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

The overall experience with SendPulse was very nice. It is responsible for delivering grand communication and yielding excellent results.
It is super-easy to use, the customer support is fast and great, the software is very affordable. They also add new features always and help educational events, which is very nice.
Its simple user interface and great deliverability makes it one of the best email marketing tool of this industry. It is also well integrated with SMS service which is a great tool for me.

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

She said they would not respond to the scammer, even though they have their email. I fault the company for having no protocol for fraud.
They take your money and if your campaign has more than 10 bounced emails, they block your account and refuse to give you any customer service. The entire thing is a sham.
There was a bit of a learning curve for the first email, the inability to create an email campaign from the app.

SendPulse

One-stop shop for all your digital marketing needs

Reviewed 4 years ago

Sendpulse offers many features that would meet most of your business needs, and once you get started with the software, it's hard or unecessary to look elsewhere. It offers features like Automation360 which, as the name suggests, automates many actions on your behalf. The API integration feature is a nice one to have, as I don't want to manually import my thousands of emails from old services.

Pros

Easy to get started with, and to use in general. Clean, intuitive user interface You can import your mailing list from similar services like MailChimp and GetResponse. Lots of features, even in the free plans. Totally worth the money for the paid plans.

Cons

Not much to say about here, but the API integration and overall experience could still be better.

Webpush + Email. Here's why we use SendPulse

Reviewed 6 years ago

We started using SendPulse for our software company StaffCop to deliver webpush notifications to get better onboarding. Got incredible 45% CTR and 10% increase in the entire onboarding process. Two months later we decided to switch from MailChimp to SendPulse to create more intelligent email+webpush transactional platform

Pros

A one platform for email, webpush and text

Cons

can not recall quickly

Good but API is hard work

Reviewed 6 years ago

So – I am going to caveat this whole thing with – if you’re not interested in using the API or you are not coming from another service with an existing API integration, this probably won’t apply to you. Summary: 2 different API’s, both awfully designed, both poorly documented, both with completely different authentication methods, credentials etc. however, the application itself is great, so if...

Pros

Price Web Interface Email Builder

Cons

API Can't use Email Builder emails in the SMTP email interface
