ActiveCampaign

ActiveCampaign is perfect for teams that want a lightweight, easy to use email software which still has the ability to deeply integrate with your codebase/business logic (through tagging via their API and automations).It strikes the balance nicely between allowing developers and marketers to collaborate --- simply instruct the developers to tag users appropriately in the business logic / code base, and then the marketers can use AC's automations initiated by a tag to come up with whatever complex follow-up they desire (all without bugging the developers again).

Cons

  • Campaign sending has a few too many steps to go through, would love to see more on one page
  • More organizational tools for sent, drafts, and different list emails other than just one level tagging would be great
  • Visual email scheduling for newsletters on a calendar would be a huge improvement to the list style. Drag and drop to reschedule emails would be a godsend!

Alternatives Considered

Backend user experience is much more streamlined and robust than AWeber. AWeber also triggers weird spam wall blocks occasionally when integrating with other system’s automated forms. MailChimp simply doesn’t have the features I need.
