    ConvertKit

    Email marketing for authors

    I've never used ConvertKit, but I've heard really great things about it from my blogger friends (and people who have their business built around that business model). The main reason I was looking at it was that you can set up different email forms with a different opt-in bonus for each one - so if you had a post about email marketing apps, the opt-in prompt would be a download about email marketing, with a different download/bonus for a post about PR outreach, etc. (I use MailMunch on my blog & they just added this feature for MailChimp opt-in forms, so I'll probably be sticking with MailChimp for now.)

    Been using Sendgrid since a while and I have its API installed as well to deliver both transactional and marketing emails. As with everything else, it might take a while to get used to their interface and features but does everything. They have a good knowledge base with step-by-step resources. Segmentation, contact management and analytics are a part. They also have deliverability/reputation reporting and scoring.

    I have used SendGrid on a lot of my projects over the years, and their API makes delivering both transactional and marketing emails so easy. Plus, their SDKs in languages like Ruby make the developer experience so seamless. Their interface differentiates from alternatives like MailChimp, but they have a wide directory of getting started resources, and their team has always been super responsive to me.

  5. Check https://emailoctopus.com/ - they do use Amazon infrastructure (SES) to send emails, hence they are way cheaper. If you prefer standard cloud solution, check https://www.campaignmonitor.com

      In fact, I like it that my colleagues have a shared Stripo account. Convenient when a large number of people need to have access to work on and edit same projects. Would love to embed in my SaaS

      We had a separate person, who has created adaptive emails for our company. Now we don't need it anymore. As a Business Analyst I spent a few hours for creating more than 25 emails. Stripo really decreases expenses.

    I used MailChimp for years, and was constantly annoyed. I come up with some non-conventional automation ideas, and MailChimp felt like trying to climb a ladder with handcuffs. I ended up switching to ActiveCampaign, and I've been extremely happy with them. They allow a ton of control in their automation builder. The downside is the email editing experience on AC is terrible. MailChimp on the other hand has a great email editing experience. If you just want to send a nice-looking email once in awhile, MailChimp is the clear choice. If you want sophisticated automations, I recommend ActiveCampaign. (Here's a long comparison I did between the two services: http://kadavy.net/blog/posts/mai... )

    Some excellent email marketing tools: * MailChimp and * Mailchimp alternatives like Agile CRM’s email marketing feature. (https://www.agilecrm.com/mailchi...) and the experience has been great so far (past 1 yr). I suggest you try Agile CRM’s email marketing (https://www.agilecrm.com/email-m...) for lead generation as it has email marketing, as well as CRM capabilities to manage leads end-to-end (lead generation -> Lead scoring ->, Lead Nurturing -> Lead Segmentation => Lead Management). Also, Agile CRM has been rated as the best CRM by G2Crowd, Capterra and TrustRadius. Used by over 15000 businesses worldwide! Here are the email marketing features of Agile CRM: * Prepackaged & Custom Templates * Personalization * Email Lead Scoring * Tracking and Metrics * Email A/B Testing * Drag-and-Drop Email Builder * Target Your Audience * Sharing on Social Media * Autoresponders * Real-Time Alerts Hope this helps! :)

    HubSpot CRM

    Organize, track, and sell

    Omer Molad
    Omer Molad4Co-founder and CEO @ Vervoe · Written
    MailChimp's main advantage is its transactional email service, Mandrill. But otherwise it often makes sense to use an email campaign product that is part of a larger marketing offering. That way email, blog hosting, social sharing and landing pages are all in one place and everything can be measured. That's why we use HubSpot.

      I've been using HubSpot CRM since it was in Beta and it's really matured into a powerful CRM. I do pay for the Sales Pro tools which unlock a lot of power. There are some limitations however that make it a bad fit, you can read more about those in this review - https://www.techsmartboss.com/blog/top-things-you-should-know-about-the-limitations-of-hubspot-crm-with-workarounds/

      I applied for the program through Start-Up Chile accelerator for my startup.

      It is a bad product, it lacks of quality, features and it is expensive. That is ok, you have the choice to deliver bad quality as I have the choice to find other solution.

      But I can not cancel hubspot account, now we are attached to a 12month contract per agent without any advert. I'm watching how they take my money every month even when I am not using it, and i begging them to cancel my account, they refuse.

      Keep away from hubspot for startups, this is more a SCAM than a support program.

    We needed something more robust than Mailchimp. Something that works with our CRM, allows us to handle multiple mailings for a single event, variables and RSVPs. They worked with us to create templates that are easy to use, modular, on-brand and responsive. Once the templates are made we can have multiple people create newsletters, advisories and invites without screwing up the layouts or going off brand.

      I've been using YAMM for over a year now. I've used it for investor / stakeholder updates, team updates, etc. In terms of efficiency, I save a boatload of time and can keep track of who is getting my messages.

      It's the best of it's class.

      I set it up within minutes. The google sheets integration is smooth. Sent out campaign to 300+ in one day with personalization and scheduling. The feature set is pretty expansive. Looking forward to use the Saleforce integration. If it works well, that would be epic! Very straightforward to use and measure success

      Meanwhile I think an onboarding guide will really help after setting up the account. Somehow I missed it and had to spend a bit of time to understand how to setup my first campaign.

    Gmass is one of my favorite mass email tools. The service is incredibly customizable and flexible and works directly with google sheets/Gsuite plus gives you reporting right in your inbox. the UI seems daunting, but it's very easy once you're used to where everything is located. Oh and it's pretty inexpensive too.

      I've reached out to GMass but they ignore my emails. I wanted to cancel after the trial, but apparently they didn't want the same. I've paid the hundreds of dollars and never used their software because I could never get it working. What a scam.
