We’ve been using MailChimp since I started here. They've been using it the whole time. We’re just about to switch to Campaign Monitor. I’m excited to have more design capabilities. You can really create more beautiful emails in Campaign Monitor. MailChimp is really great when you’re getting started and growing, but at a certain point when your list is large enough, it becomes hard to manage having so many lists and not as many advanced segmentation options. We found Campaign Monitor by doing research and talking to the team about different email providers and also asking those in the media industry with years of experience. In the end, Campaign Monitor was recommended by Neha, our COO who had used it at a previous company. Campaign Monitor came out on top for its design capability after doing a pricing comparison. Editors and designers can get right in there and in terms of being able to segment, it’s better as well. MailChimp is broken up into different lists. Campaign Monitor is one master list where you can create tags and groups that allow you to get more interesting in terms of who I'm going to send an email to.

Campaign Monitor doesn’t have as many API integrations as MailChimp, but the templates are more customizable and designer friendly.

We are using MailChimp at the moment, but as we grow we might move on to something else. We enjoy Campaign Monitor as we are very design-focused, and the platform provides more opportunities to customize email and brand content to align with our design point-of-view.
