However using MailChimp may be holding your business back. There are other email marketing software providers that have a holistic product that do not have the negative connotations I subconsciously associate with businesses that use MailChimp.
See our blog on the Reputational impact of MailChimp – https://dowsocial.com/reputation-impact-of-using-mailchimp-email-marketing/
Therefore we recommend that businesses consider other platforms, for this reason we have partnered with Constant Contact.They have a comprehensive email marketing toolkit that features so much more including surveys, event management, integrated promotions and awesome customer service.
They are running a special offer but it expires on the 31st of July 2015 – So sign up ASAP so you do not miss out using code SP40DISC
MailChimp v Constant Contact
Whilst both platforms are easy to use, it is clear that Constant Contact is a step above MailChimp.
MailChimp does the basics well but gives the impression to your customers that you are unwilling to invest in your business and do not value your communications.
The additional functionality available Constant Contact gives businesses a more professional and sales orientated email marketing platform. It does have costs attached but a well run and managed campaign should repay these quickly.
Constant Contact also offers phone support whereas MailChimp does not, phone support means things can be sorted quickly rather than waiting for an email that may not solve an issue.
This is why we recommend our small business clients use Constant Contact
