    Constant Contact is great when trying to target specific market segments. We typically like to segment our master list by region, but also have product segments, as well. They do provide pre-made segments to start you off too.We don't usually use their email builder, we find others to be more flexible, intuitive, and have more variety. We do prefer emailing from Constant Contact, however.

    Zoho CRM

    Zoho CRM is geared to small businesses with limited usage. However, through additional programming, our enterprise company was able to leverage the core apps into a well-honed customized CRM and end-to-end ecosystem that meets our needs. Zoho CRM has been responsive to this process and provided the support we need. With Zoho CRM, we can customize it any way we want allowing us to track all aspects of client requests and tax or service categories and then follow up with email campaigns based on specific criteria with ease.

    Pros

    Constant Contact

    • You can accomplish quite a bit using the drag and drop interface, so there is less custom HTML required.
    • Easy to use for folks who are not tech savvy.
    • Very quick upload speed for contact lists when compared with other email marketing vendors.
    • Easy to customize contact lists.
    • Displays much more consistently across different email clients when compared with other email marketing vendors.
    Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Zoho CRM

    • It is pretty easy to use. We don't need to set up formal training sessions for our users which lets us get new users up and running much quicker.
    • Great reporting section, you can extract some really detailed reports of your leads and their status.
    • User access control and 2-factor authentication are really easy to define and set up.
    • Some really great integrations with Zoho products and Gsuite.

    Cons

    Constant Contact

    • The interface is definitely a bit difficult to use and it takes some getting used to.
    • More customization and exporting of html would be awesome.
    • They could expand on features that other email marketing software has such as tying in with social media, more flows, etc.
    Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Zoho CRM

    • You can only have one email attached to a form. This means that I have to go elsewhere to create a full drip campaign.
    • Reporting leaves a lot to be desired. It is difficult to set up reports exactly how we want them.
    • There are some things that aren't allowed to be customized that definitely should be
    • Support means well, but they rarely can help

    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.

    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

    In my overall experience, I would highly recommend Zoho CRM, though it lacks the feature of partial entries, still we used that for our non-profit organization. They have offered us a non-profit discount as well. Moreover, their support is good, and has dedicated employees to help the clients. From my experience, sometimes, we got the idiots, but overall the support is good. They have helped us in doing custom functionalities that other CRM providers don't do for free.

    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.

    We did the training and that was a huge waste of money. The information provided was basic and the instructor was sloppy (he even forgot to turn off his mic when he used the restroom - no one should ever hear what we heard). I offered up a 9 because we were able to find what we needed on your website.

    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

    Take it slowly and meet often with your team to solicit their feedback. Listen to what they are saying so that if something is not clear, you can address it before they turn on the CRM. Also, whatever system you were one previously will not match Zoho CRM which is both good and bad. It's good as I know Zoho CRM will be better than whatever you're been using. Bad because it will require change and how you did things in your old CRM may need to be modified a little when using Zoho CRM.

    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.

    Zoho CRM

    Back when we switched, Zoho CRM was nowhere near Salesforce. We were able to at least merge some of our documents through a bridge called Conga. We still can't do that within Zoho CRM, but again, Zoho CRM updates all the time so I'm probably not aware of the easiest most efficient way it can do it.

    I think Zoho CRM is priced at a reasonable amount. Simply put, you get what you pay for and Zoho does not disappoint. My organization is comfortable with what we pay and pleased with continually renewing the software. The billing frequency is just right. There are no complaints on our end

    In addition to being a user of Zoho CRM, we are a reseller as well. Often, at times our Partners request for on-boarding the platform configuration for them. During such requirements, we have utilized the Professional services team directly from the Zoho CRM team. Our partner feedback was quite positive, throughout.

    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
