Ideal for eCommerce. It is not the cheapest for a startup but one of the best for a scaling business.

Alternatives Considered

ContactPigeon

ContactPigeon is built for eCommerce, while Mailchimp is super easy and a good fit for a smaller company. That's why we switched since we needed a more complete, all-in-one marketing automation solution to scale our online business.

SimplyCast

I use both SimplyCast and Act-On. Act-On ties in with our database, I use SimplyCast in order to send e-mails that don't look exactly like our other e-mails

Return on Investment

ContactPigeon

  • 25% growth in Email orders (YoY).
  • Higher open rates up to +46%.
Apostolis Lianos | TrustRadius Reviewer

SimplyCast

  • We do get responses from our e-mails
  • Do not get a lot of information like we do from Act-On
