Mailgun

Even with the list of negatives, Mailgun is still a great solution for how easy it is to work with and how ubiquitous it is to find examples and libraries out there on the internet. The company has great support and are usually quick to address and fix things. I do think they have some room for improvement with the lack of templates and the outdated UI log handling/filtering.

If you need APIs to automate the process SendinBlue is the best choice. If you are manually creating the content for each newsletter then the advantages of SendinBlue will not be well utilized and there may be other options that could be explored

SendinBlue

  • List migration and verification: high level of scrutiny on your email list import before your first campaign launch. See this as a benefit to your deliverability as junk senders will be eliminated.
  • Templates and Builder: very clean and easy to use builder allowing even a novice to produce great looking emails. Not a lot of fluff and useless elements, only the stuff you need to get information and effective CTA prompts to your valued customers/clients.
  • SMS and SMTP: all under one program allowing for the integration of email marketing and text marketing without having to sync multiple programs.
  • Excellent Support: without a doubt they are the leader in support and you are made to feel like a top customer no matter the volume of emails.
  • Pricing: well, take a look and you will be hard pressed to find a better deal for the quality and volume.

  • Better reputation of shared IPs.

SendinBlue

  • Template updates: I would like to see them rotate or add a few template options for seasonal celebrations. For some of my users, they work off of templates and it would be nice to get a few new options from time to time. But this is not a big deal or deal breaker. They offer enough standard.
  • Video tutorials: not a huge thing, but for visual learners, a few video tutorials would be helpful when onboarding new users.

It could be more up-to-date and could offer some extra features that other competitors do like templating and better querying and filtering. As it is right now most things are easy to use but seem rather barebones next to Mandrill. The API is easy to implement thanks to the great documentation which is why I recommend Mailgun so often.

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

Mailgun

I chose Mailgun because I work in the healthcare space, and they were the only company I could find that was decent, not over the top expensive, and would sign a BAA.

Fanbridge, Mailchimp are some I researched and tried. FanBridge is only free for about a month and it didn't feel logical to keep using a site I use 1-2 times a month. MailChimp just felt cheap to me. I researched through google and SendinBlue was highly recommended. I tried it out and fell in love the first attempt with the ease of adding contacts, setting up automatic replies, and the drag option for designing the email layouts.

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

Return on Investment

Mailgun

  • Cancellation upsell transactional emails reduced our churn
  • Welcome emails increased our inbound customer contact substantially
  • Password reset emails keep our customer support burden low

  • Not sure yet, but reactiveness of support and the way they need to validate and revalidate all the time, may cause delays in campaigns.
