    It is a platform with all the requisite features to meet the needs of a complete digital marketing campaign: email marketing with countless automation rules, pop-ups that serve as simple sign-ups or even as cross-sell and up-sell tools, push notifications with ready-made templates for vital functions like browse and cart abandonment, the ability to create offsite landing pages, creation of Facebook ads, and much much more. I really can't think of one scenario in which ContactPigeon won't provide solid solutions.

    Makesbridge is great for email marketing and Salesforce integration. It is great for a startup or large company. Support is terrific. You can't go wrong with the service.

    Pros

    • Makesbridge had the highest reviews in customer service on the Salesforce app exchange. This was the major reason that I chose them. Some of the implementation was over my head, but this was not a problem since they were always available to help with any issues that came up.
    • The team has even taken suggestions and implemented them quickly when I voiced a need for a particular Salesforce integration. Makesbridge has been a fantastic addition to my company.

    Cons

    ContactPigeon

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

    Makesbridge

    • I would like for users to be able to see campaigns and templates created by other non-admin users. I'd like the option as the sysadmin to select which parts of the application should be open to all users, and which I'd like to gate. (Permissions, if you will).
    • Configuration of training materials. The content is great, I just have had difficulty locating the specific article that would be most relevant to the situation. I'd love step-by-step guides for campaign creation, etc.

    I am absolutely happy with their services. For any problem or idea that arises, the support team is there to provide solutions, advise, and even write code for the website.

    Great product, exceptional support. I'm going to be honest and say that I was apprehensive that the Makesbridge team was actually as wonderful as the app exchange reviews claim...How often does that actually happen?! But now, I can honestly say that the glowing reviews are spot-on, and my only concern is that they do not do justice in describing the product, support and service Makesbridge provides.

    I'm not an IT guru. The layout and workflows make sense, and I appreciate not having to involve a developer for every change I'd like to make.

    While their phone/chat support is outstanding, I wish there was more documentation and how-to information available online. There are many features that I have not used because I don't understand how to use them as well as I should

    Makesbridge was easier to use and has a much better help desk. We were originally impressed with sales and then the technical side. At one point we handled e-mails with an internal program, what a headache, especially the list management.

    • Good customer service and allows us to use our leads without much restriction.
    • Price still considered quite high for a very small business like us.
