It does the job but lacks more advanced platform testing and analytics functionality.

2018-04-16

No interruption in service when Campaigner acquired our previous platform which we still prefer.

Pros

Scheduling and the ability to send rudimentary test emails is useable and useful.

Cons

The lack of robust A-B and other standard testing schemes is also disappointing.

My clients use this product to manage their mass marketing email campaigns.

2018-05-08

As a consultant I don't get the direct benifits, but of my clients, more then half use campaigner on its own, and about another quarter use campaigner to compliment another emailing system.

Pros

There is a lot of customization about when and how emails are sent out. A/B Testing, Segmentation, long term (widely spaced out) campaigns,.

Cons

It would be nice to have more customization for the dashboards, Knowledge of HTML can be limiter (not for me, but that's why I got hired so maybe this is a pro :P), occasionally can be less responsive during peak hours / days.

2017-07-18

The ability to offer a newsletter solution to our clients.

Pros

The depth of Campaigner is very nice.

Cons

I know that's only for backend users eyes, but there could be some updates to intuitive features, like drag and drop email builds.

Overall a good experience with our email marketing.

2017-09-13

It's a great value and it serves it's purpose.

Pros

For the most part, the program is easy to use, good support (they usually get back to me within 24 hours), definitely a great value.

Cons

Would like to see more features, spam check, more platform/device displays, more design options and templates, easier to use automations, quicker list export and multiple campaign comparisons and better contact access from the reporting

Campaigner is invaluable in regularly reaching out to my customers and prospects.

2017-12-21

See review...

Pros

In addition, the flexible monthly billing cycle allows me to align my marketing costs with the revenue generating activities that Campaigner aids us in driving.

Cons

I wish the Smart Email Builder's canned templates looked more like what is possible if you happen to be an HTML master.

Much to be desired

2018-09-10

We understand Campainer is not just an email program, but they don't seem very interested in our suggestions along the way. It's disappointing that in all these years, there hasn't been any kind of redesign for ease of use. At what we are being charged monthly; we are likely going to shop around and see if there is something better matched for our needs, and priced more competitively.

Pros

We don't use it for marketing campaigns, so therefore do not have the need for some of the functionality available with Campaigner. For our needs it works.

Cons

Making a template should be a lot easier than it is: Creating and editing templates has a lot of old graphic (frames?)

Best semi-automatic email software

2017-12-18

Pros

The interface is easy to use and easy to navigate. Imports are the easiest of any software I have ever used including some higher end software.

Cons

The one thing I would say that is a con is building campaigns is not as easy as some programs.

Uploading customers list and updating database is easy. Getting customer service thru the Chat was easy too and they are always helpful.

Pros

Allows you to do everything at once, email blast and posting in social media channels.

Cons

It is not great when it comes to the edition of content. It doesn't provide too many options to edit and create.

Campaigner is quick and easy to use, however there are some kinks.

2018-03-15

Pros

Ease of use, easy interface to work with, like the social media tracking features, like that it's web based.

Cons

Only works well with certain web browsers or else you risk it not saving things, sometimes even though spacing looks one way in the design view, and you email it to yourself, you discover random spaces that were not seen in the preview.
