cons

APSIS Pro

  • The user interface is not good. Too much scrolling and too many menues to navigate. Half of the pages are updated to a "new" look with the rest still being the (really) old design. This badly needs a make-over.
  • There is no one-click "send reminder to those who did not open". To send reminders, it is nescessary to build a filter a do a new send using the filter. Such a simple and often repeated task should be automated.
  • It is not possible to add a "Why did you leave us?"-page for opt-outs... Really misses this.
  • The statistics are too limited and to difficult to use - mostly due to the UI design as described above.

Campaign Monitor

  • No WYSIWYG editor -- while there are options to edit the templates, they are extremely limited.
  • Limited Source Code / Live Template Change View -- CM doesn't seem to support live changes to the source code like most other platforms do. For example, if I wanted to update the line-height in the source code of an email, I'd have to save the code in CM, then go preview, then make changes again if needed. Most other platforms have the ability to give live code update previews as they're being made.

The templates, while useful, are very locked down, This makes it very usable from a novice's standpoint, but also very inflexible from a designer's standpoint. Creating several version of the email campaign and using A/B testing was a powerful and easy-to-use feature, and the system also provides the option of automating the sending of emails once an A/B testing criteria is reached

Alternatives Considered

APSIS Pro

MailChimp offers more flexibilty but also seems a bit more complicated to use. We did not use it long enough to really get an idea of the positive and negative.

Campaign Monitor

Not as comprehensive as other email marketing platforms, and not as competitive when it comes to pricing for entry-level users. It does have advantages in the easy to use drag-and-drop editor, but not enough to truly stand out from the competition.

Return on Investment

APSIS Pro

  • We are still trying to figure out how to use this medium for sales. We have had some success with Black Monday sales, but in general we do not have much response to our emails.
  • We have increases our visibility with our customers by making sure to land in their mailbox regulary with nice looking messages.

Campaign Monitor

  • Easy to send out marketing email which has the highest return on investment of any form of marketing we do.
  • It's an easy recommendation to clients who are just getting started as part of a suite of tools we recommend that remove the barriers to being in touch with their clients and customers.
