Helpful with my newsletter blasts

Pros
The feature to see how many people opened and/or clicked on my newsletters give me the ability to see what my clients are interested in.

Cons
The design capabilities seem limited. I would prefer it to give me more abilities to customize my newsletters.

Stay Away...very expensive for simply sending out basic emails

Terrible.

Pros
Professional looking. Nothing more. Rep did not even know how to import more than half of my database and told me I had to manually enter each address.

Cons
First one must understand the salesperson will tell you repeatedly upfront the service is monthly and you can stop whenever you would like. Once you join and try to cancel then you suddenly are told you have a yearly service. Their are monthly programs but NOT yours. Secondly, the service is sophomoric at best and simply a blank template sent to YUOR database twice a month for hundreds of dollars a month that you apparently can’t cancel for 1 year. Third and finally, this is supposedly for real estate professionals. If so, then it is understand this is a relationship business and as a professional I must bring value to my customers and the day I don’t they can cancel. I have had customers cancel for various reasons and have come back for the simple fact I allowed them to cancel and that I bring value and honesty to them. Desperate people and companies that need the money because they consider each sale as one and done will never allow such. Governor yourself wisely. I would suggest look elsewhere.

Content for my social media and a newsletter email for my clients.

Pros
Content is good and the delivery is great. They do both email newsletters and social media posting to the top major ones.

Cons
You cannot customize the content. It would be useful to have some more control of the details of the content.

I have helped agents set up and use this program to help them keep up with Social Media posting.

Pros
I like that once you set it up you don't really have to think about it much more after that and it automatically sends out content at specified times for you.

Cons
I really do not like that it sends the same content out for different customers, it doesn't let you customize the articles themselves to add you own flair to it either.
