Pros

This software is great for social media, has advanced features with it and allows you to have a free trial with it. The email campaign is very straight forward and easy to use.
Mailchimp is the best, I have learned about their features, and they are perfect especially for a beginning business or business with a small following. They make it really easy for you to use.
The greatest benefit to using this program is the integration possibilities. It is compatible with a lot of the other software/programs we use so integration was seamless and saved time & money.

Pros

It has many great features that streamline communication with trades and help them to get paid on time. It’s a great way to organize multiple projects at a time.
Their customer service is unmatched in how responsive, friendly and helpful they are with questions or technical issues.
What I like most about BuilderTrend is it's ease of use, the customization ability of the software, and the ease of edit/revision.

Cons

I have had instances where the emails sometimes end up in the spam folder or promotions folder, which can be annoying and needs to be figured out.
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.
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.

Cons

Unable to autosave to-do's or the daily log is obnoxious. If you accidentally close out the program you lose all data.
This isnt to blame on buildertrend its just we struggle to get our sub contractors to cooperate using our online services.
Our trades hate it because it is hard to use on their phones.
