@joanmuschampfagnani I use both MailChimp and Constant Contact, and I also use a 3rd tool, AWeber. It’s a long story. I would recommend any of them. I am a happy customer.
Here’s what I do recommend. Many people make a decision based on price. I say calculate the costs based on where you want you list to be in 6 months and 18 months, and calculate the price at those two points. What may be cheapest at 6 months may be most expensive at 18 months. Moving a list is possible, but quite disruptive.
Do you plan to keep your list below 2,000 with no more than 12,000 emails a month? MailChimp!
Do you need to integrate email with invitations to events (paid or free)? Constant Contact!
Do you have a membership site that you must integrate with? AWeber and MailChimp is starting to do that, also.
Check out the email templates. Make sure you find a template that you like and you feel you can customize to suit your business. Can you do HTML coding? That levels the playing field between them.
Do you need good training on how to use the email service? Check out the training offered by each one.
Do you need training on the bigger picture of marketing your business? Constant Contact!
Hope this helps.
