APSIS Pro

Works well, relatively easy to use - but lacks some up-to-date and modern features as well as look and feel. The support provided is OK but not world class. It is too bad as APSIS as a company is quite good at inspiring and providing insights into trends in email marketing.

Campaign Monitor

If you have a large list you need to run through and validate, this is a good service. Pretty easy in import and export lists. Not too great for segmenting lists, there are better services that make it easier and more impactful.

Pros

  • We have a pre-designed template and pre-build elements and thus it is quite easy to compose nice looking newsletters.
  • Doing split-tests on subject, clicks etc. is quite easy and requires no tech help.
  • Imporing new contacts and adding to the list is straight forward.

  • The visual email builder is great for anyone that is not comfortable with code. It gives you great flexibility, the visual builder is easy to use and and learn.
  • Though this is a feature in most all email marketing platforms, but utilizing this to manage our email lists is a great tool and helps save a lot of time.
  • The feature that you can test your email through various platforms before you send is a great feature and offers some great insight.
  • The customer service is great, I have had some issues in the past but have always received quality assistance.

Cons

  • The user interface is not good. Too much scrolling and too many menues to navigate. Half of the pages are updated to a "new" look with the rest still being the (really) old design. This badly needs a make-over.
  • There is no one-click "send reminder to those who did not open". To send reminders, it is nescessary to build a filter a do a new send using the filter. Such a simple and often repeated task should be automated.
  • It is not possible to add a "Why did you leave us?"-page for opt-outs... Really misses this.
  • The statistics are too limited and to difficult to use - mostly due to the UI design as described above.

  • The entry-level plan is not as competitive
  • It's not as widely integrated as Mailchimp

Alternatives Considered

MailChimp offers more flexibilty but also seems a bit more complicated to use. We did not use it long enough to really get an idea of the positive and negative.

Ease of use is a priority for us because when we recommend a solution, we want it to be intuitive for our clients. For this reason, Campaign Monitor was preferred over providers such as AWeber and Constant Contact. MailChimp is the other that we find comparable to Campaign Monitor and right now the decision is personal preference only

Return on Investment

  • We are still trying to figure out how to use this medium for sales. We have had some success with Black Monday sales, but in general we do not have much response to our emails.
  • We have increases our visibility with our customers by making sure to land in their mailbox regulary with nice looking messages.

  • From an agency perspective, it aids in reinforcing our role as a trusted advisor while also giving us an opportunity to earn passive income.
  • From our clients perspective, Campaign Monitor provides the peace of mind that emails will be delivered and look fantastic.
