Overall Satisfaction with Mailchimp

I use Mailchimp to collect and manage email subscribers for my business. I create sign-up forms that are integrated on my website and email marketing campaigns.

Pros

  • Mailchimp has a nice sense of humour, they are a fun brand to work with.
  • The platform allows me to organize my email subscribers so that I know where they came from and their interests.
  • Mailchimp integrates with quite a few other major platforms which I also use.
  • The platform allows you to easily create email marketing campaigns that look professional.

Cons

  • When I first started, it was very difficult for me to use the platform. I did not understand all the basic concepts of email marketing and I felt overwhelmed.
  • I can send out emails to my customers that look professional.
  • I can organize and keep all my subscribers in one place.
If you have a business with email subscribers, this is a good platform to use even on the free plan. You will be able to manage your current subscribers, get new subscribers and create email marketing campaigns.

Evaluating Mailchimp and Competitors

  • Price
  • Product Features
  • Product Usability
  • Product Reputation
  • Prior Experience with the Product
That it integrates with other popular platforms like Shopify.
Sometimes instead of doing extensive research about competing platforms, I just get going by signing up for the free version immediately and testing them one by one. I then end up using the platform that satisfies my requirements in the quickest and easiest way.
