What is a CMS, or a Content Management System? In short, a Content Management System is web-based or OS based application that provides easy-to-edit templates that reduce time spent on website development and maintenance.
Having used mailchimp, constant contact, and icontact - I find that firedrum has been the easiest to work with, being local they are very responsive and Daniel in support has been amazing; making custom templates for me and cleaning up my databases.
Our Community Theatre has used Firedrum for the past two years. Email marketing is the top way that we communicate with our patrons to inform them of upcoming shows and Firedrum has made it very easy to get information into the hands of our subscribers. The interface is straightforward once you get the hang of their terminology. I have recommended it to several of my clients as well.
I write an e-blast each week and FireDrum has been super easy to use, format, and navigate. In addition I love the useful reports that tell me who is reading, clicking through ,etc. I used to use Constant Contact and it was one nightmare after another. I don't know if it was an incompatibility issue or what but it never worked easily or right. FireDrum does both :) Happy :)
I have worked with Firedrum on various projects for over a year now and I truly could not be more impressed. The entire team is exceptionally responsive and I found them to be a group of true problem solvers (which is what you need in any technological field). Their email marketing tool is robust, easy to use and the white label options they make available are awesome! I can very easily offer Firedrum my highest level of recommendation.
