Upviral: A great asset

Reviewed 2 years ago

Upviral is a complete viral leads delivery service. And on the whole it has grown my email list more than any other tool. If you are looking for something to exponentialize your efforts in reaching new people, there is nothing better.

Pros

The best thing about this is the ease of email list growth. The templates suggest pathways you can take people and the setup is clear. It does take time to 'think out' your campaign and how you can use it, and the set up, of course, is a commitment, but! Once it's set up, it just keeps going in a loop. Pretty amazing. New leads coming in all the time.

Cons

I am not a fan of the templates themselves. The marketing component is covered, but the aesthetics are dated. This seems like something that could be handled with the addition of a good graphic designer and a few more choices. There are too many platforms out there now (Kajabi, Clickfunnels, Kartra to name a few) doing similar things better for this to lag. I am also an avid Kajabi user and wish that Upviral integrated with them as well. Because I cannot use Kajabi as a source of autoresponder, I have to manually import leads constantly, which is not convenient.

Vendor response

Thank you for your honest review, Christel. We highly appreciate it.

UpViral from a User Review

Reviewed a year ago

I would recommend this tool to big and small businesses to gain leads and for ease of use. The rewards element of the tool is an added bonus.

Pros

When I first became exposed to this tool, I knew it was a game changer and that it was powerful. I became a sponge in absorbing the information on how to use the tool. The tool offers all kinds of templates similar to other tools, but this system and it's automation in getting leads is absolutely fantastic.

Cons

My only Con is that I didn't use it enough in with the various task in my toolbox.

It helps to make your brand viral

Reviewed 3 years ago

UpViral is really great and it's public API helping me to make the brand viral on autopilot. Native integration with ESP makes it more awesome. In one of my recent campaign, I have generated approximate 5000 leads in just 20 days. It was really awesome. Thanks UpViral team :)

Pros

I like the auto disable fraud leads features because it saves a lot of time for filtering fraud leads. UpViral has good fraud detection system and auto disable frauds. I really like this feature.

Cons

It doesn't has option to add SMTP on campaign level. It only allows SMTP on account level.

Best Value For Your Money

Reviewed 2 years ago

I am using Upviral to grow my email list in order to have the right audience to market my product to. I am impressed with the high value of the product when compared to the competition

Pros

I am very impressed that I, as a newbie, was able to set up my campaign in less than 30days. I am fascinated with the “Share” page to further grow my email list. I was able to easily integrate my campaign with my email autoresponder The platform is easy to navigate. The training videos are short and easy to follow. And if you need help, there is one on one customer support.

Cons

Integrating my campaign with my autoresponder was difficult. The instructions were not clear as to how to handle autoresponders that were not listed.

Patricia, thank you for your positive review. We appreciate it!

All in one tool, from Campaign and landing page creation to unique share links and integration to email marketing platforms, you have all the features you need in there.

UP Viral First Competition

Reviewed 2 years ago

So far so good. The first campaign we made some small errors, but quickly reached nearly 1000 targeted leads. Still have 2 weeks of the promo to go and have spent 45 mins with an UpViral guru who just coached us on ways to take things to a much higher level.

Pros

The process of setup is fantastic and user-friendly. Once you have planned your marketing design and implementation then it really is just a matter of filling in the gaps that UpViral sets for you to do.

Cons

If there is an issue it is whether you are capable of good design work on your project. You can always outsource this aspect to ensure your project has a great visual impact.

Vendor response

Ian, congrats on the result of your UpViral campaign, and thank you for the positive feedback. Keep growing your email list with UpViral :) All the best, UpViral Team

Impressive

Reviewed 2 years ago
Pros

The personality behind the product is what got me. I have been following Wilco for a few years now, and I stayed subscribed even when I didn't have an audience to build, because I could see the value in the product and enjoyed the way Upviral communicated. Now that I'm ready to launch a campaign I took a Webinar and appreciate the value from that and the discounts offered.

Cons

It's tricky to translate some of the general campaign building techniques into our industry, but the case studies are helpful and I can't think of a suggestion on how Upviral might improve their software to help me. I have not taken advantage of the 1 on 1 call yet, so maybe that will help. I did originally think Upviral would replace Mailchimp, but now realize that's not the case. I could imagine in the future that Upviral could include a mail service beyond the campaigns.

Solid Product

Reviewed 3 years ago

The product has gotten more intuitive over time and with the recent addition of campaign templates it really speeds up the implementation process... that coupled with a responsive support department make it a very impressive platform.

Pros

"Custom actions" really opens doors to the type of options available to qualify leads with... Strong product.

Cons

Still awaiting direct referral options via SMS and email... would really make the platform complete.

UpViral is a great tool for growing your list and sparking a little interest in your followers.

Reviewed 2 years ago

UpViral delivers top to bottom. Not only is the product good, but they are dedicated to their product and customers in the form of continually upgrading it. Support is prompt, reliable, and professional. UpViral covers all of the bases. It is what you should expect from a company and its product/service. But just like getting a fair picture and the truth in reporting the news, oddly enough, good companies like UpViral seem to be rare as time passes.

Pros

The software is well organized. The instruction guide is clear and to the point.

Cons

In fairness, I cannot find fault with the product or company. They deliver on product, and they are there to support you.

Thank you so much for your review, Scott. We appreciate your kind words :) All the best, UpViral Team

I am running a digital marketing agency and UpViral is a great tool that I added on my tool belt. I don't use it with every client and on every campaign but it is good when you can pull out one more ace from the sleeve. :)

Pros

Cons

I use HubSpot for CRM. It is connected with UpViral and my new contacts are entering the CRM. However, I have to manually to give consent for new contacts that enter from the campaign. This is more on the integration side.

Viral lead generation made easy and fun. UpViral is a solid tool for this.

Reviewed 3 years ago

Overall I think this is one of the best tools out there for viral lead generation. If you want to build your email list faster, it's a great idea to encorporate viral list building in your business, by using contests and other viral campaigns. UpViral has been around for years, has a very good customer support and the owner/creator Wilco creates great training for customers, so you can always improve your marketing skills.

Pros

To be honest, the main reason I like this tool is that the whole set up is smooth and doesn't take much time. You can get a quality viral lead generation campaign up in running fast, by just using the templates and standard settings and making a few customization. Upviral makes it easy, offers enough documentation and has a very user-friendly interface. Once you play around with it for some hours, you'll feel like you know this platform and can really start creating new campaigns fast (including cloning your successful campaigns and then just changing some details). Overall this is a modern, solid tool that works great for beginners and also offers advanced settings in case you need it later.

Cons

There's not much that I dislike. It's all pretty solid and you can see a lot of research and testing went into the development of this tool. It's also frequently updated. I would personally like to see a couple of extra social sharing methods being added and be able to customize the points system more. I need to add that having more options doesn't always guarantee you get better results, because it's often better to stick to proven settings instead of trying to come up with something unique. Pricing could also be a little bit lower, but you pay for a high-quality tool and with the amount of viral leads you can collect, this quickly pays back your investment.

Vendor response

Thanks, we highly appreciate your honest review :)

Powerful, Unique, and Very Flexible

Reviewed 9 months ago

UpViral is an extremely well though out platform. It is very user friendly, support is very helpful, and the user-base and community is significant and active, which means that there is always useful help/suggestions on hand.

Pros

UpViral solves a unique Use-Case for my business. I needed more of a Reward Program implemented rather than a pure viral marketing campaign. I either bought or subscribed to a number of other products, but they all didn't quite solve my need. Although UpViral isn't exactly designed for my use-case, with a bit of creative thinking (and some personalised help from support), I was able to create a reward program campaign that fits my need almost exactly. The reason I could do this (and where the other platforms failed) is because of the flexibility and customisation built into UpViral.

Cons

My exact use-case wasn't quite in the realm of the UpViral platform. It took a bit of creative thinking and trial-and-error to get the platform to work the way I needed my Reward Program to function. It wasn't an "out of the box" solution. I needed to lean on UpViral support to help me achieve my goal. In many ways this is also testament to UpViral's strength and flexibility.

Upviral is one of best strategic tool in our marketing agency

Reviewed 2 years ago

Upviral gives us the possibilty to lower the costs per lead a lot and build communities a lot faster. 99% of the viral processes is fully automated. So it also saves us a lot of time. For beginners there are a lot of tutorials. For advanced users Upviral gives a lot of freedom to customize pages and the rest of the campaign.

Pros

Upviral is one of the tools that we use a lot for our business. We help clients with their projects. Especially those projects in the WEB3 space. With Upviral we can easily build communities and convert them into sales. It lowers the cost per lead a lot.

Cons

There is nothing we don't like about Upviral. It is one of the strategic tools we need a lot for our business. The only thing that I like least is the lack of 3rd party integrations we use a lot. Like Groove. This can be solved with webhooks or HTML forms.

UpViral is a Complete Solution

Reviewed 2 years ago

It has been a very positive experience. Having used software where technical support is dismissive at best and non existent at worst, UpViral's team and consultants are switched on to our needs. They listen and respond. Wilco's online record speaks for itself. Campaign Consultant, [SENSITIVE CONTENT] too has a proven track record of lead generation. These top professionals make themselves available to us regularly. If you are struggling, their tech support is responsive the same day.

Pros

The optin and social share templates which have come on stream mean that coding is a thing of the past. It also does much more than grab leads. It is designed to stimulate word of mouth referrals. As most marketers know, this remains the most power method of gaining meaningful leads.

Cons

At first, the interface was a little daunting. However the team hold a weekly co pilot show where any ideas etc are taken on board.

I have an eBook lead magnet that comes with 6 Free Bonuses and 3 Offers. I sell the eBook for $4.99 to weed out tire kickers. Now I use UpViral to promote the eBook by giving away the FREE Bonuses and a few chapters as prizes for sharing. And if they like the free chapters and Free Bonuses they can click through and buy the book to get access to everything.

Terrible Customer Service

Reviewed 9 months ago

Their widget is OK, kind of convoluted to use, but the customer service is really bad. I was having issues with logging into the account and the widget was broken for over a month. I got locked out of the account even though they charged me for a whole year and after two people no one is able to help me resolve my issue. I'm trying to cancel the platform, but not even sure if I can because I'm locked out of my account even after doing multiple password resets. It's gotten to the point where they say my e-mail doesn't exist in their database. Just a mess.

Pros

It was helpful to get people to share your content, but it depends on the type of industry you are in. Probably doesn't work for B2B.
