ContactPigeon

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

Vero

Vero tends to play nice with companies that have their websites as the primary source of truth. This allows them to send as many events as they need and develop more complex workflows that introduce conditionality into Vero emails. However, for those that rely more on Salesforce, it might have more limited applications. The product is fairly easy to use, so it's easy for multiple people on the team to pick it up and do what they need for their respective groups. On the other hand, creating email templates will require some knowledge of HTML/CSS, unless those are copied from another source. That would require another product of course that provides more robust layout editing features and templates.

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.

Vero

Vero's price tag is far more attractive but for what you will find to be clear and obvious reasons. Vero has no CRM unlike HubSpot and Infusionsoft. Vero also has limited tracking unlike the seemingly endless possibilities offered from HubSpot which as we all know comes with at a significant cost, often not feasible by a small startup company.

Return on Investment

ContactPigeon

  • 25% growth in Email orders (YoY).
  • Higher open rates up to +46%.

Vero

  • The overall costs of using Vero have been much lower than using two comparable products that handle transactional emails and newsletters, respectively. MailChimp has relatively recently integrated their Mandrill product for transactional emails, so that's worth looking at as well.
  • Using a single product for many things lowers the learning curve, as team members only have to learn one product well, rather than several.
  • While infrequent, Vero's outages have impacted our operations at times. If absolute reliability is crucial to your business, then you may have to find a larger provider with a more robust infrastructure. As mentioned, though, it hasn't been a big problem for us.
