The BEST email platform EVER!

Everything from the account set up to the concept and design implementation to the functional features and accessibility of use is absolutely AMAZING! *Heart Eyes*

Pros

Absolutely LOVE everything about Flodesk!

Cons

We only wish it was interfaced with adding directly to websites with Squarespace without code. But, since we're still able to integrate and share our email pop up forms + links from Flodesk – It's okay! Perhaps this feature will be made available in the future!

It’s like Canva but for email marketing 🙌

I have set up Flodesk for 5 businesses so far and all of them love it!

Pros

Flodesk is super easy to set up for individuals who are new to email marketing. It’s also one of the most affordable email platforms available, making email accessible for nonprofits and startups.

Cons

I wish there was the ability to add custom fields to forms and the ability to use Flodesk as a contact form for websites.

What an awful experience

I am not one to write negative reviews about a product or service (I never do) but I am sitting here trying to get help from this company to send a weekly email to my subscribers and NOTHING. I have been with mailchimp and was looking for an easy switch. Nope... I went to send out my weekly newsletter (this just happened to be the second email I sent from this program with no issues on the first email) and a pop-up appeared (similar to what other users said here) telling me my account needed to be verified and that this could take up to 48 hours- WHY A MESSAGE LIKE THIS WOULD APPEAR WHEN YOU ARE CLICKING 'SEND', as if you have 48 hours to wait on an email. Nothing when I signed in said 'lists had to be approved so do this first' and I am guessing (because I see all the other reviews) that they are going to ask me to go back to my 25k+ subscribers and get permission in flodesk (even though they all opted in for mailchimp). This is not a simple transition. I suspect if you have no email list and are just starting with them. Or if you send to less than 2k people (not for large businesses) then this software would work.

Best part about the 'business approval' process is that they are asking marketing questions (how did you hear about flodesk), as if this is at all relevant. I am assuming my email will never be going out.
This 'process' I see them writing about in response to the comments of others in the same boat does not exist for other email providers.

Pros

The emails looked beautiful. The templates seemed really easy to use. The text options were amazing.

Cons

I can't send emails, customer service does not help,

email service where you can't send emails lol.

Same thing happened to me as all the others here leaving the 1 star reviews. Clearly more common than they are sharing about.

Biggest con, you can't import lists from other companies (so forget about it if you have a big list), can't email, 'review' process takes forever and ultimately I suspect I will end up like the rest (waiting weeks). Do not at all recommend this company for anyone who doesn't have 48 hours to wait to send an email, or anyone with a relatively big email list.

sleek, modern, and can't wait to see what they roll out next!

I actually tried them a while back but left because there weren't as many bells + whistles as the other email system I'd been using. But after working with that old clunky system for a while, I came BACK to Flodesk. Because it's fresh, modern, sleek, and so EASY to use. It makes my brand look fresh, modern and with the times. And now I've got more people actually reading, clicking, and interacting with my emails.

Pros

It's sleek, modern, beautiful and easy to use. Drag and drop templates with lots of customization available, with a MODERN look. I can't emphasize this part enough. I actually switched over from another email system because while that one had more bells and whistles, it looked old and clunky. And when you've only got 3 seconds to capture someone's attention, Flodesk is a MUCH better fit. it's fresh, modern, and fits my audience so much better.

Cons

It's incredibly important to note that this software is still in BETA-mode. So there is a lot of room for growth/development, and it is close to getting there. My biggest wish is that there were landing pages available that could be used as stand-alone sales pages, and I think that is coming. For now, the landing pages are simple sign-up forms.

Increased my Audience by 10x!

I absolutely love Flodesk. It changed my entire view on the feasibility of email marketing for my type of business. Before Flodesk, email marketing felt overwhelming and almost like a waste of time. Now, I see how impactful it really can be -- especially as I create value funnels to share after speaking engagements. My audience has increased 10x!

Pros

What I love most about Flodesk is their commitment to listening to customer feedback and making updates to their product that improve functionality and accessibility. Not all companies are so eager and open to hearing feedback and Flodesk just feels more... human.

Cons

The only thing on my wish list right now is that Flodesk creates a mobile app in the future.
