Autoklose

Autoklose is hands-down the best email marketing campaign manager I have ever seen or used. I also highly recommend it for list-building if you do not have clean and robust data for your target audience.

Twilio SendGrid

Twilio SendGrid Email Marketing is perfect for organizations both big and small that may be on a lower budget. It is a very affordable solution for users with a large number of email addresses. While other providers may offer "free" storage for email contacts... the cost to send campaigns to those contacts can be very costly. While they do not offer widgets or other integrations for websites/social media... it is very easy to import and manage contacts. Additionally, they offer a comprehensive self-help support section online, but it's also easy to hop on the phone or on chat with a rep if you ever need technical support or assistance. Twilio SendGrid Email Marketing may not be the most affordable solution for users who are not currently sending email campaigns to their users, but are simply storing email contacts

Pros

Autoklose

  • Ease of use.
  • Multiple emails in a sequence, with A/B options as well.
  • Data Tracking and Analytics are on point.
  • Easy to share exports and report data with other stakeholders.
  • Great integration with my CRM.
Ryan Christian | TrustRadius Reviewer

Twilio SendGrid

  • Drag and drop email designer for transactional emails - super nice even though I do code, it's much quicker and easier to implement without code.
  • Very simple implementation. Only a few lines of code need to be added in our backend and boom we were up and running in less than a day.
  • Listening to customer feedback. They regularly send emails about new features and ask for feedback to improve their software.
  • Some of the cheapest and best dedicated IPs.
  • Easy integration and setup between marketing and transactional emails. Super helpful to have everything in one place.

Cons

Autoklose

  • If you're a real beginner then maybe having multiple campaigns running can be a little difficult to manage or understand the flow of the data. But their customer service has been incredible when I have questions.
Billy Mitchell | TrustRadius Reviewer

Twilio SendGrid

  • Actually viewing previous emails dispatched. SendGrid does not have this feature - although it provides numbers on emails dispatched within 3 days for the cheapest plan.
  • The service asks you to pay more (although a minimal amount) to have visibility on email activity upto 30 days in the past.
  • The API doesn't allow an export of a report of email activity over a period of time. It can be quite frustrating at times to be limited in this way.
  • Their customer support isn't the best. Certainly some room for improvement there.

We have been able to get six sales reps up to speed in just a few weeks. The adoption rate is going up daily and after getting more campaigns going all around the company, there is a buzz about what Autoklose can do and how else we can use the tool.

It has the potential to be really cool. However, it feels as if it was created by developers for developers (and I work with developers, yet even for me the instrument was somewhat not easy to use - just read SendGrid's help manuals...) However, if you are into data and your way of thinking is more mathematical rather than lyrical, you'll enjoy this instrument

I often get return calls within an hour from Autoklose. They are also very quick to respond to emails. They are willing to dive in and help on any issue

Twilio SendGrid Email API is everything we want it to be, and we have no reason to look for any other solution. Features and pricing match exactly what we need. As developers for SaaS products, Twilio SendGrid Email API provides a great service. I hope that they stay this way and don't inflate the service with too many marketing oriented features, because there are other tools for that and Twilio SendGrid Email API is a API for sending email first and foremost.

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.
Tibor Shanto | TrustRadius Reviewer

Twilio SendGrid

With ExpressPigeon, SendGrid stacks up very well and actually provides just as much functionality for us as ExpressPigeon, but costs surrounding that use was advantageous with ExpressPigeon. SendGrid has recently added functionality that brings it closer to Act-On, specifically on the marketing automation end. This really allows users to create long-term campaigns.

Return on Investment

Autoklose

  • It has helped me gain a few hours a week back by automating my processes.
  • It has helped me refine my messaging.
  • It has been useful in experimenting with various sequences.
Neal Benedict | TrustRadius Reviewer

Twilio SendGrid

  • Our clients experience significant ROI from their web forms - without receipt of forms, many of them would not still be in business.
  • As a solution for clients' sites, we find SendGrid is a fast installation and a 1 stop problem solver, saving us man-hours.
