We’re using MailChimp right now for our newsletters, but we’re building and looking into more comprehensive marketing automation platforms. We’re also evaluating different email marketing tools like, Marketo, and HubSpot.

MailChimp is great, but if you want very robust templating features you sometimes need a developer to do that work. It has very good integrations and a lot of functionalities: AB testing, email automation and personalization. They should do a better job of pointing out some of the more advanced features. You really have to look for them, otherwise you might not even see that they are there.

MailChimp - Best Email Marketing Tools for Startups

MailChimp is an email marketing solution that helps you run effective email campaigns and send newsletters. With a clear focus on ease of use, MailChimp streamlines complicated workflows into simple tasks, like sending automated, segmented emails or keeping detailed records about specific customers. The tool also offers advanced reporting options that help you monitor sales, website activity and revenue. MailChimp keeps its prices low, so it comes as no surprise that it’s the most commonly used email marketing software among startups.

How startups use MailChimp?

MailChimp is used by a wide variety of companies across many industries, but it is especially popular among smaller, early-stage startups with less complex email marketing needs who appreciate MailChimp’s simplicity.

How much does MailChimp cost?

MailChimp’s initial plan is free, letting you send 12,000 emails each month to a recipient base of 2,000 people. However, once you grow past either of those benchmarks, you must purchase a monthly package. A basic package starts out at $10 per month and grows from there, but if you’re uncomfortable with a monthly fee, you can also choose to pay per email--from $0.03 to a fraction of a penny per email, depending on how many bulk credits you purchase.
