Email list marketing provider recommendation
Posted on 2011-02-18
I'm looking for a good email list marketing provider for our email list of about 3,000 addresses. The addresses need to be segmented into about 11 different groups.
I've looked at ConstantContact.com but the user interface is clunky. There's no way to save custom templates and the default is to send to the entire list which I don't see us ever wanting to do. There's no confirmation screen telling you which group you're sending to before you send out the email, either. I'll be training at least 3 non-techy people in our office to send emails, so the interface needs to be easy to use.
On the positive side, I like the way Constant Contact handles the group signup, directing users to their profile page if they're already signed up for a group.
I also looked at Mailchimp.com. The sender interface is very easy and has a confirmation prompt before you send out the email. It's also possible to save custom templates.
But if someone is already signed up for list 'A' and tries to sign up for list 'B' on a website, they'll receive an 'Already signed up for the list' error message.
Anyone using an email list provider that is both easy to use to send emails and handles multiple group signups better than mailchimp?
Thanks in advance for any help,
