The reporting feature is not as detailed as we require for our documentation, so we have to organize the results into charts and graphs. For every other component of our social media and digital marketing, emfluence checks all of the boxes.

Maropost
Maropost is a little more expensive than its competitors. I'd say Maropost is well suited for medium and larger businesses, not small businesses unless they're really good at utilizing e-mail and monetizing it.

  • Maropost is particularly strong in the customization aspect. As a sales person, I love using MSC because I can customize everything from A-Z.
  • The features are endless, a personal fav is the Journey's feature with Marketing Cloud.
  • Client support is quick to respond.

Cons
emfluence Digital Marketing
  • I do have issues sometimes when making a website popup. I specify certain measurements of my popup yet when it shows up on my website, the graphic doesn't adjust and I have a bunch of white space. But that could also be my website.
  • When adding a new contact into the contact section, once you hit save, the contact information stays on the screen instead of an empty contact profile so you can immediately add the next person.
  • Sometimes when I update a template, The unsubscribe link will link to my email address instead of the person the email is being sent to.

  • The Sales Department shouldn't promise the customer what support can't deliver on.
  • They should also brush up on some ethics courses. It's appalling to me how they conduct business. Buyer beware.

Though relatively responsive, the responses were always utterly unhelpful and sometime not even relevant to the questions we asked. It quickly became apparent that it was outsourced copy/paste support.

Alternatives Considered
emfluence Digital Marketing
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.

Maropost had everything we needed and more. We loved that fact that one price covered everything. As we move forward we don't have to go back and purchase modules that we are now ready for. No one wants to go back to management and ask for more money

Return on Investment
emfluence Digital Marketing
  • 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.

Maropost
  • Lack of data and information about our users that we can use to get smarter in our segmentation hurts us in that we lose branded deals or partnerships.
  • Takes too much time to export reports and gain attrition reporting information, manually preparing reports is not a good use of time for anyone on our team.
