Pros

I've had a very positive experience. The help desk was able to respond to some of my questions pretty quickly, I like the functionality and my emails look good.

DW

Daniel W.

Its broad feature set and ease of use are an amazing help to a new company just getting started. If you're not looking for custom integration or transactional emails, this product is one of the best.

JW

Jonathan W.

It has been a good experience, would recommend specially if you are just starting creating your newsletters and want to practice before spending a significant amount of money on this type of software.

From logos to infographics, Ai has been the best tool for the job. I create assets for my websites that I manage and can export my design projects in the best formats for the job.

There is endless posibilities of creative creating of scaleable vector graphics. Perfect for logos and helps me save money by using it to collaborating with graphic teams.

Cons

Mailchimp is used by many which means that spam filters are more likely to tag your emails as spam. I did not have any other problems with Mailchimp.

AM

Antonio M.

Very confusing, very difficult to figure out where to click , also when you input a wrong email address it blocks your whole process of sending emails to others.

MS

Mary S.

For a company that's been around as long as Mailchimp has, it's crazy to me how bad the UX/UI is. It's just hard to use so much of the time.

NW

Nathan W.

Cons

The bummer about Adobe is that you can no longer purchase the software as a one-off. Now it’s a subscription that you have to pay monthly or yearly and the fees are quite hefty.

AH

Abigail H.

I think most of the frustration comes with user error and not doing enough research on the current subject.

MA

Megan A.

On rare occasions, the app will stall or close down altogether. This could be a flaw with either the application itself or the system I'm using it on.

Mailchimp

Very Flexible and Creative Platform

Reviewed 2 years ago

Overall, it's very flexible and user friendly. As a Graphic Designer, it seems a bit easier when you have experience but also easy enough for anyone to pick up quickly.

Pros

My favorite part of this software is the ability to schedule emails. Occasionally we have emails that have to go to different groups at different times so replicating and scheduling takes out the hassle of "remembering" to send them out.

Cons

The built in text editing. Although there are great fonts to use, it is daunting to format. I've moved to designing text blocks in Adobe Illustrator to keep with my branding.

Mailchimp - the Perfect Assistant

Reviewed 3 years ago

Group communications, subscriber management, unsubscribe facility, marketing reports, easy follow-up.

Pros

Mailchimp makes newsletters and organizational communications very easy. I have two separate organizations for whom I send monthly communications. Mailchimp allows the creation and maintenance of subscriber lists, including segmentation and grouping for more appropriately targetted interaction. Mailchimp's templates are easy to reconfigure. Favorite templates can be modified, saved and used many times. Completion and sending are very easy. Afterward, the ability to send follow ups, to view who responded, and to keep tabs without a ton of effort - these are all big reasons why I like Mailchimp.

Cons

Sometimes Mailchimp is difficult to fit everything into a template. If you are looking for Adobe Illustrator - Mailchimp will disappoint. If you have your own graphics shop and a marketing staff just waiting to do your work - then you don't need Mailchimp. But if you are the rest of us, these little challenges are easily accepted and easily overcome.
