Some time ago, I researched the merits of eNewsletter tools for a client, narrowing the choice down to: Constant Contact versus Mail Chimp. I also discovered a few other tools in the process, such as iContact, which looks good but it forces its logo on your newsletter with no removal option.
For the benefit of others seeking a cost-effective and professional solution for external or internal communications, I’m sharing my findings here. (Click on the table to enlarge and then save the file, if desired.) I’ve also included links to various sources I consulted. (Caveat: As this initial research was done in early 2012, some things may have changed. So if you discover any needed updates, please let me know.)
