The Best Alternative to Mailchimp: Benchmark Email

One of the worst decisions a marketer can
make is to select a tool that doesn’t provide
what is needed or overpay for software loaded
with unnecessary bells and whistles.


Not every email marketer wants or needs the same thing.

When it comes down to goals, capacity, and budget, some opt for a full-service suite while others prefer a simple, affordable tool that offers the basics. So, to eliminate the confusion, over-spending, heartache, and time wasted, we’re breaking down why Benchmark Email is the best alternative to Mailchimp.
