Autopilot

Autopilot has a friendly and bright appeal offering a code-free automation experience that makes it easy to build complex automated workflows. Anyone can start creating workflows using the drag-and-drop builder even without technical knowledge. Teams utilize the notes and graphics feature to collaborate on automation workflows providing a much easier way to understand workflows created by someone else.

Cakemail

If you're managing a large email campaign, with 500+ subscribers, Cakemail is a wonderful service that can help anyone, with any level of experience – get their message out there. It has a useful interface, stimulates solid workflow, and cuts down on all the time and development that goes into coding an email campaign. Basically any level of email campaign, Cakemail is great for that

Pros

Autopilot

  • Very easy to use automation builder with many great options and integrations. Lets us tailor incredibly precise campaigns through use of Autopilot's own features, plus its tight integrations with data from sources like Segment.
  • Easy and powerful email editing and creation built-in. No need for email template coding.
  • Autopilot allows marketers to have full control and implement new web forms to capture leads quickly with its automatic form detection. No need to save custom form data to our own backend saves our development team time.

Cakemail

  • Managing my contacts and campaigns has given me fantastic results and has been really easy through Cakemail's interface.
  • Customer support is amazing – if you have a problem with anything, they're always available to help.
  • Their flexible design tools are very easy to manage – there's really no learning curve which is nice.

Cons

Autopilot

  • Limited Design Customization: If you're an experienced marketer and are used to the unlimited customization capabilities of larger platforms (or coding your own templates), you might find Autopilot's options to be limiting. It's great for a beginner user who shouldn't be encumbered with those options, but I could see if being frustrating for others.
Emily Muhoberac | TrustRadius Reviewer

Cakemail

  • An external package – like PHP support – Cake's component doesn't have that.
  • I'd like to be able to view my user click rate and click frequency at the same time, to be able to compare it – they don't offer that.
  • There's always room for improvement – but what Cakemail does well, it does very, very well.

Alternatives Considered

Autopilot

How would I say this, for me Autopilot is a whole other tool then the other MA tools I use. Most other MA tools focus on a lot of options and things you can do with it. But Autopilot seems to mainly focus on the visual builder to make automations, and they do that really well!The other tools are also great but more a "complete package solution" with a lot of options. And that can be overwhelming. So if you want a great easy-to-use workflow/automation builder and less of all the other options Autopilot is a great start.

Cakemail

I use MailChimp a lot, and to be honest, both are great programs. Should you go with either of these, you will not be disappointed. I'm just a little biased because I just started using Cakemail, and I fell in love with the program. It's really solid and they're always updating it

Return on Investment

Autopilot

  • Not sure. I cannot put a $ on it for ROI as I was the administrator and not part of the team that procured it. Time-wise I would say I spent less time using it than I previously had used in CloudPortal Services Manager.

  • Cakemail has given us a pretty positive response rate...we're always open to trying new technologies, but Cakemail has shown our subscriber clicks rise quite frequently in the last few campaigns we've sent out.
