Pros: It's really simple and easy to get it up and running and we can customise the things we need to. Makes it easy to integrate website content with email delivery via Marketo.

Cons: Took a little while to figure out the rules for how new content versus older but updated content was handled but we got plenty of help from the support team answering our questions. In general I think any limitations are more on Marketo's side than Perkuto's although their API has improved.

Overall: Integration of our systems using an off-the-shelf package, meant we didn't have to build custom solutions. Saved time and money on our project.

Pros: Digesto was created specifically for Marketo you can tell the creators have used Marketo, making the API integration fairly seamless.

Cons: My only real complaint since I started using the software was limited reporting capabilities on individual digest sends. However, since the release of the cloning digest feature, that problem has been solved.

Overall: Automates the daily sending of our blog digest emails via Marketo.

Pros: Lots of references to figure out how to set it up with Marketo. Super simple keeping you inline and not getting too far off. Price is fantastic.

Cons: I wish it had the ability to parse out more of the elements into tokens. Instead of only using their templates to house the images, maybe it passed a token for image source so I could plug it into my branded templates in Marketo. or even a token for just the link to use in other CTAs. But overall I really like it and got it to work really well with our branded templates.

Overall: super fast to setup. you can schedule your sends. It works

Pros: It was very easy to implement and get up and going. It is super easy to use (like, set it and forget it), and they offer great customer support. I'm very pleased with the product and how much time it saves us by automating a lot of manual work we use to have to do to get our newsletter out.

Cons: I really can't think of any cons. The software just works great, just as promised. Any hiccups were quite unimportant.

Overall: Automating something that we would have to do manually every week. It's saved us at least 2 hours per week.

Pros: Digesto brings an easy solution to something that Marketo doesn't offer. I had been wanting to set up a daily blog digest to a list of followers and Digesto was able to do just that. The setup is pretty straightforward and it integrates well w/ Marketo.

Cons: I'm not pleased with the look and feel of the digest emails. While set up was fast, it was much more manual than I expected. Just getting an image set up in the email took quite a bit of coding knowledge and I never actually succeeded. If you need bare bones emails, this is for you. If you'd like them to look a bit more modern then look elsewhere.

Hi, Thanks for your review. Adding images to your email can be done with the use of merge "tags". These are like short-codes that will pull images from your feed and add it to the email template. We can also do it for you and help with reviewing the design of your email (no additional charges). Please reach out via direct message at suport@perkuto.com.

Pros: Easy and intuitive to use, solid integration with Marketo, once set up you can let it do its thing without having to think about it too much.

Cons: It'd be good if the digest emails were a little easier to customize, but I have a feeling that might be down to the limitations of our blog settings, rather than Digesto itself

Pros: It is an easy way to take great content you're already publishing on your blog and make it available in email campaigns inside of Marketo. It's easy to use and flexible. Formatting can be controlled and inline styling is supported, so you can be sure your emails will look great. In the scheme of B2B Marketing technology it's inexpensive.

Cons: The initial set-up in Marketo has some complexity and dependencies. But once it's set-up, tested and working you can mostly set it and forget it.

We use Digesto to send out weekly and daily email from a RSS feed from our company's blog.

Pros: I like that this software is a "set it and forget it" kind of software. It is very reliable and is also great for international time zones. You can choose to send the digest in the local timezone of the country that the email is going out in.

Cons: I don't like that when you make little changes to the digest (text or design or schedule for the digest), the "On" switch flips to "Off" and you have to remember to turn it back on. It also takes 5-10 minutes for the test email to come through, it would nice if it was quicker.

Overall: We have programs that run in this software every single day and it is reliable enough to "set it and forget it" once you have thoroughly tested and optimized.

Thanks for your feedback! The 5 minutes delay is added by Marketo as we schedule the email send. I understand the frustration, but unfortunately we don't have control on this piece. I posted a request to Marketo to request that this delay is removed or reduced. Please cast your vote to support this idea: https://nation.marketo.com/message/186074-remove-5-minutes-delay-on-api-schedule-campaign. In regards to the On-Off switch when editing, this is to avoid having a Digest to fire at the same time you're doing changes, hence potentially sending a broken/not tested email. I think we certainly can improve the UI to make it easier for you to reactivate after you are done editing - I added that to our future improvements. Best, David

Pros: Easy to use interface. We used the system for our RSS feed to email newsletter. The integration with Marketo and Salesforce was a key selling point for us, as we pulled in our database of opt-in users that way.

Cons: As with any newsletter, requires a lot of testing of templates in email programs. It would be great if it had an easier way to remove elements from the RSS feed.

Needs a much better testing and preview functionality, with the ability to send to other users.

Thanks for your Review! I'd be happy to help with sending your test to other users. It can usually be done by adding them to your Marketo Smartlist. Also happy to discuss how we can improve removing elements from RSS feed.

Pros: The Digesto interface is incredibly simple and intuitive, and testing emails is quick and easy. I also appreciate the confirmation emails received after each digest fires successfully.

Cons: One setting was causing our newsletters to clone themselves in Marketo, causing missed mailings. Finding and turning off that setting took a little bit of digging but was obvious when we knew what to look for. Fortunately, Digesto's customer service and responsiveness is great!

Pros: Have received amazing 1:1 support, training, etc. from team at Perkuto on setting up the platform, extending the free trial, helping build a custom template based on our code, etc.

Very easy app to get your blog digests fed into Marketo. We're using Digesto to replace MailChimp.

Cons: Nothing to complain about so far. Documentation and in-app guidance could be a tiny bit more descriptive/robust.

Seamless integration and great customer support.
