MailCherry is an application that was created and is developed by a Greek company called w3. w3 specializes in web design and online marketing applications. w3 supports other applications in the customer management and marketing space like w3 CMS and RestOnline.
MailCherry is mainly different from other apps in that they only charge by campaign instead of charging a monthly subscription or other fees. This is particularly useful for those who are just starting to build their email lists and want to explore an email marketing campaign's capabilities but aren't necessarily ready to blast everyone yet. In addition, MailCherry is very well designed and has a professional appearance. Finally, MailCherry doesn't force its brand and logo or links onto its user's emails giving them an even more professional look.
MailCherry's user interface is very easy to use and is offered in a number of different languages. Users can create subscriber lists, email newsletters, campaigns and do all of the pre-work before they actually need to pay MailCherry for anything. While MailCherry does offer a demo account, registering for a MailCherry account requires the user to complete a customer brief, which is a bit time consuming.
The registration process for MailCherry is pretty strange. Interested users can log onto MailCherry and play around with their features through its demo account. However, for those looking to setup their own account a possibly purchase from MailCherry a campaign, they are asked to complete a customer brief .PDF and to send that to the company. This is about a 3-page .PDF of many questions about the user's intent of using the application and their business plans. This seemed a bit intrusive an inconvenient, but we are assuming that once it is completed that MailCherry would send these users their own login and password.
MailCherry only charges per campaign. There is no monthly, registration or other hidden costs. There are five different campaign packages available. In fact, users can create and test a campaign with MailCherry and send it to up to 5 recipients and this is still completely free. They start with the Basic package which costs at €14,40 and supports up to 1,000 subscribers. Next is the Basic+ package which costs €28,80 and supports 2,500 subscribers. Next is the Pro package which costs €52,80 and supports 5,000 subscribers. Next is the Pro+ package which is €100,80 and supports 10,000 subscribers. Lastly, there is an Ultimate package and it costs €244,80 and supports 25,000 subscribers.
MailCherry seems like a solid application and may be a viable solution for many small businesses or freelancers who rely on email marketing to get their message and product exposure. However, MailCherry's sign up process is a bit disconcerting and time consuming and it makes this a difficult product to really recommend to anyone since it is such an inconvenience and obtrusive.
