Robly

Robly is well suited to nonprofit organizations looking to send mass emails. It is very useful for environments such as small nonprofits, where users may not be particularly savvy tech users, as well as for those who aren't particularly knowledgeable about media marketing because Robly provides a lot of support. Because the editing platform is so similar to Microsoft Word, most users will be able to do basic editing without needing training.

250ok from Validity

250ok is a great tool for companies that have recently switched ESPs to monitor inbox placement or for companies that historically have been having email deliverability issues and would like to learn about the root cause and improve. Unlike ReturnPath, 250ok doesn't offer certification, but honestly, you don't need certification if you follow the Gmail/Microsoft/AOL/Yahoo bulk sender guidelines. I haven't seen a company which significantly improved their results with that certification and I've been working for one major ESP for 7 years. 250ok is a good diagnostic/monitoring tool but it is not a panacea for those who continue to violate sender guidelines due to poor list/content management.

Pros

Robly

  • Ease of use. We switched to Robly from Constant Contact, and find it much more intuitive.
  • Reporting. At a glance, we can see how effective our campaigns have been.
  • I don't have a lot of experience with HTML, but I'm able to create good looking e-mails using the tools provided by Robly.
  • The price is right! Our non-profit saved money by switching from Constant Contact to Robly.

  • They provide a wide-ranging tool to view your email templates in many different email clients under different circumstances. We used this tool to identify specific issues we couldn't test that a small subset of users had complained about.
  • The Seedlist Optimizer Tool does the legwork for you to identify which ESPs are used the most and gives you a custom seed list for testing.
  • The Campaign Diagnostics report shows immediate feedback after sending on how your email is performing and where you can improve in the future.

Cons

Robly

  • You have to navigate through some repetitive steps to edit content.
  • I'd like to be able to save my settings that I regularly use, a labeling system for settings would be very helpful.
  • Email support or the ability to submit a support ticket when needed would be very helpful.
Genie Forkner | TrustRadius Reviewer

250ok from Validity

  • Does not specifically identify which email addresses are spam traps
  • This is software as a service, so it's not managed and you need to have team members who can make adjustments to your email program
  • Would be nice if 250ok had a direct relationship with ISPs and could reach out on your behalf

Because we like the price and value. The annual subscription model allows us to maximize usage without worrying too much about cost, being a small mom and pop outfit.

We feel that allowing the USER to interact with templates more readily is NOT there. The social media APPS could be simplified and marketed better to allow users to discover ROBLY through our Facebook page or TWITTER account in order to subscribe.

We sometimes got through to a message taking service but they were not able to resolve our issue with a one-call solution necessarily always.

We should have been granted a MOBILE RESPONSIVE email template from the get-go. We were never offered any alternatives.

Alternatives Considered

Robly

Robly is less expensive and more user friendly than Constant Contact. We selected Robly because of the reduced price and features. Constant Contact fit well with our needs, but when another organization recommended Robly to us and we tried it, we decided to stick with it. We believe we made the right decision.

It’s cheaper than its competitors and it has dmarc tracking.

Return on Investment

Robly

  • The community of peer users that we have known when working with Robly as the main service for our drip campaigns has been very inclusive and informative.
  • We recommend using Robly for postcard shipments, to find audiences, and to manage customer conversion processes.

250ok from Validity

  • Easy real-time inbox placement and deliverability monitoring for IPs and domains.
  • Proactive problem resolution to avoid potential issues.
  • Great addition to other deliverability tools to get the full picture on performance.
  • Easy to partner with and to get trained.
