Pusher
As I told you earlier, if you just want to send regular push notifications to the app users, then Pusher shall not be your first choice. However, if you wish to make the app a little more interactive by making live changes in the app using Pusher and sending your user's real-time notifications, then you should definitely try it.

SendPulse is great if you want to connect with your list on a more personal basis, and making sure that your email reaches your subscriber when it is best for him/her. You can also use the SMS function (though I haven't used it yet). Let's say you have clients and want to send a message to them automatically on their birthday, SendPulse allows you to do that. It allows you to add in specific fields that are relevant to you, in order to customise your messaging as much as you want and need.

Pros
Pusher
  • Pusher allows live changes in the UI using push requests. We can also integrate it with the PHP source code.
  • They offer 99.99% uptime, so we can trust on their services.
  • Pusher works well along with the Flutter codebase, so we do not have to modify it much to work on cross-platforms.

  • I like its Drag and Drop function to design e-mailers but it lacks in some functionalities. Foe example when I write two different contents in a same box I need a line to show separation between my contents in the same box but this feature is unavailable in SendPulse.
  • They should include more fonts. Every product or service needs different kind of fonts to make a right impact on customers. With limited option of fonts it restricts user's creativity.
  • It is good to have templates to give users some idea for designing campaigns but here SendPluse has nothing much to offer. They have very limited number of templates.

I find that overall SendPulse is very intuitive to use and the support is there to help you out in case you don't find how to do what you wish to do. The drag and drop functionalities make it easy to create the newsletters you want. Every field is explained and small tutorials are included to show you how to create a new template, newsletter, etc. which makes it very easy to use.

Every time I contacted the support team with a question or a problem, they were very fast in replying and helping me out solve it. Usually latest within 10 minutes I would receive a first answer, and the problem would get solved on the same day.

When implementing SendPulse, it is a good idea to have a transition phase where you still use both systems, in case anything goes wrong.

For SendPulse's price point, I consider their competition to be the likes of Mailchimp, ConstantContact, etc. While SendPulse rates roughly average across the board in all areas, for businesses looking for the cheapest option (which comes with a lack of features/quality), ConstantContact beats them. For quality/features/value, I'd say Mailchimp is the best option for small businesses.

Return on Investment

  • We had over ten thousand customer orders go through over the course of a year with no problems with this API
  • There was very minimal support for this API which allowed us to focus on other priorities.

  • I grow my NRI database by 60 in last year. And this software played a major role in doing so.
  • It made brand building very easy among my clients.
