She also is available on email and is quick to answer questions or provide solutions. She schedules our monthly calls to be soon after each big send and spends time with us looking at analytics and helping us determine how to best manage our list. Recently she was driving through town and even reached out to ask us to lunch. I really feel like she enjoys working with us—she is a true virtual member of our team.

We use WhatCounts to manage our html email distribution to our external audience of families and alumni. Others at the university use WhatCounts to communicate with alumni, current students, and other internal and external stakeholders. We also use WhatCounts to manage a large mailing list and monitor opens and clicks. Most recently I used the list management tools to confirm who received an email and when or if it was opened.
  • We receive super customer service from a dedicated account representative.
  • The list management tools are easy to use and give us granular insight into what users are opening and where they are clicking.
  • The analytics give us a variety of ways to look at the types of devices being used to view our content and the ways our users interact with content. For example we can see that most opens are on mobile but if a reader wants to spend time clicking into more in depth content they move over to a desktop computer.
  • Some of the list management tools were hard to find at first but now I use them every month. If I could change one thing I would allow the account details filter window to show all the available slots with no scrolling and I would add a feature to set / reset all selections on the dropdowns.

How big is your email list? For the money WhatCounts allows us to manage a large list and gives us great tools. If you have a small list this product might be more than you need.

How many emails do you want to send? WhatCounts charges by the email and of course you get a better price per email the more emails you send. If you will not be sending many emails or are sending to a small list WhatCounts might not be the right tool for you.
