We are a start up company, new to these services. MailChimps blogs and guides were so helpful and extremely comprehensible. I learned how to create a fancy email and code in the necessary features all in a timely fashion! The integrations are seamless as well! Definitely worth the investment.

Mail Chimp is the great tool that I use almost on a daily basis! All of my different lists are there to choose from and the segment from, and the reports are great!

Pros

Easy to use and fully customizable.

Cons

Sometimes sends to my clients 'junk' folders.

Advice to Others

When you are initially sending an email out to your constituents, make sure they allow your mail to come to their inbox. Otherwise, the mail chimp emails will end up in their junk mail.

N/A

We've been able to send out newsletters, announcements, and appeals easily for a couple of years now. Since learning how to design emails, I rarely get frustrated with the process. I'm sure there are features that would benefit us that I haven't explored, but most of what we need is right up front.

Pros

Meshes easily with our customer database, design is easy to learn and use, lots of great tutorial videos.

Cons

Wish there were more flexibility with design (adding text blocks in different places, adding backgrounds after you've placed text blocks). Sometimes I change my mind about how I want something laid out and it's not always easy to change. It would be great if you could edit the photo size in the document.

Advice to Others

For a small organization or company, Mailchimp should really do the trick.

I first used MailChimp in 2011. I used it frequently until 2013 when my company went out of business. Just a few months ago I started using MailChimp again as my employment changed again. I was pleased to discover that during my three-year absence MailChimp has only continued to improve... everything. Templates are better. Tracking is easier. All of it... better.

Start today. You will be glad you did.

N/A

MailChimp is a super hands-off and easy-to-use piece of software for email distribution lists - and honestly, a big part of the appeal is how clean, uncluttered, and friendly the UI is. It just feels forgiving, like if you messed up a setting or an option you'd have a chance to go back and correct it before it was too late - and that you'd actually be *able* to find that setting on your own!

Pros

Clean, friendly UI that feels forgiving of mistakes and exploration.

Cons

I wish they'd condense their emailed receipts down to a single page!

I've been using MailChimp for years, and although I generally like the product, I've encountered roadblocks along the way. It's a system that's great for general lists that don't require a lot of segmentation as well as simple emails.

Pros

There is a lot of great reporting even with the free product.

Cons

Managing the lists can be cumbersome, especially when using the group or segmentation features.

The best email marketing campaign manager. Drag and drop elements to create a custom email or use a pre-generated template. Very easy to use. Triggers are all very easy to set up and integrates with most of the other programs we use.

Likes Least

Very harsh with the rules on building lists. We have a lot of client info obtained through mostly manual processes so no 2 step verification. Very hard to import clients and get our list built up without triggering an our account to be reviewed.

Recommendations

Extremely easy to use and a lot of help instructions. Integrates with a lot of management programs making it easy to share common info across all programs.

MailChimp is very easy to use, and it's super simple to start email marketing campaigns. The integrations with other software such as Bigcommerce are very nice since you can set it up to automatically add customers or newsletter subscribers to your MailChimp contact lists. The help articles are great, and their free plan is awesome for small businesses.

Likes Least

I wish the software would not add the MailChimp logo to the bottom of emails that are sent out on the free plan, but it is completely understandable from their perspective.

Recommendations

Take advantage of the free plan to try out the software and make sure it works for you, and then just stay on it if your company is small enough and you don't need advanced features.
