Pros

Great tool to engage customers but also fantastic CRM to increase customer interaction with my business.
We found that NationBuider has with very powerful tools to help drive our success.
This was so easy to use. We hired one of their recommended deveopers, they built the website and truly it was flawless.

Pros

Snowball is a great product that makes it that much easier to raise money via text-to-give and other useful features. They provide a great customer and user experience.
Snowball tools helped Encuentro take our fundraising activities to the next level - super easy to use and set-up campaigns and I love the text to give feature and online auctions.
Adding items takes minutes and editing them is just as easy. I loved the simplicity of the auction itself and that it could be run by one person short on time.

Cons

System is in serious need of a user experience upgrade - badly. It was extremely frustrating to figure out and some of the services required code-knowledge.
Ultimately, between the odd culture and the mess of the social profiles, we ended up switching to a different software.
It's also very, very expensive. The "newsfeed" type feature showing people who subscribed/unsubscribed/interacted in social media was strange and useless.

Cons

My organization is still charged the processing fees. I would imagine this is "industry standard.
Every once in a while, a purchaser has failed attempts at donating/purchasing a ticket. This usually leads to a double charge with the need to refund.
Sadly, it just was not robust enough for our needs.
