    ActiveCampaign is great for anyone who wants loads of flexibility for building automations. They really excel at allowing you do build any automation you want.
    However, because it's slightly more expensive than some other options for email marketing, if you're sending general newsletters or don't need complicated automations, you could go for a cheaper alternative.

    In my opinion, Salesflare is an excellent CRM for small businesses. It includes everything a small business needs to manage leads, deals, and contacts in one convenient location. When a client needs more information or something done, I can quickly record it in their account—perfect for B2B SaaS and small businesses selling B2B in general.

    Pros

    ActiveCampaign

    • Contact management is robust and reliable, and provides all the capabilities I was looking for.
    • Marketing automation takes a little figuring out, but it's easy to learn and easy to use.
    • Deals are highly customizable and incredibly easy to use. I love that you can use it to create all kinds of workflows, not just sales pipelines.
    • Training videos and webinars are top notch. I've learned a lot from them and always appreciate the email notifications when a new video/webinar is available.

    Salesflare

    • Zero learning curve, one-minute setup and dead easy to integrate with complementary tools.
    • Powerful data automation features so everything you do has maximum bottom-line impact.
    • Stellar customer support: response is quick and the team really goes out of their way to solve your specific problems. Up to setting up custom solutions for you.

    Cons

    ActiveCampaign

    • I use the ecommerce feature for email template design and there's been a bug where I can't change the colours of the shopping block to match a theme. Which is annoying in of itself and is actually quite critical but beyond that it would be nice if they could either fix it quickly or keep me up to date on the progress of the fix.
    • It could be a little bit easier to find pricing online.
    • Support isn't online at all times of the day, which is understandable but definitely would be a nice thing to have.

    Salesflare

    • It works wonderfully as a CRM for freelancers, consultants and small teams but feels like it would become more difficult to integrate with larger teams
    • Sometimes have issues with email syncing with missing emails or having to reconnect my email to Salesflare
    • Emails are sent from the app using their own servers, I would prefer to send via my own email system (Gsuite) for better delivery

    ActiveCampaign

    For our clients (Course creators, event hosts & managers, business leaders that have existing marketing in place and want to grow past 6 & 7 figures), we highly recommend ActiveCampaign, because:
    • Broad capabilities - ability to create individual emails to specific segments (the right people) at the right time (predictive sending for the greatest likelihood of conversion) and automated flows so that our clients are generating revenue
    • Integrations - We run ads for our clients, and ActiveCampaign automatically creates dynamic audiences for our social media platforms so that our ads are going to audiences that have just opened or clicked emails (or that follows up with people who haven't engaged). The number of programs that ActiveCampaign connects to makes the marketing a seamless experience for our clients.
    • Visualization of data - With the flow builder, you can see where people are in the process, what tags are being applied overall - makes it so much easier to create email marketing solutions for clients.
    • Reporting - The ability to see specific open, click, and conversion rates in one place.
    • Outstanding customer support - Having the ActiveCampaign team behind you makes it easy to recommend and use it for clients.

    Usability

    ActiveCampaign

    ActiveCampaign has been the easiest marketing automation software we have ever used. They provide tips throughout the entire process of anything you are building. Their support team through LIVE CHAT has been extremely fast and helpful. The monthly meetings provided with the enablement team has helped us through several large and urgent needs.

    The pipeline, which is the core of the platform, is very clear and full of features. On top of that Salesflare added automations, integrations, plugins and emails. You can easily get your leads there from any platform and nurture your leads until you get the deal done. I think any business can benefit from using this sales CRM.

    Reliability and Availability

    ActiveCampaign

    I haven't experienced application errors or unplanned outages at all. Active Campaign is ultra reliable and I would not be using them if that were the case. Also, the helpful emails they send are welcomed and informative, and present very practical tips and guidance for using the platform. They're always demonstrating new features and I'm thankful for that.

    ActiveCampaign

    This might be the best part. The chat support lady offered to make a video to help me solve my problem. I worked in customer service for years and I've never done that, lol. So, if they're offering things like that, I can only imagine that they'd be able to handle most any issue you throw at them.

    Hit them on Chat support, and you are gonna get a response within a few minutes (if not in a few hours, during weekends) But they are gonna keep following with you till they make sure that your query has been resolved. Keep it up!

    Implementation Rating

    Very satisfied with our implementation in our professional medical practice, allowing us to be on top of client service, and not miss out on crucial information and insights. Marketing is often neglected in professional practices and ActiveCampaign solved this problem with aplomb.

    Alternatives Considered

    ActiveCampaign

    I felt like ActiveCampaign had the most features for the value I was expecting. I looked at other reviews just like this to see whether it would meet my needs. I also considered price. As a startup, I wanted to make sure I could have a platform that could grow to what I needed it to be without paying too much at the beginning.

    Salesflare does its own thing compared to the others I've tried. It's unique even though it shares many of the main features a CRM should have. Salesforce Lightning is amazing and feature-packed but can often get overwhelming depending on your use case. I never experience any slight lag or load times with Salesflare. Lightning can sometimes hang depending on your browser etc.

    Scalability

    ActiveCampaign

    My web designer told me about Active Campaign and although I don't recall which platform I had before, I LOVE Active Campaign and its user friendliness. The transition was seamless and I've never had a problem with functionality or server failure.
    Active Campaign provides so many features, and makes it easy for non-techies to maneuver around the site with ease. They capture information and put it in an easy-to-read format.
    At this point, I don't think I'd ever use any other platform!

    Return on Investment

    ActiveCampaign

    • ActiveCampaign saved us thousands of dollars over our previous CRM platform.
    • We are able to track leads through the sales pipeline, seeing exactly how much our efforts are bringing in.
    • We are able to provide better customer service by quickly responding to forms completed on our website no matter the time/day.
    • We can run reports to find areas we may be deficient in marketing or sales, and also see our strengths, which is important to our C Suite.
    • ActiveCampaign Automations save us a significant amount of time.

    • So far, as optimistic as I am about using the CRM, I've seen a short and speedy return on my investment.
    • Our sales process will quickly become more focused and effective. It's part of our operations and saves us time, but we've never tracked the financial impact.
