Speechify is absolutely brilliant. Growing up with dyslexia this would have made a big difference. I’m so glad to have it today.

Direct Mail reviews

This is a core part of my communication toolkit. While I still use other mailing list platforms for specific purposes, this solves very specific bulk mailing needs.

- Ian G. Producer

It's absolutely helped us to expand our reach. Recipients often comment on how beautiful our emails are. Very satisfying to use and to receive such feedback.

- Magda B. Executive Director

I was looking for a low-cost mail program that was very easy to learn and get up and running. The major issue was getting a zap to work, but once that was working, I was very happy with the result. Likewise, zaps for onsite forms. But the learning curve for actually USING it, and sending emails. Cost per email is very very low - I buy 10K at a time for $99 so one cent each. Pretty good pricing! Delivery is almost instantaneous, and it is fun to watch the responses roll in.

Sendinblue reviews

Emails sent by my website to customers have been consistently sent by Sendinblue since switching. I have tried several other SMTP services, and all have their issues needing attention.

- Mark P. Owner, Marketing Manager, Web Designer, IT Guy

I like Sendinblue because I can import all of my contacts which I can use for marketing/email updates and more. It's very easy to set up and start email campaigns in 2 minutes. I found this tool very quickly to initiate my email campaigns by using a few ready-made templates too. It also gives me a report on how my campaigns performed on that particular list.

- Shiv Kumar G. Project Manager

All in all I am really happy with this software. It is quite easy to use. The customer support is attentive and responsive. The price is competitive.

Pros & cons

Direct Mail

Pros
Excellent, this is so much easier to use than Mail Chimp
I love the fact I can work on campaigns locally on my computer without being online and not in a browser
The lists and address management is simple yet agile
Great program for managing email lists for mac users
It's the perfect scale and I love the ease of understanding the reporting, which becomes of direct benefit for following up and moving between lists."

Cons
You get what you pay for
With their one time payment option you don't get much customer service and you'll need to maintain your own servers
Then thats where you find out the support is AWFUL, as it seems to me theres only 2 people that work there, they refuse to talk on phone, and despite promises when chased up, they don't answer emails
Reporting is limited, there aren't enough ways to compare and contrast
Very hard to export reports and data in bulk
Editing of template could be a bit more flexible
Difficult to understand layout schema."

Sendinblue

Pros
Fantastic contact management/filtering/segmentation
Modern web-tracking/lead-scoring capabilities
The templates are great and easy to choose, with excellent results in all kinds of display - mobile phone, desktop, iPad
I absolutely recommend it
I love that I can start with the free account while getting my business off the ground and then expand when ready and more stable
Overall, I've had a great experience with SendInBlue for what I use it for - it just works seamlessly on the backend of all my websites, delivering the mail flawlessly."

Cons
It's quite a mess and very unpleasant experience
Also the transition between drag&drop and raw HTML is not so direct as I would expect
Initially it was hard to configure the dedicated IP but it was due to our lack of knowledge in IT and misunderstanding with our web host provider
The CRM functions are confusing and a bit limited
The email templates are very limited
I had some problems sending out targeted emails the first few times and had some trouble making all the initial settings."
