Movable Ink

I think Movable Ink is a great tool if a brand is very deal/promotion heavy and aims to differentiate itself from competitors. With the 3 brands I've worked with, this was very effective and also provided our creative team with extra tools to aid in differentiating campaigns.In addition with brands that have differentiated products/services by location - it is also very effective. With brands that have retail locations or different offers in different locales it is very helpful to differentiate content by location.

Persado

Persado is an excellent tool for a small marketing team seeking to "work smarter, not harder." The tool itself is simple to use and generates instant results, all while learning and reporting at a deeper level than a human on a marketing team could. We have been able to reach the right eyes within our audience at the right time, improving open rates and generating more revenue from our promotional emails.

Pros

Movable Ink

  • Clean and easy to use, user interface and short ramp up time required to implement within email service providers
  • Email use cases are helpful to take personalization in email to the next level, they can help a brands emails stand out vs. competitors in some scenarios.
  • The platform is flexible to work with various ESPs; I've personally used Movable Ink with 3 platforms and have seen no issues.

Persado

  • They know way more than me on how to create effective subject lines that actually get people to open. We have solid creative and cool emails, but without the hook, it means nothing. Persado is that hook. (Side note, they are also customizable so if your company has specific guidelines/tone, you can set those parameters.)
  • The analytics are amazing! It's so cool to see the responses to various emotions ebb and flow over time. We have a few that consistently perform well (and some that consistently underperform, which makes sense for them to), and a few others that seem to react to the season somehow. How would I know this on my own? (That's right, I wouldn't.)
  • Creating these subject lines and exporting them to Listrak (our ESP) is insanely quick and easy. It takes more time for me to set up the split test in our ESP than it does to set up the subject lines in Persado.

Cons

Movable Ink

  • I think they could improve with how to provide strategic guidance to customers on applications and use cases. A lot of recommendations aren't applicable to new business models/scenarios
  • Their transition to onsite/landing page use cases was somewhat effective but we ran into some hiccups with applying the technology onsite

Persado

  • Not so much a con, but area for improvement: an option to have reports generated automatically and sent to me weekly or similar. It would automate my learning and understanding of how the tool is working.
  • When we write control subject lines that include emojis, I have to go outside of Persado to find the emoji I want to use, copy, and come back to Persado. However there is a button to add emojis to the Persado generated subject lines.
  • Since Persado integrates with our ESP, Bronto, we'd really like to see more to the connection such as sharing conversion and revenue data.

Alternatives Considered

Movable Ink

Liveclicker was a competitor that I've analyzed in the past. They honestly have almost all of the same features. I think movable ink was a little stronger with their account management support

Persado

Phrasee wasn't an option to select, but we did evaluate them after hearing about them at a digital marketing summit. I liked what they were doing and the emails they were sending, but the pricing structure was outrageous! There was a 0% chance our CFO would approve the budget. To add salt to the wound, they also charged outrageously for a trial period. Ugh - as much as I wanted it, there was no way I could justify the ROI. Enter Persado. I got an email from a sales rep which accompanied a resource. I got excited but hesitated. I then saw they offered a free 14-day trial. Wait - what?? Free?! Yes. Wendy gave me the grand tour and holy cannoli I was immediately impressed with the results of our very first send. And it's only gotten better. Sorry Phrasee, I'm with Persado now.

Return on Investment

Movable Ink

  • Over a 9 month period we conducted an analysis and saw a 4.6 return on ad spend with using Movable Ink in various email marketing campaigns.
  • Using their web crop feature, we also saw time savings with managing products showcased in email that were available on our website.

Persado

  • Granted these numbers are driven by a number of other factors as well, our email marketing program has grown by 44% and 35% in the last 2 years respectively. More email opens from Persado subject lines has certainly contributed to this growth.
  • Open rate improvement of 11% between control subjects and Persado subjects.
  • Click rate improvement of 27% between control subjects and Persado subjects.
