Comments: We have used Real Magnet for nearly 5 years, and it has been a great experience. I have found the interface to be intuitive and the platform to be unflinchingly reliable. Further, RM's template creation tools, database integrations, and array of reporting options have provided great value. Of equal importance, support staff and developers are highly responsive and adaptable to our changing needs.

Comments: We have used Real Magnet for seven or eight years and have found the platform to be reliable, flexible and responsive. When were facing deliverability challenges with a major provider, their team worked hard to help us improve that ... And at the same time, small details are always addressed quickly at support. The flexibility of templates for inexperienced users and the ability to import raw code for others suits our needs perfectly.

Comments: Our organization has used Real Magnet (RM) for more than a decade and I personally have 4 plus years experience with the software. Its CMS is intuitive and straightforward. RM also hosts numerous training sessions to help beginners learn the basics. I took advantage of these when I first switched careers from government relations to communications. Their staff is also extremely helpful and patient. I can attest that they are always doing their best to find solutions to our organization's challenges.

Comments: As a DC association insider, I hear all the rumors about Real Magnet. Having been their (very happy) client for several years, I am uniquely positioned to set the record straight. So, here are the answers to your burning questions.

Q. Are there really zombie spam trapper bots who will devour your online reputation?
A. TRUE. There are. And Real Magnet (RM) will slay them for you.

Q. Is it true that RM employees never sleep?
A. Hard to say. They answer the phone whenever I call, so I'm inclined to believe this one.

Q. Will there be a tribute to RM at this year's Super Bowl?
A. False. That honor goes to David Bowie, but you may hear his music if you sign up for RMUG 2016!

Q. Are Canadians really different from the rest of us?
A. TRUE. And if you don't know how, you better ask RM before you send out any big mailings.

Q. Is RM idiot-proof?
A. True... I've tested this personally.

Q. Do you need to stay up nights worrying about deliverability issues?
A. FALSE. Let the non-sleeping RM employees do that for you!

Q. Is Catherine Curtin a direct descendant of Jesus Christ?
A. Cannot confirm or deny, but she has saved me more than once!

Comments: Magnet Mail's email marketing solution is easy-to-use for both expert designers and novices. We can create templates that can be reused as needed, saving us valuable time, and we have the flexibility to design one-of-a-kind emails should we need to do so. They also offer an enterprise-level solution that's ideal for a large company like ours, giving us the ability to create multiple accounts for various business lines and provide access (at varying levels) to numerous employees. Nonetheless, there are improvements that could be made, such as making responsive email templates and streamlining the back-end processes of creating, sending and tracking an email.

Comments: I have never worked with a company that is committed to customer service as Real Magnet. When you sign up with them, you get a cutting-edge, adaptable toolkit that makes novices feel comfortable and yet has the depth and range of options that allows for sophisticated marketing at the highest level. But what really makes the difference is that they respond in real time, always have the answers or find them right away, and are always upbeat. Because they basically idiot-proof their system, you won't make mistakes like sending the same message to the same group twice, but when the odd mistake happens or you can't figure out how why a campaign doesn't seem to be performing, Real Magnet will be at your side instantly and keep you looking good for your boss.

Comments: I lead the survey research group at a large trade association in Washington DC. In 2006, we made the strategic decision to switch from paper-based surveys to online surveys, and chose MagnetMail to be our platform and partner in the new adventure. After a not-too-long learning curve, my staff and I became expert users of the software and utilize it every working day. Over the years, I have made several recommendations to key staff at MM, and they have been more than willing to listen and create the extra tools/features that I was looking for. MM is also very cost-effective - it will help you collect survey data in real-time for a fee that will fit your budget.

They offer training sessions with our team to ensure every user understands the functionality of the software as they will use it. They suggest additional solutions without being pushy. Best of all, they listen to concerns with an open mind - implementing changes in the software based on customer feedback as appropriate.

Real Magnet is a communication platform software solution that continues to evolve to meet our business' changing needs. It's safe to say I'm a fan - I truly value our partnership.

Comments: For more than 12 years, we have been proud to partner with Real Magnet. Their email platform helped our organization expand our reach with our members and customers and their foray into Marketing Automation has completely streamlined how we deliver emails to our members, saving us an incredible amount of time and delivering most importantly the data we need to determine campaign success.

Best of all - their customer service is truly unparalleled. Rarely have I seen an organization assign a client services person directly to you, even making an unsolicited phone call to touch base and make suggestions on how you can use their products to their fullest potential. You'll never get back a "we can't do that for you", you'll always get back a "let's see how we can make that happen for you". One of our most valued and well-used vendors.

Comments: We've been working with Real Magnet for more than 10 years. Their customer service and technical support cannot be matched.

Their technical team worked seamlessly with ours to help us customize our systems and leverage theirs. That is the mark of a true service partner.

Comments: The new tool balances ease of use with enough creativity for my needs. As a chapter director of a membership organization, I am not an email expert so I count on Real Magnet to help us be effective in reaching our members. Mike Colavita, my rep, is highly responsive to my needs. The deliverability team has also helped us keep our emails in member in-boxes. I value the annual training session. I would welcome an opportunity to utilize additional services but the contract with the global membership group does not provide the flexibility for billing chapters individually. In summary, I'm satisfied with Real Magnet

Comments: We have been using Real Magnet for 6+ years for all our Association emails that we send out to members and we have had a great experience. The deliverability is great. They are constantly improving the product and offering new services to make our lives easier and if there is ever an issue or a change we need to have made, they are responsive. We do not use the automated features and links to our AMS, but the upload tool is easy to keep lists up to date for all our email needs. Having attended one of their conferences, I can say they are a great team of people that put a lot into the product and are excited about things down the pipeline. I would recommend using Real Magnet for your business/association.

Comments: The platform is easy to use and comes with lots of bells and whistles. We have integrated Real Magnet with our company CMS for automated email list updates. This streamlined our workflow greatly. We use the social media component for twitter posts.

We recently added the marketing automation module to our suite of components and are looking forward to automatically reaching out to our members on a regular basis keeping our name and their member benefits in front of them with very little effort on our part. There are many reporting capabilities that we frequently use and many, many more that we have yet to investigate.

In addition to the great platform, the staff at Real Magnet are amazingly knowledgeable, responsive, and a pleasure to work with. I know if I send an email with a question or an issue, it will be answered quickly and with great detail. If we need a conference call to discuss an issue or to learn a new procedure they are always available.

I have worked with many different vendors over the years. Real Magnet is one of my favorites.

Since we started using it Real Magnet has become an integral part of our email marketing strategy. We send 100k+ per month depending on needs, and Real Magnet makes it quick and easy to layout and send messages. Customer service has always been responsive and timely, and we enjoy the advantages of having a dedicated rep. I highly recommend Real Magnet.

Comments: PROS:
1) Support: The support team is fantastic. Regardless if we need help customizing a process, figuring out why an email template isn't rendering correctly, or need tips to increase our deliverability - the Real Magnet team has always come through and exceeded our expectations.

2) Ease of Use: With their new editor, Real Magnet has made creating professional looking email templates a snap for pretty much anyone - no html or css knowledge required.

3) Marketing Automation: The marketing automation does a great job to help anyone get started setting up simple email campaigns. Now diagrams or process flows needed. In fact, for the most common types of campaigns (birthday, new user, lead scoring) Real Magnet already did all the work and you just plug in your lists and email templates.

CONS
1) Integration: Real Magnet doesn't have an integration with NetSuite or some of the conference systems we use. They do have an API and a great support team, so if you have the staff to develop a data feed this might not be an issue for you.

2) Not a list management system: With the great options that the Email Automation opens up, it would be nice to have more options to query the database and create dynamic groups based on recipient criteria.

The integration with Personify is great.
Marketing Automation has been a fantastic feature and has the potential to really make our marketing easier and more trackable.

Con:
My only critique is that it's sometimes not quite as intuitive as I would hope for. I've been using it for more than 15 years between 2 organizations and every so often I still have problems finding what I'm looking for. That being said, I suppose that complexity is bound to increase given the myriad of possibilities available.
