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.

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.

What do you like best?Easy to use, pay per sent e-mails, possible to add lists as much as you can. While importing lists, DirectIQ eliminated duplicate and invalid contacts. It was easy to create new lists and add contacts to your lists. It was easy to move contacts between lists. It was possible to edit contacts details. Also it was possible to re-enable contacts who were unsubscribed.What do you dislike?Sometimes popular webmail services denied receiving e-mails. Commonly it was related to the newsletter but I wish I had better delivery scores.Recommendations to others considering the productDirectIQ has better pricing plans. It's also better if you have multiple lists. You can add your contacts to different lists and you don't have limits when adding contacts.What business problems are you solving? What benefits have you realized?I'm business development manager and I have to reach new possible clients. DirectIQ helped me to reach more people's inboxes successfuly. It was very easy to create templates and manage them. It was easy to add new lists, contacts and prevent duplicates or invalid e-mail addresses.
