We use MailChimp to communicate with third parties to announce new features to our products or other important corporate news.

MailChimp is good--we integrated it with Wufoo. The segmentation of the emails is a little challenging.

With MailChimp, we take care of newsletters and product updates. We use Zapier to hook all the new sign-ups to it. It works well, but the only downside is that if you scale up, the price goes up.

MailChimp - Best Email Marketing Tools for Startups

MailChimp is an email marketing solution that helps you run effective email campaigns and send newsletters. With a clear focus on ease of use, MailChimp streamlines complicated workflows into simple tasks, like sending automated, segmented emails or keeping detailed records about specific customers. The tool also offers advanced reporting options that help you monitor sales, website activity and revenue. MailChimp keeps its prices low, so it comes as no surprise that it’s the most commonly used email marketing software among startups.

How startups use MailChimp?

MailChimp is used by a wide variety of companies across many industries, but it is especially popular among smaller, early-stage startups with less complex email marketing needs who appreciate MailChimp’s simplicity.

How much does MailChimp cost?

MailChimp’s initial plan is free, letting you send 12,000 emails each month to a recipient base of 2,000 people. However, once you grow past either of those benchmarks, you must purchase a monthly package. A basic package starts out at $10 per month and grows from there, but if you’re uncomfortable with a monthly fee, you can also choose to pay per email--from $0.03 to a fraction of a penny per email, depending on how many bulk credits you purchase.
