Cheaper than Mailchimp

Moosend Offers A Free Forever Plan (No Logo)
Moosend grants every new user with a free forever plan for up to 1,000 unique subscribers and unlimited campaigns, so that companies can explore the full potential of Moosend’s platform. In doing so, Moosend brands no logo on any of these email campaigns, so every company’s branding remains immaculate even on a trial period.
This is not the case with MailChimp. MailChimp allows 2,000 subscribers and 12,000 total sends in their free plan. Free plan campaigns carry Mailchimp logo and branded text. One point for Moosend over MailChimp (unless you don’t enjoy 360 email marketing campaigns or thoroughly-designed marketing automation plans).
Unlimited Emails per Contact
With Moosend we never double charge you for your subscribers. You only pay once for each subscriber, regardless of how many lists they belong to. Moosend offers a tier-based billing system based on the number of unique subscribers.
MailChimp on the other hand counts the number of contacts in mailing lists, so you will have to pay twice (or more) for users who belong to multiple mailing lists. One extra point for Moosend that sees subscribers as unique as they are!
Unlimited Mailing Lists
Here we have a tie: both Moosend and MailChimp offer unlimited mailing lists for free across all accounts.
Features to write home about
Powerful email designer, AI subject line checker, transactional email support and awesome automations with pre-built recipes are just the tip of the iceberg.
The Amazing Stories of Editor
Moosend and MailChimp feature great Email Designer features that enable digital marketers to have great designing freedom in their newsletters.
Gorgeous Newsletter Templates
Moosend offers users a growing Template Library, complete with sophisticated designs and responsive templates. This is also the case in MailChimp directories.
Immaculate Email Campaigns
In some paid and premium plans on MailChimp you can test your email across devices. Moosend doesn’t offer this sub-feature.
MailChimp offer advanced segmentation features, such as subscriber profile details (e.g. subscriber age) or behavioral characteristics (e.g. email opened), Moosend adds sophisticated segmentation to the mix. Digital marketers who use Moosend can segment based on user actions on-site, such as filtering out users who visited the checkout page or those who viewed a video on the homepage, and so on.
Timely Transactional Emails
Moosend is a fully-fledged SMTP platform. An SMTP service allows for delivery of notifications to an email recipient. Transactional emails include order, shipping, or delivery confirmation and elicit higher-than-average engagement. Unlike Moosend, MailChimp offers no such capabilities since the demise of its SMTP feature, Mandrill.
While there is no native app in Moosend or MailChimp to send SMS messages, you can customize Moosend’s automations to send SMSs without writing a line of code. Both Moosend and MailChimp have a Zapier integration that enables SMS texting.
Stop leaving your tasks behind with our intelligent automations
Sometimes being on top of things all the time is counterproductive. Automations fill in for you and keep you updated.
The Single Foolproof Automation Builder
Moosend’s versatile automations builder allows for maximum creative freedom. Just like playing with building blocks, drag and drop automation blocks, move them around, delete them altogether. Capture any customer journey and set a trigger and a desired action for it.
Set up far-reaching onboarding sequences to funnel every stage user further down, design insane cart recovery emails or set up VIP segments.
On MailChimp you won’t get as much freedom, as there is no build-from-scratch feature for automations.
Drip Campaign Templates (aka Recipes)
Moosend’s recipes are fully-customizable, preset automated workflows for the most common pains per industry. Activating your onboarding sequence, reaching out to abandoned carts or setting up loyalty schemes and lead scoring, are only a couple fo clicks away. MailChimp, only offers a restricted range of pre-built, non-customizable recipes.
Connect Your 3rd Party CRM System
Extend your customer journeys outside Moosend’s platform. With Moosend, you can notify third party systems when one or more triggers / conditions are met, trigger automations, act on user behavior instances with insane detail (e.g. user viewed a video more than 3 times).
From visitors to users, we record everything and anything. You’re going back to your stress-free self, while Moosend takes care of the paperwork! Moosend tracks and records every journey on your website and assigns it to a user as soon as they sign up!
Understand every customer’s journey – Even for those you don’t know yet
It wouldn’t be much of a service if you couldn’t track how awesome you are!
Use our advanced Tracking Analytics to make informed decisions about your next steps.
Impressive Email Tracking
It starts with an email open. No seriously, it does! Open and click-through rates are probably numbers you want to look at on an hourly basis. Both Moosend and MailChimp offer sophisticated tracking options to track opens, clicks, bounces, complaints etc.
Robust Website Tracking
Track your end-users When it comes to improved performance, website tracking is no exception. On Moosend’s platform you can connect your website and issue, manage events when an end-user performs actions (e.g. page views or purchases). These events can also serve as segmentation or automation material afterwards. For instance you could track and address those who viewed a page more than N times, or trigger an automation when someone purchases from a specific category. As for MailChimp, no such features are available.
Track Custom Events that Matter to You
Does your current platform allow you to track those users that read your new blog post? How about those that viewed your cat video? And can you drive segmentation and run insights with such data? Or trigger a coupon email when, say, someone stays more than 5 seconds on your pricing page?
