Likelihood to Recommend

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.

I have found this system is suited very well to any type of organization setup.

Pros

  • Ease of use
  • Functionality
  • Communication and transparency
Jorge Amador, M.S. profile photo
  • Layout options and editable layouts. Many newsletter options we tried didn't have too much capability for layout, which could be fine for e-commerce but not for publishing.
  • Clear reporting on the dashboard, and per newsletter sent out.
  • Pricing: the only option we found that charges for emails sent vs. subscriber base. As we do not send emails every day, just once a week, we felt unfairly priced at our send rate with many competitors.

Cons

  • It would be good if ISCI codes were automatically created based on pre-defined variables
Jorge Amador, M.S. profile photo
  • Support -- no phone support :(
  • Automation - good start, but the system is limited and clunky. If & else work, but other common constructs are missing.
  • Email support is slow, and not terribly helpful

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.

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
MailChimp was much more costly than SendinBlue. We have a database of aorund 20,000 emails across 3 websites which came to around £110 per month with MailChimp. Because Sendinblue works off email credits, we were able to reduce our spend to £30-£40 per month depending on how many emails we send.SendinBlue does have a few less features than MailChimp but those are probably more suited to full Marketing Teams that require a deeper insight into customer activity, whereas I am the general website manager who wouldn't have the time, or need, for deeper knowledge with a email database of our size.

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

Return on Investment

  • Faster turnaround times for getting materials through the QA process and delivered to the networks

  • Send in Blue has had a positive impact on our ROI with increased sales.
  • SendinBlue has saved us £70 per month from £110 with mailchimp to around £30-£40.
  • We are able to more quickly create campaigns than with Mailchimp
