Optimizely

As the name suggests, Optimizely’s all about getting more out of your efforts. It facilitates experimentation and personalization from the same place and across both product and marketing teams.

Sprinklr

Sprinklr pulls in what customers are saying on social media platforms, messaging channels, blogs, forums, news and review sites, and then converts all that unstructured intel into actionable insights (using AI) so you can deliver personalized marketing, proactive care and amazing experiences.

Our entire marketing team shares a calendar within Sprinklr that has campaigns, tasks, creative content and action items all in one place. For example, the product marketing team will create a campaign in Sprinklr for our fall product launch. This campaign will then be filled with tasks that relate to ensure the fall product launch is a success. Automated workflows kick off new tasks so that everyone stays on top of deadlines. So, once a blog for the product launch is written and uploaded to Sprinklr, a task will automatically be created for the web team to publish this blog.

I’m yet to find the perfect marketing automation tool, but Iterable was very easy to get set up (we did it in two weeks), the technical documentation is great and the API is easy to use - our engineers were very happy. It also has good A/B testing capabilities, campaigns are easy to build and send, their workflows work well and it’s easy to add personalization to campaigns.
