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

As a socially responsible company, it feels good to support another company like Salesforce that is committed to these values too.
The cloud based architecture makes it easily accessible and the deployment work like a charm. It very cost effective and intuitive.
It is amazing what you can get and do with the free version of Salesforce. I do fundraising consultant and for small non-profits on a tight budget this is my top recommendation.

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

The only negative aspect I've encountered while utilizing SalesForce is that saving entered data is not done automatically and can lead to losing work.
Terrible experience I wouldn't recommend to even our biggest competitor, Salesforce is totally unintuitive and with very bad UX. Expensive, hard to use and hard to manage.
There are times when the automation fails and gives back inaccurate data. We have to trouble shoot almost weekly to figure out what happened.
