My nonprofit was previously using Constant Contact for our email marketing before switching to MailChimp. We were paying $35/month and had between 1,000 and 2,000 subscribers. After a couple people mentioned that MailChimp was free at that list size, we looked into it and switched over. As the primary user of these services, I have to say that MailChimp is much more intuitive and user-friendly than Constant Contact. There always seemed to be functions of email customization that just didn't work as they were supposed to in Constant Contact, and it would drive me crazy. Otherwise, the two services seem pretty similar.
It was very easy to add subscribers to a certain list or add tags to them.
There was a disturbing limit on the number of images you could have in your "library" for use. We were paying $35/month, which meant a limit of 5 images that could be stored. MailChimp probably has a limit for free accounts, but we haven't reached it yet and definitely have more than 100 images. There is also an image editing tool in MailChimp that Constant Contact did not have so that you can crop, brighten, or add text to your images within the software. It's very convenient.
Time used: 6-12 months

Recommendations to others considering Constant Contact
Definitely don't go this route if you're a small organization and have less than 2,000 subscribers. I vote for MailChimp, hands-down.
I have had great success with Constant Contact and would recommend it to all small businesses. I like the stock photo option.
The good: easy sync with other software for email addresses. Easy for clients to unsubscribe. Gives you quick stats. Easy formats. The bad: difficult to create emails. I get frustrated with the program when trying to do simple things like change spacing or font size.
I use Constant Contact to send weekly emails, and they have not let me down. Emails are sent on schedule, have a great overall appearance, and I get great engagement statistics. Some features are a little less intuitive than other sites, and formatting can be a little challenging. I've noticed that my "mobile-friendly" emails don't always look great on my android device.
We use this software all of the time to send out e-blasts. It's really easy, comes with lots of great templates and really nice reporting. You can easily copy templates and send out emails in minutes.
I have seen the click rates of email communications decrease over the last decade, as people are not as tied to their "inbox" as much these days, but rather, are more into their phones and social media. The software is easy to use and the tools to manage email client lists are great. However, I think it is a great too for creating email communications.
I feel that there should be more options for graphic placement and integration. Having a blank white space that you can drag and drop items would be easier to use.
Constant Contact is a solid email marketing platform. It's cost-effective and easy to use with a bunch of great features.
Quick and responsive assistance both online and phone support.
We use constant contact for sending out mass emails to our clients. We are a snow removal contractor and use it to send out weather and service updates. Easy to use.
