Benchmark Email

For low volume non-profits, Benchmark Email provides a respectable free service. Ease of use is high and customization of the email is good. The discount for 501(c)(3) organizations and fully free use for non-profits that help children is commendable. Although the GUI editor is flexible and easy to learn, it does have some issues with certain detailed formatting concerns, like properly showing the newlines between paragraphs. Image/photo processing and presentation is similarly both easy to use, but frustrating due to some capability gaps and quirks, like specifying image sizes and display on hi-resolution devices.

Overall, Benchmark Email provides a good service that is easy to learn to expand your communication reach; however, the ROI and satisfaction may not be as high if paying fees comparable to other offerings.

It helps with managing email lists and reaching out to new potential customers.
It's a decent marketing automation solution for creating and managing drip campaigns. It works, but the fact that it isn't cloud-based, makes it seem like it rarely, if ever, gets improvements to its interface when it could really use some. Its interface feels outdated, when a fresher, more modern design and format could be really useful. The upside to it not being a cloud-based service is you don't have to "rent" it and it's a one-time fee.

Cons

Benchmark Email

  • Scheduling emails can be a nightmare. I, for some reason, can never schedule an email at the correct time I want. They make the time zones confusing and it's in a 24 hour format which is annoying.
  • You can customize well in the editor but it can be an extremely painful experience if you make a mistake. There's no undo button after you save something.
  • Email automation is available but it's extremely basic.

  • The functionality of the product could be easier.
  • It can be tough to find features you're looking for within the product (but they're usually there).
  • Scheduling process could be clearer.
  • Most features could be streamlined or simplified better.

Alternatives Considered

Benchmark Email

Of the free email marketing services I tried, Benchmark could only stack up against Zoho Campaigns and Moosend. as unfortunately, MailChimp has better signup form customization options, SendinBlue's free plan offers advanced automation and MailerLite offers advanced customization and the creation of landing page.I do believe that Benchmark email has a lot of potential, and if they fix the design issues and the allow signup forms to have their own URLs that can easily be shared, then they would stack up well against most free ESPs.

Return on Investment

Benchmark Email

  • If we think particularly on the ROI then benchmark email gives you a definite amount of ROI. But it takes time, you will see the results after a six month span of time. Because sending an email itself is a slow and steady process to follow.

  • Low risk for investment cost.
  • Potential for greater reach to new or existing clients.
  • Clumsy interface causes use to take more time, however.
