Drip Ecommerce CRM

If you're looking to take your email program to the next level with automation, you definitely need to consider Drip. Their support team is always timely and helpful whenever we've needed guidance on the platform or using the API.They are constantly improving their tools. It never feels stagnant or lacking in critical features. Their prebuilt workflows make getting started very easy and you can start driving more revenue almost immediately.

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

Drip Ecommerce CRM

  • Simplicity + power. Drip is one of the quickest platforms to use in terms of setting up simple drip email sequences. Yet it also packs enormous power if you need to do complex automation.
  • Drip's direct integrations with other systems mean you can easily create hyper-personalized communications and anybody can set this up.
  • Drip's Javascript embed is easy to setup and great for helping to build deeper insights into customer behavior as well as triggering automation.
Steve Palfreyman | TrustRadius Reviewer

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

Drip Ecommerce CRM

  • Possibly more email design templates for "new" users to automation, HTML coding, integrations, webhooks, etc.
  • Any supported integration partners are always good to see. They have expanded in this area, recently.
  • Some sort of WYSIWYG, drag-and-drop email editor, wouldn't hurt.
  • Sometimes, when trying to implement advanced HTML coding to an email template, the code doesn't stick, save or format as "native HTML."
Conrad Magalis | 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

Drip Ecommerce CRM

Again, this is dependent on the use case. If you are a small- to medium-sized business that doesn't have a sales team, this is likely a great product for you. It is also a good price compared to larger enterprise software. Other software I have used worked better for other companies I worked for, but Drip fits best for my current company.

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

Drip Ecommerce CRM

  • Saves hours of typing redundant emails
  • Helps with our retention based on the constant contact with our current clients
  • Keeps our prospects up to date as we move through the stages of the sales cycle which also increases our capacity to handle more volume.
Matthew Gehrman | TrustRadius Reviewer

emfluence Marketing Platform

  • It's allowed for us to generate more traffic to our client's websites.
  • It's allowed for us to generate more leads from email marketing through emfluence.
  • Visual click maps, more customized dashboard and email templates, and a deeper dive in data would help further business objectives.
