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.

ExpressPigeon
ExpressPigeon is well suited for a small team that needs to utilize marketing for their business. I can tell you now that my entire team knows how to use ExpressPigeon. It may not be well suited for someone that is looking to really automate their marketing efforts, but definitely suited for teams that really have their hands from beginning to the end of a campaign.

The other products I have used are not available on TrustRadius. I used ConvertKit before I used these other products because I need an all in one platform.

While ExpressPigeon is not as "advanced" in some senses, when compared to those other tools, it provides us with the core functions that we need to run the business. They are also constantly upgrading and adding functionality, such as automation, which helps when needed. Overall, stacks up fairly well for the costs associated to it.
