Overall Satisfaction with Listrak

Currently, Listrak is the primary digital marketing platform utilized at our company. We use Listrak strictly for email marketing campaigns that are sent to our customers on a monthly basis. Listrak simplifies a variety of tedious issues, such as email automation based on customer engagement and ability to save developing and design time by implementing dynamic content.
  • Analytics: Their contact, conversion, and message analytics are far superior to many other platforms I have used. They have a variety of import/export functionalities that trump their completion. The amount and variety of ways you are able to segment your database and lists seems infinite - which is convenient for anyone dealing with list sizes of approximately 2 million.
  • Unique Tools: Listrak offers unique tools such as model acquisition, shopping cart abandonment, & Coupon Manager. The latest addition, 'Coupon Manager' allows you to generate Barcodes & QR codes in email and SMS campaigns. All features and tools have an analytics dashboard that helps you understand a variety of data that will benefit future marketing campaigns
  • It is rare that I have issues or feel like Listrak has an area to improve in. The company is constantly ahead of the market and making additions/improvements on a monthly basis. That being said ... I have one area to suggest improvements: COMPOSER
  • Composer - Drag & Drop editor: Although their design software with the new 'Composer' is better than your average WYSIWYG editor, their drag & drop editor lacks some basic design tools that stunt your ability to design out-of-the-box email campaigns. I typically write all my email code, so this doesn’t necessarily affect me in a negative manner. But ... if coding emails isn't your strong point, then the lack of design features and limited template selection could be bothersome. (*disclaimer - I do not believe Listrak's drag & drop editor is garbage, but it does fall short when compared to some of its competition.)
  • Ability to execute dynamic content & intricately segmented email campaigns has made a hugely positive impact on our marketing capabilities while maintaining a large database.
  • Listrak does cost slightly more than its competition, therefore making me (the consumer) look a little harder at our ROI since implementing Listrak as our primary digital marketing platform. All-in-all, it is safe to say that Listrak has definitely had a positive impact on our overall business goals of creating campaigns that increase customer engagement, click-thru rates, and most importantly conversions.
Listrak stands out from the listed companies for a variety of reasons, but there are 3 main areas that make Listrak my go to platform.
1. Superior control over your Database & Lists
2. Excellent deliverability rate for businesses that possess a large database.
3. Pricing: I know I mentioned this as one of Listrak's semi-weak points - but the monthly rate negotiated with our account manager for 1,000,000 email sends /month is definitely lower than the listed competition (based on online estimates, not speaking with an account representative.)
Listrak is wonderful if your company has a large email database with a goal of increasing customer engagement. The wide variety of analytics & reports you can produce makes Listrak extremely useful for data driven marketing techniques. As I stated previously, Listrak is slighly behind its competition with their drag & drop editor, 'Composer.' If you're looking for ease-of-use for email design and a variety of responsive templates to choose from, Listrak may not be your best option, but a little bit of email coding knowledge makes that problem irrelevant
