Looks promising but there are some UX issues, for instance the mail builder because design blocks are buggy and there's no option to save the newsletter you are building (you loose it if you click on the wrong button)
Good enough for non experienced users, limiting for seasoned ones.
I been going around robin looking for and paying for other newsletter plugins. This is the best. I just downloaded and activated the plugin. 20 mins later, my newsletter is ready to be sent. The test email worked. WOOT!!
Finally, I can get back to business. Thanks developers! Awesome plugin!
I build websites professionally and recently I have added Targeted Email Campaigns as a crucial marketing service for my clients. There are a lot of managed programs out there (Constant Contact, Send in Blue, etc.) that do a great job, but they can be very expensive and not the best fit for managing medium sized mailing lists (1,000 and up), especially if you want to control your client's mailing lists in house and have the ability to send true HTML emails. Nifty Newsletters Pro plugin is the only one that checks all the boxes.
There are a number of plugins that claim to be "HTML editors", until you paste a coded HTML template into them. They always seem to have formatting issues, except for Nifty Newsletters. Their plugin works every time and if you want to create your own newsletter with their editor and pre-designed templates, you can do a professional looking mailer easily, with little or no experience.
If you need reporting stats on how many responded to each campaign, Nifty Newletters knocks it out of the park. Their metrics are the best... you get a pie chart showing percentages of how many emails were sent, total opens, unique opens and clicks and a list of each with corresponding email addresses. It doesn't get any better than that. It's also very easy to import your mailing list into this plugin if you are using something else and want to upgrade. You have plenty of options for delivering your emails. By creating a free Mailgun account for each client and using Nifty Newsletters Pro, I can send out up to 10,000 emails every month for free. A single annual license runs $20 or you can get the unlimited license, which is perfect for me and all of my clients, at only $60. If you've looked around at all, you know that is by far the best price anywhere for a plugin with all of these features.
Bottom line, this plugin is a staple for my WordPress CMS and I couldn't send out gorgeous HTML emails for my clients (at affordable prices) without the Nifty Newsletter Premium plugin by Sola.
I have tested several Newsletters plugins and this is undoubtedly the most complete, the most friendly and (why not) the most visually pleasing.
Please continue the great work.
The appearance in Outlook is simply awful. No styles at all, pic are rendered in different sizes, the body stretches over the whole mail-window, no font styles are adopted and there is no possibility to fix it somehow.
As most of the people use Outlook for mail-client, this is unacceptable for a newsletter plugin.
I searched for support entries in the forum and saw, that this issue has already been reported but was never solved.
Also the list filter is lost when switching to another page of the subscribers-list and some other small issues.
I deinstalled and switched over to Stefano Lissas newsletter plugin. Top-Handling, Top-Outlook-Appearance. That's your benchmark, guys.
I paid for the pro version, asked a simple question in the wordpress.org support area (I like Q/A to be public so it can help others), and got a response of "we dont help people publicly, you need to use your account to get support"... That's nice! So I go into my account and even use their email support to ask my question, and 8 days later still got no response... The least I could get is "sorry we don't know how to fix this", but nah, it was easier in their mind to just publicly post saying to use private chat, then ignore my private messages... So here you go 'nifty newsletters', your 1 star review that you basically asked for. Don't waste your time on this plugin, just get an integration with Mailchimp, you'll be happier you did 🙂
