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.

DW

Daniel W.

Mailchimp is very great software. I like how it's easy to interface, and how you can clean the data.

MS

Mohamad S.

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.

MD

Melissa D.

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.

VW

Virginia W.

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.

KL

Karif L.

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.

MR

Martha R.

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.

RI

RABEE I.

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.

AM

Antonio M.

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.

NW

Nathan W.

Cons

There is no alert given if there is a problem on a background check. There is no way to indicate family relationships such as grandmother, siblings, nieces, nephew, etc.

PR

Pam R.

We've had several instances where when problems arose, customer service reps were just as perplexed with the issue.

BS

Brittni S.

No back arrow to look at the previous transaction entered. If you are entering a list of manual checks and need to add a vendor all of the previous info entered (date, check number etc) is lost.

Great product for reaching past and present customers

Reviewed 2 years ago

Have been able to in crease my membership numbers and retain members longer

Pros

I am very small so ease of use is very important. I do not have a full-time test team. Has made it possible for me to stay in touch with existing customers and to attract new ones.

Cons

I have not used a lot of other contact software so I don't have a lot to compare it to. Potentially could use more available trainingPotentially could use more available training

Mailchimp- The email marketing beast

Reviewed 10 months ago

I am personally very happy with Mailchimp. I like its self email template creating feature. I have gain 462 subscribers through Mailchimp.

Pros

I am a blogger, who learns everything self. When I know about digital marketing, I also know about Mailchimp from a youtube channel. I heard about others like Mailchimp, but I chose Mailchimp for its easy uses and simple interface. I will recommend everyone to use Mailchimp as an email marketing software. As an individual, you can use its free service which is really effective. If your small growing business or blog needs email marketing then without hesitation go for its service. So let's start your email marketing through Mailchimp using its professional templates.

Cons

Mailchimp authority right to suspend a Mailchimp account. Membership-based sites faced problems sometimes.

Mailchimp is a great service with a lot of functionality

Reviewed 4 years ago

We use this as our primary way of communicating and engaging with our membership .

Pros

There are many API options that allows you to integrate the Mailchimp service with your own platform or store. The Automation options is also very powerful, which we use a lot to keep engaging with our mailing list,

Cons

The web based service is good - however, the mobile version is very slow and is always giving connection error messages. If you are able to access the mobile version, it is a very robust tool that allows you to make and send emails right from the app. Though the inconsistency with the iOS version is the downfall

I highly recommend Mailchimp

Reviewed 2 years ago

Mailchimp has helped us reach our whole membership with custom, well designed emails. It has allowed us to keep our membership informed as things quickly evolve and has done so with ease so that we have more time to focus on other important things.

Pros

Mailchimp has a clean, fairly intuitive interface and has a very good A/B split testing support for broadcast emails. It also has well designed email templates and solid reporting.

Cons

We get a lot of emails that bounce back so that has been something we have been trying to navigate through.
