Purchased data Vs Opt-In data
In the Terms & Conditions of Mailchimp, they specify that their system cannot be used with data that has not opted-in to receive your communication. This proves difficult for most B2B companies who grow their audience through third party or purchased lists. You will not have this issue with GatorMail. Check out your compliance with Mailchimp’s Ts & Cs. If you don’t comply with these terms (e.g. if you are using email lists without individual consent or you are sending email to generate leads) you risk being blacklisted.
Identify contacts who visit your site
GatorLeads gives you a complete view on the people who visit your website. Not just company or IP address but their full contact details. And it will give each visitor a lead score depending on how many pages they view. That means you can send a nice list of warm leads to your sales team on a regular basis to keep them busy.
Much better deliverability with Spotler
With Mailchimp, four or five unknown companies will share the same domain, so if one of them is blacklisted for sending dodgy content, it will affect your deliverability. GatorMail gives you your own dedicated sending domain and we have SendForensics which will predict deliverability before you send your email campaign. Our platform also uses AI to learn your systems and measure audience reactions, which helps you create the most effective email campaigns going forward.
Track leads from PPC campaigns
If you’re spending money on PPC campaigns, you can only track the leads who form fill. You can create UTMs via Spotler to track all the details of your campaign including search terms and who has clicked, giving you a much clearer campaign ROI. Mailchimp can’t help you here.
Brand Awareness Vs Lead Generation
Mailchimp is great for sending a weekly Newsletter to your current customers but if you want your prospects to turn into customers – and quickly – you are going to need a different platform that helps to generate leads. And that is what Spotler does best.
B2B vs B2C
The needs of a B2B business are different to those selling directly to consumers. Gatormail was created for B2B companies and all the functionality has been designed around those specific needs. The B2B buying cycle can be longer than a consumer decision and usually requires back-up from your sales team. Mailchimp is like shooting in the dark. Our platform gives you the night vision goggles to clearly view those buyers, which helps you track, understand and convert them.
All systems in one place.
If you want to manage and automate all of your marketing channels with one platform and make your life easier, our platform can do that. We have a tool with which you can manage your social media channels and another which helps to organise your events. With Mailchimp, you have so many separate systems to co-ordinate and manage and they don’t necessarily integrate or help each other to maximise performance. CommuniGator takes the hard work out of B2B marketing, giving you more time to work on new ideas.
Understanding the journey of customers and leads
Tracking your customers and leads from the start of your campaign through your website and to the point of sale, enables you to understand their journey so you can tailor your future campaigns to work more effectively. With Mailchimp, you can see the clickers but with Spotler you can see all the various touchpoints which helps to understand them and their information needs. That’s valuable data.
