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

The support forums are a fantastic resource as well. There are quite a few people who generously offer their time to help each other.
Very efficient, easy to use, easy accounting and great support. Perfect for domains and hosting.
It is great that you can resell tons of different servers all from one WHMCS platform, although they definitely do have their favourites.

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

Software's become so bloated less tech savvy customers have a hard time using it. Invoicing system is terrible and requires research to even see what you're paying for.
Very bad customer support - 13 days wasted - 2 months management team don't reply.
We will be moving to another platform that has the same features and costs much less. This company lost its way after it was bought.
