    Because we have a large user base, sendinblue is one of our only cost-efficient options. It's good for now but they have a few things to improve on.

    Pros

    Overall the sendinblue features are good for sending basic emails and updates to users

    Cons

    There are a few bugs when it comes to the designing letter part and sometimes you have to put your screen in full screen mode in order to access all of the icons.

    Maybe, it has great features and functionalities, but they need to make things user friendly.

    Pros

    When we first came to know about Sendinblue, we had big expectations. Features like 300 free emails per day together with all the great functionalities including automation, integration with one's website/blog are there. For those interested in affiliate marketing, they are running an affiliate program on cj.com as well through their own portal. The one running on their portal has multi-level marketing feature meaning you are incentivized for referring more affiliates.

    Cons

    After spending an hour or so, we soon realized that it is not that user-friendly or easy to use. Despite confirming email, getting the message: "Your account has not been validated yet. You are only a few steps away from sending your campaigns." Fail to understand the relationship between importing all of contacts, completing profile, creating and scheduling newsletter with validation.

    More coverage for my monthly output as a musician.

    Pros

    It's very no-nonsense and you have a clear overview of all your stats, emails and contacts. Even for a dyslexic person it's a great tool to write newsletters!

    Cons

    The 300 emails per day limit, but I prefer that over a contact list limit like with mailchimp or others. This way I can build up an unlimited list, and pay if I need to.

    You have to wait to be verified before you can create multiple campaigns, but I guess that's understandable

    Pros

    Easy to use and flexible plus good reporting and feedback. Whilst the software meets our needs it has been the customer service that has really impressed me. I am sure there may be other features that we have not found yet that we will use in the future.

    Cons

    There is nothing that we have found that we do not like about the software. having said that, we would like it to be more flexible when it comes to suspending the account due to results outwit the standard metrics. We only send e-mails infrequently so sometimes our data sets get out-of-date.

    As my email list was getting larger, I needed a FREE alternative to MailChimp - SendinBlue was the only option that let me have an unlimited list but limit my emails sent - perfect for my newsletter.

    Pros

    The unlimited number of email addresses. I need to keep a large list but send newsletters in small batches, this is a perfect free alternative for me to do that.

    Cons

    Looking to upscale is a big leap, but I supposed credits could work, need an 'almost-free' (super low cost) option.

    Cons

    Nothing. There are no features that don't add value. If I had to choose something I didn't like it would be that I feel the design could be slicker

    Pros

    We needed a tool for one of our company's first mass email campaigns and SendinBlue made everything so easy. Building email templates is quick and easy, and so is uploading contact lists. Their customer support team is also amazing!

    Cons

    The only thing to be aware of is that your first campaign takes longer to send since SendinBlue tests a percentage of your email list for quality. This didn't cause us any problems, but make sure you send early if you have a tight deadline.

    Pros

    SendinBlue is a nice tool for marketing automation, which is also available in several languages and covers most of the features you would expect from such a tool. In addition to that, it is also completely free of charge and makes email marketing a lot easier. I have been using it, after I had some issues with MailChimp and I was really surprised. These days, there are not a lot free tools around and this one is really great.

    Another good thing, worth to mention, is the excellent customer support. Their service staff does really everything, to please you and to help you with any questions or issues, you might have.

    Cons

    SendinBlue in its free version lacks some important features. For example, there is no social media support, unless you get one of the paid plans. For bigger businesses, the free plan with its limited email support might also be an issue. In addition, there is no plan, that offers unlimited emails.

    Easy to use and setup great looking emails. The statistics on open and click rates are great to have as well.

    Pros

    The emails look great coming out of the system and the template builder was intuitive and easy to use.

    Cons

    It took a few tries to get the API up and working and the issues we did have was by trying to be overly complicated with the templates we were setting up initially. Once they had been setup, everything has been working out great!

    Their prices are competitive, compared to others.
    It is easy to create a nice newsletter using drag and drop

    Cons

    It is when you have paid your formula and when you try to program your campaign that something goes wrong. Only 500 emails sent over 17000. And the account suspended, and the only solution (and not guaranteed) is to pay for a dedicated IP.

    Hello Aurore and thank you for sharing your experience while using our platform. The analyses you're referring to studies the behavior of contacts to determine the kinds of metrics they produce. Unfortunately, when this analysis suspends an account it means the account didn't meet our minimum opt-in requirements. As this is harmful to our sender reputation and can negatively impact our other users, accounts that do not pass this analysis aren't allowed to stay on our shared IP range. We extend accounts the option to send from a dedicated IP which removes the account from our shared IP range as an alternative to removing the account entirely. We'd love to work with your account to see if there's any adjustments that can be made that still fits your needs. Please reach out to us at contact@sendinblue.com and include 'ATTN: Mari' if you'd like to continue discussing this. Mari US Outreach Specialist SendinBlue Customer Care

    Sendinblue has been a nice e-mail marketing tool for a small business as ours. We found the support team to be very responsive, and we love how you can optimize e-mails for mobile devices. Sendinblue also offers great reporting and analytics.
    This program is great as it also allows you to reach customers by text in addition to e-mails.

    Cons

    The provided templates are not as eye catching as we would like. Also, we have found that the setup of each e-mail is a bit tedious at times.
