As an email marketing software, iContact is very affordable and user-friendly. It is easy to learn by anyone with a basic knowledge of this type of program. You can import your current lists easily and add people you’ve met online without them needing to opt in at your website. This is very good for speakers who gather most contacts at their appearances.

Pros :

  • User-friendly.
  • Easy to learn and navigate.
  • Affordable.
  • List import is easy.
  • Adding people you met in person is simple.

Cons :

  • Multiple opt in forms not available.

ActiveCampaign is a great email marketing tool if you want to save more time in keeping track and sending communication to thousands of customers. You can also give access to your sales staff as many as you want as agents with no extra fees unlike other tools that often charge extra per user.

What do you like best?I came into a new marketing position at an events-based company. There were leftover templates pre-created in iContact by the previous marketing associate. I liked the fact that I could just reuse these templates, or use them as a working grounds for customizing succinct messaging with relevant information, which I assumed would be more efficient for campaigns. I was terribly wrong.What do you dislike?The editing features on iContact are outdated. The image upload has a 200k limit. The image upload was glitchy when loading. The text formatting was glitchy (issues with bolding text). The draft save didn't always work. Sometimes it saved. Sometimes it loaded previous versions. This caused severe issues when sending emails. I've caused customer support several times about these glitches. A customer representative from iContact actually told me that because of recipients recognizing the server information of iContact, over several years time, it may be likely that the unopened emails would eventually move the iContact server (our company) into the junk mail folder, reducing the open rate of our subscribers. When asked if they had created a solution to correct for this issue, they had none. Today, a previous draft email made its way to our recipients, instead of a current email. My hope was that the email could be retracted. I called customer support to explain the issue, and he...Recommendations to others considering the productDo not buy their product.What business problems are you solving? What benefits have you realized?Marketing for events. Marketing automation. Clear communications. iContact presented issues against many of our goals.

I would recommend against SendGrid. We started using SendGrid using a relative old list. We immediately ran into issues with this list and had our account suspended. Checking the same list with MailChimp we found that MailChimp warned us about the quality issues before sending, allowing us to clean the list, and SendGrid just closed our account after sending and running into high bounce rates. After that we had to deal with a highly critical customer service department that treated us like a headmaster treats a child. Contrastingly, working with MailChimp is a breeze. I realize that using an old list was actually a mistake on our side. However, I believe a service can protect you against making beginner's mistakes in stead of punishing you for them.
