Litmus

After using some other email testing services, I've found Litmus to be the most robust tool with the most features. Beyond providing a good product, they provide excellent support, maintain an involved community of email marketing professionals, and provide industry-leading information in their blog and free webinars. Litmus is best suited for organizations needing to efficiently turn custom coded email campaigns or companies that have many different email templates. If your organization is only sending a monthly newsletter and your template is well tested, Litmus may be overkill for your needs.

They are very strong in Europe and if you are an Eastern European entrepreneur on the US East Coast, they might be a better fit than HubSpot or Marketo. But if you are new to marketing automation, it could be a difficult learning curve. And at present (Feb 2017) the European exchange rates make it an unattractive. There are also some issues with price transparency. Add-on fees can mount up.

Pros

Litmus

  • Inbox renders are the prime reason I use Litmus, I am confident they represent reality.
  • Litmus helps legitimize the struggles of every email developer.
  • Litmus makes it very easy to share results, whether they are inbox renders or email analytics, with my entire team.

  • The solution is easy to use, once you learn it. Given that the marketing automation software is very complex, they managed to create a user-friendly interface, easy to use even without programming knowledge.
  • Educates users and customers - It is impressive how many resources SALESmanago invested in educating customers. We are talking about video tutorials, webinars every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, blog articles, infographics, free eBooks, Marketing Automation Day, events etc.
  • Multiple tools integrated into one - it's a habit that you find all the information and tools you need in one place. There are other solutions on the market, but SALESmanago is among the only ones that provides an overview
  • 30 day free trial - the advantage is that you do not have to pay first to use the solution. In the 30 day trial you have the opportunity to discover all the secrets of this tool and see if it fits to your business.

Cons

Litmus

  • I very much like using Litmus Builder, however, I have recently had issues with it taking a very long time to load from Checklist to Builder, and also very long wait times for giving links to share with other developers.
  • I'd like to see more up-to-date devices offered for Android and Gmail for Android - such as the more recent Galaxy versions offered by Samsung.
  • It would be great to see an actual support ticket when submitting to litmus in order to more easily communicate any issues that may have developed since submitting that ticket.

SALESmanago

  • Using all possible features is hard. There is a need for individual strategy, but that is done well by their partners.
  • Timing and cooldowns could be done better.
  • Drag and drop creators are not top notch in market at the moment.

Litmus has integrations that make the software an integrated part of my work every day. Being able to test right within my email builder is just brilliant. Daily I also use the web interface to review analytics and spam testing. Overall it is one of the pieces of software I use daily without any complaints or issues.

Alternatives Considered

Litmus

The only other email rendering services I have tried is the Email on Acid integration built into Sailthru. It was a stripped-down version of the EoA platform and was difficult to navigate. At that point, I had used Litmus for nearly three years and did not have much trust in the EoA integration when I saw some rendering disparities.

Salesmanago is more affordable and has better behavior analytics when compared with others.

Return on Investment

Litmus

  • The price is absolutely worth the investment. We have seen increased engagement with emails (e.g., the heat map 'lights up' in more areas, a lower unsubscribe rate, and users scrolling further down the email) and the back-and-forth between me (the creator), and my testing team has been minimized because I can catch issues before sending out the email to be tested. It significantly reduces the time it takes to create, test, and schedule an email.
  • While the webinars are free, they cost time. And they're almost always worth it, even if they're just on in the background. The State of Email content they generate - and offer FOR FREE (it's a LOT of data they're giving you for free) - is an amazing side bonus. They offer a ton of email productivity tips and really helpful content. And again, for free!
  • Although I haven't really mentioned this in previous sections, the Builder tool is sometimes really useful to code in also. I generally preferred Sublime Text , but lately I've been using the Builder tool instead, as it allows you to see your code changes in real time (vs loading up previews each time). Then you can save it and preview across all devices. It's a huge time saver in that sense as well.

  • The tool has been ROI neutral. It cost us nothing but made us nothing
  • Having experience in a little known marketing automation system has increased our credibility as a consulting service
