"My master key in my marketing campaigns"

What do you like best?

I like this system because it has a friendly interface, which has adapted perfectly to my marketing campaign structure and therefore to my strategies in terms of design and configuration, in order to reach more people. This system also allows me to automate the process of sending emails.

It also allows me to have control and monitoring of each of my campaigns, even allowing me to apply the AB technique in order to know which campaign is having greater acceptance and to be able to know what things to improve and what other things do not.

This system also allows me to create forms in order to know the opinion of my clients and sectorize them by devices, in order to know what is the opinion of people who use computers and those who use mobile devices.

What do you dislike?

From time to time the system slows down and some error windows jump in the system, of course this is solved with the prompt help of the technical support team, I also did not think that this system has a competitive price, because systems are available A little cheaper than they can reach many customers. For the rest I have no complaints about this program.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you handle a large number of clients, this tool is undoubtedly the ideal one for you and your business, since as you previously read to me and my business it has helped us to grow continuously for 3 years in a row and we go for more years.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Thanks to Campaing Monitor I have been able to reach a large number of clients, it has also allowed us as a company to improve our marketing campaigns without getting to improvise as it usually happens, it has allowed us to automate many processes and perform real-time follow-ups. the acceptance of the campaigns by our clients.

"Campaign Monitor as a marketing campaign design platform"

What do you like best?

I like this platform because it offers everything a designer needs to carry out marketing campaigns via email. Allows our users to register to the email list through a Wufoo form or subtract contact information by email

What do you dislike?

In this case I can indicate that the support it provides is very inefficient, at the time that I have some doubt they do not attend them efficiently which delays me in my work. I would like that they will develop templates for forms, I have also had problems sharing my work in social networks

Recommendations to others considering the product:

It is a very easy to use platform, it allows me to solve my automation and marketing problems in the course of time. I recommend campaign monitor because it is very good software for small business owners they want to leave in their email marketing campaigns

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It has helped me to manage my small business in the best way and now I have a good growth, thanks to the promotion of my email marketing campaigns, also I have a better communication with my current clients and with the potential ones. Thanks to Campaign Monitor I can do my email marketing campaigns more efficiently, communicate in a timely and effective way, among other very positive benefits for my company

What Email Marketing solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"Good automation and marketing platform"

What do you like best?

Campaing Monitor is the software that allows you to create very attractive individual emails or bulletins with original templates, noting that the handling of mass emails will not be a problem. It has a complete and intuitive interface facilitating the automation of emails. Its free use allows to develop the capacity of the initiates, achieving the true adaptation to the software

What do you dislike?

It is necessary to indicate that the support is very inefficient because my doubts do not attend them immediately and that makes the process difficult and delays me. I would like you to develop templates for forms. Another thing that I dislike is that I have had problems sharing my work in social networks

Recommendations to others considering the product:

It is easy to incorporate, the templates look good and are easy to use, with excellent features available, highly recommended for companies with few receivers.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It is very easy to use, and it has solved my automation and marketing problems over time. At the same time the management of emails is an essential quality of Compaing Monitor keeping my inbox in order

"A good option to create email campaigns"

What do you like best?

The interface of the application has a colorful design and a structure that facilitates its use. The interface is quite intuitive and all the configuration and campaign creation options are well defined.

You do not have to waste time reviewing the section of creation of email campaigns, because even if you have little knowledge about editing and personalization of images, you can create quality campaigns that attract your future customers.

You can send follow-up emails that help you to keep track of how a campaign is working and also to know the degree of acceptance and interest of the users in the campaigns that have been created and sent.

Creating forms and lists is also easy and intuitive, these forms help you fill them with data that you consider important and lists to create and divide the devices that you consider most necessary and that you think should be shown to the users in an orderly manner.

What do you dislike?

You can only review the statistics and reports individually, there is no option that allows you to group and create statistics by groups. This limits the analysis of information a little, since sometimes we need the grouped information of several campaigns and several groups of products to see how everything has worked together and having to review each product individually is more laborious.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Design and create campaigns that get your products to a wider audience is very important, since it serves to make your business more profitable and for people to know you more. If you want a tool that helps you create campaigns in a simple way and that those campaigns are of quality you can use Campaign Monitor.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Campaign Monitor has helped us to have a wider database of users, since by sending promotions, newsletters and also campaigns on new products, we have been able to attract more customers and be able to improve business profitability in the area of marketing and sales.

We have not needed to learn to edit nor have we had to spend time so that our campaigns are visually appealing. With this tool we simply get inside their campaign creator and in a few steps we have a totally personalized campaign, adapted to the interests we have in our company and also that is visually attractive for the user, since we manage to give a nice design, Elegant and at the same time professional.

"Easy to Use Email Marketing Tool"

What do you like best?

I like that it empowers you to make extraordinary looking email with no related knowledge or learning coding or building messages. They have a simplified email manufacturer that enables you to rapidly make excellent, responsive, portable well disposed of messages in a simple to utilize interface. Their marketing automation features are also very great and easy to learn

What do you dislike?

The client administration is non-straightforward. Campaign Monitor makes numerous endeavors to concede your assistance demands through pages of FAQs and making it hard to discover their email contact structure. It would seem that they have a bring in line for premium pay clients, be that as it may, I didn't have any issues I expected to get in touch with them for while I had Premium Account.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

This is a great tool very fast and easy to use it helps me to create Campaign in very less time. And the prebuild template is also very useful for me. I also very easily manage the email list.

"Campaign Monitor is excellent but expensive for companies with large audiences"

What do you like best?

I like Campaign Monitor because it allows me to create very attractive newsletters visually, admits to achieve excellent results by sending follow-up emails, they have good personalization and design tools that allow to convince the prospect that the information I have is valuable. Likewise, I can sell information about my brand, training workshops and let me know the schedules, among other important information for our clients. Additionally, it has a catalog of attractive and optimized templates for mobile devices and computers that allow me to work on my follow-up emails with greater ease and convenience, in a few words it is a great tool to satisfy and inform your customers about the benefits of your company

What do you dislike?

I would like to have statistics and tracking by groups but the tool does not allow it, apart from companies that have large audiences we are likely to pay a considerable monthly amount to meet our needs, there are cheaper services for companies with large volumes of customers

Recommendations to others considering the product:

We recommend using it mainly if they have low audience, since if they have a large database of emails, they will have to pay a good amount to cover their needs, otherwise take advantage of 100% all the benefits they offer because they are very useful

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We had a problem with the previous software because our emails always went to the junk mail tray and the tool support never gave us a timely response, let alone a quick solution, which led us to try Campaign Monitor and nowadays we continue to use the tool despite the costly result

"Too Simple"

What do you like best?

It was certainly a user friendly platform, which made for a good experience. It was easy to build out forms (lists) and single emails. The email template feature is also really great. It made our newsletter creation quick and easy.

What do you dislike?

Not a fan of the pricing format. Also, I wish there was a template option for forms. For us we use a similar format for all of our forms (lists), so if there was an option to duplicate a list template that would save LOTS of time. The journey feature is not great. Way TOO simplistic for our needs. If you are first starting out on the nurture/drip/journey path, this may be a good tool for you.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Not a great tool if you are looking for a full-service marketing automation tool

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Marketing Automation - emails, nurtures/drips, list creation, etc.

"Perfect small business ease, professional look & great small business value"

What do you like best?

I love the overall ease of usage, easy and varied template options. The fee structure is a good value for small businesses with a decent sized email list. I ship worldwide, so the worldview option is a really cool feature for me, as is the clicks reports.

What do you dislike?

There's honestly nothing I truly "dislike". Cool tweaks for the future might be things more like in template photo editing options, drag and drop placement in layouts, more varied layout options.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you are looking for a easy to set up & use marketing campaign software system, that is priced right for the small business and has a variety of features & reports included, Campaign Monitor is the email service for you. Simple set up, simple usage, you can even type over old campaigns using a past layout or make edits and updates instead of starting ne each time if you like. Immediate ROI for us as we are an internet retail company and good digital marketing is key for us.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I didn't always have the need for an email service until we grew, but after several years, we built our email list up and have an online retail business, so we needed a service to solve some issues. Campaign Monitor reduced our bounce/spam rate, makes subscribing/unsubscribing much easier (and plugs ins for social media help drive subscribers - nice feature), and visually, we look much more professional now and can feature photos of products much better in our emails now. Cost was a factor in our decision since we are a small business & I feel the value we get for the monthly fee is affordable and worth it!

"An Excellent Email Program!"

What do you like best?

I love the ease of using this email program! Lists are easy to sort and adding in new contacts is a quick process. Things are laid out very well and it doesn't take a lot of work to be able to learn to work with the program easily!

What do you dislike?

I have found that the templates that they have are a bit difficult to work with and maneuver, but overall this is still worth working through because of the upsides of this program.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Take some time to familiarize yourself with the layout of everything. Even just spending 1-2 hours at the beginning of your use will save you lots of time down the road.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It is so much easier to automate my emails with Campaign Monitor. I can easily track analytics, which has been a game changer for my business!

"Not all that I thought it would be"

What do you like best?

It makes email automation easy! I also love that we can apply dynamic content within the email campaigns. That is a game changer. It also makes A/B testing extremely simple.

What do you dislike?

Our customer success managers have been extremely unhelpful. Whenever I try to ask them a question they just send me to support. I’m not really sure what their purpose is because I feel like they know just about as much about email marketing as I do, so I can’t get much out of them.

I hate that you can’t customize the HTML for email campaigns unless you build up the entire email design in HTML.

The social shareability of email campaigns is absolutely dreadful. You can’t customize the social icon buttons at all, there’s no way in the email builder to create social sharing buttons without using a third party link generator, and there’s absolutely no customizability with the social card, so all of our emails look completely unformatted and terrible when shared on social media.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I would consider other options. If you don’t care as much about the customizability within the email builder, don’t need much direction from your customer success manager, and aren’t trying to do anything too complex with segmenting, then Campaign Monitor is a great option for you.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It is helping us immensfully with automation. It’s helped us realize the value in creating welcome campaigns for our subscribers.

Campaign Monitor has also helped us realize the importance of personalization in emails, as well as segmentation.

"Great overall solution for your email marketing campaigns"

What do you like best?

The clean interface and feel of the speed of the entire application is something that makes you like it immediately. Then, the straightforward way of creating campaigns makes the entire process so simple.

Over the years Campaign Monitor added several additions to the main tool such as automation, insights and transactional emails under the same system. They all work seamlessly and provide a great foundation for delivering to-the-point experiences to end users/customers.

What do you dislike?

I would love to have more functionality on the visual editor when creating a newsletter - conditional content based on rules would be a great addition. Also, more complex automation rules would add more complexity to the paths that can be created. For example, if tags were implemented on the system, an external system could update tags for specific contacts based on activities (make purchases, fill in surveys, etc.) and then those tags could fire automation.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you are searching for a great,easy all-around solution for email marketing Campaign Monitor is a total fit.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Campaign Monitor is an easy all around email marketing tool that helps our customers send great newsletters with high deliverability and excellent compatibility with most email clients (web, desktop, and mobile).

The ability to provide separate access to clients under the same system makes it very flexible because essentially it can be marketed as a custom solution for email marketing. As an agency, the option to change the pricing per customer - if wanted - is a great feature.

"Great email builder and trigger emails"

What do you like best?

Templates, email builder, ability to setup popup forms and make personalized follow up emails(as they call it journeys).

What do you dislike?

I think its a bit too expensive.

Another thing, they didn't update their interface styles for more then 6 years. So it looks outdated inside even they add new features and keep it up to date.

And at last, I don't like that they count each subscriber in each list as unique(even it's the same person in 2 lists).

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I think their implementation of the interface is actually the best in easiness. I never stuck for too long to find any feature I need. So, if you are considering it as your first email marketing service, it may be a great choice.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Quickly setup lead funnel on a website with email personalization.

"Finally! The perfect email solution for our organization"

What do you like best?

I love Campaign Monitor allows you to easily design professional quality emails that grab your reader's attention. It does not require a degree in graphic design to make the layout look sharp. We transitioned into this new system very smoothly as we were able to transfer the lists effortlessly.

What do you dislike?

I dislike that we didn't discover this sooner. The marketing of this company seems to be out competed by other major email solutions. I also dislike the foreign transaction fee since the company is international.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

You will not be disappointed. This has been an excellent service.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We use Campaign Monitor to send mass emails to our subscribers concerning upcoming events and happenings at our garden. We have seen an extraordinary response rate. Not sure why, but since we switched over, we are garnering lots of positive feedback.

"Campaign monitor review"

What do you like best?

I find campaign monitor a good platform for business mass email distribution. We have an email database of ~2500 which the campaign monitor software adequately serves. Like any software it takes a while to get your head around the ins and outs of how it works, but once learnt it is relatively user friendly to use.

What do you dislike?

I found campaign monitor a little difficult to learn when first using it. However any software has a learning time associated with it. I find the cost is a little on the expensive side. Our database has just tipped over into the next price bracket which is considerably more expensive that the bracket we were in previously.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Easy distribution of mass email newsletters to customers, and database management

"The best way to create email "

What do you like best?

I love this platform because it allows me to create emails with the full brand and customize everything from fonts and colors to the exact space between the sections so that the email is perfect at the pixel level. On the other hand it is easy to use and allows mobile optamizacion to make your campaigns look great on any device

What do you dislike?

I do not dislike this platform at all since it is excellent and gives the opportunity to create templates for forms as well as having the mails sorted is easy to manage the mailing list

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I recommend Campaign Monitor because it is easy to use and very efficient to create personalized emails, forms with attractive colors to give better volume to other emails

"Easy to use and execute"

What do you like best?

It's extremely easy to set up, especially with apps like Zapier for Wordpress. Every time someone fills out a form on my website, they're automatically subscribed to our email campaign. The campaign is easy and straightforward to set up, and once done it is an automated process. The lists make it easy to see who has recently subscribed and how to contact them. Campaign Monitor is a very important part of our business

What do you dislike?

It would be an improvement if we could see a more accurate geolocator, currently it just tells us countries, if it could narrow it down to cities it would be great. The data we receive is very important and it could be improved upon.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Campaign monitor works with Zapier to autonomously add people who fill out a form on our website to our email campaign. This saves us time and effort and gives us data about who the people who visit our website and download our product are.

"Perfect for crafting and sending newsletters"

What do you like best?

Campaign Monitor is has one of the most comprehensive email builders I've yet to try. It a simple WYSIWYG model, but it works just soo smoothly and effectively, that crafting newsletters to customers become a very easy task. The campaign analytics and subscribers list management is also well done.

What do you dislike?

Sending a mass mail campaign (for example, a newsletter to clients) doesn't happen immediately and sometines go to the promotion tab in the recepients inbox. Although, this is understandably, this is an issue with most email campaign tools.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Campaign Monitor is one of the best email marketing tools on the market. If you looking for one (or even using something else at the moment) - give it a try!

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Sending comprehensive and beatiful newsletter and updates to our clients and subscribers in the easiest way possble.

"Campaign Monitor Review"

What do you like best?

Templates are neat and customizable, but I usually just modified my premise designs.

WSYWIG design works well and quickly.

Personalized segmentation options are very helpful.

Worldview is amazing - it is magical watching people open messages around the globe.

Last, but not least, price - very affordable for my size list of less than 500. And they offer non-profit rates.

What do you dislike?

While segments are very customizable, it is not easy putting clients into these segments, has to be done manually one-by-one (there are shortcuts for adding a new contact).

Recommendations to others considering the product:

It's a good tool when you're starting out with email marketing as it allows for standard sending activities and basic email performance reports. Useful if you do one-off database purchases with stand-alone campaigns. Advanced users will find it limited.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The ability to conduct campaigns, then monitor who opens and activity. This is actionable data which can be transmitted to our sales group.

Send high volume emails to a large number of people in undoubtedly the most innovative automated work that can offer camping monitor, marketing is a tool that is difficult to perform and more by email and with this platform allows editing and integration to be able to do it. It is totally safe and performs A / B tests that certify its quality. It also relieves the load because it contains automated responses immediately to customers. offers good themes for the creation of templates.

With campaing monitor the only problem that I find is because you do not like it? It really is a sophisticated and secure marketing tool that explores various channels of communication through emails and perfect your emails for other contacts that you add as final recipients

Recommendations to others considering the product:

This software has the best email marketing and uses the most sophisticated tools and provides a high volume shipping to many contacts at once. The security and personalization that the platform has with the use of creative templates is excellent.

On the other hand, it may be that filling in the form that you send may be a bit tedious for people who do not want to be filling out data and information for a company or a particular third party.

"Has some quirks, but really user-friendly!"

What do you like best?

I love that Campaign Monitor is intuitive to use and offers a variety of template options. The customization features provide just enough that I can work with my email without screwing it up.

What do you dislike?

One pain point is that there's not a way to merge contact lists or update a contact on all lists at once. When updating contact info, it would be really convenient to know that the change was reflected for multiple lists.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Campaign Monitor helps me create newsletters and send out helpful emails to large lists of contacts. It seems to have a really low rate of ending up in junk mail, which is ideal for obvious reasons! Another benefit is that the payments are per campaign, rather than paying a monthly fee. Some months, we don't need to use it, whereas other months are super busy! And the itemized approach makes it simple to expense to different accounts.

"Great email marketing platform to start with"

What do you like best?

Easy to upload contact lists, easy to create and edit campaigns.

What do you dislike?

Email template editor is awful. Not as bad as say MS Dynamics CRM... But its more difficult than MailChimp. This is mainly my biggest pain point with CM.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Make sure to look at the others that G2 has reviews on. I used MailChimp for many years and while Campaign Monitor is much cheaper than MailChimp, it doesn't stand up to it. CM is a great budget platform to use for outbound email. There are others out there that will do a little more for a few more dollars. Active Campaign is one of those. Overall CM is a good company and easy to work with. They have great support but fall short in only a few areas. Would be a good starting out platform to use.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Solving email marketing automation and updates back into SalesForce. CM allows us to send email without having to resort to using Outlook. Its always surprising to me how many businesses still use Outlook to send outbound marketing email.

While CM's email servers tend to not be as widely accepted by other businesses we market to, their support does do their best to help figure out what went wrong with hard bounces from blocked servers.

List/subscribers are easy to use and add/delete contacts from. Support is very good and responds quickly. Many plugins for other platforms.

I would also point out that the way that campaign stats are presented is not quite there as well. Would like some deeper dive ability to zoom in and out on a campaign.

"Campaign Monitor - Easy for Newbies"

What do you like best?

Campaign Monitor is easy to pick up from the get-go. As a small business, I don't have a lot of time to learn new features or dig into the nitty gritty details of some things. While I like that insights and data are accessible, I need simple to use features in the day to day operations of my business. We spent a bit of time on the front end training just a few members of our staff on the system and now it's pretty easy to use internally.

What do you dislike?

Campaign Monitor is a bit pricier than some other options I originally priced out, but I ultimately landed on their service as they are local to my city and I found the customer service to be sufficient. I'd love to have a bit more access to direct customer support for small issues, but I've been happy with the support I've received in the past - it's just typical that response times are a bit slow.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Campaign Monitor is a useful tool, but you'll need to allow yourself a bit of time to dig into the system to gain the knowledge to use it most properly. With just a bit of time on the front end, you'll be rolling easy for your regularly sent customer emails!

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Never before was I able to have access to detailed insights on open rates, etc. I was wasting money and time sending emails to folks that hadn't opened emails from us in years. We learned to comb through our list to make it more valuable to us in the long run.

"Excellent email builder and so easy to use"

What do you like best?

The ease of creating professional and creative email campaigns in minutes, if you have a few images and copy prepared. The world view is awesome too - being able to see email opened in real time, where and when. I like that you can give emails sent your own name, and email address for replies. Adds a really nice personal touch.

What do you dislike?

It'd be great to have even more control over the design - such as being able to change icon styles, or being able to place social media share buttons in more than one place. Being able to upload images as background styles would be good too.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Try other products alongside this - I come back to Campaign Monitor every time for ease of use.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Being able to send highly professional emails, to say, a list of candidates from a careers fair, at short notice, is great. It provides a great candidate experience and it looks and feels way better than a standard email.

"Capable but limiting"

What do you like best?

I enjoy how easy it is to create A/B testsin CM. With other email designers a duplicate email is created, leaving you with two designs to edit if any additional changes must be made. CM has a clean design and a no-fuss UX design, making things like A/B testing pain free.

What do you dislike?

The design functions are limiting. You can’t achieve too many different layout combinations with the options provided, and emails can look blocky. Other programs allow for small changes, edits to spacing, etc, that CM does not.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

CM makes it easy to create email campaigns to share with my team and send out to our current/potential clients. I feel I can design quickly and efficiently, to the standard we are accustomed in CM. My teammates are impressed and we are able to complete campaigns to a higher quality than we could previously.

"A middle of the road piece of software"

What do you like best?

Campaign Monitor takes no time to pick up and use. The emails you can design look slick, and it comes with the usual features you'd expect.

What do you dislike?

Although easy to get to grips with, if you choose to use an html or block template approach, that's a choice you have to stick to. Unlike other email software, if you want to play with any HTML within the block template approach, it isn't there. Slightly frustrating when you're able to do this with Dotmailer and Mailchimp.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Campaign Monitor supports my outbound marketing, making it a key part of the digital mix. Its ease of use means I can pull together emails in no time to get the creative juices flowing.

"WONDER WHY THE TWO FOUNDERS ARE THE WEALTHIEST IN AUSTRALIA? EASY THEY HAVE DODGY BILLING PRACTICES"

What do you like best?

Not a lot - their customer service is terrible and I would discourage people to go elsewhere

What do you dislike?

Poor Customer Service

Escalated to Head of Customer Service - obviously the poison starts at the top of the Ivory Tower.

Dodgy billing practice

I made a complaint about billing and they even billed me two days after my complaint - then offered to refund that and expected me to be happy!

How they have a rating this high surprises me as my experience has been terrible.

Remember this is now a highly competitive environment with lots of choice - my advice, DO NOT CHOOSE CAMPAIGN MONITOR!

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Use another service - their customer support is terrible - especially at the top of the business.

As the blogger, I feel Campaign Monitor is the best way to promote my blog via E-mail. Before getting into the service of Campaign Monitor I like to use some of the other email marketing but I feel something more with Campaign Monitor. Campaign Monitor really helps me to get some traffic and get some sales by emails.

"First impression counts."

What do you like best?

I like the Campaigner email on boarding process for new companies.We recently signed up to use this for our email marketing campaigns and I must commend the effort put in by the support team at Campaigner email to get us integrated and started on the right footing with this program.

So far so good,I love the level of reporting which Camapaigner email provides as regards our email marketing campaigns, thus ensuring we are aware of simple but vital informations about our campaigns such as email open rate ,click rate ,percentage of unopened emails etc

My favorite feature on Campaigner email so far,is how I am able to schedule newsletters to be sent to our email user base on Saturdays ,which is a work free day ,thus ensuring I do not need to send these emails from home.

What do you dislike?

The layout and aesthetics of Campaigner email can obviously be made to be more intuitive and modern.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We use Campaigner email to provide regular,timely information to our customers and users on a regular basis relatively for very cheap.

"Good"

What do you like best?

I love the overall ease of usage, easy and varied template options. The fee structure is a good value for small businesses with a decent sized email list. I think it ships worldwide, so the worldview option is a really cool feature for me, as is the clicks reports.

What do you dislike?

not much really. Cool tweaks for the future might be things more like in template photo editing options, drag and drop placement in layouts, more varied layout options.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

we look much more professional now and can feature photos of products much better in our emails now. Cost was a factor in our decision since we are a small business & I feel the value we get for the monthly fee is affordable and worth it!I didn't always have the need for an email service until we grew, but after several years, we built our email list up and have an online retail business, so we needed a service to solve some issues. Campaign Monitor reduced our bounce/spam rate, makes subscribing/unsubscribing much easier (and plugs ins for social media help drive subscribers - nice feature), and visually,

"Campaigner email takes our email campaigns "

What do you like best?

Campaign monitor is intuitive and easy to use.I was able to create my first newsletter the very first day it was introduced into my organization.I like the sheer number of email templates I am able to select from,to use for our weekly newsletters.

The best part of Campaigner email for me is how we are able to set email triggers ,depending on the actions of a customer.From when they newly signup for our service,to when they make their first purchase etc More importantly,I must say I am impressed with high level of email deliverability we have experienced with Campaigner email,in contrast to similar products we tried out in time past.

What do you dislike?

Campaigner email is a fantastic email marketing tool.We have used it for the past one year and honestly,it’s been a perfect fit for our marketing plans.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Campaign monitor makes it easy to manage ,measure and effectively measure our email marketing campaigns.Allowing us continuously put our brand in the faces of our leads,past customers and current customers.

"Incredibly easy and intuitive email platform"

What do you like best?

I was able to jump into Campaign Monitor and in a matter of minutes develop a newsletter for my non-profit. It was so simple and seamless. I also like the pay as you go model. I'm only sending to @500 people so the cost is very affordable.

What do you dislike?

I can't think of anything! I've used just about every email platform out there and this is by far the easiest and most intuitive.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I had zero background or training on CM and I was able to jump in and get an email created and deployed within minutes!

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

For my animal rescue, we don't have a lot of extra budget for marketing or PR. Campaign Monitor made it simple to get a communication stream going with our subscribers and it has helped us raise incremental funds when we have a special case or urgent situation. It is a great vehicle for us to reach our community.

"Non-Profit use of Campaign Monitor"

What do you like best?

I enjoy using Campaign monitor because the templates make it easy to use and to send visually appealing e-mails. I also appreciate the analytics Campaign Monitor provides. This helps me to track open rates for the emails we send and to be able to follow up with those who have not opened the email yet.

What do you dislike?

You pay by the number of contacts you have not by the number of contacts you use, so you have to be very diligent about cleaning up your list if you only want to send someone an email once. Also, when trying to integrate plug-ins it can be difficult. We are trying to link our Campaign Monitor with a donation software and the plug-in was complicated and created problems with launching the campaigns we wanted to launch. Also, the lists that Campaign Monitor allows you to create does not allow for people to be included on several lists and they charge you for a person again if you want to add them to several lists.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Create better ways for lists to be created and used. There are many emails I would like to send to all of our lists and I am unable to without clicking through every list to add it to a campaign.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Campaign Monitor allows us to send mass emails with lots of imagery to many people at once. It also allows for drip campaigns to be set up and to help follow up with our contacts.

"Constantly improving"

What do you like best?

I’ve used Campaign Monitor for years and am impressed with the improvements they’ve made to the automation tools and email building wizard. They have a great library of email templates that I use often and it’s easy to see all the analytics for email campaigns.

What do you dislike?

The hardest part of using Campaign Monitor is the list management. It’s not super intuitive to organize your lists- especially if you have a lot and use several email flows across your user base. One other thing is that we have gone through a lot of account reps, which makes it hard when we have an issue.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Campaign Monitor has helped us create an onboarding flow to communicate much more effectively with our new users and help guide them through the process of setting up and using all the software tools we offer.

"The ALMOST perfect platform for email marketing!"

What do you like best?

There are a lot of things that I love about this platform. I used to use Mailchimp for our email campaigns and saw an ad for campaign monitor and gave them a try as they offer journeys. Journeys are something that has cut my time down SO MUCH as Mailchimp does not offer journeys.

Another thing that has made me fall in love with campaign monitor is the fact that the suppressed list is saved regardless if you delete lists you've created or not. You can also upload unsubscribers manually which I had to do as I moved from Mailchimp.

What do you dislike?

The only thing I would recommend is to offer a more visual builder for the email templates. At the moment the way to design your template is to import it as a web file. Sometimes the file is imported and I have to go back and manually edit the code (HTML) to make sure the template is sent looks the way I want it to.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I have definitely solved the problem of having to manually compile contacts that opened/didn't open emails from a campaign with the journey feature.

"Easy to Learn, Easy to Use & Cost Effective "

What do you like best?

Templates! There are around 50 templates available and they all look great and easy to use. This may seem like a low number of templates but from what I've seen from others such as MailChimp, I prefer CM templates.

What do you dislike?

Pricing is a little high compared to others. However, we had a client who has paying over $5,000 a month for just email marketing and with CM, they know pay $1,100 for the unlimited plan. It makes the client happy and us happy, so we don't mind the price.

Also, reporting is pretty basic and support is limited to email only.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

We highly recommend giving Campaign moinitor a free trial! It's interface is excellent and easy to use, templates are straightforward and look good, and you can use certain web fonds in templates, which is great for branding!

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

One of the main things we want to be more efficient on was auto-responding and marketing automation with emails. CM is very easy and you can use data segmentation to ensure relevant groups of people get the right message.

My first time to use campaign monitor was very smooth because they have very detailed videos on how to use the software. It has very easy to use templates which are professional too. it is very easy to sync contacts and emails from an external source

I get errors most of the time trying to make integrations in campaign monitor.

"Campaign monitor makes basic email marketing easy"

What do you like best?

I only use Campaign Monitor really for only basic email marketing campaigns... and they do make it easy! Adding new email lists, adding a new email template (and editing that email template) are all super easy and straightforward tasks. Can't really complain!

What do you dislike?

I wish Campaign Monitor made uploading and managing suppression/black lists easier. Right now it is kind of a buried feature. Also uploading and managing your templates in Campaign monitor can be difficult as well. I wish there was a way I could make a quick edit to the CSS or HTML of one of my templates while editing an email before a send.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Like I said previously, I use Campaign monitor for pretty basic email marketing tasks. So if you are looking for a pretty affordable and easy-to-use email marketing platform, Campaign Monitor is a good choice.

"Easy, seamless!"

What do you like best?

I like that we can take our iPad to trade shows and using the accompanying CM app have our attendees sign up their email accounts, and then every email address is added to a list in our account. It makes sorting through email addresses and targeting out customers so much easier!

What do you dislike?

There isn't a place to insert a PDF, so I have to use another site to create a link for a PDF to insert into emails.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are reaching customers who may not have a physical address. We are in the glass replacement business, and some businesses are done out of trucks. It's also nice to be able to target our areas, for example, when we have a branch move, we can target that area with our lists, versus sending out an email to all 8,000 of our addresses for something that only one city needs to know.

"Gives my small business a big-company look"

What do you like best?

Gives you the ability to preview exactly what your emails to prospects and buyers will look like. Easy to tweak until you get it just right. Good flexibility in text formatting and image inclusion.

What do you dislike?

We needed to have our developer create a custom template from scratch that exactly matched our requirements and gave us the look and flexibility we sought. Occasionally we need his help to tweak format/appearance.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Check whether their templates will meet your needs, or if you will need a developer's assistance.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We need to send customers multiple emails that confirm purchase, provide an estimated ship date, notify that an item has shipped, supply assembly & care instructions, etc. In Campaign Monitor we store a library of these various transactional emails, which are easy to update and to trigger.

"A really good mass mailing solution"

What do you like best?

I've been using Campaign Monitor for about a year and so far I have only positive things to say. It includes every necessary element to enable you sending email marketing campaigns to your clients and subscribers: from mean to collect subscriber emails, to an intuitive newsletter builder complete with decent analytics and campaign statistics. The pricing is fair and the features are worth the tag.

What do you dislike?

Not the most precise email tracking. When you send a campaign it has about 2% of false or no detection for email openings or link tracking. We've discovered this during our tests and it all may depend on the extensions and blockers you're using, so your millage might wary.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

A decent alternative to Elastic Email and similar solutions. Try it out if you need to quickly compose a n email campaign and tune up the results based on the open statistics.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Using Campaign Monitor to carry out marketing campaigns via emails. It has a very comfortable newsletter builder so it saves time on design and a pretty decent (comparatively) email and open tracking.

"I really like the support at Campaign Monitor"

What do you like best?

I like the support the best because when I first started using Campaign Monitor, they provided a library of training videos. These were important because they introduced me to a lot of opportunities within the software.

What do you dislike?

I dislike the pricing as you scale up and need more from the software. When you need to scale up but find a tool that will definitely work, it’s hard to know the right choice.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

There are plenty of great features available in Campaign Monitor. Just be sure that you need the features you are paying for because it can be easy to overpay for features you don’t need or could find elsewhere.

"Campaign Monitor is easy and effective."

What do you like best?

I like how easy it is to import contact lists and how I'm able to add email addresses to the do not contact list if necessary (this ensures that that email address with never receive an email from you). Also, it is easy to manage several campaigns at one time and allows you to send a test email to yourself before launching a campaign.

What do you dislike?

Honestly, there isn't anything integral to Campaign Monitor that I would change. It might be nice to change up the look as it is a bit boring. Also, they recently raised their prices with is disappointing but understandable.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I would definitely recommend Campaign Monitor for those without much experience launching online/email campaigns. It is user friendly and you can also give access to your advertising agency (if applicable) so they can upload the templates for you.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are using this platform to send email campaigns to our patients. This is helpful in increasing our follow-through rates.
