We use MessageGears as our main email marketing platform. The intent was to utilize the platform for highly personalized and segmented marketing campaigns to support our brands.
  • The MessageGears Support team is very helpful.
  • The platform is extremely literal. Every possible scenario (included unsubscribes) must be written into every audience query.
  • Messy user interface
  • Email development is overly complicated.
Unless you have someone on your team who is an expert in writing SQL queries and APIs, this platform is not for you.

MessageGears is being used by both the Lifecycle Marketing team and the CRM team to send email. We use this service to drive sales and to support active customers along their lifecycle. MessageGears lets our organization leverage our first-party data to drive pertinent messaging to our current and potential clients at the right time, and for a reasonable cost.
  • Customer Support
  • Sends Email
  • Maintains deliverability
  • Multiple routes to build and send email
  • Multivariate testing
  • WYSIWYG email builder
  • SQL audience error report
  • Native reporting
If you have a large amount of first-party data and your email marketing team knows how to code in SQL, then this is the platform for you. Take direct control of how you define your audiences and send email at enterprise level with very little issues. There are of course some downsides to a system like MessageGears, but they are balanced by price and product capability.

MessageGears is used by our marketing department (4 out of 7 team members use it daily). Our emails are coded in html, loaded up into MessageGears as content, and then blasted as campaigns. We also deploy triggered messages. We've built a custom connection with MessageGears to talk to our large database.
  • Solid customer service
  • Inexpensive solution
  • Flexibility in setup
  • Due to our custom connection, we miss out on some features
  • Our organization codes in HTML versus drag and drop editor
  • Education on new enhancements
MessageGears can be a solid, inexpensive email solution and you can be able to send millions of emails per year. In 2020, we delivered over 235 million emails at a fraction of what that would cost with any other email service provider. We worked with MessageGears on a custom solution with our database.
MessageGears support is always quick to respond when we have an issue, which is rare. Gail has been our main rep and she has been great. We don't have many issues so luckily, we don't need to lean on their customer support team much. That said, it would be beneficial to hear from upper management more.
