Autoklose

It's best used for quick and easy campaign creation. I haven't used it for a full on Marketing Automation Platform, so I can't speak to it's effectiveness as compared to a Eloqua or Marketo. But certainly cheaper and easier to implement.

Constant Contact

I think it really is a great resource for smaller non-profits and those with smaller development/marketing teams. While permission based marketing should provide you with a larger opening percentage, we struggle with that. If someone doesn't sign up, they don't get the emails. In this case, sending it to your contact list outside of Constant Contact is better. But the templates inside Constant Contact offer a better visual result in my opinion. I do not have strong design skills and need the templates.

Pros

Autoklose

  • Saves me time with prospecting
  • It helps with the challenge of personalizing and a lot of outreach
  • I am able to be agile, when I get an idea, or see an opening, I can act, not waste time getting ready, [I'm] always ready.

Constant Contact

  • Importing new emails is extremely fast and easy. This is important because there are times where emails need to be sent out ASAP, so being able to import a new mailing list quickly allows that to happen in a timely manner.
  • Customization of the look and feel of the email. Sending out emails that look the same becomes boring to the recipients, so being able to change the look every time makes it more likely they will engage in the material.

Cons

Autoklose

  • Could have some LinkedIn integrations but those are not so common.
Amir Reiter | TrustRadius Reviewer

Constant Contact

  • The fee structure is based on the number of contacts, so rather than store all of our email contacts on Constant Contacts, we try to add and delete lists to keep the monthly cost down. This can be slightly tedious for the cost-conscious company.
  • While there is a 60-day free trial, there is no free version for extended use. For the small business, a longer free version during lean months or for further analysis would be helpful.

There is no doubt that we are going to renew Constant Contact. We have not just invested a lot of time in learning and creating a great looking product but we have developed a strong database of information that allows us to track how we are doing for each newsletter. This supports our goals of creating products that residents desire and are excited to receive.

There is always room for improvement. I don't know how they test their systems, but they should invite not-so computer savvy people to test it. If I, as an expert have problems, they need to think like the technophobe. Since I've used Constant Contact in the past as part of my former employment, I have not viewed any of the tutorials and just jumped in to work on my client's newsletter. With that said, I found some areas easy and some a bit cumbersome

The system seemed quite slow sometimes. Specifically, there was sometimes a delay in sends if it was during a high traffic period. There were time-outs when uploading new code for an email, and a lag in reporting analytics which was sometimes as long as 72 hours

I think the overall support for Constant Contact has always been incredible; I have nothing negative to say. Our customer support representative was attentive, easy to understand, and very knowledgeable. I never felt like I wasn't a priority of his and my issues, while very small, were fixed in a very short time frame.

Implementation is very easy for someone who wants to send out the “batch and blast” type newsletters. If you want to use their templates with no customizations, the product works fine. However, the more customizations you get into involving link color, etc, that’s where things can get tricky for someone who may not be familiar with coding

Alternatives Considered

Autoklose

The ones I have used in the past were parts or pieces of the flow. Something goes wrong it's back and worth, this has to talk to that, I don't have the patience or the time. Now I can use one tool for a greater part of the client life cycle from lead to partner.

Constant Contact

Constant Contact is the best value for the investment. There are cheaper solutions - but not better. When you want to make a good impression, you want Constant Contact to be your provider (when we see Mailchimp emails we just delete!)

Very reliable in sending email campaigns and controlling the recipients so that no contact is sent the same email more than once, even if they are on a resent list

Return on Investment

Autoklose

  • I've driven more leads from my Autoklose campaigns than any other source.
Billy Mitchell | TrustRadius Reviewer

Constant Contact

  • We have seen an uptick in fundraising as we are better able to target donors based on how many times they open our email, click on links in the email, etc.
  • We have set up an email campaign for new donors that runs automatically when he or she first donates. This has helped us retain donors and receive additional donations.
  • Constant Contact has freed up some time for our marketing team to work on other projects because once a campaign is created and scheduled, it runs on autopilot.
