I would like to welcome those who are visiting for the first time and thank the ones who follow this site. If you remember from a few months ago, I wrote an article on Email Marketing, talking about the importance of establishing an email marketing presence. Email isn’t going away and it’s not dying anytime soon.

Emailing marketing is probably the most inexpensive marketing that you can do and when I say inexpensive, I mean free. It’s not going to cost you anything to get on this banwagon. You would be doing yourself a disservice by not making use of this.

Mailchimp review

Mailchimp was started as a side project in 2001 by Mark Armstrong, Ben Chestnut, and Dan Kurzius that rapidly grew a following. This project went from the side burner to main industry, providing options to small business, that before was only available to big businesses. Giving people with bootstrap budgets the ability to start email marketing.

I’ve personally been using this product for 2 months and have been fully satisfied, making use of its email management system to keep track of all my followers that want to keep in touch. Getting started was a simple as 1-2-3.

All you need to get started is a physical address, organization name and details, and website (if you don’t have a company page, you can enter a Facebook or Twitter page, or a personal page or blog). If you have been following me along with my website, you should already have a personal page or blog going. You’ll also have the opportunity to upload a profile photo and to subscribe to MailChimp’s series of “Getting Started” emails if you wish.

You’ll also have the opportunity to upload a profile photo and to subscribe to MailChimp’s series of “Getting Started” emails if you wish. Having that personal touch is importance so your followers can see that your human and not some kind of advertisement bot.

PROS/CONS

Ease of use
It’s free to start

Cons

WHO IT IS FOR

It’s for the small business start-ups that are working on a bootstrap budget. Email marketing has been around for decades and prior to MailChimp, only big business was able to make use of it. Mailchimp has provided everyone with the ability to market through email.

SUPPORT

Though they do rely mostly on their website database to help users, they do have a 24/7 online chat support and an email that you can use to get help.

Mailchimp pricing

They have a pay as you go plan for users that are growing, but it can become pricey.

  • At $0.03 per email
  • 300 Emails – $9
  • 1,000 Emails – $30
  • 2,000 Emails – $60
  • At $0.02 per email
    • 5,000 Emails – $100
    • 7,500 Emails – $150

Sooner or later, you will just have to go for a paid plan.

  • 1001-1500 subscribers: $20
  • 1501-2000 subscribers: $25
  • 2001-2500 subscribers: $30

  1. Hi Nathan, I like your site. Your review of Mailchimp is a positive one. Are you saying there is no monthly subscription ? But you pay as you go ? So you only pay when you send the emails out, at about 3 cents per name. Bit disappointing about the support shortcomings, but is it crucial ? This looks a lot more cost-effective than other competitors when you are just starting out, so I reckon overall it is worth using mailchimp. Thanks again. Best wishes, Chris

    1. Thank you for your comment, Mailchimp has a pay as you go though if ever you get to that point I do recommend you go to a monthly subsription. Mail chimp is a great way to get into email marketing when you first start up.

  2. Hi,
    Thank you for this review, I agree that Mailchimp is a great place to start your journey into email marketing. The free option is user-friendly and you don’t need to start paying until you have over a certain number of subscribers, by the time you reach this number you should be making a steady income, certainly enough to invest into your growing business and keep growing.

    Keep up the great work.

    1. absolutely, mailchimp is free to start and they provide for you a very good system to organize your followers. Email marketing is one of those things that should not be put on the back burner, but on the forefront of your Online Marketing strategies.

  3. I work in a call center so I don’t consider email support as that much of a “con” Due to long wait times you might never get through to someone to assist you.

    And when you do get someone on the line a lot of times you won’t get the considered response you would get by email.

    1. Yes, I can see how the response time of a call center can be slow, email is very personable and you can be more descriptive when writing out your thoughts. Thank you for very much for sharing your story.

  4. Hi, thank you for sharing that review, it was very informative. I had not ever heard of Mailchimp and it seems like it would be a good place to start email marketing. It would definitely save a lot of time and effort! So if you only have a few subscribers are your emails completely free?

    Thanks, Jess

    1. I believe it’s up to 2,000 subscribers without a auto-responder. Though in the beginning of any Online business, you really need to put your own personal touch. I use mailchimp in addition to my website as a way to keep my subscribers in the loop every week when I create posts.
