We interviewed Bianca van der Ham, Editor in Chief at CityZapper, to find out a bit more about the company’s experience with using Mail Designer. 

What differentiates your business from other competitors on the market?

People can compose their own city guide on our website! They just need to pick the items they like and then a free pdf guide is created. This means they don’t have information they don’t need. Other than that, we have been operating for over 15 years, which means we are one of the leading and oldest websites in this field.

How big of a role does your email newsletter play for your business?

We send our Dutch subscribers a newsletter twice a month. We inform them about nice places to undertake a city break to and, in our Newsflash, we share our favorite stories from the past month. Together with our website and app, the newsletter is a great way to stay in touch with our customers!

What was it that first inspired you to choose Mail Designer?

My colleague saw an article about the application in a magazine about how easy it was to create stunning newsletters. That’s what we were looking for!

What makes you prefer Mail Designer to other email design platforms?

It’s easy to use and makes it possible to create beautiful newsletters. We also really like that it’s so easy to optimize for mobile devices. And the client support is very fast and accurate. It’s a pleasure working with Mail Designer!
