Autopilot

It's a great tool for email marketing and making automation flows with those emails. Also push your communication to multiple platforms (social media, SMS, WhatsApp, etc). It's easy to learn so for us easy to teach companies the basics of marketing automation. The clean interface and not to many functions don't make the tool too overwhelming. So for us, one of the better "get your feet wet" tools.

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.

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

Okta and Azure AD seem to work better for administering our email tenant and users for me comparatively. They just seem easier to use and I was already experienced with both.

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

  • Decreased the hours spend manually cleaning contact lists and prepping mass email sends.
  • Lift in overall email engagement, including deliverability, open and click rates, CTOR, etc. due to the ability to personalize and segment email lists.
  • Saves time for the entire sales team by automating many of their sales communication processes.

Cakemail

  • 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.
