Gammadyne Mailer is Windows software for automating a business's email marketing. Email services are prohibitively expensive for a large mailing list. With Gammadyne Mailer, users can install it and send as many emails as desired. There is only a recurring fee if a user wishes to track opens and clicks. But the vendor states even that is inexpensive, and that users are not required to track the entire mailing list. By utilizing a website's mail server, or renting a cheap server, they state…

Our email campaigns are simple (we don't require automation) and we don't have a big box CRM. For us, Gammadyne works perfectly. It's simple and cost-effective.

To fully utilize Salesforce Marketing Cloud, you need a full team of IT engineers, SQL writers, email designers that know HTML, and customer experience strategists. A small team may be able to use it for the basics and do it well; but anything complicated requires a lot of technical knowledge. I do appreciate the Salesforce Trailhead that makes learning how to use the tool fun and interactive - so learning how to use it feels more approachable. Salesforce Marketing Cloud is best used when you already are invested in Salesforce products - CRM and CDP. IF you want a basic email sending tool, this is not for you. If you have many complex use cases, Salesforce Marketing Cloud is what you need!

Cons

  • It would help if the tracking reports didn't expire.
  • I would like to see customizing options in the tracking reports.

  • Automation studio is very hard to use. We need to create a Data extension with all required fields before we can run SQL. So it takes a lot of time.
  • Query Studio is much easier to use but it often gives an error while running the same SQL in Automation Studio works fine.
  • We were not able to set up SMS messages as SFMC is not supporting MMS which is a big problem.

As of right now we have not seen any other program that integrates as seamlessly into our Salesforce platform. We have barely scratched the surface of all the features and use cases. It would be irresponsible to make a move to another platform in the near future. We have not come up against any limitations that would prompt a need to switch

Should be better for UI/UX of the software but Gammadyne work always as expected (That's the most important thing for us)

You won't find another solution that has as many features as Salesforce Marketing Cloud Interaction Studio. We all know Salesforce, we all know how big they are and it's not for nothing... Their tools do most of the things you want, need and even imagine. Using it is complicated, but the usability is infinite.

Upgrades and timing of the upgrades were communicated well and planned during off hours for our work. If we did have a campaign scheduled during that time, it would kick-off after the system was back active. There were a few unplanned system down times, but it was a rare occurrence and those times were also short in duration.

Though the make up of MA apps is not built this way today, it would be nice to see them become more real-time. The integration between Salesforce and Pardot is not a true real-time integration. If I modify something in Salesforce, those changes are not automatically reflected in Pardot immediately. There is a delay of about 15 minutes before the systems sync. This delay, although not long, is less than ideal We would love the systems to be integrated real time such that changes are propagated from one system to the other immediately.

They're fast and knowledgeable. You will always know what's the status of your request and they usually follow up with phone calls to ask you questions or provide updates. Sometimes it takes them a couple of days to investigate, especially if you have custom "situations" like my company usually does but at least they are very good at managing time expectations.

The trainers at the Pardot user conference (Elevate and Connections) were very knowledgeable and presented the material well. Again, the content was targeted to more of a new user audience, and was not really relevant for folks who had been using the product for 2+ years.

Pardot's online training touches on all topics briefly and vaguely without much indepth exploration into how a final outcome could look, such as Nurturing Campaigns, Email templates, landing page templates, etc... The only true way to uncover Pardot's full capabilities is to have Front End design and coding experience. Without this key skill set, I would not recommend Pardot to another business.

From an IT perspective, once you set up the Javascript beacon and start collecting data there is a waiting game. During this time you can start labeling your site actions which can be labor intensive for a single person, but you don't really have the final end-users on the platform yet. We did a lot of training so users were experienced, but it wasn't until they had their first tasks to accomplish that they started using the system and had questions. I'd recommend setting up some immediate goals for an end-user to start segmenting for the purpose of displaying message campaigns so you can jump start end-user action.

I give it an eight because Salesforce Marketing Cloud does many of the things we need for our clients. It fulfills our client's needs for a reliable system that integrates well with the rest of the Salesforce software package. The software is really useful for companies with many stakeholders, and the intuitive interface makes it easy to implement for all who need it. Something I like especially is their lead-scoring options. This is the first time I have experienced demography, and actions are scored separately. I like that because it really focuses on the right fit and the right actions.
