  • A great transactional email service is one you won't have to actually look at much, since it'll be running behind the scenes delivering emails automatically without you having to worry about that. Mandrill will do that job well, but it'll also entice you to check its app a bit more than you might with other services, with the wealth of other features it offers. And, since every account gets the same features, and you only have to pay for the emails you send, Mandrill's an affordable option to send your emails that'll take care of even more of your email sending needs that you might have expected.

  • Mandrill is a spin-off from Mail Chimp. It offers high-powered bulk email campaign software, detailed analytics and a low, pay-as-you-go price.

  • What do you like best?

    We used Mandrill to automate our transactional email for Lunker.com and help us get past spam filters. Their API instructions were a little hard to figure out at first, but after a few hours of reading we figured out that interfacing with Ruby was actually pretty simple. Mandrill turned out to be very effective in delivering our messages, and the 12,000 free message limit is great for small startups that are just ramping up.

    What do you dislike?

    I wish the tutorials were more linear, but they turned out to be adequate. More integration with MailChimp would make the product better. Perhaps we just haven't figured out how to do it yet, but we also want to email addresses to our MailChimp mailing lists.

    I have used Mandrill for almost 2 months now and I got to say I'm very impressed. I came onboard in the middle of the MailChimp integration so I guess that now is only good if you use MailChimp as your email marketing provider.andnbsp;

    Set up is very easy (You may need to know a little bit of code to set it up) but didn't take me more than 50 minutes to put the key on the script, create the actions and make sure everything worked. After that, you might need to set up the templates. Thse are the same as the Mailchimp ones so again if you are a Mailchimp power user you can integrate with the templates you have available on your account or go ahead and copy paste/import the code no coding skills required.

    So far the emails always get to my costumers, and I barely need any kind of maintenance of any kind.

    This product has saved me a lot of manual remarketing, something that I was doing before deciding to make a purchase.

    Cost: The cost is included (At least for my tier) on the monthly payments I make to Mailchimp. These payments vary with the number of users you might have on your lists.andnbsp;

    Interface: Very user-friendly. For heavy users, the tags on the templates can be life savers.

    Team needed: I would say you need a developer to set everything up including the automation actions and a marketer/front end designer to set up all the campaign.

    Analytics: Mandrill does not have the best analytics suite, but they are decent to get an overview of the campaigns (Open rates, clicks, etc.)

    Overall, I would recommend this product if transactional emails are time-consuming in your organization. If you have Mailchimp paid, account muchandnbsp;better.

    Pros :

    • Easy to use.
    • Tags to easily search templates.
    • Cost.
    • Friendly interface .

    Cons :

    • Merge tags with Mailchimp do not always work as expected.
    • Analytics are weak.

    All opinions are personal, and they don't reflect the opinions of my employer either past, present or futureThe amount of data and options are amazing. Really powerful tool. As well as the fact that all that data can be combine with different search levels really makes this tool one of the best out there. I've been impressed by the quality of information you can find on Kissmetrics, and they always have something new which is interesting.

    Pros :

    • The amount of data and options are amazing. Really powerful tool. This without a doubt the best feature about Kiss Metrics.But the fact that all that data can be combined with different search levels really makes this tool one of the best out there.
    • I used Kiss Metrics a lot from a professional point of view. And you can do so much inside KissMetrics too. You can do many reports, users searches. A/B test etc.
    • I am always using this tool for data analysis and trying to figure out more about our users. It is really a powerful tool if you know how to use it, this can be hard a first. Though KissMetrics does offer a good level of support in that sense.

    Cons :

    • The level of support wasn't as great before, I wrote another review about KissMetrics where I complained about this.
    • I actually said the following "They are hard to reach and even harder to get a feedback from them. This is the most frustrating aspect of Kiss Metrics" this is not the case anymore.
    • Actually, after I wrote that review to reach out to me and apologise and we set a few call since them to solve my needs and problems, so I can't complain about that anymore.
    • They have a tool call the path tool that is really not that good but apart from that everything else on Kiss things to be working well now. And the fact that they have improved their customer service is also a big plus.
    • Last time I ranked them 6/10 now I am giving them a 8/10 I wish all companies will bother to read reviews and check what their users are thinking like KissMetrics did.
