Customer.io

If you have a very small database of people, then probably the whole integration isn't justified. If you have a small business and don't plan to scale much, don't do it. It will be expensive for what you can get elsewhere (Mailchimp).If you want a scalable and powerful platform, that will take some time to pay off, and you can wait, then do it. Once you get integrated and start sending events and attributes, the things you can do are almost limitless.

Leanplum

I think Leanplum is great for any company that needs to use push notification to drive revenue or KPI growth. I often find that it can be very costly to integrate analytics solutions & also build good reporting from the data. Leanplum provides a lot of great analytics & reporting right out of the box, especially around push events. This makes it much easier for the managing marketing user to optimize campaigns and increase their team & company's KPIs.

Pros

Customer.io

  • Workflow building and management.
  • Extremely flexible and integrates easily with other services.
  • Solid email builder.
  • Webhook makes it easy to send and receive data in event-driven contexts.
  • Support for liquid makes highly detailed personalization possible in every message.

Leanplum

  • Viewing the history of a campaign. Leanplum shows exactly what a customer has been sent on which dates/times and due to which actions.
  • AB Testing - allows us to see which messages are appreciated/opened more by which customers
  • Team collaboration - we can see easily how recently a campaign or message was updated

Cons

Customer.io

  • I may be missing it in the UI, but a place to see the list of emails who qualify for a certain email.
  • One easy to view chart of all our automated/lifecycle emails to see what a given user would see over their customer journey. (This is really just a feature request/idea - the product itself is really awesome.)
Ted Bennett | TrustRadius Reviewer

Leanplum

  • Ability to create User Stories with a predefined funnel of actions that will chain themselves
  • Ability to tag users once they enter or leave specific segments
  • Should show in a simple page the main KPIS that matter for all our games at once
  • More granularity in granting access to subsets (not sharing everything per account)

Alternatives Considered

Customer.io

Customer.io was really the first pure, full-featured drip email program on the market and as far as I know, it's still the simplest and best overall for that specific function. SendGrid has also added drip campaign features, but I would seriously evaluate Customer.io against any other drip email provider because they really have all the key elements you need to make it work.

Leanplum

I was not a part of making the decision to use Leanplum over its competitors.

Return on Investment

Customer.io

  • Fast testing for new products to specific groups. It saves a lot of time and money.
  • Removed workload from marketing = more time to make it better.
  • Better contact with specific groups, seeing a increase in sales because of this.
Mike Koolwijk | TrustRadius Reviewer

Leanplum

  • Leanplum has helped a client improve their visibility & ROI on push campaigns.
  • It had a lot of built in reports out of the box, so the client had to spend very little on building out additional reporting or using a reporting tool to understand the data.
  • When we switched vendors, Leanplum offered a similar pricing contract as the previous vendor with many more features. After using it for over a year, I feel that Leanplum was a much better value than the previous vendor's contract.
