We have been using Heyo for some time now and have found it to be a great and easy to use software to quickly and easily run the sweepstakes we have planned on all our digital platforms. We also use the marketing campaign creation tool and it is very intuitive and in a few minutes we have a great campaign ready to send.
  • It allows the creation of marketing campaigns quickly. It takes no more than an hour to create a complete, eye-catching campaign with all the design and text elements we need to reach more customers on all networks, website and email.
  • It has the tool to create sweepstakes and contests in the different social networks (Facebook, Instagram, twitter and on our website) with very customizable formats to adapt them to our products.
  • I like that everything we create in the program, is responsive, that is to say that it is perfectly appreciated and adapts to any mobile device, which is great so that all followers, no matter what devices they use, can participate in the contests.
  • I wish it had a lot more templates for creating campaigns and contests. Although they are customizable, the designs as such, should vary more and be more current.
  • When I upload a video for video contests, the whole system slows down and becomes very cumbersome and the loading gets very slow, taking too long to load.
  • To be able to integrate Mailchimp for email marketing campaigns was a big challenge, we tried many times and the program would not integrate, only after several attempts and with the help of technical support.
This program is perfect for all companies that want to increase their followers and customers on social networks and website, because with contests and sweepstakes can have greater reach, plus it is very easy to use and the result of the images is great.
  • Creation of marketing campaigns, using customizable templates that adapt to our products, with different designs and styles.
  • Allows you to create contests, sweepstakes and surveys quickly and easily on social media platforms and the website.
  • It has reports and metrics that allow us to know the success of the campaigns carried out.
  • This is a software that is very easy to use, you don't need to be a programmer or web developer to be able to handle it with ease. Our entire marketing team is satisfied with its use, as it has saved us hours in the creation of marketing campaigns and contests to get more followers in the networks. Thanks to its suggested contests, we have captured more interactions, leads and increased sales.

I have been using Heyo to create video campaigns for the trainings that I deliver to the employees and customers. I have been using it within this one year but my experience has been satisfactory to say the least. The software has not inspired me a lot, neither it has anything fancy to offer. Also, I use Heyo to create promos and contests for the training courses for the customers that result in them signing up for the trainings.
  • Creates quick campaigns without asking lots of questions and without much hassle
  • Have good libraries of images, texts, videos to help the user with
  • Website is easy to use, interface is user-friendly, multiple options to choose the campaign
  • Lots of improvements required. I will start with the website design, outdated fonts are used
  • So many typos in the text. For example, instead of "Free Trial", "Free Trail" is written at some places.
  • Too much text and too small font size when I hover over the campaigns options.
Well-suited for small to medium sized companies which are investing in launching campaigns and promos and are ready to compromise on the quality of the content that is produced. Not suited for companies that want their software to be market-leading, error-free, fast, secure, and trustworthy.
  • Campaign design
  • Video and photo contest
  • Giveaway contests design
  • Heyo has helped garner good number of users for our company in terms of trainings
  • Customers have sometimes complained about the quality of the campaigns that are produced
  • Internal users (company employees) have also given negative feedback about Heyo
I have used Kajabi and Geru for email campaigns and video trainings campaign design and both have produced remarkable results. Heyo does not stand near the competition of these software and need to improve big time. I chose Heyo considering its lower cost than the competitors but the quality I am getting in return, I cannot compromise on that
