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

Even people that are not techy can use it and succeed at whatever they are doing. It's just amazing how the CF's team have accomplish is so little time.
Click Funnels was the first and is probably the best funnel building software option. I'm sure if you're willing to spend the time to build out the perfect funnel, it could be an amazing tool.
Very positive and there is entire community to support a Click funnel user on face book that helps with learinng making good funnels and marketing. Its like finding a family.

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

After 6 weeks it broke again. MOST of my traffic was being re-directed to the 404 error page I lost hundreds of dollars.
I disliked the crappy support, the constant bugs, glitches, disruptions to my business because of their outdated software that they refuse to actually work on.
Something changed though, and now it's probably some of the worst customer support of any software company I work with.

Mailchimp is the leader in email marketing for a reason

Reviewed 2 years ago
Pros

It's easy to learn, it's got a ton of options and it just does the job like it should do. Great delivery also, many templates

Cons

I would love if I could use mailchimp and write my emails inside of clickfunnels with it. But it's too much to ask

Mailchimp

My goto mailing app for the last 3 years

Reviewed 4 months ago

Its been great, can have a lot of clients emails and campagins with no hassle and have even used it as a database with apps like zapier and slack for instant communication.

Pros

It has been evolving continuosly and now with the addition of funnels you can make a great online funnel without the need to pay clickfunnels or other pricey apps. This one does everything and also sends mails :)

Cons

Somehow the pricing has been changed a lot thru the years. I have a plan for the last three years that is quite cheap but doenst have all the features, but if I change it it will double my expense.

ClickFunnels

Clickfunnels allowed me to create sales funnels and email opt in forms for new leads.

Reviewed 4 years ago

This software benefits those looking for a quick way to sell a product. No need to develop a whole website! I also had the benefit of capturing emails and sending the addresses to Mailchimp.

Pros

I like that Clickfunnels streamlines the way to create a salesfunnel. You don't need a fully functional website to sell thousands of dollars of product - all you need is a Clickfunnel!

Cons

The page builder is very basic - but this is a pro and a con. What I mean by that is, the CF interface is lean - but that's the way it should be.

ClickFunnels

Thorough Yet Unavoidably Cookie Cutter

Reviewed 3 years ago
Pros

What I absolutely love about ClickFunnels is just how much can be managed through a single service. The fact that you can have the majority, if not all, of your website on ClickFunnels is outstanding. Then to be able to manage affiliates and leads via the software is a really outstanding concept.

Cons

Despite the promised functionality, Backpack and Actionetics are highly limited. In 2-3 years, the functionality may be unparalleled, but at the moment the little bugs make it an extremely frustrating process. I can't find a good reason to pay the additional money when there are alternatives like Mailchimp for a far better CRM and other decent affiliate solutions out there. Even just the core software alone, the same blocks that create a level of ease in the software also create a cookie cutter page design that's unavoidably obvious to the trained eye that you're using ClickFunnels. Most people end up using either the default font or switching it to Raleway. Either way, it's just not customizable enough to create genuinely unique design.
