Ontraport

Starting a business you have enough stuff to deal with. Ontraport takes the headache out of the tech side. Everything works together and you don't ever get left alone to figure things out. I would beg any new business to invest in Ontraport. Or if you want to grow and scale an existing business it would be great. I think it more for service-based business.

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

Ontraport

  • User segmentation for specific messaging is key for us because it helps drive our new client conversions and existing client repurchasing.
  • ONTRAPORT plays nice with our scheduling software and WordPress so we can implement new material without hassle.
  • Campaigns and automation is simple to set up and monitor which helps us use more of their tools instead of paying for complex features we'll never use.
Jeremy Estes | TrustRadius Reviewer

SALESmanago

  • 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

Ontraport

  • Integrations. Basically, all integrations are done using Zapier. This is a huge time suck. In other programs like ActiveCampaign, you have WordPress plugins to import your data from Gravity Forms. It takes 2 minutes to set up. With Zapier, even a simple integration takes a minimum of 30 minutes to setup and test to the point where you trust it.
  • Documentation: there is a lot of documentation, but a lot of it is confusing with not enough examples to make something clear.
  • Templates: other programs like Drip focus on more templates for campaigns. While there are a few here, there's really not a ton and they don't seem carefully curated.
  • Learning curve: it took a really long time to get it set up for our business. I appreciated the onboarding sessions, which definitely helped a lot, but it could have been simpler.
  • Version 5: last year ONTRAPORT launched their newest version of their software. I can see that it's a foundation that they will be able to build a lot on, but it's not fleshed out yet. Like a fresh foundation and a good building, but not a lot of paint or polish yet.
  • Sales funnels: managing people through a sales funnel just happens through a custom field that you set up. There's no predetermined "section" for something that a lot of sales teams would want. It makes it easy to not know what's going to happen with your automation when you send someone to a new part of the sales funnel (ie. you move someone to the next part of the sales funnel, it triggers an automation, maybe you weren't aware of that). It would be great if it gave you a quick summary of some of the automation you're about to send when you take actions.
  • Intimidation: enough said. It just feels intimidating to set this stuff up. This may be true for all the other automation programs too though.
Andrew Muller | TrustRadius Reviewer

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.

My client was already using Ontraport and had a decent investment in the tool. As soon as we turn around the revenue situation with my client's products, we will be ditching OAP immediately, despite the significant re-implementation cost we are going to face moving to a new system. I am part of a high-end, professional marketing group, and the overwhelming sentiment with these other professionals is that one should run away from this as fast as humanly possible. I thought their words were just ungrounded opinion, and I deeply regret that I did not heed them more closely before sinking still more time and effort into OAP.

The software is just easy to use. The UI is fairly intuitive. The help system is pretty good. I find it is pretty quick to get my work completed and if I don't document my things well, I can always figure out how I did something when I need to make changes.When I have a problem the tech support is easy to deal with and when things need to get escalated they are resolved quickly.

Most of the time OP runs fine. But I've had to submit more support tickets this year do to messages, seq.'s or rules not running correctly. Also experienced slow response times moving in and around OP.

The techs are reasonably savvy, highly courteous and want to do right by their customers. Unfortunately, the product they are supporting is so deeply flawed that there's only so much they can do when your legitimate business requirements are simply not supported.

Alternatives Considered

Ontraport

Ontraport is capable of more than MailChimp and AWeber, both of which I would consider beginner systems. It is also easier to use and understand initially than Infusionsoft, and takes less time to get off the ground when you make the change. It is capable of very complex tasks but the user interface is simple and the tasks are easy to construct. It takes away my worry and pain, that reason alone is enough to recommend them!

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

Return on Investment

Ontraport

  • We can save costs on excessive mailings as we are more targeted in our efforts and wasting less communication.
  • We have been able to more effectively target relevant donors that have given more recently.
  • ONTRAPORT has consolidated the tracking software that we have used for contact information.
Kalyn Hoffman | TrustRadius Reviewer

SALESmanago

  • 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
