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.

Vision6 reviews

Love using Vision6 for so many reasons. It's easy to use and intutive yet sophisticated at the samme time. In particular the advanced automation and data management features set it apart from competitiors in the market.

- Lisa R.

Easy to setup, use and customise. Australian software means it's great for billing and invoicing, budgetting, data stored in Australia, and local support.

- Cameron R. Head of Products and Innovation

I feel like you need a degree to make automation work for you. Its great functionality but underutilised because it can get complicated. While pricing is competitive, it is still a bit more expensive then some others. The email drop and drag editor is great but i think it can be improved a bit so we can get a bit more creative without having to ask a coder to assist.

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."

Vision6

Pros
I like being able to send my clients a nice looking email, that is still from me but easier to manage
Its also great to be see who is opening my emails and when
Very responsive and professional team
I have used Mailchimp and Convert kit before will recommend Vision 6 any day
Easy for anyone to pick up and use
New staff can start using with short training and learning on the job
It uses SMS to reach out to people and every message is like a campaign
You can save the templates and constantly update and make them appealing with ease."

Cons
Sometimes the editor produces weird results particularly when text is pasted into it
It would seem that the extra HTML buried in Word text isn't filtered out when pasted
For non IT people sometimes understanding the various formats (eg HTML etc) can be difficult
We moved to marketto last year to send out emails and it's been even worse
I no longer do this in my job role but we have changed to a Microsoft product to send out our newsletters
It may not look fancy on screen from a display point of view , but the average person using your system is flying blind when they first sign up, pressure is on to present to management/boss."
