Today I'm super excited to announce a massive upgrade coming to your Campaign Monitor account at the end of this month. We're packing a lot of great stuff into this new version, but first the big news...
Campaign Monitor and MailBuild become one
Our goal at Freshview has always been to create the best email marketing software in the world for web designers. Campaign Monitor is great for designers sending for themselves and their clients. MailBuild is great for letting your clients send their own email campaigns. The problem is, many of you have a mix of clients that fall into both categories.
We saw this issue coming a while back, but didn't want to merge the products until we were 100% confident we could do it right. The combined product had to be just as easy to use for any type of designer, whether you're sending campaigns or have 100 clients sending their own. So, we went back to the drawing board, literally.
After lots of sketching, prototyping and passionate discussion, we knew it could be done. For the last 4 months, we've been hard at work bringing the functionality of both products together into a brand new interface. We think you're going to love it. Here's a quick screenshot to whet your appetite.
Instead of going into every detail here in the blog, we've put together a detailed preview site where you can read all about the updates and check out screenshots and screencasts of what's coming.
The merger will be taking place over the weekend starting 9pm on Friday 28th November (US Eastern standard time - see in your own time zone), so both apps will be taken offline for that weekend. We'll still add any new subscribers and track your campaign activity, you just won't be able to access your account until the shiny new version is here on Monday December 1. It's exciting stuff and we can't wait to see you using it.
