Bananatag

Bananatag is very well suited to creating messages that are going to be used on a regular basis but don't require much in the way of changing or amending. It is also a very handy platform to track sending emails and the watermarking technology is very handy. As far as range of designs compared to something like Mailchimp it doesn't compare well.

Mixmax

A great, affordable option for startups that are looking for *just* email automation, read receipts, campaigning, and general enhancement. This provides a fairly comprehensive marketing kit for early-stage startups doing sales. For larger companies that are experimenting with different CRM options, it makes sense to purchase a more contemporary CRM option, like HubSpot, because everything works together very well rather than trying to make Mixmax work with an already-existing CRM option.

Pros

Bananatag

  • Easy to use and install, particularly with Gmail for business.
  • It has a simple feedback system, if a client reads an email, you get an emailed read receipt telling you the time of them doing so.
  • It runs in the background, is virtually undetectable and will not hinder any communication in the slightest.

Mixmax

  • Mixmax notifies me the second someone opens an email or clicks a link I've sent them.
  • If I cannot respond to a particular email in the moment, the reminder feature lets me set a specific day and time to be reminded.
  • The support team has been very quick to respond to any issues.

Cons

Bananatag

  • Changing the format/size of blocks.
  • The range/choice of blocks that can be used.

Mixmax

  • MixMax's base package could improve by having tasks. This feature is only available in enterprise tiers, which is unfortunate if you have a 1-2 person marketing team and want to improve productivity.
  • It would be great if MixMax offered more customization around triggers and actions within a sequence. If I could add in a new sequence within an existing sequence based on an action a recipient takes, that would be very helpful.
  • I would love if MixMax integrated with LinkedIn Sales Navigator for a seamless transition from saved leads in LinkedIn being populated in MixMax.

Have not really had many opportunities to use the support function but my experience was limited and a little bit clunky. It was not particularly responsive or helpful in terms of trying to resolve the query I was working on. I think the problem was solved by another member of the team that worked on designing their own template.

Every time I have reached out to Mixmax I automatically get an email from a trained professional who has perfect insight into my issue with an understandable reason to why I am having and issue offers me a solution. The wait time is only around 5 minutes and they are always offering sympathy in certain situations.

Alternatives Considered

Bananatag

Bananatag is a free-standing application that plugs into your email service provider. As such, you do not need to be logged into another application to see the results or the real-time tracking of emails like you would with other email trackers. The free application is great if you just need to track a few outbound emails, but the paid plans offer a much more robust tracking service that would allow you to get any and all information you could desire from an email being tracked

Mixmax

I love Acuity & Mixmax for different purposes. Acuity is great for running something like a coaching business - or a calendar that gets lots of calls booked every day or every week. Mixmax is great for 10 or fewer calls per week, and for interacting with clients who aren't so tech savvy.

Return on Investment

Bananatag

  • It has sped up communication with the client because you have insight into how they are receiving and looking at material you have sent them.
  • It has not had any negative impact on the business or our operations.

Mixmax

  • Positive impact - Very cheap "starter" plan for startups (only $9/month/user). Provides all the capability necessary to get all the marketing/sales that are necessary done.
  • Negative impact - Some email (though rarely) get sorted as spam possibly because of Mixmax tracking.
  • Positive impact - Easy integration with existing CRM options makes it easy to integrate email automation into a workflow.
