Proof, meet pudding: Soapbox Mailer for Salesforce v MailChimp

Still got your spoon from yesterday’s Constant Contact taste test? Good because it’s time to dig in to a second price comparison between Soapbox Mailer for Salesforce and another email marketing service.

Today’s flavor: MailChimp.

We freely admit this without shame: we dig the monkey. He’s cute and he’s iconic and his expression is an elusive mix of simian playfulness with letter carrier determination. Better yet, he’s more than a pretty face. He reps a fine email marketing service.

But how much does tossing your email marketing missives into his virtual sack cost you in comparison with Soapbox Mailer for Salesforce? As with yesterday, we’ll assume you have a list of 10,000 email addresses and you send five emails a month to that list. The monkey offers a range of pricing plans so we’ll keep it simple and ignore the Pay As You Go and High Volume plans in favor of the Monthly Plan which is the most advantageous in this scenario. We’ll also account for the 15% discount MailChimp gives to non-profits and see if the proof is, indeed, in this pudding as well.
