What is Braze?
What do you like best about Braze?
Braze has a great UI and is definitely user friendly. When it comes to setting up canvas’s and campaigns it’s really great! They also have a great help center.
What do you dislike about Braze?
I can think of a few small things that make using Braze a bit challenging. Staging and Production don’t sync, so if you test in staging, you have to recreate everything all over again in prod. It would be great if there was a copy-over button. Also, when it comes to attaching templates to campaigns, they are entirely separate. If you update a template, you have to go and reattach it to the campaign; it would be nice if when a template was updated, the campaign was automatically updated as well. In addition, I wish there was a feature that would auto-save all your template, campaign, canvas and segment work every minute or 30 seconds. If you forget to hit save, you will lose all your work.
What problems is Braze solving and how is that benefiting you?
Braze simplifies the user journey with their canvas flow feature. It’s so easy to use and includes so many options on how to actually use it. It’s a great feature!
“The ability to create segments and target specific users is super useful. Tricking the results of campaigns is also straight forward and pretty advanced.”
“It also has a pretty comprehensive documentation and short courses and video materials that you can use to get a better understanding of its possibilities.”
“Nimble and effective for a variety of marketing needs.”
“Braze is a fantastic tool for creating agile marketing campaigns in your apps without necessarily needing dev help.”
“Spacing and font sizes become distorted if you dont work directly within the template guidelines. Connected content is difficult to edit if you don’t have engineering support.”
“The Android SDK sometimes crashes, and they don’t give priority to client problems, there was a time out production product start crashing a lot because of Braze problems.”
“You don’t want too much data or you’ll hit your limits, and you don’t want unneeded anonymous users or you’ll be charged for those.”
“A purely “marketing” team would have a very hard time utilizing this without some support from their developers up front to get the “plumbing” connected properly.”
