We use Omnisend to send email blasts to our customer list. It is being used for our CBD brand and it helps us keep in touch, announce sales and drive traffic to our website.
  • Email content templates.
  • UX experience.
  • Audience segmentation and tagging.
  • More options to customize emails.
  • Better customer service.
  • Email scheduling.
Omnisend is user-friendly, similar to Mail Chimp for those starting out. It's easy to import contacts, segment them and build lists. The pre-built templates are aesthetically pleasing and easy to customize. For those with large customer lists and needing to make their email graphics a little more advanced, I would say Omnisend falls short.
  • Increased efficiency.
  • Saves time.
  • Another method of driving direct sales to our site that works.

I would say Omnisend is fairly similar in UX, usability, pre-built content templates, and customizable features. I chose Omnisend because it seemed simple to start and the price was within budget. The list segmentation and contact import features feel superior to the other competitors.

Omnisend is currently used across the whole organization, and it is an excellent tool for emailing newsletters to our clients.
  • Omnisend permits 2000 emails sent per day with the free plan once linked to your website.
  • Omnisend permits unlimited contacts with free plan when most other providers have a limit unless you opt for a paid subscription.
  • A larger selection of templates
  • More flexibility with customization
Omnisend is an excellent resource for companies that want to opt-in and out of paid subscriptions as there is no limit on contacts with a free subscription. This permits you to have the contacts in the account and then opt into the paid subscription when mass mailings need to go out.
  • Omnisend has assisted with getting the word out
  • Great structure on templates making the company look very professional.

By far, Omnisend is my preferred mail software. The program has several customizations and options in the free plan that you do not receive on other mail software programs.

Soundest (now Omnisend) is used to automate emails and communications from our Shopify store. It is very easy to use and effective at setting up automated triggered emails for order follow-up, customer reactivation, reviews. I would consider it a must-have for anyone selling online.
  • Template/Email creation is easy.
  • Triggered email/automation setup is easy and effective.
  • Reporting is good.
  • Follow-up campaigns are easy and effective.
  • Initial setup wasn't firing right, support issue was handled pretty quickly and easily.
  • It does not go back and put previous orders/customers into the automation. It will only work with go-forward customers from the time you install the product. (At least that's what the outcome of our support inquiry told us...).
  • Would like to see more sample templates and campaigns.
For email and form automation for Shopify, it is a must have product. If you are selling products online, Omnisend will make your life easier, but more importantly, you WILL get more return customers and repeat business by using this product.
  • Within the first month we has return customers placing larger orders.
  • Very easy for anyone on the team to set up, modify.
  • Reporting for management is easy.

We're a pretty small outfit--pretty much just me and my partner. I've taken on the marketing duties and we've had great successes in many areas. But email marketing was always a tough one because there are so many apps out there and it's difficult figuring out which one is the best. Anyways, after trying MailChimp and Klaviyo (too unfriendly and too expensive), we found Omnisend, and it's been great ever since. Such easy setup and we created our newsletter quickly. I think maybe 5 or 10 mins. Now we're using it regularly. We pretty much fell in love with their pre-filled popups and their automation is great and getting better and better each day. It takes a little bit of work to set up the automation workflows the first time, but afterwards you don't have to worry about it anymore. It's currently being used by both of us now, but I take the brunt of the creation and my partner checks the numbers from time to time. It's really great and I'd wholeheartedly recommend it!
  • Newsletter campaigns - the content editor is the usual one you see on email marketing apps, but it works so smoothly and well. Of course, there's Product Picker that allows you to just pick a product from your store and it goes straight into your newsletter--no need to add images or descriptions. Really easy.
  • Popups are great because they look amazing right out of the box. It's all pre-filled so if you don't like looking at a blank screen, you can just adapt the wording and it's there. voila!
  • Automation really is nice and it's the bulk of what we're doing now. It's like second level ecommerce marketing I guess, because you really see after some time how having automated steps can really save you time and make you a lot more money. Omnisend's automations are really good and intuitive and was really easy to learn and implement.
  • They've recently updated their Segmentation features and at first I was confused by it, but now I see where the misunderstanding came from. I think that when I found what I was looking for, I saw it was actually better than I wanted. So I guess one con for me was just a little lack of clear communication or explanation on their part.
It's kind of an automation workflow, but for example you can set up a popup to appear at a specific time on a specific product page and offer the visitor something. The visitor then signs up and then (after you've set up your automation sequence) that visitor gets a specific welcome page based on the popup they signed up through, and then a specific order confirmation email and everything else flows from that specific popup. That's great because it's allowed us to sort of fine-tune our offerings to get our visitors' emails in the first place and offer, for example, someone browsing a product page for 3 minutes something different than someone staying 20 seconds on the homepage and then leaving.
  • ROI has gone up when compared to other email marketing. Our open rates have increased and naturally also our conversion rates. Both in absolute and percentage terms. I don't have hard figures with me, but I'd say we've almost doubled what we've done with other email marketing apps.

At first I went through the standard choice, which is MailChimp. It's a nice-looking program and everything, but I wouldn't say they're user-friendly. It's quite techy and when you have an ecommerce store you really just want to get the results. It's a lot of work to create one simple newsletter and their customer support is pretty much non-existent. As for Klaviyo, they're pretty expensive. We just couldn't justify paying that much for results that were pretty much similar to MailChimp--in that it wasn't really impressive. Omnisend really was a breath of fresh air and their support must not sleep at all cause they answer all my smart and stupid questions within like 15 minutes. Every single time.
