    Review ofMailchimpMailchimp

    I have been using MailChimp and I found it the best choice for Newsletter and building email templates.

    The only annoying part as a developer is when I started using their API through mandrill, The API itself work perfect, but the issue is in the templates.

    I start by creating a template in Mailchimp then submit it to mandrill (this gives me the impression that API is a second citizen in mailchimp, but not a big deal, it works) then I update the template code through Mandrill and here start the problem because you loose the Sync between MailChimp and Mandrill. Mandrill has a very poor template editor and you can't Sync it back to MailChimp to use their greate template editor.

    Everything else is great.

    Campaign Monitor handles the subscriber lists as well as all the transactional emails (the signup welcome email, and the course purchase thank you email). Emails are tracked and edited directly in Campaign Monitor without needing to modify the Rails application, and allow non-tech admins to check email deliveries and reattempt emails.

    At zerotoherojs.com there are two kinds of mailing that I send.

    1. Important system emails.
    2. News and updates.

    I send the important emails using Mailgun, and news and updates using MailChimp.

    For managing your mailing list, and sending occasional newsletters, MailChimp is the best.

    Top-of-funnel email campaigns. Email communication with people who exist outside of our core automated systems (aka outside of our digital journey).
