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.
Mailchimp is very great software. I like how it's easy to interface, and how you can clean the data.
I like how Mailchimp keeps track of my audience and helps me categorize them for different types of emails. I also like being able to create appealing and interactive emails for my viewers.

Pros

I have great experience with that solution, I recommended to use this solution it's totally secure and free of cost.
Excellent overall, keeps me organized, and the ability to make folders for emails is great for organizing business records.
The ease of switching between screens and the auto save feature is a life saver. Gmail's ease of use is wonderful for all.

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.
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.
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.

Cons

There is also no customer support for Gmail so if you have an error or problem you are on your own which can be frustrating at times.
Can easily be hacked if your phone or laptop is lost. Hard to recover if forgot password.
I dislike the way it filters emails into spam sometimes. I have to monitor spam every so often to make sure I didn't miss any important emails.

The Best for Our Newsletters

Reviewed 7 years ago
Pros

Its very easy to use. I love the preset templates and all the tips theoughout the creation process. My favorite is the extra assistance with Subject lines to help ensure your letters get opened and not sent to Spam.

Cons

My own newsletter emails auto filter into my Promotions tab at gmail so I'm sure we lose clicks with other gmail accountholders too.

Well pleased with mailchimp

Reviewed 6 years ago

My overall experience with mailchimp was pretty good I like it better that outlook and gmail, and prefer it to gmail.

Pros

What I liked the most about mailchimp was that emails outgoing hit my employees inbox almost instantly. Mail chimps' servers must be turbo charged.

Cons

I don't really have any cons about this service.

Great and Affordable Solution to Mass Emailing

Reviewed 5 years ago

Mass emailings that Gmail can't handle.

Pros

I am able to email members of our congregation with an appealing, professional email design using my colors, graphics and content without a costly subscription. I am able to view analytics on bounced addresses, those wishing to discontinue receiving emails and how many times the email was opened. Very helpful!

Cons

I use this software for free. Therefor I am comfortable with the shortcomings of the program as those are available in the paid version. I can live with MailChimp branding in the few emails I send each year.

Overall I love Mailchimp because it's a great solution for my clients who want email marketing and need a simple solution for their businesses.

Pros

I like that I can create newsletters easily and integrate it with my WordPress sites. I also like that I can get started for free.

Cons

Sometimes I can't use Gmail accounts with Mailchimp. Using a Gmail account causes a delay in sending the campaigns or it goes directly to spam

I definitely would use Mailchimp with other email services besides Gmail.

Pros

Mailchimp is easy to use and you can integrate it with your email but Gmail will block it from working because they want you to use their Gmass service. Mailchimp I feel works better.

Cons

I did not use it long enough to find any fault to it except that I couldnt actually get the most out of it because gmail blocked it from working properly

Great Product for Mass Emails and Communication

Reviewed 4 years ago

We have used Mailchimp for years, now, to help manage our mass communication (emails) to our adjunct faculty. We have approximately 200 part-time instructors who teach in accelerated, weekly (and online) classes. Trying to manage communication and compliance with that many contingent faculty members is a challenge. We use Mailchimp to help. What I like so much about this tech product is that the emails sent look like they come from the email service as opposed to a mass-generated system. I highly recommend Mailchimp.

Pros

When faculty get emails from us, the correspondence looks like it comes from the university's Gmail account.

Cons

Like any product, there is a little bit of a learning curve, but nothing that would keep me from recommending it.

Mailchimp

Great way to track email

Reviewed 6 years ago
Pros

This was a free add on into gmail. It's easy to use and to keep track of who has received and opened emails.

Cons

Like all free versions, there's the ad on the email. It doesn't sync with outlook so can only be used in gmail online.

Using Gmail as an Main emailing source.

Reviewed 3 years ago

Overall my experience using Gmail has been spectacular. The only issues were the ones stated above. I believe it is one of the more high-end email services you can use =.

Pros

Easy setup to almost any device Auto safe passwords and no issues backing up data Compatibility for other products such as "MailChimp" is done with ease Interface user friendly

Cons

Could have more options in regards to groups and editing tools for business Updates more regularly Customer Service could be a little better in response time and problem resolvement

Google softwares' are mostly the best including Gmail

Reviewed 3 years ago

I could mange my 12 email accounts in one simple app, and my experience since I started using Gmail is wonderful.

Pros

I have the ability to manage unlimited Gmail accounts at a time, and they also grant users the ability to send 500 to 2,000 emails per day, all for free at no charge.

Cons

I do not recommend Gmail for email marketers who have big email lists, you can go ahead and utilize other email marketing tools like Amazon SES, Mailchimp, AB Bulk Mailer or GetResponse.

My overall experience is great. I'm not interested in using other email providers at this time.

Pros

- Search feature allows me to search my email from long ago - Allows me to hyperlink text - Allows me to embed images - Allows me to add files from my Google Drive without having to first download the file to my device or computer then uploading it - It allows me to set up an automatic reply email when the email account receives the email - It groups my email to: Primary, Promotions, Social and Forums -...

Cons

- I cannot schedule an email unless I install a plugin - On my Android Gmail app, I wish the app would ask me where do I want to save the file I am trying to download from an email - It doesn't tell me who has opened my email like with MailChimp - I cannot create an email template - the Ads
