mailchimp vs getresponse

Features of Email marketing platforms

GetResponse  & Mailchimp are an Email Marketing service that provides you easy Email Creator to Create a Well-designed email without using any code. It also provides you with More than 500 Professional templates that can be used in a go!

Free Trial

GetResponse has full premium features enabled for free and premium users, which allows you to enjoy the full access and gives you clear time to decide whether you should upgrade it or not. Mailchimp on other hand just gives you access for lists with 2,000 subscribers and 12,000 mails. But Mailchimp doesn’t give any support and auto responder to free users, whereas GetResponse is always ready to help and gives you full access. That is my experience at least!

Professional Look

Unlike other Email Marketing services both services have sleek looking templates which give your mail a professional look. GetResponse has a very friendly user interface through which even beginners can design from wide variety of templates library. MailChimp has a good interface too but not as clean as GetResponse.

Responsive Newsletters:

With the introduction of various Smartphones and tablets, Auto Responsiveness has become a major factor that needs to be considered while designing an email. GetResponse templates are designed in a way that they adopt the best good looking way for the Email. Mailchimp also has good autoresponders but harder to manage a bit.

Landing Page Creator

GetResponse allows you to create, publish and host beautiful landing pages for your subscribers within minutes without any requirement of technical skills by its easiest user interface. I did not find this option with MailChimp.

Email Analytics

Both services have in-depth analytics. I don’t use such in-depth option, but, it looks like MailChimp has better overall view of analytics  whereas GetResponse has better segmentation.

Some more Features of GetResponse & MailChimp

GetResponse also provides you many more services that are useful for beginners and also to the Experts in Email marketing.

We always want money saving opportunity with the best service provided. Here if you are wise enough you can get much better service at cheaper rates.

  • GetResponse is providing email newsletters at cheaper rate, where one can use the most professional service experience at just starting from 15$, 25$ plan is the most popular one used by many users with lots of advantages added in it.
  • GetResponse provides you 7 Different plans based on the requirements of the customer ranging from 15$ per month to 450$ per month ranging subscribers from 1,000 to 100,000.
  • Mailchimp provides services at from 10$ to 25$ for small plan, along with three plans included entrepreneur, Growing business & High Volume sender.

If we compare the most popular plan between GetResponse and MailChimp, we can see clearly that GetResponse can be extremely useful in saving extra money. Not only that but it also has certainly much better features and are have very supportive team to help you anytime.

Both of the services are good but I think Mailchimp is a not as good as GetResponse. I think these two platforms are the best to start with for email marketing experts and newbies.
