Net-Results

Net-Results is very well-suited for small, medium and large businesses. They seem to be more advanced than what a typical enterprise level implementation would require. When selecting a marketing automation provider make it a point to find out the level of integration with Salesforce and other marketing technologies. Do they have pre-built automation modules or does it require building from the ground up? Also ask questions regarding its specific capabilities ... for example: is it a marketing automation provider? is it a CRM provider? etc

Pardot

I found Pardot really powerful and versatile. We didn't use the Drip Automation feature as much as I would have liked, but that's just because we didn't have many use cases to justify it. We were able to build out a complex custom CSS for our email templates and appreciated the rendering capabilities that allowed us to preview how our CSS would display across all the most popular browsers and mobile platforms.

Pros

Net-Results

  • Automated emails in a drip campaign that Sales can remove people from.
  • Lead scoring and alerts that go right to the lead owner.
  • Weekly reports to each Sales person with their hottest lead.
  • Very finely tuned segments that can be used for alerts, emails, and scheduled reports.
  • Integration with Salesforce. The Sales team can basically trigger their own emails.
Ken Barber | TrustRadius Reviewer

Pardot

  • Pardot syncs with our database, Salesforce and works seamlessly in updating records with individuals. Having this sync allows everyone in the organization to know where the last communication was and where they stand.
  • Pardot's A/B testing is the easiest A/B testing to use and communicate differently with individuals based on reporting. You are able to test this A/B before sending out an email unlike other platforms. The A/B testing is time saving and effective when trying to communicate with our audience.
  • Pardot's engagement studio is very easy to not only set-up but to follow. They set up their engagement platform in a way that you can see it overall and follow it like a flow chart, allowing the creator to truly understand where the emails/individuals are doing. The reporting of the engagement studios is detailed and very accessible.
Danielle Armour | TrustRadius Reviewer

Cons

Net-Results

  • Forms: Would love to have dependent fields, also ability to see all data a user entered without having to create a custom field for every form.
  • Campaign branching: Criteria need to be selected one at a time, which can be very time-consuming.
Christine Magnuson | TrustRadius Reviewer

Pardot

  • Pricey. I work for a nonprofit so it was a big decision to go with Pardot but it is one of the best in its class.
  • You must have the capacity/time/resources to actually use the functionalities and features. Otherwise, it could be a waste of money.

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

Net Results is pretty easy to use and understand. I wouldn't say that it is the best in comparison to MailChimp's drag and drop email builder, but Net Results do so much more than MailChimp that it is hard to even compare the two. Overall Net Results has good usability

The system has so many features that it does take a while to get spun up on what they all do and how they interact with each other. Once you dedicate the time to training to reach that crucial level of understanding however, it is easy to creatively apply the varied functionality of the program to address issues that would have previously seemed to mandate the use of another system.

There have been a couple of service incidents over the past few months. I'm not sure if it has to do with Pardot integrating their infrastructure with ExactTarget. However, they responded well with proactive communication and a debrief as to what happened.

Pardot support is tremendous. The knowledge base and in-application targeted help articles and videos are thorough and straightforward. If those don't do it, Pardot has office hours every business day with members of the team available to answer anything. I've called twice and they are incredibly helpful.

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.

Love the tool, so much easier to see what our visitors are doing, creating campaigns etc. One recommendation about forms in campaigns etc is to make sure the form is not shared between countries. To send out notifications to responsible, you should have one form per country or question.

Alternatives Considered

Net-Results

We've used ClickDimensions and Marketo. We felt that ClickDimensions was more limited as far as creating effective email campaigns and not as easy to use. It also is completely native to Dynamics CRM, which can be a positive and a negative. Marketo was the previous solution we owned, we are much happier with Net-Results. It's easier to use, not as complex and there is much better communication from their support team. When looking at a new solution we also looked at Act-On and Hubspot. Act-On probably would've been our second choice, but it didn't have as modern of a feel and wasn't quite as easy to use. Hubspot didn't really fit our business. It was very focused on SEO and blog posts. It didn't have the features we needed from a marketing standpoint
Todd Last | TrustRadius Reviewer

Pardot

We originally looked at both Marketo and Pardot for our marketing automation. They were considered to be almost identical products. The main reason for selecting Pardot was that we were already using salesforce and it made sense not to add too many different systems from different suppliers.

Return on Investment

Net-Results

  • Stronger re-engagement rates - The buy cycle for our product can be very long. Net-Results helps us keep in touch with prospects that may have gone cold.
  • Better asset utilization - Net-Results helps us drive continuous utilization of our assets.
  • Efficiency - The automation Net-Results has provided means we can focus on other tasks, like creating new assets or building new partnerships.
Gregory Smith | TrustRadius Reviewer

Pardot

  • Pardot saves sales hundreds of hours per year by automating the lead follow-up.
  • Gives the Sales team more visibility into what their leads are doing.
  • Ultimately, sales and marketing would be a lot harder if we didn't have Pardot. It's the glue that pulls everything together, and the amount of work and data processing that goes on behind the scenes thanks to the platform means that our sales team can focus on conversations rather than email followup, lead grading, etc.
