Ideal for eCommerce. It is not the cheapest for a startup but one of the best for a scaling business.

emfluence Marketing Platform

emfluence is good to use as a basic email marketing platform. I would advise that if someone would want very specific data from their email deployments, to look elsewhere.

Pros

ContactPigeon

  • Really powerful custom automation
  • Omnichannel marketing automation (Email+Push Notifications+SMS)
  • Great support

emfluence Marketing Platform

  • The social media scheduling is a great way to schedule posts ahead of time, even months in advance.
  • Our email templates were created to match our website and we have access to edit them to customize even further.
  • The new drag and drop is a lot easier to move blocks of text around within the email template.
  • We change out the website popup frequently on our website and it is easy to change with the emfluence platform's pages/modules tool.
  • The survey tool on the emfluence platform are easy to use and easy to use and easy to pull the results.

Cons

ContactPigeon

  • The UI is too complex sometimes (hopefully their support is always there for us!)
Apostolis Lianos | TrustRadius Reviewer

emfluence Marketing Platform

  • One thing that we struggle with is the fact that the platform indexes on email address. When we are dealing with both professional and personal email messages - it makes it difficult to add a reporting element/opt out etc

Alternatives Considered

ContactPigeon

ContactPigeon is built for eCommerce, while Mailchimp is super easy and a good fit for a smaller company. That's why we switched since we needed a more complete, all-in-one marketing automation solution to scale our online business.

emfluence Marketing Platform

They were the only company that could solve our specific problems. When we looked at larger companies like Constant Contact, they weren't as capable at handling our specific needs for a reasonable price. Some companies need to charge us programming hours. Bigger companies couldn't help our issue. emfluence is more flexible.

Return on Investment

  • 25% growth in Email orders (YoY).
  • Higher open rates up to +46%.
Apostolis Lianos | TrustRadius Reviewer

emfluence Marketing Platform
