Hassle-Free email service

Reviewed 2 years ago

So far we've had a great experience with the platform. 10/10 would recommend for the promotional products industry.

Reporting could improve but the basics are there.

Professional, customizable content

Reviewed 2 years ago

It's being used in our marketing department to lighten the load of the marketing team and make sure we stay in touch with our clients even when things are tight and we don't have a lot of time. The content is relevant and customers seem to enjoy it. We've been able to customize the content around feedback we get from clients, which has been really helpful, since we're able to know what they want.

Pros

I love the appearance of the content, it's very professional. My clients seem to be interested and the content is relevant to our target market. I also like how the campaigns can be customized, that way we can make sure our content is what our clients want.

Cons

It's a little bit costly for what you're getting, but I think it's overall worth it.

Vendor response

Thank you for your valuable review! We are thrilled that you and your clients found our content to be relevant, enjoyable and professional. We are here to help you effortlessly connect with your target audience and impress them with top-notch content. Please reach out if you need any assistance in the future. Best, The OutboundEngine Team

Superior Customer Service and Straightforward Program

Reviewed 2 years ago
Pros

Superior customer service team, and the program itself is very easy to use! I've had no issues so far and the customer service team is always available when I need them. The program has saved me a ton of time with writing content; since I'm running my company alone (for the most part) I don't always have time to generate content, update social media, or reply to clients. OutboundEngine does all that for me!

Cons

I honestly don't have anything negative to say about this company or software. It's been super helpful.

Vendor response

Thank you for leaving such a positive review about our service! We are thrilled that you found our customer service team and the program superior. Here at OBE, we take pride in saving our clients time and money by providing them with high-quality content for their marketing channels. Thank you for taking your time to highlight this on your review. Please let us know if you ever need assistance in the future. Best regards, The OutboundEngine Team

Helps me stay engaged with clients

Reviewed 2 years ago
Pros

Great for keeping my social media feeds active and staying engaged with my database. I thought the articles and content was the best out of my options and want to save time. I really like the content of the material and the fact that my content is unique to my clients.

Cons

Nothing, I really have enjoyed everything about it.

Vendor response

Not a good option

Reviewed a year ago

Nothing right now is being solved for us, extremely un happy with this service.

Pros

The posting for us on social media is the best feature for us. With that being said that was also one of the problems.

Cons

We signed up with Outbound Engine with high hopes they would help us grow and post content for us. Thinking they would be able to do what they say they could, we signed a 1 year deal. After using them now for 4 months we are very unhappy with the product they offer! The content they post is not relevant and we have not gotten one lead from the service. We are stuck using them even thought the service is terrible, because we signed a 1 year contract. I would recommend going with another company.

Stay Away...very expensive for simply sending out basic emails

Reviewed 2 years ago

Terrible.

Pros

Professional looking. Nothing more. Rep did not even know how to import more than half of my database and told me I had to manually enter each address.

Cons

First one must understand the salesperson will tell you repeatedly upfront the service is monthly and you can stop whenever you would like. Once you join and try to cancel then you suddenly are told you have a yearly service. Their are monthly programs but NOT yours. Secondly, the service is sophomoric at best and simply a blank template sent to YUOR database twice a month for hundreds of dollars...

People there are great. Used customer service several times with very high service every time.

Reviewed 5 years ago

Content for my social media and a newsletter email for my clients.

Pros

Content is good and the delivery is great. They do both email newsletters and social media posting to the top major ones.

Cons

You cannot customize the content. It would be useful to have some more control of the details of the content.

Vendor response

Thank you so much for sharing your feedback! We are glad you were satisfied with our email marketing and social media services. We are a growing company and your feedback is extremely valuable so we can continually improve our services. Best, The OutboundEngine Team

Streamlined Marketing Done for Me

Reviewed 2 years ago
Pros

It's very user-friendly and I feel comfortable using it. My account manager was very helpful and the implementation went smoothly. It does all of my marketing tasks practically for me, which is terrific! My clients enjoy the content and many have even reached out to me about it.

Cons

Not many cons to discuss! Ideally, the price would be lower.

Vendor response

Quality and Innovative Newsletters

Reviewed 2 years ago
Pros

Outboundengine provides quality and innovative newsletters; I don't have the time to generate quality content because my clients often take away my focus from marketing for my own company. Interaction with OBE staff was relatively easy and I liked the product offerings. The newsletter quality allows me to customize pieces of it with my own editorial content.

Cons

Price. Not cheap.

Vendor response

Thank you so much for sharing your positive experience with OutboundEngine! We strive to deliver the highest quality of service for the best price. We are glad you were satisfied with our customer service and newsletter quality. Please reach out if you need any assistance in the future. Best, The OutboundEngine Team

Pushy Sales team and Sales Manager who is a waste or protoplasm ....

Reviewed a year ago

This was the most unprofessional experience both with the sales team and the manager. On a Wednesday of the same week, we had the sales call. i was led to believe the could be my one-stop-shop. 2 days later as the bring me onboard, the truth comes out. I asked to stop process only minutes into it. They seem to feel that even though I stopped it before we got started, they want me to pay $$$$$ thousands

Pros

ZIP, ZILCH, NADA, NOTHING, ZERO, NOT A THING,

Cons

There was nothing impressive when after 15 minutes of what they call "onboarding" when I find that what was sold to me, they could not deliver without me also using another 3rd party they recommend. Using them and another 3rd party; Homefinder.com made no since. If one failed, so goes the other. I told them during the sales call, "I needed a 1 stop shop"

Vendor response

We are sorry that you feel this way about our services. While no company is perfect, we stand behind our product and our employees and have 10,000 satisfied customers. We will be happy to clear up misunderstandings if you reach out to us at feedback@outboundengine.com. Thank you! Best, The OutboundEngine Team

I have helped agents set up and use this program to help them keep up with Social Media posting.

Reviewed 5 years ago
Pros

I like that once you set it up you don't really have to think about it much more after that and it automatically sends out content at specified times for you.

Cons

I really do not like that it sends the same content out for different customers, it doesn't let you customize the articles themselves to add you own flair to it either.

Worst ROI product I’ve Used

Reviewed 2 years ago

Hated every minute...including the pushy sales team.

Pros

For the money I can’t think of anything that works for me.

Cons

Very impersonal. The campaign was to help my career but it is so generic it does not help.

Vendor response

While no company is perfect we stand behind our product and our employees and have 10,000 satisfied customers. We are truly interested in hearing constructive feedback but from the tone of this review it appears that this was not a good fit for either of us.
