MailChimp vs ToutApp: What are the differences?
Developers describe MailChimp as "Easy email newsletters". MailChimp helps you design email newsletters, share them on social networks, integrate with services you already use, and track your results. It's like your own personal publishing platform. On the other hand, ToutApp is detailed as "Upgrade your Email to Business Class". Tout takes the guesswork out of your business emails by giving you real-time stats on whether your Email has been viewed and whether anyone has clicked on your link.
MailChimp and ToutApp can be primarily classified as "Email Marketing" tools.
Some of the features offered by MailChimp are:
- Facebook Integration
- AutoConnect Templates
- Full Featured API
On the other hand, ToutApp provides the following key features:
- Write Effective Sales Emails- See how Tout fits into Gmail/Outlook to help you write your emails faster.
- Track Emails & Presentations- Know exactly what happens after you hit "Send" on your daily emails.
- Streamline with Templates- Stop re-writing the same emails over and over. Let ToutApp do the work so you can focus on personalizing the email.

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.
At zerotoherojs.com there are two kinds of mailing that I send.
- Important system emails.
- 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.
MailChimp is used to provision our newsletters to our customers. To outsource the Email traffic its a good choice for the quality and services they provide.
Top-of-funnel email campaigns. Email communication with people who exist outside of our core automated systems (aka outside of our digital journey).
We use MailChimp for collecting signups on landing pages, our main app, for drip campaigns, and to send updates to users.
