Ease of Use

MyNewsletterBuilder received 5 out of 5 stars for Ease of Use. They offer over 1000 email templates with 160 completely customizable themes. Under testing we found their templates to be moderately flexible as they provide up to three columns of text and allow you to edit and replace images on the template. MyNewsletterBuilder offers unlimited image hosting space, which beats our Market Standard of 5 to 10 MB. MyNewsletterBuilder also offers a WYSIWIG editor, which is an email creation tool that shows what the final content of your email campaign will look like to your readers while you are editing it. MyNewsletterBuilder allows you to remove their logo from the footer of your messages for free.

Features

MyNewsletterBuilder doesn’t provide spam checking software or have people approve your emails before they’re sent out, but MyNewsletterBuilder does offer autoresponders that allow you to automatically respond to users once they sign up. You are able to include a footer widget that allows subscribers to easily share your email to 100 different social media sites including Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn. MyNewsletterBuilder does not offer an automatic A/B testing feature, but they do allow you to create an A/B test campaign through Google Analytics. A/B campaigns allow you to fine tune such metrics as the time of day an email is sent out or the subject line in order to receive more reads and clicks. Google Analytics is a tool that tracks the traffic of your readers from your email campaign to (and throughout) your site.

Managing Contacts

MailChimp scored 4 out of 5 stars for Managing Contacts. You can import contacts from Excel and email accounts such as Gmail, Yahoo, and Hotmail, as well as manually cut and paste. You can import contacts from Outlook as a CSV file. MyNewsletterBuilder also automatically removes unsubscribes and bounces from your contact list.

Customer Service

MyNewsletterBuilder received 5 out of 5 stars for Customer Support. They offer phone, live chat, and email support. Phone and live chat support is available Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. EST, and Saturday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. EST. Email support is available 24/7. We found their customer service to be very helpful and informative with no wait time.

Campaign Reports

MyNewsletterBuilder received 5 out of 5 stars for Campaign Reports. Their reports display opens, forwards, bounces, unsubscribes and spam reports, number of clicks, and top performing links. Reports are displayed graphically. You can export them into a spreadsheet, but you can not automatically receive them in an email.

Pricing

MyNewsletterBuilder offers a 250 email, 30-day free trial. They offer both contact-based and email-based pricing. Contact-based pricing is advantageous if you intend to send more than one email per month to the same list of contacts, while email-based pricing may be used if you think your contact size will be variable throughout the pricing period. MyNewsletterBuilder charges $10 per month for 500 contacts, $15 per month for 1000 contacts, and $25 for 2500 contacts. They also charge $10 per month for 500 emails, and $20 per month for 2000 emails.
