Sometimes creativity is lacking in me and that is where Cakemail comes in and saves the day. I am glad that I can receive creative help from this awesome brand. The pricing is very affordable, in my opinion. It makes this platform a no-brainer!

ConvertKit

It is perfect for artists and content creators. It is perfect for service based providers who want to house their potential leads. Entry level entrepreneurs can also benefit. It is not an all in one type of platform, but it is useful for list building and setting up automation. If you have less than 1K subscribers, this is the route to go until you need to use automation. Then, just feel free to upgrade.

Cons

Cakemail

  • An external package – like PHP support – Cake's component doesn't have that.
  • I'd like to be able to view my user click rate and click frequency at the same time, to be able to compare it – they don't offer that.
  • There's always room for improvement – but what Cakemail does well, it does very, very well.

ConvertKit

  • When I first started using ConvertKit, I found it hard to create a landing page. I am pretty technical but when I had to customize my page using HTML, I got lost. I thought I could get up and running within an hour (build the page, create the list, and set up automation), but I soon realized I had to upgrade to use automation and setting up took me more than 3 hours. The learning curve had me stuck. I got frustrated and reached out to support.
  • ConvertKit is not for a non-tech person. There are not enough templates to get up and running within an hour.
  • ConvertKit is simply email marketing and landing pages for list building. It could offer a little more.
  • The analytics can be a bit more in depth.

    Cakemail

    I have used other email platforms before, but I think Cakemail is easier to use AND provides you with templates. For the other products I have tested out, you had to create your own templates from scratch. I like the ability to create from scratch, but on days where you lack the time or creativity, there are templates ready to go for you
