As a small startup we are very conscious about picking up the tools we use to run the project. After suffering with a mess of using at the same time Trello , Slack , Telegram and what not, we arrived at a small set of tools that cover all our current needs. For product management, file sharing, team communication etc we chose Basecamp and couldn't be more happy about it. For Customer Support and Sales Intercom works amazingly well. We are using MailChimp for email marketing since over 4 years and it still covers all our needs. Then on payment side combination of Stripe and Octobat helps us to process all the payments and generate compliant invoices. On techie side we use Rollbar and GitLab (for both code and CI). For corporate email we picked G Suite. That all costs us in total around 300$ a month, which is quite okay.
In order to fix this, we had to set up our own content delivery service. We chose Amazon CloudFront and Amazon S3 to do the job because it has a good synergy with Heroku PaaS we are already using.

Customer.io Segment #Sendgrid Prior to using customer.io to automate our email campaigns, we had been using a combination of sendgrid and an engineer to manually set up campaigns in Rails. Since we had already been using segment to handle our data for other applications, integrating with customer.io took only a few minutes. Building automated email campaigns to connect and engage with our audience is a simple point and click, rules-based workflow. Importing html for emails from sendgrid to customer.io was a snap and the UX of the drag and drop editor is virtually the same as we had grown accustomed to with #sendgrid. I like that this platform has a powerful segmentation tool, which allows us to use relevant customer data such as website interaction behavior to help us craft personalized campaigns to connect with our users.

Achieving #MarketingAutomation using AutopilotHQ
Some of the key aspects evaluated here: - Ability to integrate with Segment or Zapier - Being multi-channel (Not just Email automation) - Dozens of integrations and capabilities: SFDC, In app messages, SMS, Push Notifications, Direct Mail, Segment Events... - Allowing teams to operate outside of engineering dependencies - Segmentation against user attributes / user traits - Static or Dynamic segments - Concept of user journeys - And more
Combined with Segment and its own sets of integrations and capabilities, AutopilotHQ ended up being a very powerful tool for Product Marketing to use at SmartZip.
Couple of years later, there certainly were some overlap with the features offered by Intercom 's engagement module , but our team kept on using this tool given the greater range of functionality / capabilities.
