Chose Constant Contact
Mailchimp kept flagging our account because of our bounce rate, yes we should go in and clean up email addresses but when you have 30,000 contacts over 10 years it can be a daunting slow moving process, Constant Contact was much more understanding of that and willing to help us …
monday.com
Chose monday.com
Monday.com does not stack up against HubSpot. HubSpot is a CRM whereas monday.com is a database or project manager. If you want to actually do something with the contacts then you need a different tool. It's good for sales teams to keep track and use throughout the pipeline, …

Constant Contact
Constant Contact is the best tool for communicating information in an attractive way to multiple people with customizable pictures, content, and links. It is also the best option for tracking information regarding what constituents received the email, clicked through, unsubscribed, etc. This platform makes keeping track of data for multiple levels of constituents manageable.

If you are looking to bring order to deliverables across your organisation, then monday.com is a good starting point. But the billing framework at the small business end is a detractor - monday.com only makes best money sense when you start using it with 20 seats on an enterprise licence so you have to have very good reasons to use it if you have no need for 20 seats

Pros
Constant Contact
  • Market segmentation is great: my main segmentation is by region because that's how our sales team is divided.
  • Lists: making customized email lists is easy and intuitive; the custom fields allow some flexibility in case our fields don't exactly line up with Constant Contact's.
  • Campaigns: creating campaigns is quick and simple. I especially appreciate the 'resend to non-openers' option. I am constantly using this feature.
  • Subject line generator: I like using the recommended subject lines. I'm able to plug in their recommended ideas, or sometimes, this feature helps me generate my own ideas.

  • I love that I can color-code sections/folders (I love color-coding!)
  • I love that I can automate the majority of things on Monday
  • I love the support I'm able to get when I don't know how to do something specific, I set up a call and get tips/tricks on how to accomplish what I'm wanting

Cons
Constant Contact
  • Drag and drop interface can be buggy. For example, when you drag in a component, sometimes the email template keeps scrolling, so you're not able to actually drop in the component.
  • Reporting is a bit confusing. There are 2 different ways to access reporting and I believe only one of them allowed you to view click rates for embedded links.
  • Limitations on the drag and drop interface. For example, you're not able to create a sidebar that spans the entire length of the email, which was a request from a client.

  • I'd like to see yet more configuration options for the dashboard
  • Add a risk matrix template
  • Add "knowledge packs' - things such as go to market strategy, pricing strategy. change management, BPO, etc. to give users a fully immersive "one-stop shop"

Likelihood to Renew
Constant Contact
There is no doubt that we are going to renew Constant Contact. We have not just invested a lot of time in learning and creating a great looking product but we have developed a strong database of information that allows us to track how we are doing for each newsletter. This supports our goals of creating products that residents desire and are excited to receive.

Usability
Constant Contact
There is always room for improvement. I don't know how they test their systems, but they should invite not-so computer savvy people to test it. If I, as an expert have problems, they need to think like the technophobe. Since I've used Constant Contact in the past as part of my former employment, I have not viewed any of the tutorials and just jumped in to work on my client's newsletter. With that said, I found some areas easy and some a bit cumbersome

monday.com enables quick creation of a basic project plan. In our office, we don't need a big, expensive Project Management System. We need a simpler, human-usable Work Management System. Most recently, monday.com added the four Predecessor Types to their Dependency feature. FS, SF, SS, FF are now part of monday.com's Dependency offering. This was my most-needed update, and monday.com provided it! I appreciate monday.com's rich library of Templates. However, my preference is to duplicate a useful project/board, then update it for my next project.

Performance

The system seemed quite slow sometimes. Specifically, there was sometimes a delay in sends if it was during a high traffic period. There were time-outs when uploading new code for an email, and a lag in reporting analytics which was sometimes as long as 72 hours

Everything performs fairly well. Every now and then there are user errors where an employee will not click "ok" on a note they've created and simply exit out (I do wish that something was in place to prevent this, such as a pop "are you finished?")

Support Rating
Constant Contact
I think the overall support for Constant Contact has always been incredible; I have nothing negative to say. Our customer support representative was attentive, easy to understand, and very knowledgeable. I never felt like I wasn't a priority of his and my issues, while very small, were fixed in a very short time frame.

Our CSM, Jonathan is AMAZING! He was only introduced to us a few months ago, and we've has fairly limited interactions so far, but he's an absolute legend! He seeks to understand our problems, workflows, etc. and carefully considers a positive outcome for us within the system's capabilities. He's a wealth of knowledge and we're really lucky to have him

To have someone walk you thru the features and capabilities of Monday.com is priceless. Someone also coming along later in the contract to see if you are maximizing the program to suit your company needs is beyond helpful. The staff that have provided this training are fun, creative and very patient.

Implementation Rating
Constant Contact
Implementation is very easy for someone who wants to send out the “batch and blast” type newsletters. If you want to use their templates with no customizations, the product works fine. However, the more customizations you get into involving link color, etc, that’s where things can get tricky for someone who may not be familiar with coding

We signed up for the accounts. Created the accounts. Ran the trial version and tested it live while we were running multiple projects and found that it was fitting our needs perfectly. When the trial ended and we were asked to purchase the full version, we did. We have found other ways to use it and it's a breeze.

Alternatives Considered
Constant Contact
We tried Mailchimp. We could send messages to larger groups for free with Constant Contact. And we simply found more people read the emails and responded more frequently when we used Constant Contact. I think it's because it didn't feel as much like a marketing tool as when we contacted them with Mailchimp.

We used an excel spreadsheet to track our month end close process previously which created a lot of issues around only one person being able to be in the checklist at any given time. Additionally, we were unable to have excel notify us when a task we need to have completed was done, but Monday.com has completely changed that for us!

For it to work across multiple departments and sites, I would like to see improvements made with integrations and automation. For this question, I am acknowledging not only the addition of internal triggers/automation, but also an expansion on external ones.

Return on Investment
Constant Contact
  • Good email marketing option that we need to expand on
  • We have not had a strong determinable ROI, but we do not always know if a donation resulted from an email
  • Very affordable and we plan in keeping it as a resource

  • Streamlined workflows and clear task assignments improve efficiency, saving time and boosting overall productivity.
  • Real-time updates and centralized communication facilitate collaboration, reducing misunderstandings and fostering teamwork.
  • Complex features may require time for employees to fully grasp, potentially causing a temporary dip in productivity during the learning phase.
