Overall Satisfaction with SendinBlue

SendinBlue is a marketing tool for Sarah Lightman and Sarah Lightman Management. It helps connect Sarah and her fans, and it helps her keep her fans up to date with her latest and greatest shows and music news. It also helps Sarah be perceived as a professional, business savvy industry artist, while also helping her market and maintain consistent communication with fans and colleagues.

Pros

  • I love how easy it is to design the emails. I don't have to be an HTML pro to make creative and clean emails to send to fans. I also love how you can drag and upload almost any photo including a logo in the header!
  • I love how the tools on the site help keep me organized. Anytime I sign up a new fan, SendinBlue automatically sends a welcome email custom created by me so it's automated yes, but personal and sincere.
  • Another strength is the folder option SendinBlue has for your contacts. Sometimes I may want to send an email to fans, and sometimes I just want to send an email to professional connections. Have the option to create folders helps a ton!
  • I love how you can send many emails for free on SendinBlue. One of the many reasons I didn't choose other mailing list sites was that I had to pay a fee after a trial, or after only a small number of messages. SendinBlue gets that not everyone can afford to pay a ton of money just to send mass emails.

Cons

  • I would really love if there were an input option for adding videos! I just released a music video and it would be so nice if fans could watch the video while reading the rest of the email instead of needing a new browser to be opened.
  • I would love new designs and features for the font and email layout options just to keep it fresh and fun!
  • It would be cool if SendinBlue could also team up with social media for sharing purposes. Often times I can share an Instagram post to Twitter and Facebook in one click. It would be cool if I could send from Instagram to my SenditBlue contacts!
  • It has had a negative impact on my business because I have to share news and my show schedule on multiple platforms so by it not being connected with my website, social media, and more it takes me much more time than necessary to great the email just for SenditBlue contacts
  • Positively it has created it has brought fans to shows and many have stayed on the mailing list.
  • Positively SendinBlue has saved me money and helps me reach many fans and professionals at once via email.
Fanbridge, Mailchimp are some I researched and tried. FanBridge is only free for about a month and it didn't feel logical to keep using a site I use 1-2 times a month. MailChimp just felt cheap to me. I researched through google and SendinBlue was highly recommended. I tried it out and fell in love the first attempt with the ease of adding contacts, setting up automatic replies, and the drag option for designing the email layouts.
I highly recommend it for any professional who uses email for business and to stay connected. It's even great if you need to send invites or news to many family and friends!
