    CRM Integrations

    FreshSales is just one of many CRM options

    Social Media integrations

    Currently, you cant sync with any social media apps

    Apps 

    There are just 14 apps to choose from

    Plugins

    There's no mention of plugins on the website 

    Automation

    Validity has some automation options, but not many. Most of them are related to optimizing deliverability, like sending emails once a customer passes a trigger, or auto sending emails at a more viable time of day.

    Design and Ease of Use

    The creative side of things is made fairly simple.

    Drag and Drop Interface

    Someone who’s never used a system like this can still perfect their email appearance using the drag and drop editor

    Landing page creator 

    You can use this method to create landing pages

    Email templates 

    Create your own templates by using drag and drop

    Sign up forms within newsletter tool (opt in-opt out process)

    You can casually insert forms anywhere you’d like

    Pricing

    Strangely, there’s no information about the costs of this service on the website. Any attempts to find out the pricing structure just lead you to a ‘product interest’ contact form.

    Customer Service

    You can fill out the above-mentioned form with your desired product and contact details, and you should hear back during business hours, or there's a service number to call: +1 800 961 8205.

    Summary

    Validity has some decent features, and the analysis center is comprehensive and accessible. If you’re interested in these services, you might want to fill out the online form and enquire how much it’ll set you back.

    However, there are more flexible and trustworthy options available that don’t require you to hunt down the costs. For example, Constant Contact offers an email marketing solution to rival this one, with more options for automation and integration, and prices start at just $20.00 per month.
