I recommend others to have this platform with [their] other CRM’s to easily decrease [their] work burden and increase productivity in the organization. It is a great platform to create, manage, and execute the bulk of email campaigns without any disruption in work and no hurdles in providing reporting in real-time. [Autoklose is] a completely robust and modernized system that we are using in our organization.

BlueHornet is a great platform for a small or medium size business that is graduating from the "free" platforms and wants more features. It delivers a generally easy to use interface and HTML editor. The concept of segments as implemented by Blue Hornet is not standard, but it allows fairly powerful segmentation capabilities that are easy for a marketer to use. Why choose a more complicated, expensive platform if you do not need or use their advanced features? Whistles and bells are attractive, but a potential user should be realistic about their immediate needs and the needs they will have over the next year. BlueHornet has seen some history of instability. If you need to send mission-critical transactional messages like password resets, it may not be the best choice, but for a budget-conscious email marketer, it is a reasonable option.

Pros

Autoklose

  • Autoklose organizes thousands of email contacts and campaigns for you. Emailing from company servers can be comatose, time consuming and damaging to the companies spam score. This product eliminates that issue entirely while providing even better results.
  • Diverse Campaign options with scheduling- Less hours spent building and more time increasing lead flow. Productivity booster.
  • Keeps company emails out of spam!

  • API functionality, alongside reporting, is unparalleled in an environment where you may not have IT support to build out tools.
  • The user interface is easy to understand, allowing users to have control over the creative delivery for MIME, HTML, text and mobile ads.
  • It allows deliverability experts to throttle deliveries by selecting mailing domain and IP pairs, granting access to stats on these individual paired delivery tools.

Cons

Autoklose

  • The system is not designed to send out hundreds of emails within the hour. Thus if you have timely information, and you have a large list, it will generally take many hours to execute.
  • Related to the above, timing of email delivery does jot exist nor can it be customized by timezone.

  • I have used Blue Hornet over the last few years as it is the selected email platform used by my content provider. I have never used a more glitchy platform! Every time I use it I run into broken links, glitches and kinks. Their tech team is very quick to blame your machine - but I have access to several machines on all major OS platforms, and I run into the same issues every time.
  • The Blue Hornet user interface is poor and clunky. They have a great looking homepage - but you can tell that there focus is on selling and not on current clients. This is plainly apparent by the fact that the login button is buried at the very bottom of the page and difficult to find the first time you look for it. Not to mention the fact that the user interface itself is nowhere near as smooth and polished as their branded website is. Additionally, their reports are often inaccurate.
  • I would suggest any serious marketer looking to execute an email campaign with Blue Hornet to look elsewhere. I have reached out to my content provider to ask that they provide support on a different system - and was kindly informed that they are working around the clock to make this happen due to the overwhelmingly negative criticism of Blue Hornet from their clients.

Although BlueHornet offers helpful testing capabilities, the ESP is a bit outdated. There is a lot of room for aesthetics improvement as they are not appealing. The reporting tool is usually broken, and reporting either no, or wrong metrics. If this ESP were to update their design, as well as fix the reporting tool, I think this platform would be much better.

It is well set out from a user interface perspective and once you understand how it works you understand the power and the logic of how it is done. Like any software it helps to be a frequent user, but Autoklose lets you set up campaigns in the shortest possible time based on experience with other systems that I have used.

There were three tabs used to navigate throughout the system called, "publish," "engage," and, "measure." These three tabs made the site very user friendly and all features easy to find

Shawn and Jelena have gone above and beyond to make sure I have had the support I needed to get our team up and running. I see opportunities to improve our implementation and I hope we can work together to make it happen so that we can boost the ROI quickly.

I wasn't there when they first got it, but when I got there there were only a few people that knew a little bit about it. There was A LOT that we didn't know. Then BlueHornet came and had some workshops and we learned a lot that we didn't even know existed. They were doing a lot of things wrong before BlueHornet came and showed up more about the tool

Alternatives Considered

Autoklose

Mailshake is more complicated because it's a direct email sender, but it gives you its opinion on the type of messages you may send. The advantage Autoklose takes is the data base and it's more of a lead gen system. LeadFuze is on course with Autokloze. It seems LeadFuze has more adaptability in my opinion in regards to LinkedIn, etc.

When BH was chosen, we still used Xert to send out our marketing emails because of the sheer size of the list and the volume of emails we had.

Return on Investment

Autoklose

  • It has definitely helped us with our manufacturers - another arrow in our technology quiver that helps us to differentiate ourselves from our competition.
  • The platform is still fairly new to us, however we are seeing some results of marketing efforts - customers have responded to us with inquiries based upon the campaign we are running.
