Mad Mimi | An Affordable Alternative to MailChimp

Mad Mimi Email Marketing

I use MailChimp for my special event and giveaway newsletter that I send out once a week and I find it very simple to use. However, as my subscribers went up so did the price. Currently, I’m paying $75 a month for 5000 to 10,000 subscribers. I was ok with that until I found a much cheaper option. I can’t even remember how I found out about Mad Mimi (maybe I saw it on a blog sidebar?), but I checked out their monthly plans and found that I could save myself $50 a month! That’s a huge savings for me so I knew I had to investigate it further.

While MailChimp allows you to have up to 3000 subscribers for free, once you are over that limit the price increases drastically. In comparison, Mad Mimi only allows you to have 100 subscribers for free, but paid plans are much more affordable.

Here’s what their plans look like:

  • 500 subscribers: $8/month
  • 1000 subscribers: $10/month
  • 2500 subscribers: $14/month
  • 5000 subscribers: $24/month
  • 10000 subscribers: $36/month
  • 15000 subscribers: $49/month
  • 25000 subscribers: $75/month

and the plans go up from their with their top plan costing $699/month for a whopping 350K subscribers!!

Now I’m still new on there and am still figuring my way around it, but so far I like what I see. It was very simple to import my email addresses from MailChimp to Mad Mimi. It’s basically just downloading them from Mail Chimp to a csv file and then uploading them to your list on Mad Mimi.

They also have RSS to Email option for an extra $5 a month and the first 30 days are free. If you are sick of Feedburner or want to bring your costs of your daily newsletter down if you use MailChimp, give Mad Mimi a try.

    I currently use Feedburner and Mail Chimp, but I read about Mad Mini last week and signed up. I’m going to wait until I get back from my summer vacation to make the switch official though.

    I don’t have a newsletter currently, but I am glad to know about Mad Mimi. i figure when the time comes to get one I’d go with Mail Chimp. Nice to see I have another option though!
