 Switched from Mailchimp to Mailerlite

We switched to Mailerlite from Mailchimp mainly because of price. We know pay just 50% of what we paid before. It doesn't consists of so many features and templates as Mailchimp does, but we don't need them.

 My Horrifying experience with MailerLite

You would loose your money. They blame you for their failure to just charge your credit card for no service. Their system can't deliver and then they blame you. read other reviews all over web. Many people have complained about their delivery rate. You would loose your mailing list to them. My ...

Great Mailing System - Highly Recommend

22/03/2017

Mailerlite was my first choice originally because they have a free limit. Most other services require monthly payments right from the start, so my expectations were low. However, I've been using them for my website and I have nothing to say BUT AWESOME! There interface is clean. The ability to integrate the different services directly into the website (popups, pop unders, direct mailing software) is simply the best. I've used a few different ones prior to mailerlite (just the trials), and all of them were more complicated. Only one negative: If you're a time-sensitive person, the website can be slow. You have to go through a bunch of buttons to change the format of all of your popups and such. However, it gives you amazing control over everything so the wait is well worth it in my opinion. As for the mailing lists, they are super simple to use and keep track of. It's easy to design each mail to your specification, and even select time-sensitive ones (one email a week after they sign up originally, for example). So it makes it easy to just setup one-time and not really worry about it except for your own personal emails you send sporadically for the mailing list. For example, I have mine setup to send an intro email, followup email the next day, then a list of best articles one week after initial signup. It does all this automatically so I don't have too. And i've tested it - it works great. It also looks fantastic when you put the work in. You can view my popup and my sidebar mailing opt-in form here: www.hiddendominion.com/ As you can/could see - it's super sleek and can be negotiated to match anything to your design. In short, highly recommend. If you're looking for a place to start - don't even think about other options. Stick with mailerlite. You won't regret it!

Pros

Easy to use Great customer support Tons of options Easy to manage mailing list Ability to setup intermittent emails

Cons

Slow to load the designing tables

Great Platform & Amazing Customer Service!

impressed and highly recommend!

28/01/2017

we love mailerlite. we initially were using mailchimp because it integrates with many wordpress themes and plugins, but mailchimp is unattractive. Mailerlite is easy to use, it has FREE automations (which means you can send automatic content upgrades and automatic courses to your subscribers). The landing pages are beautiful and the support team is nice. We predict great future for mailerlite and we cannot wait to see it grow! thank you mailerlite for offering better services and integration for our customers and our website! we love you

Clean, complete, easy !

Yep this is the perfect software for my small business. Soooo much better than MailChimp in my humble opinion.

Pros

It's clean, easy, complete !

Cons

A bit slow sometimes. I wish we could edit the subscribers right from the list view instead of having to click on them then edit.

MailerLite will take your money!

19/01/2017

I usually don't write reviews but I had to write a review on this one. I had to upgrade in order to send emails to all my subscribers only to find out that I can't send broadcast because the emails on my automation don't follow their rules. When I asked for the refund they said that they can't give the refund because I already send emails to my subscribers but I can't send any emails because they won't approved the account. They should've said that from the beginning, you will loose your money stay away from this MailerLite and go with another Email provider. Try Elastic Email. It is way cheaper and better.
