But at different price, price may be cheaper or costlier from your current SMTP (mailing) partner. To have a better comparison of SMTP pricing, have a look at our pricing depends upon the no. of mail sent.

Mailchimp’s main area of function is to store the leads, track them, send them mail according to campaign and have a record of campaign. Mailchimp is not very good in marketing automation and website’s lead tracking.

The major secret power of Mailchimp is its integration compatibility. Here Mailchimp show it’s 16 years’ experience, and make this application is able to integrate easily with hundreads of other applications. Many of names of application in this list will new for you even, but yeas Mailchimp can integrate with them too.

Go ahead with article and you’ll get the answer of all your doubts and. At the end of article, you’ll found yourself on the very determined, precise and confirm decision. These all was the short introduction of both the application, now start the comparison.

First Have a look on feature list of both oh these platforms:

As we can see both platforms are approx. equal in terms of features but Mailchimp named this bet cause of more fluid integration with lot of application. This vast difference is cause of years of experience. Mailchimp is working in this industry from last 16 years and from its 1st day, they charge for their service. On the other hand, Mautic release first time for public in 2014, and its open source.

I think, now you got the point, Why Mautic vs Mailchimp is meaningful?

Mautic is new, open-source but rich in feature and fully customised. Mailchimp has very limited access to customize it. Experts at MediaPropel push the mautic beyond limits and let you explore a little bit more than its official features and official documentation.

Limitation of Applications (Mautic vs Mailchimp)

In this Globe nothing is perfect, everything has some cons and limitations. These limitation sometimes may intentional and sometimes accidentially or cause of limited knowledge of programmer. Which can be sort out later, by more skilled programmer.

Intentional limitation generally occurs causes of security purpose and its worthful. We too love to have some less feature instead of bundles of insecure feature.

There is listed below some limitation of Mautic:

Mautic is very promising application and if you’ll use it once you found it very useful and handy. But somewhere, few of its features are under improvement which can be consider as its limitation. The Biggest Limitation of Mautic is its integration capability. Mautic can be integrate with approx. most famous CRMs and other Email related applications. Because Mautic is open source application so, if you are aspired to get some help by core developer team then it’s not possible, till you move for hosted version of Mautic, which cost you minimum $99. Here MediaPropel comes into scene and deploy you much better service and support by Mautic experts. Experts at MediaPropel won’t let you feel that you are using an open source application. Even limitation of Mautic that it is Open-Source, get converted into its one major benefits and we push this application beyond the limits and make it more perfect then its official release.

Limitations of Mailchimp:

Mailchimp is one of the market leader and very old and established name but it doesn’t mean this application haven’t any limitation for users. It has, as we already say nothing is perfect in the world. Mailchimp has some limitations like you have very limited access for templates and landing pages. This application let you customize the templates and landing pages but you’ll lack somewhere to get the full access and have to customize them under their defined boundries.

The major limitation of Mailchimp is it’s Terms of usage. This section generally be untouched by customers and we blindly click on “I agree” button. Their term os usage may be harsh for you and let me tell you one thing that they are very strict with their terms and without wasting a second they can suspend your account. You can loose control on your account and in worst case you can loose your list too.

There is the list of content which are prohibited on Mailchimp:

  • Emails offering to sell illegal goods or services
  • Emails that violate CAN-SPAM Laws
  • Pornography/sexually explicit content
  • Escort and dating services
  • Pharmaceutical products
  • Work from home, make money online, and lead generation opportunities
  • Gambling services or products
  • Multi-level marketing
  • Affiliate marketing
  • Credit repair and get out of debt opportunities
  • List brokers or list rental services
  • Selling “Likes” or followers for a social media platform

These are looks very fairly written terms but, sometimes you can get stuck in these. Especially if you are a Blogger, freelancer or your main earning source is Affiliate Marketing. Mailchimp will not even let you send the affiliate link or any money making kind of promotional mail. They will not suspend your account on your first mail, but if someone complaint against you than they will immediately suspend your account. And as I mentioned earlier in worst case you can lose your list too.

Benefits of Mailchimp over Mautic

If you are using self hosted version of Mautic without any good hosting partner than it could be a headache for you instead of ease in Marketing Automation. You should be a skilled IT engineer with proper experience in the field of servers and networking. But at MailChimp there is no headache for servers and all. Here you’ll pay for your plan and rest of the things they will take care of. You can also use Mautic as simple as Mailchimp. For this you have to choose MediaPropel as your Mautic hosting partner and all the things will take care by MediaPropel, even if you’re new with Mautic then Experts at MediaPropel will train you too. Yes, they will not charge you a single penny even extra then your subscription charge.

Benefits of Mautic over Mailchimp

If you are using Mautic hosting at MediaPropel for your marketing automation than you can use it flawlessly without any interruption. Here we are to take care of anything, if there is any problem. As we mentioned in limitation of Mailchimp tab that you can’t send the contents which are marked as prohibited in mailchimp, but in Mautic you can send these kind of contents too through your own mail server. Because here at MediaPropel too you’ll get suspend if we will detect this kind of content in your account or any suspicious activity. But you can create your own mail server and we will setup that here and you are free to send anything.

Undoubtedly, Mailchimp can integrate with each and every CRM and CMS. Afterall they are in the market from last 16 years and Mautic is very fresh in comparison of them. But at which pace Mautic is developing its remarkable and very soon it will stand near to mailchimp.

Page Size is 2.0 Mb and total 89 requests found, which are asking to the server for response.

Here comes the main thing which redirects us or you can say guide us to the website optimization. ‘Performance Insight’:

In performance insight you can see the score on different parameters, and here you can have an idea that where you should improve your website.

Like for example in this test of youtube.com, some sores are really poor and there is room for improvement.

From here you will see the Pingdom Speed test tool summary in detail.

Scroll up a bit and you’ll see that how Pingdom is letting you see the summary data in very detail

Explore Pingdom ‘Content size by domain’ & ‘Requests by domain’ Table

It is not very hard to understand that the first table which is called ‘Content Size by domain’ is showing the size of file or request from the different domain, from where test page is actually fetching.

For open a web page requests actually redirects from the different domain and every redirection is intentionally for a specific cause. The second table shows that how much request is actually generated from every domain.

And here comes finally into ‘Pingdom Speed Test Waterfall”. This is the speciality of Pingdom.

Every speed test tool has their own importance, this is for Pingdom Speed Test Tool. Pingdom gives you a wide data for your test page and Pingdom Waterfall will look like this.

Note: Pingdom waterfall is very explorable and long too. So, we can't explain each and every data of this table. 
But you can have an Idea of how can you get most of it

What is TTFB? And how to find it in Pingdom Speed Test Result

First 3 link(in this case) is showing TTFB (Time to first byte). TTFB is time taking to load the first byte of the whole web page.

You can as per in this waterfall data first URL is “http://youtube.com/”, it means we enter this URL in our web browser and then it automatically converts into “http://www.youtube.com/”, because this was not naked domain.

Naked Domain is the domain which doesn't consist "www" at the starting of their domain name. For eg. "https://domains.google"

And in the third link “https://www.youtube.com/”, because it uses https not http only. There you can see written 61.4 kB, it means on this domain data of this page start downloading. On that moment when the first byte of this 61.4 kB was started downloading, timing from entering the URL into browser till that moment was TTFB. In this case, TTFB was less than 0.1 second, which is very good.

As you already seen in performance insight that some parameters was have poor score, but YouTube is performing exceptionally well.

That’s why this article is existing guys. Every Insight Score for every website is not equally important. Important is the website speed and performance, and that depends upon a lot of things. Pingdom speed test tool is very helpful for your website optimization to achieve a better website performance.

But sometimes the wrong optimization affect adversely and they got worse performance than earlier.

In this waterfall analysis, you can see the use of different colors and Pingdom makes things easy for you. On the top of the waterfall, Pingdom describes the exact meaning of each color and gives you the choice for sorting and filtering.
