How do we work out the overall scoring and star rating? This is a combination of the in-depth
analysis rating and the user reviews. But it's more than just an average of all the reviews.
We take into account many factors, like the age and number of user reviews.
Excellent reporting features for informed decision making
Plenty of email marketing templates
Plans are flexible and affordable
Low amount of image storage space
Free version doesn't include a lot of 'email sends' per month
No built-in CRM, though one can be integrated

Benchmark’s pricing is more affordable than many of its competitors, even though fees depend on the number of subscribers you have. The platform is simple to use thanks to its intuitive UI, and the email editor is superb. And there are tons of customizable plus flexible templates available.
Advanced automation features help users set up automated campaigns with ease. Using the Automation Pro, you can create trigger-specific emails for things, such as an abandoned cart, review requests, Facebook ad retargeting, etc. The system also provides how-to information to help you get set up.
One drawback with Benchmark is their image storage capacity, which is 10 MB for the Free and Pro plans. But you can host your files elsewhere and link to them from the email content to overcome that limitation. Overall, Benchmark is a capable email marketing solution.
I am happy with the tool and the customer support is always on hand to help out when the occasional issue comes up. I will admit that most things are not an issue but rather a failure on my end to figure something out. The solution is always so easy when
- The email newsletter design is simple to master - Many templates to choose from - The customer support is fast
- Some of the non-core features like landing pages are new so they still need work.

Very easy to use
I have limited email marketing needs and Benchmark has been able to meet them with zero complaints. I will continue to use the service unless something changes for the worse.

I would consider myself a heavy email user even if I do not use all the advanced features. Video is an important part of my marketing strategy and Benchmark supports that feature so I am pleased.
