I don't think it's well-suited for anyone. In my opinion, the low cost is not worth the extremely poor deliverability.

Vero
Vero tends to play nice with companies that have their websites as the primary source of truth. This allows them to send as many events as they need and develop more complex workflows that introduce conditionality into Vero emails. However, for those that rely more on Salesforce, it might have more limited applications. The product is fairly easy to use, so it's easy for multiple people on the team to pick it up and do what they need for their respective groups. On the other hand, creating email templates will require some knowledge of HTML/CSS, unless those are copied from another source. That would require another product of course that provides more robust layout editing features and templates.

Cons
Mail250
  • In my experience, deliverability is terrible
  • UI feels old and limited
  • Did not follow up to refund request
  • Due to my poor overall experience, I'm very doubtful in the reliability of their features like email verification

  • While Vero offers some WYSIWYG editing, it's on the limited side, as it mostly allows you to edit copy, but not necessarily the layout.
  • The UI/UX has improved dramatically over the course of the last few years, but it can still lag from time to time and experience sluggishness.
  • While reliability is really good, it does have lapses from time to time that will introduce delays into emails being sent out. Once or twice, the system went completely down for a period of time.

Alternatives Considered
Mail250
I picked Mail250 because they seem designed for sending 1-time bulk mail for an affordable price.
Open rates for MailerLite, GetResponse,
ConvertKit, and SendPulse were all over 50%. Sender.net was extremely low at under 10%. Mail250 was around 10%, but also had an extremely high bounce rate of 10%.

Vero
Vero's price tag is far more attractive but for what you will find to be clear and obvious reasons. Vero has no CRM unlike HubSpot and Infusionsoft. Vero also has limited tracking unlike the seemingly endless possibilities offered from HubSpot which as we all know comes with at a significant cost, often not feasible by a small startup company.

Return on Investment
Mail250
  • Unable to use it due to poor deliverability
Read full review
Vero
  • The overall costs of using Vero have been much lower than using two comparable products that handle transactional emails and newsletters, respectively. MailChimp has relatively recently integrated their Mandrill product for transactional emails, so that's worth looking at as well.
  • Using a single product for many things lowers the learning curve, as team members only have to learn one product well, rather than several.
  • While infrequent, Vero's outages have impacted our operations at times. If absolute reliability is crucial to your business, then you may have to find a larger provider with a more robust infrastructure. As mentioned, though, it hasn't been a big problem for us.
