SmartSender vs. Mailchimp for Automated Email Marketing

If you are not planning to scale up and increase your sending volumes, Mailchimp will work just fine.
If you are aiming to grow fast and looking for a scalable and affordable platform, switch to SmartSender and enjoy an average increase of 52% in total revenue.

Mailchimp is for sending email.

SmartSender is for increasing your ROI.

SmartSender makes you real money by retaining your customers and engaging your users.

It is built from the ground up for any online platform/service/software which wants to increase the Revenue by automating customer retention & user engagement. 

✔ We have more powerful analytical tools to analyze more data across multiple channels. 

✔ We provide automation tools which are easy to use and customize. 

✔ Our data is real-time. 

✔ Our content is dynamic. 

No Hidden Costs

Unlike other marketing tech solutions, we at SmartSender believe in a straightforward, all-inclusive, pay-as-you-go pricing model.

Many clients believe that Mailchimp is more cost efficient, and on the surface it may appear that way, but once you dig a little bit deeper and look at the Total Cost of Ownership, the picture changes dramatically.

As an example, let’s take a startup that has 10,000 contacts. On SmartSender the cost would be $79.99/mo and on Mailchimp it would be $74.99/mo. Now that we’ve set our starting point, let’s have a closer look at the Total Cost of Ownership:

When the number of your contacts start to grow, your monthly payment on Mailchimp will increase for up to $399+/mo, whereas with SmartSender you are able to add unlimited number of contacts from day one.
