Workflow feature makes this best suited for those who want to send a series of emails over time based on contact attributes and behavior. Ability to add custom fields and define segments makes this tool valuable for very targeted email campaigns. Lack of communication about releases and poor technical support means your users will need to be fairly skilled in critical thinking and more technical than average. Our knowledge of system came from lots of trial and error.
Read full review Well Suited For: Small businesses with small marketing teams. Shopify Customers. Small businesses that want more reporting/segmented lists. Businesses that are upgrading from a service like Constant Contact or Mailchimp. Less appropriate Customer who are currently using Klaviyo. Business who do not have a Shopify website. Read full review Pros Number 1, is it's ease of use. We have not run into any problems where someone finds Campaigner difficult to use and this comes in handy every day. The more people that know how to use it the better because it reduces stress/buildup on others. We love the reporting system here. We use the clicks and opens to follow up with people all the time so to have all that detailed information is very beneficial. Customization is great. You can really make all your emails look exactly like they're pictured in your head. Read full review The demographic data was great. I could see how many males vs. females, ages, income, married, with or without children. It gave me a good idea of who my customers were. Using their tracking URLs in all of our campaigns allowed us to get a better idea of what exactly was driving revenue. Not only could I see top performing products, which I can do within Magento, I could also see top selling categories and colors. I can pull a Coupon Usage report our of Magento, but Springbot gave me additional info like AOV and ROI on those codes. Springbot also gave me a lot of info about our abandoned carts. It shows us which products are most abandoned along with views, conversion rates, etc. Springbot gave us an Instagram Shop page that allowed us to curate social shares and then tie them to products on our site. Read full review Cons Campaigner is just too bare-bones. When we first started using Campaigner close to a decade ago it was perfect for what it was. But nowadays Campaigner is missing several features that their competitors offer like exit intent and cart abandonment emails. Campaigner has an astonishingly bad unsubscribe option. We have had many customers complain to us over the years that when they try to unsubscribe through the emails Campaigner sends, their unsubscribe does not go through. Hard to change account settings such as changing our subscription plan. We had to call and were told to wait 24 hours just to make a small change to our account. Read full review After our purchase, I let spring or know that I was currently too busy to implement the system and to put things on hold. They ignored this request and kept charging us a monthly fee without using any of their systems. I have only logged in once. Nothing has been set up. They can see that from their side. After multiple emails back and forth their out was in the user agreement. I never asked for my money back only credit so I can regroup and when I have time get on to implant the systems. They tell me they don't do that. They don't care about any of the customer's needs. They only care about charging you that monthly fee. Terrible bus plan. With enough bad feedback, they will suffer from such a narrow plan. I wish we had actual information about the cons using the system. Unfortunately I was not given the opportunity to do unless I wanted to keep paying while not using the system. Read full review Likelihood to Renew
I can't see us not renewing unless we find something better. This is highly unlikely because there was a thorough research done for use to chose the best marketing client and it always came back to campaigner.
Read full review Usability
Great features but awful tech support experiences over five years of use. Some releases broke our workflows and Campaigner could never explain why. Our initial plan provided a designed client support contact. This individual changed frequently without notice and at one point they decided our plan no longer included a designated contact. Of course this was never communicated to us until we tried to reach out to the person. If you are tech savy this system might be for you but you'll be on your own.

Springbot has top navigation that helps me quickly jump from emails to social, and reporting very easily.

Everything takes a minimum of 24 hours to solve and after being with campaigner for several years we were just told for the first time we have an account rep which we never even spoke to.

We have raved about Springbot's support because they always get back with us so quickly. Our rep, Jared has been phenomenal in helping us, always being available to chat with us and explaining some of the metrics with us so we can better understand. He completely handles our ads, checks on them, and lets us know when to update and why.

is far more customizable and User-Friendly, although Campaigner gets the job done. Campaigner could benefit from a design upgrade to bring their look into the modern realm. The drag and drop features and email customization of

is pricier. So you are definitely getting what you pay for.

Springbit is more expensive, more complicated and delivered less.
Read full review Return on Investment We are able to sell Campaigner as a premium feature The plans can be a bit pricey We do cover cost by using their flexible "bucket" model. Read full review Springbot gave us a better idea of who our customer was. We just launched in January 2015 having been B2B previously. So we weren't really sure who we were marketing to. I only paid $200/month for the service so I didn't waste a ton of money trying it out. They have a 30 day cancellation policy so I wasn't stuck in a year long contract. It was a let down because I had such high hopes of everything it would allow me to do and see with one platform. Give them a couple more years and I think they will work out the kinks.
