Pros

They do a great job of educating marketers about how to ensure your campaigns are successful not just in the short run, but also overall, over many, many mailings and contacts.
Mailchimp helps me fulfill this, I love it's simplicity and easy to use software more than any others I have used.
I love the interface - once I got to know what was possible it became very easy to create what I wanted. I feel like it makes a big difference in how we're perceived by our community.

Pros

The support has always been outstanding -- every individual I've worked with is friendly and super helpful. And the crowdsourced support (online) gets good answers to your questions too.
This is still a good software for the church wanting to connect with its members more frequently. We love the ability to track leadership encounters with our membership.
We previously used Shelby V. Both products have a great deal of advantages in our congregational needs. ShelbyNext seems to be more user friendly that Shelby V.

Cons

It lack direct and urgent support in times of desperate need of it, and the some features aren't so flexible, I can say its not so much up to par with industry standard.
The problem I ran into with mailchimp is that it struggled to sync with a wix site created for a client. Upfront, it worked well but then seemed to stop working.
Their modular template builder is the worst builder I've used ever. It's so bad that I rather just code the whole template.

Cons

I may be wrong but I'm hesitant about putting in any visitor records because I know we have limited names we can store in ShelbyNext without being charged extra.
So the only way to separate them is to set up a group which means more time. You can't just delete them because when you do all their information is lost.
But consistent problems along the way and a frustrating experience with customer service has us considering making a switch.

ShelbyNext Membership

Easy to keep track of people

Reviewed 2 years ago

I think that Shelby Next has helped to solve people from "falling through the cracks." I am thankful for any tool that helps us reach our community more effectively.

Pros

It's so simple to keep track of visitors, schedule visits with other staff members and follow up with people in the church.

Cons

I think it would be nice to be able to connect the service more with things like MailChimp, to not only sync emails, but also set up automated emails and tasks for first-time guests.
