Anyone have experience with Mad Mimi?

5 replies
I have been using Aweber for myself and my clients for several years. They are great in most respects... but the ongoing problem is when a client comes to me with a large list, which they have built legitimately over a long period of time, and they want to import it into Aweber.
Everyone on the list has to re-confirm before they can be added.

I usually spin the line that it's a good thing anyway because it will "clean" their list and remove any dead subscribers. But that doesn't satisfy everyone. I have a client now who has asked me to move his list (it's currently with 1shoppingcart and their delivery to the inbox sucks). He doesn't want everyone on the list to have to re-confirm... and I see his point.

This client has heard of Mad Mimi and has asked whether he should move his list there rather than Aweber. I don't know anyone who has used Mad Mimi, so would appreciate any feedback from someone who has.

    I know this is an old post but found it when I was doing some research.

    I have been using Mad Mimi for the past year and do have experience with Aweber as well.

    Your client as you know will be able to use Mad Mimi and import their list without losing anyone. It is actually a lot easier interface to use than Aweber. I have no problem using Aweber myself, but when reviewing products I like to look through the eyes of someone that is non techy as most of my clients are not. My clients find Mad Mimi easier to use and get started than Aweber.

    I wish Mad Mimi had is various premade designs for optin boxes (though some one who knows code can easily design nice forms fast). I also wish when you create custom forms, that you could save that version in Mad Mimi.

    Also, the RSS to Email and Drip Campaigns are an extra $5/mo each.

    However, despite having to pay extra for those features... It still is cheaper regardless of what amount of subscribers you have compared to Aweber.

    If you have a client that does not need one of those features, then the price is even more of a saving.

    Some notable companies in and out of our industry also use them.

    I have not had any issues with delivery rates either.

    There are not a bunch of premade templates for newsletters, rather modules that allow you to easily style your email and drag and drop images, etc.

    As a designer, I personally like this better. It is also easy for a non designer to style as well.

    So the only real downsize I see is there are no templates for the forms and it does not allow you to save your custom form code, if you do decide to have custom fields or styling (save a copy on your computer).

    They are pretty receptive to customer input and their customer service is also great. I am hoping the above negatives will be changed in the near future.

      Have you ever considered private hosted auto responder options for your clients?

      This way they have more control over their list and no reconfirmation required. There are many good one time payment solutions available for hosted auto responders like autoresponderplus and interspire
      Signature Email marketing service , single and double optin accounts. List Hygiene Service Available.
