Excellent online newsletter

5.0 6 years ago

Comments: It’s a great online newsletter tool, easy to use and even easier to navigate as a subscriber. It’s become more interactive as the needs of the customers have been heard by customer support.

Pros:

The site is easy to navigate and learn.

Cons:

The limited font and color types could be improved.

iNewsletter - our first online newsletter

4.0 6 years ago

Comments: Customer service is slow and it is impossible to get hold of anyone if you have an urgent problem and the publication deadline is looming. Some suggestions/feedback have been taken on board and resolved, such as the difficulties with printing, and others which have been promised haven't happened yet (i.e. inserting tables). Some 'improvements' are actually a backward move (in my opinion) such as the latest 'gallery' formatting but at last the addition of the 'skinny' option here was welcome.
The overall result looks good, is very easy to amend and republish, and easy to navigate.

Pros:

The end result looks good You can easily insert a large gallery of photos There is no limit to the amount of information that can fit in any one section which allows for last minute additions It is easy to publish/amend/republish

Cons:

You can't insert tables More flexibility with 'moving' pictures around would be good The 'align' option sometimes doesn't work when you select a large body of text - you have to do it by individual paragraphs An option for coloured text for emphasis would be good The printing option has improved but still leaves out pictures/PDF icon attachment and some of the pages print in columns when they're not actually in columns

Review from John Monash Science School

4.0 6 years ago

Comments: It's been fine - it does the job, and is relatively reliable.

Pros:

It is relatively easy and straight-forward to use, and browser-based which means it can be accessed by multiple team members easily.

Cons:

The interface can sometimes be clumsy, and the layout options are limited. It would be great to be able to include items such as tables, buttons, etc.

An excellent product

5.0 5 years ago

Comments: Ease of use, clients love the end result. Easy to read on various devices.

Pros:

We have been using iNewsletter at school for almost three years. It is really easy to use and our school parents love the end result, especially all the photos that we add. The format allows us to insert lots of photos without a problem. A great feature is also the fact that each page is named so parents only need open the pages that are of interest to them. Being able to clone pages from previous editions and update is very easy and a great timesaver. The newsletter link set up once, then each week automatically goes to our website so no need to continually do this. It is very easy for parents to subscribe, they then receive the newsletter as an email as soon as we publish it. One of the features I love best is that if we realise there is an error after publishing, as it is a live document, the error can be corrected and republished and no-one knows, no resending of a new version etc. It's a fantastic product that has made my job easier. Would thoroughly recommend.

Cons:

Sometimes the formatting is a bit restrictive, it is updated and it has improved since we first started using it nearly three years ago.

I love iNewsletter

5.0 6 years ago

Comments: Both the school communities that I produce the newsletter for have provided lots of positive feedback about our newsletters. We believe because it is easily accessible on a phone or computer lots more of our families are actually reading the newsletter than before. This is also due to the fact that we include lots of photos to keep our families interested. We have saved time and paper by not having to print any newsletters at all at either of our schools.

Pros:

The software is really easy to use, the families love that we can include lots of photos and make the newsletter look great. The software has improved since we began using it at the start of 2019 and has more improved options. I've have very rarely experienced any issues with the software when I create the weekly newsletter for the two schools I work at. I really enjoy the process and the creativity. I love how the weekly newsletter automatically uploads to our website without me having to manually upload it each week. Another awesome feature is that the newsletter is live, so if we realise after publishing that there is an error, we can just fix the error and republish and no-one knows, it doesn't have to re send an amended copy to our families.

Cons:

There isn't anything that I don't really like about it. Maybe being able to add 'clip art' could be an improvement, but nothing major is an issue.

Wantirna College

5.0 6 years ago

Comments: I find the support on the package amazing. Every time I have had a problem, support team always answer my questions very quickly. I am very impressed with the service, support team came out and sat with me so I could explain the difficulties I was having with the inserting photos.

Pros:

The package is easy to use. I like that you can just paste and copy text and it goes straight in. It is extremely easy to use.

Cons:

The changes to the photos update isn't very good. Ask discussed with support team they don't really fit well in the area allocated to photos. Also, if you have one column then the photos need to be extremely big to fit the whole photo in which looks silly. I would love to see different font colors, that would be great.

Great for Schools and Nonprofits!

5.0 5 years ago

Comments: The problem that we're solving with iNewsletter is creating more transparency in our school about the new updates and events that are always happening. By using this, we're able to easily reach students and let them know of any important information that they need to know. My overall experience with iNewsletter has been solid and I would reccomend for others to give this a try!

Pros:

iNewsletter is mostly geared towards schools and nonprofits and I think anyone working in either type of work settings would benefit from using this. It's a great tool to reach out to your audience and let them know about updates and any information that they should know. What I like the most about this software definitely has to be how amazing the interface looks! It's very aesthetically pleasing and looks very high quality and professional. As a result, it is more likely to capture the attention of the audience and those receiving these newsletters.

Cons:

While there is a good selection of stock photos, I think that this can be improved and iNewsletter can include more stock photos that would be more appropriate to use for different types of things. Personally, I think many of the stock photos that are included in iNewsletter look too professional or are just sometimes not applicable to what it is that I am looking for. At times like that, I will just upload my own images and use that to create the newsletters.

iNewsletter is fantastic

5.0 6 years ago

Comments: Newsletters are easily accessed by our school community via any device they choose. The time taken to put each one together is now minimal to what it used to be and no more paper copies that get lost in school bags!

Pros:

It is very easy to use for our school newsletter and allows our time to be better utilised with other tasks. We are able to have more than one person working on it, text and photos are easily inserted and moved around, links, video, pdf, etc are also an added bonus to our news items as well. Fantastic

Cons:

We don't have any negatives to speak of...

An outstanding platform for our whole school community communication.

5.0 6 years ago

Comments: Outstanding and have since recommended to no less than 10 colleagues. Love it! I challenge any provider to develop and easier, user friendly experience.

Pros:

Parents simply love the format and ease of readability on all digital platforms. Ease of use for staff contributors. Capacity to edit and republish is a godsend. Google friendly platform. It's a godsend. Love it!

Cons:

No issues whatsoever. Occasionally some issues uploading photos. Only use YouTube so videos have to be converted before embedding.

Happy with the switch to iNewsletter

4.0 6 years ago

Comments: iNewsletter provides me with an easy to use platform for creating and publishing our organisation newsletters. Any issues or questions I've had have been dealt with in a timely manner to my satisfaction. iNewsletter offers a lot for a very small price.

Pros:

iNewsletter provides a clean, professional, easy to use layout. They have a good supply of sample images and the content can be as long or as short as you like. There is little to no formating required and the auto-created email summary highlights the first three articles for you. As a not-for-profit organisation, we always have to look for the best value for money and iNewsletter ticks all the boxes for us. I would happily recommend them to any other organisation looking for a new e-newsletter provider.

Cons:

There isn't an option to create/add tables to the pages; and the analytics is somewhat limited.

One of the best tool for publishing great looking newsletter.

5.0 4 years ago

Comments: For us it was a great experience using and customizing the newsletter is so easy and intuitive it saves a lot of time and the end result is also great quality.

Pros:

It allows for creating newletter very easily. A lot of content can be added to the newsletter and published it is very easy to edit the existing newsletter and republish the same. The must help feature is the ability to edit the live newsletter and it is reflected on the already shared once so no resend is required.

Cons:

Found no specific miss in the product, it is extremely useful. There is just some occasional issue with photo uploads but that's rare and can be managed.

iNewsletter

4.0 6 years ago

Comments: I have enjoyed using iNewsletter - I have also recommended it to 3 other schools who are now either using it or about to be.

Pros:

I like the software as it make our newsletter look professional

Cons:

It can be a bit restrictive - and also I would like to be able to use the columns differently. For example if I have more than one article on a page I would like to be able to start that in a new column, also we have a two week canteen roster - I would like to be able to use two columns and they weeks be even.

Ease of use and a sharp professional look

5.0 6 years ago

Comments: Very positive experience. Ease of constructing a professional newsletter and easy to read once received.

Pros:

It is easy to use and accessible to all levels of computer literacy. It looks professional and invites our community to engage Love the photo gallery feature

Cons:

Conversion to PDF is not a well developed feature. The PDF needs to be as professional and as usable as the web version. Could be more flexible with font, style and colour - to individualise the look
