INBOX25
I think Inbox25 is a great fit for companies outgrowing lower-end, disconnected email marketing applications. Companies with a more formalized marketing organization that send a lot of emails (tens of thousands monthly or more) will be better served with a product like Inbox25 that is less complex, easier to use, and much more affordable (30% lower by our experience) from the larger marketing automation products on the market. Our company has 3 full-time marketing staff with over 100,000 contacts (with valid emails) that we target in various direct and drip email campaigns and Inbox25 fits our needs just fine. I suspect that we may outgrow the product eventually but I think it'll meet our needs just fine for many years to come.

Cons
INBOX25
  • Inbox25 is in a growth phase and has transformed their product pretty fast. With that comes an increased need to continually learn how to leverage new features.
  • Tutorials and product documentation exist but it is relatively minimal. They overcome this with personalized, one-on-one training that is recorded for future review using a project management platform.
  • Inbox25 has expanded beyond Sugar CRM to include Salesforce.com integration. I'm not sure if they plan to add integrations to other applications but they are positioned well for growth.

It's VERY easy to use - drag & drop interface, not bulky. Excellent live chat & a phone customer support! Much cheaper than its competitors. Multifunctional (and has more functions and applications within than Marketo) Lots of templates ready to use. Very straightforward with tips popping up when needed. Creating drip campaigns has never been easier. Social media bulk upload (very useful!)

Return on Investment
INBOX25
  • We have successfully moved cold suspects to leads and leads to opportunities, and opportunities to customers with Inbox25. We are just now starting to realize more value given that we've only recently started using the more advanced drip marketing and lead scoring features.
  • When we used the pay-as-you-go version we were paying just pennies per email and remained CAN-Spam Act compliant. It was harder to quantify the ROI then but it was apparent that email marketing was working and moving prospects from one sales stage to another. It was also very useful for re-engaging prospects and promoting products and services to customers.
  • Our total investment in the advanced edition is less $30,000 annually and we expect the ROI to be less than one year. It could have been sooner if we'd have been more thoughtful in our initial implementation.

  • Great effort to design first journeys. Later knowledge increases and you can make a lot of tests and changes in your process very quickly
  • Very efficient, dynamic CTAs helping us to generate messages based on customer interest
  • Some concepts of filtering are difficult to understand on Vbout's Journey bulider, so we had to make a lot effort to get our conditions on Journey's processes
