Acumbamail
Acumbamail is a newer email marketing tool that has plenty of room to grow, but they are off to a fantastic start. Setting up my first email list was super easy and intuitive. Creating broadcasts is straightforward, as are landing pages. And the automation flows that are built in are incredible. The biggest downside is some of the documentation being in Spanish. It's easy enough to translate but still slows you down. That said, I'm really looking forward to growing with Acumbamail!

Lyris LM is suited well with an organization or group that have several lists, as virtual list hosting is not represented by any other hosting company as far as I can tell.

  • Reports: extensive reporting on mailings and membership. Pre-built reports/charts include Mailings, Members, Server Performance, Web site, Purchases, Interest and Surveys. If Aurea ListManager doesn't have the built-in chart needed, you can easily create your own.
  • Easy to analyze mailings: Completed mailing can be analyzed quickly. Options include viewing any errors that may have resulted, and checking list performance, evaluating recipient actions, ( opens, click-troughs). Details can be seen on a per-recipient basis, allowing you to see exactly what happened with each message sent.
  • Discussion Lists. There are numerous list setting to customize each list.

We will most likely not use Lyris LM for much longer. We have recently been offered to utilize a different software that better meets our needs, is current, user friendly, and has fantastic reporting capabilities.

Acumbamail is still in its infancy, so it's not fair to compare it to ConvertKit, which has been around for a while, but Acumbamail is very similar in its setup. In some ways, its automation look to be a lot more straightforward. I'm really hoping they'll be able to grow Acumbamail into a killer product!

We selected Lyris LM based on cost, the fact that we can create custom reports and the way that they handle bounced emails just to name a few, It is easy to use and we have control of who can and cannot use. With a virtual list I can create a list or take a list down at any given time without filling out a form or contact with my provider and my list looks as if it is coming from my own server @museum.com.

Return on Investment
Acumbamail
  • Still too early to tell, but down the road, the impact of having a good mailing list will be enormous!

Aurea
  • Aurea as a company is mediocre with support. The former LM staff was better informed about the product.
  • LM can do almost anything you need. it's complete.
  • ROI has suffered as Aurea has not updated the product, charges a considerable amount for renewals, promises with no results.
