    Pros

    This platform works alright for the basic email campaigns, but it's kinda pricey. I prefer MailChimp, where there are a lot more up to date templates and more advanced features available

    Cons

    It's just not as advanced as some other platforms which are actually less expensive. I recommend trying out a few other campaign softwares before settling on one.

    Campaign Monitor is a really great app, it does everything it promises and has a ton of variety in layout for emails, buttons, links and everything you would need to make a great campaign email! It organizes our lists very well and is definitely one of the better solutions out there!

    Cons

    The thing I would like to see improved is the interface. It is a bit difficult to understand and really not very intuitive. Once you have a grasp on it though, you can manage!

    This product does allow you to monitor and track about any campaign you can put together. It is quite good at avoiding SPAM.

    Cons

    It does take quite a bit of learning to setup and work with this software. Once you understand it, it works well.

    Pros

    Campaign Monitor is an email building and sending a program, with a built-in theme builder that is easier to use then Mailchimp. It's also cheaper.

    Cons

    No real cons to the software. It's not as roubust as systems like Active Campaign that include a CRM in the pricier options.

    Campaign monitor is great for small business' who are not much on the technical side, it's easy to use and easy to explain to your clients. It also has high deliverability and excellent compatibility with mobile and computer. The pricing also differs which is great if you have a range of clients from small to medium to large business'.

    Pros

    Campaign monitor is clean and modern and because of it's designed, it's very easy to use and understand. You also have a range of templates to choose from. This is best if you are not very technical and find it easy to use a drop and drag function.

    They also give you access to your statistics and you can export your database if you need to upload it to another service.

    They also continuously grow their services and have now added automation, insights and transactional emails.

    You can also design your own email using code and upload the code as a template to Campaign Monitor

    Cons

    You pay for everytime you send out a batch of emails where some email marketing services are free.

    The customer service takes a while to get back to you.

    Sometimes the code you upload won't look as good when its embed into Campaign monitor, Sometimes the functionality of the code goes off.

    The email campiagn you send out can look better on chrome than safari

    Good tool to use for newsletters. Fine free version and good basic model in the paid version as well. But seems like some of the things like sending out e-mails at a certain time in different geographies should be a part of the paid plan in the basic version.

    Pros

    We have used Campaign Monitor for some time now, and it works well. There is a good overview of the different campaigns you have sent, while there's also possibility for split testing. Does the job on a regular basis.

    Cons

    Sometimes the interface is not that intuitive. Especially when it comes to understanding the difference between transactional and automatic e-mails.

    Pros

    - I found it very easy to use and learn
    - We have relatively basic requirements (just send regular email campaigns) and it's perfect for that.

    Cons

    It would be great if we could save out brand colours somewhere so we could be sure that everyone follows the guidelines.
    I would like to have more flexibility in the email editor (e.g. switch between 1 and two columns in the same block). But I understand how that's really tricky to do with this builders so it might be asking for too much.

    This site requires several steps from start to finish. Staff or individuals can learn maybe after one walk/demo through.

    If you are a few mailings a month to a few lists or segments of contacts, then this should work fine for you. If you have thousands of contacts that you need to reach in marketing campaigns several times a week with contact options to opt out of one or more segments while still being a part of the master list, look elsewhere.

    Pros

    Some pros for this app are the price point, campaign statistics reporting and integration with Salesforce.

    Cons

    This app appears to be geared towards smaller organizations that do not have a technical staff on board to manage the marketing. It has been so watered down to be user friendly that it not very robust or customizable. It does have a Salesforce connector to track some campaign data in Salesforce. The volume of data that often gets tracked, while important to companies, eats up Salesforce data storage very quickly. If you are not careful with how you manage lists and segments, costs can quickly creep up and become overwhelming.

    Not much. Just gets simple tasks done.

    Pros

    That it at least has an API through which you could sync lists from your own database or external source

    Cons

    No way to edit html. Confusing UX for simple tasks. Using advanced segmentation is a pain. Due to recent changes, can't see how personalization tags work in test emails. No native support for simple survey emails.

    It's pretty easy to use but a bit lackluster in features. We ended up switching to a different tool because of these limitations.

    Was easy to get started with but had a hard time growing with our needs as our company grew. We ended up switching platforms.

    Pros

    Campaign Monitor is a full-featured, high-quality email marketing tool. My business has found success using this tool for both internal and external audiences. I find the greatest value in the analytics features of the tool. This helps my marketing team use data to plan directed communications to employees and customers.

    Cons

    The customer service is non-transparent. Campaign Monitor makes many attempts to defer your help requests through pages of FAQs and making it difficult to find their email contact form. It looks like they have a call-in line for premium pay customers, however I did not have any issues I needed to contact them for while I had the premium account.

    Campaign Monitor is great for creating e-mail marketing campaigns, but the ability to test and preview and the documentation for best practices is what I like the most about this service.

    Cons

    I really like this service, but they could offer a free plan like MailChimp does (which is pretty robust in fact).

    Campaign Monitor is one of those annoying software platforms you would much rather not have to use...but you end up feeling compelled to use due to the features and the fact some clients have used it before

    The email builder leaves a LOT to be desired as does their hopeless customer service - they really don't seem to care

    My company is able to add additional SaaS revenue with little effort. This is a huge benefit in adding money to our bottom line.

    Pros

    I love that this is a top quality newsletter software product that my company can generate revenue with. It is one of the best out there so to add an opportunity to resell and integrate with our existing business is amazing. Has all the great features you would want and even as a reseller do the billing.

    Just one of the best white label software I've ever used and fully customizable. Love each month getting a check and not really needing to do anything but add clients to it.

    Cons

    There is nothing to not like. My only ask would be to allow resellers to make way more margins off of the product.

    Pros

    It's pricing is really reasonable. Since I had to juggle around a couple of mailing systems during last years, I was able to get an overview and compare it with competitors. At CampaignMonitor you really get your value in money even if it's simple solution.

    Cons

    It does not give you a lot of options to play with - so if you want to add some conditions etc you'll find yourself looking for other solution. Reporting CM providers is too simple and send over as graphic image with not many options to narrow it down.
