CarolynAnn Mohr

Don't ever register for their webinars!

2018-07-13

MailChimp has superior open/ click analytics and easier and more flexible settings to create marketing emails.

Pros

Ability to manage many events at one time. Ease of sending, reminding and reconciling emails. ....

Cons

If you register for a webinar, be prepared to be inundated with emails! I block one and receive another. Immediately after sending feedback about this, i was hit with 3 emails in a row! Leaves a very bad taste and i won't be recommending anymore. Very difficult to set-up and navigate. Not for anyone who won't use regularly.

Recommendations to others considering Wild Apricot

Take the time to migrate from whatever systems you are currently using. It might take a little time, but it is worth it.

Art group using Wild Apricot

2017-01-10

We switched to Wild Apricot about a year ago. It has made updating our website so much easier and keeping the membership updated is effortless. We have used it to set up registration for events, and those have gone smoothly, with much less work on our part.

Pros

Many functions run automatically

Cons

We have recently started using it for our newsletter, and it doesn't seem as easy to design as in MailChimp.

Make life easier for your volunteers

2019-01-09

We centralized everything, gone are excel, mailchimp, calendar, printed newsletter and the subsequent coordination and updating of the different systems.

Pros

The software encompasses everything a small sports organization needs: -website creation - membership database and dues,: all dues related correspondence - events: setup, related communications and attendance control, - finance application - a store application for gear - posts about past events

Cons

With the software being so flexible, it also has a lot of options and controls, which makes it difficult to train our event leaders to use the site. But we would not want to miss the flexibility, so the training just takes time.
