Overall Satisfaction with Litmus

Used by an internal agency to review the rendering of emails sent prior to deployment. It is used within a department which is an internal agency that performs the work of marketers on their behalf.
  • Rendering variety
  • Quick to market with new test options.
  • Great community
  • Training and support
  • Pricing/billing model should be email rather than test based.
  • Alerts to provide current usage when reaching different thresholds.
  • Time savings.
  • Reputation protection (by detecting embarrassing issues early).
Makes it easier to run tests directly I suppose, but, out of habit, I still go back to the main site.
We do not leverage this feature.
We do not use this feature yet but have plans to.
Litmus is comparable from an offering perspective but has a stronger community. The pricing model is different from EOA and 250ok and something worth evaluating as discussed as in the customer grapevine, it's the only negative I've ever heard.
I've used and managed the Litmus account both at email service providers (Salesforce and Cheetah Digital) and most recently as a lowly end-user. Litmus is excellent for those agencies or ESP groups that need to manage a large number of sub-accounts and keep track of who is actively using or not using the account. Litmus is not so great about giving billing surprises for overages.
