well-worth its price
Not the cheapest module on the market, but well-worth its price.
For larger stores, the native Magento mailing (and specifically, newsletter emails) becomes obsolete quite soon, and one has to solve it somehow.
For us, MailChimp integration offered by the module was the way out. And the array of other useful features made it really easy for us to manage our NL subscribers.
With a MailChimp and proper segments configuration it is a win-win when you have to deal with massive client data bases.
I have used with Magento CE 188.8.131.52 version. Got a bug while configuration. Support team solved the issue within 24hrs.
* Excellent service and support
* Superb Extension
* Easy installation + Configuration
* No conflict with other modules
We say thanks for the great support and quick responce of your helpdesk.
Good extension for marketing
The functions of the standard magento newsletter are very limited. With Advanced newsletter I finally was able to manage my newsletter easily and fast. Above all, it allows me to create and manage lists. Through integration with Market Segmentation Suite I was able to generate these lists as I have always wanted!
Enrichir la newsletter de base
Ce module vient enrichir les faibles possibilité de la newsletter de base de Magento.
N'hésitez pas ....
Good but need some improvements if not Mailchimp user but just regular Magento
is good to have better control over standard Magento newsletters.
If you are not Mailchimp user and you are not using SMTP server you still have some extra features like:
1. segmentation over the list
2. auto managmment rules for subscribing and unsubscribing
3. ajax popup subscription for visitor
This can be enough for someone. But consider the price and the power of some other AheadWorks extension especially considering that I also bought MSS some features are really missing like:
1. segmenation over the list is not too much usable. It just handles the control of user which newsletter wants to receive and admin to send those letters to them. It will be good to have:
a - nesting segmentations (like groups - for example customer wants to receive the news about presentations in their region - so main segment is 'presentation' and subsegment is his town or region)
b - control of segmentations in variables in newsletter - so admin can write newsletter with dependable variables and text for each segment.
2. guest subscription - if visitor is only a guest he can subsrcribe to the lists. Correct. But then after that he cant change his subscription on the frontend at all. He only can do unsubscribe completely OR do subscription again with the list he wants (but this is not user friendly since nobody can understand that)
3. syncrhonisation between existing users and subscribers in new advanced newsletter is not perfect - meaning that existing telephone numbers and name and lastnames will not be syncrhonized. Only new leads will have that...
4. use of MSS rules - so far Auto managment rules have limited scope of setting the rules. While allmost all other power advanced extensions from AheadWorks have the integration with MSS - this one does not! not just that, existing rules are not very clear. But still GOOD TO HAVE THIS already like this!
There is a good option to make this ext as autoresponder but that you can make it by FollowUp from the AheadWorks so i am suggesting for any more power marketing to buy both, together with MSS.
Excellent value extension - does lots
My main requirement for guests to be able to subscribe to newsletters and give their first/last names, which Magento newsletters do not support. This AW module does support it and it was easy for me to modify my jQuery popup subscription form to use the AW subscription method. Very happy with this module so far and it has a lot of other features that I'm looking forward to using.
Some of the AW extensions are a little expensive (although I still have lots of them :), but this one is really good value.
Great tool for marketing
One of functionalities that magento lacks is sending emails or news letter to clients. This extension helps resolve that problem. And another nice thing about this extension is that you can make segmentations for marketing purpose.
I know a lot of magento users are using MailChimp but this works perfect without using MailChimp, and it is very easy to use.
We already used it in a couple of projects and there seems to be no problem. Moreover very configurable and user friendly.
Really Nice Extension
The best of all is to have all the contacts and email in Database on Admin Panel!!!
Niche based newsletter
this extension gives you the option of targeting your readers. and you can create specific newsletter which will interest them. a great way and simple way to narrow down and market your item efficiently. a must have if you are a email marketer.
Must for email marketing
Great addition to Any magento store. Support is great. Love being able to setup segment! Sync with mail chimp is top notch. Highly recommended!
Good extention, but....
It's a great extension with many usefull features and configurable possibilities. The customer segmentation works very good.
It's still not possible to subscribe to the newsletter when creating an account during the check-out process.
The smtp server must have an username + password, so it can't be used anonymous.
And even worse, it overwrites the existing registration form's template. We could re-style the entire form.
It's still a good extention though.
Great Little Extention
Only really got this to sync everything up with MailChip, but that part of it works brilliantly. Top notch
a must have
Product integration with the store is really cool.
Our client is very satisfied.
Must Have for Marketing Purposes
If you want to run an advanced email newsletter campaign for your ecommerce store, this extension is a must! For proper marketing purposes, segmentation is required and this extension allows your customers to help you segment your list.
If you use Mailchimp to send your newsletter, you will love the tight integration with MailChimp. It is easy to setup and syncs perfectly.
Really pays for itself
Since installing this module, using some of the automatic functionalities, we have increase our mailing list by 25% in just a couple months. It had been holding steady for some time with people subscribing and unsubscribing. So this has really increased our reach, and will continue to do so.
I purchased 3 extension recently, with this being at the bottom of the list of expectations. Ironically, this product is extremely feature rich, and gives you a lot of settings to tweak to your liking, and is actually my favorite. If you are a mail chimp user, this extension is extremely useful.
