Now with 7 Whole Grains

I must say, if you aren’t sending newsletters to your clients or readers of your local blogs because you just aren’t that savvy… then you haven’t tried Mad Mimi.

As someone who has used several of the popular brands for email distribution, I’ve often been left wishing for more, and often beggingfor less. Complicated navigation, destructive timeouts when idle, and unbelievably hard to use features- the learning curve just seems ridiculously high for the price. I’ve often felt as if they create complicated systems to leave you shelling out cash for help… seriously.

Not at Mad Mimi

I simply logged in, uploaded my list, created my banner, and off I was. I set up the Ag newsletter in a matter of an hour for the first one and less than 20 minutes on the second. You spend more time researching and collecting content than actually constructing an email.

What About the Price?

I have nothing to say about the price because the entire point of Mad Mimi is to not only simplify your email campaigns, but also to dramatically reduce the insane costs of email campaigning. It virtually costs you peanuts to communicate with your audience.

But since you’re curious, you can send 100 emails a month for free, 5,000 emails at $12.00 a month, all the way up to the gold unlimited at only $199 a month- with no monthly contracts! Like I said, there’s a size to fit all and a price for any budget that leaves you wondering how they pay the bills!

The canvas is complete with editors for text, a simple upload feature for images as well as drag and drop editing. Changing, switching, and adjusting is simple, as well as cloning of your campaign to simplify distribution to new subscribers of your blog. Mad Mimi also comes complete with a new subscriber widget that fits anywhere into your blog or website.


How about throwing away the phone and clicking the ‘chat’ button in the top right corner during business hours where you will typically find Dean ready willing and able to come to your rescue- sometimes I just stop by to say hi, that’s how accessible they are…. seriously! Just tell ’em Agent Genius sent you!

Try Mad Mimi

Like I said, the entire point of Mad Mimi is to break down the walls around email campaigning, and I believe wholeheartedly that they’ve done exactly that. So give it a whirl and be sure to add us to your newsletter even with your local blogs- we’ll feature the best right here on the G.

Wait! What About a Tutorial?

You bet! But you’re going to have to sign up for our newsletter to get it and our other tutorials, reviews, sneak peaks, and special offers to G-Letter Readers! It’s easy, just check the sidebar!

    Always having to break out the calculator for those math problems… lol

    Seriously, I’m reading this cool new AG newsletter in my Inbox. I then run over to my Google Reader and find a new post talking about this nifty little website called MadMimi. Hmmm… Go back to look at newsletter again. Hey, this is from MadMimi. I’m not always the quickest tool in the shed but certainly know how to listen!

    Currently signing up and checking this thing out. As always, thank you AG crew for just being awesome!

    Great find, Benn.

    This one looks like something good for agents to do and it looks simple…

    and thanks Eric!

    It’s hard to beat iContact’s ability to import RSS feeds to auto-generate email newsletters. I do like MadMimi’s simplicity!

    I’ve been waiting patiently for this review for a couple weeks now…

    Everything looks so much more attractive compared to what I’ve been using for the last 2 years, I guess I’ll just have to give it a shot and see. Thanks for the review!

    Hi Brad, sure, to you and I, that’s a neat thing to have- but to an agent who is not tech savvy, that is a bunch of blah blah blah. Breaking down the bar to entry is the job at hand, and Her Madness does that for the beginner and even someone on a higher level, not only in price, but function. You’ll note in my review I said begging for less, and I really think that at times, less really is more…

    I’m adding the rss options to my wish list with Mimi (although I know they’re reading, Hi Gary!) along with something else that I think is missing- spell check? Oversight? Unnecessary?

    Jeff, thanks for your patience, generally, when I review something it cranks right out that same day, but July really kicked us in the teeth and we’re still recovering!

    I hope you like it, and feel free to drop us some feedback!

    The price is right and it’s simple. I’m in! Thanks for this great find Benn!

    Talk about timing. I was just trying, TODAY, to remember what that cool email marketing service that you mentioned before was called. Then, I troll through my RSS reader, and POW!

    Good stuff.

    Just signed up and sent 2 newsletters – so sweet and easy! Thanks for recommending so many great products for agents to use!

    I actually use Mad Mimi with my auction business and the email stat tracks are awesome. I only wish that their flyer design tool was a little more fancy.
