This service has been a saviour in terms of email marketing. especially if you are just starting out. The plans offered by them are very economical and they also offer a pay as you go plans, which worked the best for me. Talking about the credibility, customer support & campaign reviews : Sendinblue has a good word from major websites and is highly recommended if you are looking to actually deliver your mail to the Inbox and not the spam box. Customer support has been nothing but lovely and amazing, in spite of COVID19 situation, my problems were resolved in a timely manner. Campaigning using SendinBlue is the easiest, I mean I have tried them all MailChimp, ActiveCampaign, but for beginners like SendinBlue gave me enough tools & services FOR FREE, to start my marketing journey. I just cannot express enough how much scalable the free version already is, and the can't stop pouring down all the good features. For Example, the Email Designer/Editor, the kind of freedom and ease of use present is just amazing.

Yes, it has unlimited contacts. But it only allows you to email 300 of them a day before needing to pay. So really, only 300 contacts. It also tries to grab a lot of data from you when you sign up, conveniently hiding the 'skip' button in the corner while pretending that all the fields are required (like phone number and address). Much better free alternatives available.

Sendinblue è un vero alleato per tutti i lavori di elaborazione di moduli e formulari. Ma oltre la presentazione intuitiva, gode di un ottimo servizio clienti sempre pronto a darti una mano. Eccellente!
