Ceros

Ceros is fantastic for companies who can afford it. It's not ideal for startups who don't have the budget for it. If your company or agency is interested in creating interactive content, but you don't have the skill sets in-house to develop or code them properly, Ceros is for you

MailerLite

MailerLite is fantastic for anyone who is looking to send emails to a lot of people and gather data and analytics of who has read the email, clicked on links, etc. It works well on a company base as well as an individual contractor base.

Pros

Ceros

  • Easy to use and adopt user interface. If you know basic Photoshop, you can use this.
  • Encouraging roadmap - the product has gotten better every year. The company obviously listens to client feedback.
  • Smart, dedicated client team - always checking in, comes with new ideas, generally nice people. We always love our meetings with them!

MailerLite

  • What MailerLite does really well is providing small businesses on small budgets the opportunity to create attractive and easy peasy landing pages without breaking the bank.
  • MailerLite over the last year has really stepped up its game by integrating with popular third-party tools to help small businesses work smarter by creating automated systems and processes.
  • Their online educational webinars and training videos have improved tremendously in helping to educate small business owners on how to use email marketing more effectively.

Cons

Ceros

  • A direct to consumer model
  • Price point is high, but understandably
Sierra Schubach | TrustRadius Reviewer

MailerLite

  • Automations can be quite limited when one wants a slight more involved workflow.
  • The onboarding process can be quite cumbersome with their approvals - they don't say why if you're not.
  • Their affiliate program - a better deal and better support for attributions.

Support Rating

Ceros

Ceros 10.0
Based on 2 answers
Our CSMs have always been 100% and their support team typically responds within an hour or two. Their design/build team also worked with us on perfecting several experiences and are always mindful of how a project is going. One of their designers didn't really understand one of our requests and the project took more rounds of revisions than in previous projects, but they rectified the issue and the project came out well in the end. That outcome probably only happened in the time it did due to our CSM consistently checking in and getting feedback throughout the project - unfortunately, not something that happens enough with all our partners.

Alternatives Considered

Ceros

Ceros takes what would be difficult to accomplish in the Adobe suite of products and makes it easy. When it comes to user experience, user interface and customization options, Ceros is a much better alternative than Adobe. However, Adobe is the trusted name and some may be more comfortable with Adobe products
Daniel Berry | TrustRadius Reviewer

MailerLite

Compared to products like Constant Contact, MailerLite is much more cost appropriate, and is easier to use. The only downside is that Constant Contact has some additional functionality for live events that MailerLite doesn't offer, like text to join, but unless you are speaking at or holding live events often the added cost for Constant Contact doesn't make sense for startups or small businesses.

  • Just started using, stay tuned for positive impact numbers!

MailerLite

  • While email is a great way to connect with our clients, the sharable pdf brochures have been a great source of traffic to our website. It has also been a great conversation starter with potential clients who are tired of emails.
  • There are over 12 million WhatsApp users in Kenya, most of our clients and prospects, are more willing to connect us via WhatsApp than by email. The .PDF brochures has become one of our biggest marketing assets as we can keep them updated about our projects in a more social way. The fact that the brochures are more shareable is a big bonus. It'll be good to be able to track clicks, which currently can't be done as it's stared as a draft in MailerLite.
