Adstream

It's best when dealing with several clients, products, and creative materials. When dealing with a high volume of creative materials to be trafficked to several different networks, I'd recommend Adstream.

SendinBlue

SendinBlue is great for simple email marketing, especially for small businesses. It's very easy to get the account setup and create an email compared to other services like MailChimp. It's also very user-friendly for those who may not be technically savvy. If you have a much larger scale email list or regularly import lists from outside SendinBlue, then you may want to look elsewhere. SendinBlue is great if you stay within the system, but can cause trouble if you import email lists outside of the system.

Cons

  • It would be good if ISCI codes were automatically created based on pre-defined variables
Jorge Amador, M.S. profile photo
  • I would like to see easier data collection from subscribers. The process for adding customs fields and populating those fields from an easy to use form is a bit tricky.
  • I would like to see functions built in to SendinBlue that would allow me to utilize one-time use coupons into my newsletters. So when they click a link on the newsletter, SendinBlue will give them a coupon code, but each subscriber can only redeem that coupon once.

I personally am not involved in the decision to renew the product, but I had only positive experiences with the product and thus would recommend its use and renewal.

I am a web designer and systems admin. I have not found anything with this system that was hard to use. Other systems make it hard to do simple tasks and is very limiting. SendinBlue doesn't limit you.

Everything loads very quickly, it saves as you go along so you're unlikely to loose work if your computer fails. Reports are there immediately too so you're able to act quickly on customer engagement.

These people helped me identify errors when setting up DKIM and were more than helpful in trying to diagnose low open rates with a few campaigns identifying where improvement can be made and how to more effectively manage contact lists. The support is excellent.

If you follow all the steps of the setup process they give you, any one can set this up in about 1 - 2 hours.

Alternatives Considered

I haven't used other products that are similar to Adstream.
Jorge Amador, M.S. profile photo
The newsletter plug-in for WordPress accomplished the automation tasks but delivery was slow. It also didn't manage the subscriber lists well and often had problems with broken links when using the tags functionality.Mailjet accomplished the objective but customer service was poor. Their pricing plans were also not as flexible. At my volume, I actually saved money by going with SendinBlue. Other volumes may differ.

They have multiple options for upgrading bigger senders or if you need more emails sent in a month.
