Countly

Countly is wonderful. It mhas affordable options for startups that are experimenting with event and market-tracking services that can't afford more expensive services but do have the cloud credits to operate Countly. For later-stage companies that have the money, but not the time to set up a service like this, a service like Amplitude, Segment, or Mixpanel may be a better alternative.

It's kind of an automation workflow, but for example you can set up a popup to appear at a specific time on a specific product page and offer the visitor something. The visitor then signs up and then (after you've set up your automation sequence) that visitor gets a specific welcome page based on the popup they signed up through, and then a specific order confirmation email and everything else flows from that specific popup. That's great because it's allowed us to sort of fine-tune our offerings to get our visitors' emails in the first place and offer, for example, someone browsing a product page for 3 minutes something different than someone staying 20 seconds on the homepage and then leaving.

Cons

Countly

  • Bad UI - The UI is quite outdated and poorly designed, which was one of the principal reasons for us moving away from Countly.
  • Some poor documentation - 3rd-party documentation and tutorials for some of their mobile SDKs are better than Countly's own documentation.
  • Server requirements can be a bit high - For startups with trial credits on cloud computing services, this may not be a problem. Otherwise, Countly can get as expensive as hosted services like Segment and Mixpanel.

  • Initial setup wasn't firing right, support issue was handled pretty quickly and easily.
  • It does not go back and put previous orders/customers into the automation. It will only work with go-forward customers from the time you install the product. (At least that's what the outcome of our support inquiry told us...).
  • Would like to see more sample templates and campaigns.

Countly practically does everything you need it to do. However, it can have challenges of its own sometimes.

Alternatives Considered

Countly

Matomo has poor integrations and SDK support compared to Countly. It is also significantly harder to set up compared to Countly. There have also been complaints about Matomo having security flaws. Additionally, Matomo seemed to lack common analytics platform features, like segmentation, and tracking/downloading raw data. These features are very easy to use in Countly and are usually a necessity for most companies.

At first I went through the standard choice, which is MailChimp. It's a nice-looking program and everything, but I wouldn't say they're user-friendly. It's quite techy and when you have an ecommerce store you really just want to get the results. It's a lot of work to create one simple newsletter and their customer support is pretty much non-existent. As for Klaviyo, they're pretty expensive. We just couldn't justify paying that much for results that were pretty much similar to MailChimp--in that it wasn't really impressive. Omnisend really was a breath of fresh air and their support must not sleep at all cause they answer all my smart and stupid questions within like 15 minutes. Every single time
