Gammadyne Mailer is Windows software for automating a business's email marketing. Email services are prohibitively expensive for a large mailing list. With Gammadyne Mailer, users can install it and send as many emails as desired. There is only a recurring fee if a user wishes to track opens and clicks. But the vendor states even that is inexpensive, and that users are not required to track the entire mailing list. By utilizing a website's mail server, or renting a cheap server, they state…

Workflow feature makes this best suited for those who want to send a series of emails over time based on contact attributes and behavior. Ability to add custom fields and define segments makes this tool valuable for very targeted email campaigns. Lack of communication about releases and poor technical support means your users will need to be fairly skilled in critical thinking and more technical than average. Our knowledge of system came from lots of trial and error.

Our email campaigns are simple (we don't require automation) and we don't have a big box CRM. For us, Gammadyne works perfectly. It's simple and cost-effective.

Pros
Ziff Davis Inc
  • Number 1, is it's ease of use. We have not run into any problems where someone finds Campaigner difficult to use and this comes in handy every day. The more people that know how to use it the better because it reduces stress/buildup on others.
  • We love the reporting system here. We use the clicks and opens to follow up with people all the time so to have all that detailed information is very beneficial.
  • Customization is great. You can really make all your emails look exactly like they're pictured in your head.

Cons
Ziff Davis Inc
  • Campaigner is just too bare-bones. When we first started using Campaigner close to a decade ago it was perfect for what it was. But nowadays Campaigner is missing several features that their competitors offer like exit intent and cart abandonment emails.
  • Campaigner has an astonishingly bad unsubscribe option. We have had many customers complain to us over the years that when they try to unsubscribe through the emails Campaigner sends, their unsubscribe does not go through.
  • Hard to change account settings such as changing our subscription plan. We had to call and were told to wait 24 hours just to make a small change to our account.

  • It would help if the tracking reports didn't expire.
  • I would like to see customizing options in the tracking reports.

I can't see us not renewing unless we find something better. This is highly unlikely because there was a thorough research done for use to chose the best marketing client and it always came back to campaigner.

Usability
Ziff Davis Inc
Great features but awful tech support experiences over five years of use. Some releases broke our workflows and Campaigner could never explain why. Our initial plan provided a designed client support contact. This individual changed frequently without notice and at one point they decided our plan no longer included a designated contact. Of course this was never communicated to us until we tried to reach out to the person. If you are tech savy this system might be for you but you'll be on your own.

Should be better for UI/UX of the software but Gammadyne work always as expected (That's the most important thing for us)

Everything takes a minimum of 24 hours to solve and after being with campaigner for several years we were just told for the first time we have an account rep which we never even spoke to.

MailChimp is far more customizable and User-Friendly, although Campaigner gets the job done. Campaigner could benefit from a design upgrade to bring their look into the modern realm. The drag and drop features and email customization of MailChimp, Campaigner is lacking. However, MailChimp is pricier. So you are definitely getting what you pay for.

  • We are able to sell Campaigner as a premium feature
  • The plans can be a bit pricey
  • We do cover cost by using their flexible "bucket" model.
