Which are the Free trial limitations
Any person can sign up in Doppler and create an account, a Free trial with almost all the features, did you know that? However, it has some limitations you may know before creating an account. Let’s talk about them!
If you try a Doppler-Free account you must know that:
• It expires after 90 days
After that day, you cannot send Campaigns or start new Email Automation flows. Related to this, if you had Scheduled Campaigns ready to be sent after the expiration, they will move to Draft. And if you had Email Automation flows started before, they will be paused.
Don’t panic! You can send Campaigns again and start (or restart) Email Automation flows after buy any Doppler Plan.
• You can import up to 500 Contacts
Need to send Campaigns to more than that? We suggest you take a look at our Plans by Contacts, and choose the perfect one for you. And if you need a bigger one in the future, you can buy it from your Doppler account.
An important detail: the first 500 Contacts can’t be deleted and replaced for another. But purchasing any Plan the #1 limitation won’t be a problem anymore (the account expiration).
• Your Campaigns and Forms will have a Doppler signature
Both Doppler’s Campaign Editor and Doppler’s Forms Editor allow you to personalize every single element with your business “look and like”. However, the Campaigns you’ll send and the Forms you’ll deliver will have a Doppler signature at the footer, with a link.
But relax! At the time you make an upgrade, new Campaigns and/or Forms won’t have it anymore.
• You won’t have the “View Online version” link on drafts Campaigns
Both Doppler Templates and Doppler Campaigns (either with a paid or free account), allow access to a public link to view them in browsers.
However, the free accounts do not allow the possibility of “View Online version” in the draft instance of the Campaign. This is very useful when you are working with your team on the design of a Campaign and you want a colleague to see it without logging into the account.
If you want to have a public link to the drafts managed from your account, you will get it as soon as you sign up for a Premium Plan, regardless of the type and price. Go ahead!
• You cannot do SMS Marketing

To send SMS with Doppler first you need to have a Paid account; then you can configure them easily with this tutorial.
That was all. Hope you take advantage of the Doppler Free trial as much as you can! 🙂
