OutreachPlus – A Feature-Rich Alternative to MailChimp

When comparing OutreachPlus with MailChimp, the biggest differentiators are the price and functionality.

Email marketing is still one of the most-used strategies in digital marketing. With so many tools out there, it’s hard to determine which one fits your needs. At first, MailChimp made email marketing available for people without technical skills. However, as it grew, its prices rose. This made the service less accessible unless you could afford to pay more.

  • MailChimp text formats are very limited.
  • Mailchimp has a  limited number of pre-designed email templates.
  • In MailChimp text editing is cumbersome (e.g. no spell check, some quirks in formatting restrictions). It almost seems like they’re a bit behind the market on that.

4 reasons to pick OutreachPlus over MailChimp

1. Mailchimp does not Provide a Web App whereas OutreachPlus Does Provide

2. You pretty much have to create your own templates.

3. All though they offer a generous freemium plan, the prices get steep pretty quickly once you start needing to increase your email, or subscriber, numbers.

4. Even though Auto Responders are solid, Mailchimp disappoints when it comes to more advanced Automation

With OutreachPlus you get to experience all our features first-hand. You upgrade only when you’re confident to scale.

Benefits of using OutreachPlus over MailChimp

Send emails that instantly appeal to your prospects and achieve higher response rates using our advanced personalization features. The more personalized your emails are, the more likely you will achieve a positive response.

You can automatically include the person’s first name, company name, etc in your emails but you can also add custom fields that are particular to your needs (e.g. interests, hobbies, etc). If you don’t have the information available for all prospects you can set up conditions to automatically display alternative text if the custom field information is not available.

My favorite feature is the ability to review and adjust each individual email before you send it. You probably won’t do this for the bigger lists but when you want to personalize a smaller list even further this is an awesome feature.

When your emails feel personal you get much higher results.

  • Personalized for every prospect
  • Automated merging of personal information
