When we began with them we spent nearly 2.5 hours in various phone conversations to both make sure they could meet our needs and then working to connect their service to our sites.

As we are sending daily we required a more robust package which they were happy to set us up with.

Issues began from day 1. Our open rates with an optin list sending highly relevant content were almost all under 9%. Most in the 5% ranges.

This, at least for me (having well over 126k subscribers with another provider since 2004) was unheard of. It turns out they are unable to pass DMARK.

Beyond that, we discovered nearly weekly “overage” charges that should not have been associated with the plan they had put us on. When we contacted them they flat out refused to reverse them & insisted we have another call to upgrade to the service we had been told we were already paying for.

Many other issues also exist: 2x and 4x repeat sends to the subscribers and a dash that indicates our list is 25% larger than it is.

Ontraport the automation king

Ontraport is more suited to those looking for an all-around-system (marketing, sales, post-sales etc) rather than a sales only type system like Pipedrive. With some basic computer skills, a few integrations and a good Upworks Dev you can achieve almost anything.

It's not suited to computer illiterate people.

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.

ONTRAPORT is A Great Tool For Automating Sales & Marketing Messages

If you have multiple offers, or points of entry where you generate leads, I like ONTRAPORT a lot. You can build out centralized campaigns which make it very easy to manage your messaging and monitor performance. They're also good for multiple users, as each user can customize the interface to suit. I don't really like ONTRAPORT for a CRM though.

ONTRAPORT is definitely well-suited for sales businesses and companies. This allows you to track sales from various imports while tracking individual information on customers. You can essentially track and build any reporting you would like with the drag and drop system. However, this is not as well-suited for nonprofits as it does not track historical donor data.

It works really well for a person like me who has one small business, but with multiple sides to it. I can easily use Ontraport to market to both sides & manage the crossovers well where they happen.

Full featured, but intimidating and needs more polish

ONTRAPORT is great if you have a scalable team, and want to keep people accountable for their tasks.

It's not so great for agile development. Things can feel like they happen a bit too slow, and it's scary to test out small ideas. I realize this is rather subjective.

ONTRAPORT is very powerful, and accordingly pricey. I'd recommend it if you have a business model based on acquiring leads and emailing or otherwise contacting them regularly--if that kind of marketing/management is integral to your business, ONTRAPORT is definitely worth your money.

Due to the complexity of Ontraport and the size of the monthly subscription it isn't ideal for a solopreneur just starting up. Having said that, when you are ready to start using their system, the team at Ontraport made the transition very smooth and safe. I was transferring years of business and data from several different systems over to Ontraport and felt very secure the entire time.

How ONTRAPORT moved us from a manual business model to automation!

ONTRAPORT is well suited to small to medium businesses that use multiple programs (Outlook/Aweber/ShoppingCart/Amazon, etc.) to sell/fulfill products and services, sales and marketing effectiveness.

Would automation make your job easier? How do you track customer behavior before, during and after the sale? How do you follow-up with a customer who buys or doesn't buy your product?

ONTRAPORT is great for business-to-consumer relationships. It is less ideal for business-to-business relationships. The shopping cart is excellent, but not for items with multiple variations (i.e. selling a shirt with various colors and sizes). Love the all-in-one functionality - saves big money in not having to also use a landing page service, shopping cart, SMS, etc.

Ontraport is well suited for service based businesses where the sales process isn't very complex. It's not (yet) great for B2B where you are connecting to multiple people from the same company. (The database is structured around contact and not business.)

Just like any investment of time and money, I would suggest having a good plan of what you are going to use the software for before you get started. If you are already a growing business I think it's great and can help in many ways - communication with new prospects, customers, sales, up-sales, follow up and referrals.

If you are not sure how you will make money using Ontraport do more research before you get started.

It's not suited for a beginning marketer or newbie online business owner. The whole concept behind it is for someone who understands online business and marketing. Or maybe everyone should already know these things!
