Reviews of Litmus
A pricy option for a freelancer or small agency, but Litmus blows the competition away
Comments: Litmus vastly increased my efficiency in building and testing email campaigns and email templates.
I was hesitant to switch to a remote editor as my default, but Litmus' instant screenshot testing completely changed my workflow - compared to the "old school" method of sending in an email, it's nothing short of revolutionary. In addition, the product is constantly being improved and updated, and the community and support around it is fantastic.
The pricing is not freelancer/small agency friendly. I am mildly annoyed by the presence of tabs for features that are not included in my account level - in my view, if I can't use it, I shouldn't see it.
A must-have for email sends
Comments: The platform is very versatile which is great when it comes to design and layout. The platform is easy to use - pretty much anyone can use it no matter how uncomfortable you are with platforms or even if you've never used it before. If you want indepth insights into your emails, deliverability, previews etc, this is a must.
I've used this for almost two years and I've found this to be a vital part of my email campaign strategy. All email clients and apps work differently and the way you design an email in one platform may not translate all that well to email clients, so this is a great way of working out how to optimise your emails.The UI is very clear, easy to use and no jargon. Simply send your email to your litmus address, click on Preview and then you can see all of your emails in different clients/apps/desktop vs mobile in one go. You can include more previews if you need to, but generally you can use the ones included in your basic plan and that covers you as there are so many to view. Depending on your license, you can have your email proofed, analytics for your email and also get recommendations on how to improve your email.
They recently took away their subject line and preview header testing function which I really loved. Plus, it can get a little expensive for this platform, so depending on the size of your organisation, number of emails sent and how experienced you are with email marketing, you do need to take into consideration what level of plan you get. If you're experienced with email marketing (design, layout, optimisation) you probably wouldn't use this as much, but it's still a very useful tool.
"Pro tool for email marketing!"
Comments: We have been benefitting from this software through template QA and creating templates that are responsive enough. Our QA process is powerful and we have different stakeholders. All the email marketing issues have been solved and a great deal of our time has been saved through the usage of this app. Our emails now look as if a designer has designed them. This tool has helped us a lot. For us, email testing was a cumbersome job that has now become a piece of cake. Our whole team was able to save plenty of time through this amazing tool.
Litmus is a very collaborative tool for building templates, sorting out the issues in the code, and implementing responsive templates. Modules can be incorporated. Brand designs and colors can be set up. Plus, the performance of your organization can be evaluated. It also helps users to confirm if their email is going to give a cool look on all devices. The builder part of the app is just mind-blowing.
A live builder option that is currently not available should help a lot. For instance, if one is asking for changes in the code, he should be able to see the changes correspondingly to have a better idea of what could be the best option. Apart from that, many features of Litmus do not fit in our workflow. I can understand that many people might find them useful but part of our payments goes to those features which are not assisting us in any way. So, a solution must be found for such discrepancies.
Robust Business, Product and Services E-commerce Management GURU
Comments: Tremendous and robust B2C interactive mutual engagement and optimum clients satisfaction. E-commerce marketing automation campaign tool.
Multi-device/branding and purposed SSO enables me to reach large number of clients and gain more prospects via large volume outbound emailing. Capability to manage email contact list and maintaining best interactive clients engagement par 24/7/12/365. Availability and affordability is an added advantage.
We are more satisfied with every module it have since it has great impact, nothing to like least.
The best platform available for inbox previews
- Simple, powerful campaign approvals - Easy to use builder - Integrations with ESPs like Emarsys, SFMC, and others - Continually developing new features and enhancing existing ones (send tests directly from Litmus, proofs, convert checklist to builder, access post-rendered HTML, etc.)
- Cannot unsubscribe test email address directly within Litmus. Since we work on hundreds of accounts, we naturally forget to unsubscribe some test addresses. Our test addresses are probably subscribed to 20-30 mailing lists, and it is very time consuming to attempt to unsubscribe from those lists. This results in cluttered checklists and higher than necessary render counts. There should really be a quick unsub option on each checklist. - Spam tests are not quick to set up - Litmus Scope is an essential tool, but it is inconsistent and seems to be a largely ignored feature - No notification system for when campaign approvals are finished
