MailChimp was founded in 2001 as a side project and has grown into an industry giant offering a complete suite of tool designed to help anyone create stunning and dynamic email marketing campaigns with fully trackable features at prices which are not only competitive, but beat the competition in most cases.
MailChimp offers many options for their users and includes a comprehensive on-site Knowledge-Base with articles and tutorials on each of MailChimp's features. Short videos are included in the tutorials for those who want a more visual approach. MailChimp has a good pricing structure and is very transparent in what their plans include as far as features and the limits of subscribers, emails, etc. There are a few holes in the coverage which could not be found online, nor by contacting customer service. With the Forever Free plan, many small businesses can access tools which are easy to use and available only for a monthly subscription elsewhere.
MailChimp offers both a free trial of and a 30-day money back guarantee for its services. Users will also be treated to an unlimited image hosting capacity, meaning they can upload as many of their own images as they desire.
As mentioned above, our review team found that nearly every question which they had was easily answered by website research. The customer service interactions and requests for more information were lacking with agents that gave nebulous answers or did not respond at all (email requests for information went unanswered for 3+ days).
In addition to the lack of phone support, MailChimp offers no mobile-friendly email templates. For a company that has been in business since 2000, one would think MailChimp would be aware of these issues and work hard to resolve them.
I've come to love MailChimp. The drag and drop options make everything so easy to build and customize beautiful looking emails and newsletters.
It was a good experience with their product and they handle many or the details especially with social. The price was a little high but overall worth the effort.
Used MailChimp for work and were really happy with the service. I can't comment on cost, as that was never visible to me, but platform was easy to use for creating mail lists.
I have used the free version and turns out it was better than our paid subscription of Constant Contact. I'm sure the paid version has more features, however satisfied with the response, click and opening rate on the emails sent.
Fantastic free application for small businesses and nonprofits.
The most difficult thing for me has been the format of MailChimp's emails. I do not know why it is different, but it is not visually appealing.
MailChimp is a great way to send mass emails for a business. They have an easy-to-use process that makes sending emails a breeze.
I have tried using Mail Chimp for about 3 years- each time without success. Their system is complicated to use and unintuitive. Often the emails are sent directly to Spam and are never receiving. I would NOT recommend using their services.
MailChimp's robust marketing automation makes sure your emails get to the right people at the right time. Target customers based on behavior, preferences, and previous sales. And when you're finished, get in-depth reporting insights to make every automated series you send better than the last. By-Hecmo.com
