Finally, newsletters are multilingual, quick and professional: Create and send automated newsletters or through his WYSIWYG editor.
After a period of time, the author did get back to me and is currently working on a solution to the problem I'm having with the Pro version. The FREE version worked just fine, it was when I paid for the upgrade that it stopped. I have no idea why, but at least the author is trying to resolve the issue.
Having worked as an Emailer for 3 years, this really is a great tool for doing the basics of emailing with multiple segments.
I think the cut off between free and paid version is well-placed - you can get things working to a satisfactory level whilst you list-build and there's nothing 'missing' or limits on the number of people in your subscriber database.
I would look forward to the possibility of combing my subscribers list with my site registered users list, to see more delivery detail, but am not clear yet whether this is an option in Pro.
I love the Mail editor. Once you get a good theme up and running you'll be able to hand off newsletter creation to anyone who can drag and drop. Excellent stuff, almost nothing can go wrong. Even images get resized properly.
Then there's the devs. They listen to you. You tell them you need something, or they could improve something, and they'll either help out immediately, or put it on their to-do list.
Great people, great product and I highly recommend getting the pro license. It puts food on the table of these guys and ensures constant useful updates.
Still has minor bugs with my theme, one is already solved, hopefully their dev crew will help me to solve it too.
So -for me- it is the numero uno newsletter plugin out there!
I have tried several other newsletter programs, some that had more features than this one, but what good are features if they don't work and cause problems? This newsletter program simply works and does a great job with making e-mail design simple to understand! Just drag and drop your newsletter design. Beautifully done.
Suggestions for better program would be:
1.) Allow more than 500 sends at one time. My SMTP server can handle way beyond what is allowed by this program and for a list of 3000 it takes one and half hours to send with my Cron set every 15 minutes. How about allowing the user to choose the volume to send at once? :) I could send the 3000 much much faster if this would be allowed.
2.) View newsletter as page on website not as a "pop-up" over homepage, and allow this page to be shared via social share tools.
3.) Allow for quick duplicating of modules in newsletter editing.
4.) How about the option of Google analytic with newsletters?
5.) Allow an automatic insert of pre-header writing. Although this text can be added manually, it would be quicker and easier to use with a built in function that adds your pre-header writing automatically to the newsletter send.
6.) Allow for offsite signup forms to be placed on other websites, so signups can occur on any site via a html form.
7.) Auto-responder for new signups. :)
8.) KEEP UP THE EXCELLENT WORK! You have a great thing going! Highly recommend this newsletter program.
thnx for this ...
It works well.
I like this newsletter plugin.
This is by far the best free newsletter plugin I have used. It takes minutes to create email templates that your client can fill easily. And the new stats features are more than welcome !
One or two improvements and it would be perfect :
Is there a way we can contribute, besides writing templates ? There's a couple typos in the french translation and I don't know where I can report a bug or something. Are you open to contributions to the core ? If so, how would that work ?
Anyway, keep up the beautiful work !
