A great email marketing automation tool

Used monthly for less than 6 months

Review Source: Capterra

I use the SendinBlue free plan that allows me to send 9000 emails monthly. I rely on SendinBlue solely for their automation feature (PS: It's still in Beta). It's rare to find a free email marketing service that offers automation which was the reason why I signed up for SendinBlue. I still use MailChimp but I'm starting to find myself using it less than I did before SendinBlue. I used the automation to create a free 5-day email course. The path was simple: Visitor fill form on my website added automatically to a list wait two minutes send welcome email + course brief wait five minutes send day 1 of email course wait 23 hrs send day 2 wait 22 hrs send day 3 (etc...) It was simple to do, all I had to do was create the templates for each email and select them when creating the workflow and tada my course was good to go. I had to validate my account by answering a few questions such as where I got/will get the emails on my mailing list from. Once I sent them a link to the sidebar and fly-in widget on my website for the email course, to prove that I wasn't spamming anyone or buying lists, my account was validated. I wasn't happy that SendinBlue doesnt have a direct integration on Facebook, to include a tab for getting fans to subscribe, so i contacted them on facebook and they replied with a solution.To me the pros are: Free 9000 monthly email send Amazing email automation for email courses etc. Fast and helpful customer support Responsive email template: I tested the emails on my PC, tablet, kindle tablet and phone and it looked great.

For me and my company the high availability is very important. Generally our experience is good with you guys, you offer great products, but sometimes we have to get in contact with you to solve some connection issues or deley problems. Getting in touch is also quite difficult, you don't offer any emergency phone number to contact you in some emergency cases, email respones are slow. We had situation that we had to switch to Google mail for our transational emails, but that was few months ago. Since few months everything works fine and we are happy to use Sendinblue.

Buggy HTML compose interface and lack of support for mobile left us wanting

Used weekly for 6-12 months
Reviewed 2017-01-05
Review Source: Capterra

First, great ability to manage multiple lists, and focuses attention on the acquisition of emails without manual entry. Much better pricing than other software depending on your sending habits. Second, Oftentimes I would have to "save as draft" and go back and edit or duplicate from an existing email because the HTML editing interface would crash. Combined with the inability to do anything from mobile meant it was hard to get out important announcements about events and other happenings on short notice. Maybe not really its strong suite, so still giving 4 stars for overall excellence.Pricing, very competitive Beautiful, well integrated with email acquisition

Good choice when Mailchimp became too expensive for your size

Used weekly for 6-12 months

Review Source: Capterra

We grew a lot on Mailchimp and it became too expensive for us. We found Sendinblue and it worked well enough for our needs. It has a functional campaign editor that is a bit glitchy and not as polished. But usable enough! Their API (we use the Ruby gem) is simpler to use than Mailchimp with on feature clearly lacking: we cannot register our subscribers server-side AND send an opt-in.It's cheaper than Mailchimp for our list size.

GetApp Analysis

Email newsletters and promotions have replaced direct mail pieces for many businesses, primarily because of the speed, efficiency, and high return on investment that online marketing can provide. SendinBlue is a leading solution for businesses that are interested in independently managing their email and SMS marketing campaigns, along with sending transactional messages.

Suitable for businesses in every industry, SendinBlue has integrated tools for building responsive newsletters, transactional emails and SMS messaging into a unified platform. Transactional messages enable businesses to send purchase confirmations, password resets, and other non-commercial messages to their clients.


What is SendinBlue Email?

SendinBlue is working to democratize the world of email marketing, one client at a time. With the web-based platform, businesses can create campaigns, manage contact lists, and send emails to the subscribers on their custom contact lists. After those messages have been sent, SendinBlue provides its users with clear graphs, reports, and statistics that they can then use to track the results of their online marketing campaigns.

Advanced features enable businesses to schedule when their messages should be sent and segment contacts based on custom filters. SendinBlue also provides businesses with customizable subscription forms that they can integrate into their websites to encourage more customers to sign up to receive their marketing messages.

SendinBlue differentiates itself competitors in the industry by offering a reseller platform for agencies, along with multi-language options. Pricing is another area where SendinBlue stands apart, given that the solution is significantly less expensive than many competing platforms. SendinBlue’s self-serve approach enables users to affordably send marketing emails on their own, without relying on agencies or industry “experts.”


Who is SendinBlue Email for?

SendinBlue offers self-serve tools that are suitable for businesses of all sizes. The vendor works with clients with subscriber lists that range in size from 100 contacts all the way to 1 million+.

Some of SendinBlue’s most well known clients include Rakuten and BMW. Although SendinBlue is most frequently used by marketing professionals, the self-serve system is straightforward enough that it can be utilized by any member of a company’s team.


Main features

Building Email & SMS Campaigns

Build an email marketing campaign using SendinBlue’s email creation tools. Drag and drop features enable you to edit text, content, forms, and pictures until you’re happy with the completed look. You can achieve maximum personalization by styling your emails using SendinBlue’s Creation Tools.

Upload custom images from the image gallery to embed in your emails. You can save your emails to continue working on the design at a later time, or save yourself some time by relying on SendinBlue’s templates to get the job done quickly.

Running Campaign Reports

Once your email campaign has been sent, view SendinBlue’s Reports to track the results of your efforts. After you’ve chosen the campaign you’re most interested in learning more about, SendinBlue will provide you with all the relevant data, including interaction histories and statistics for each subscriber on your list.

Within each of your reports, you’ll see a breakdown of the number of views, unique views, clicks, unique clicks, unsubscribe requests, and bounces that occurred as a result of your mailing. You can see what percentage of recipients marked your message as spam, and see a list of which readers viewed your message in its entirety. You can then download your report onto your desktop, or share it with colleagues online using SendinBlue’s sharing tools.

Viewing Real-Time Statistics

For a more high-level view of your email campaigns, click on the Statistics tab. Campaign statistics allow you to follow campaign results in real-time. Not only can you see the overall results of your email marketing campaigns, but you can also view those results by ISP. SendinBlue even lets you build your own tracking statistics with custom metrics.

Filter the statistics that SendinBlue provides by date range. Rather than limiting results based on campaigns, the Statistics page limits results by date. For example, you can see the open rate, click rate, and un-subscription rate for messages sent in April and May. You can also drill down to see more detailed analytics, both for email and SMS campaigns.

Sending Transactional Messages

Transactional messages can be sent via SMS or email, and they frequently include things like purchase confirmations, password resets, and other non-commercial information. SendinBlue offers a number of advanced deliverability and tracking tools through its transactional service. For example, the platform supports automatically blacklisting contacts that result in hard-bounces to keep contact lists as healthy as possible.

View the results of your transactional messages through SendinBlue’s dashboard, keeping a close eye on the total number of SMS messages being sent per second, minute, or hour. Detailed analytics show exactly how many SMS subscribers have replied to or rejected the transactional messages your company has sent in the past month, compared to the total number of messages that have been sent and received.

Create personalized marketing workflows

Marketing automation enables you to send compelling email and SMS messages to your contacts when they are most likely to act. Novices and experts alike can create multi-step, multi-channel campaigns in a matter of minutes.

You can use SendinBlue’s pre-made workflows for the most common marketing scenarios, such as: welcome emails, birthday deals, receipts and abandoned card follow-ups. You can also mix and match triggers, conditions, and actions to create custom workflows. Advanced reporting helps you optimize each step of the journey.


Integrations

SendinBlue integrates with many other applications, including PrestaShop, Magento, WooCommerce, Easy Digital Downloads and Wordpress. Plugins are also available for Prestashop, Magento, and Wordpress.


Pricing

Pricing for SendinBlue is deceptively simple. Users pay based on the number of emails that they send in a month. The company also offers a free plan for users who send fewer than 9,000 emails per month.


Bottom line

  • Enables companies to send email and SMS messages to subscribers.

  • Self-service marketing solution.

  • Equally suitable for beginners and advanced users.

  • Built for businesses of all sizes.

  • Detailed reports track the results of online campaigns.
