Add Subscribe Functionality to Campaigns
I paid for Campaigns and generally would like to have my monthly investor newsletter go out natively from Pipedrive. However, after I paid and began using Campaigns I realized that there is no way to have new people subscribe or opt-in to my Campaign list.
Support informed me that it's possible if I were to create a Web Form. Well, Web Forms would cost me $39 additional per month. I find this to be unconscionable that Pipedrive would offer a Campaigns module that does not have a subscribe button and opt-in functionality.
I came from Mailchimp where it's free for me to send campaigns up to 500 subscribers. Mailchimp not only provides all the same analytics as Pipedrive, it performs slightly on delivery and drafting from what I've experienced so far. Critically, it also provides, for free, Subscribe functionality so that people who want to opt-in to my content are able to.
Until this is resolved, I plan to remain a Mailchimp user and cancel Campaigns. I find the current offering from Pipedrive to be predatory and offensive and I sincerely hope that the development team/management resolves to fix this immediately.
