The ultimate showdown between Sendinblue Vs Mailchimp

Mailchimp Vs Sendinblue

First Let us understand briefly the Two technologies

SENDINBLUE AT A GLANCE:

What they sell | Full-service digital

Marketing platform Website | sendinblue.com

Stats | Founded in 2007. HQ in Paris, with offices in Berlin, Seattle and Delhi

MAILCHIMP AT A GLANCE:

  • What they sell | All in one CRM, 360 degree Digital Marketing platform.

  • Stats | Founded in 2001. HQ in Atlanta, with offices in New York, Chicago and California.
HOW THEY POSITION THEMSELVES:

  • Both the Technologies are SAAS based and used for Marketing. While Sendinblue positions itself as “All your digital tools in one place” on the other Hand Mailchimp positions itself as the “All in one marketing CRM”. Sendinblue offers email, SMS and landing pages, and its automations can be triggered by clicks, opens and site visits. However, it doesn’t offer many tools that small businesses rely on, including site and store builders or custom domain capabilities.

    Mailchimp offers Emails, SMS, Landing pages as well as many advanced features such as Custom domains, Automation in Journey Planner, Social Media Integration with Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. It also provided end-end integration with Google ADS and Google Analytics. Mailchimp does not stop there, it goes above and beyond and provides companies to manage their offline marketing by allowing Postcard service also to the contacts. The Mailchimp Customer Journey is a very easy to build and manage automation system.

  • Sendinblue’s main USP is cheaper pricing. It’s message is “Stop paying more”. Because sendinblue charges by sends, rather than contacts, it can be slightly less expensive for some customers. But the pricing isn’t universally lower. In addition, it simply doesn’t offer as many marketing features as Mailchimp.

    For some customers the difference in pricing is a consideration to choose sendinblue but one of the major drawbacks that we have observed in our tests is poor deliverability of emails going out from Sendinblue. Overall Mailchimp as a 99.9% Delivery rate and it has a much more transparent sending policy with even declaring its server status live for their customers. Click here to see Mailchimp Server Stats.
