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.

Kartra is a great platform for a service-based business that needs a moderate cost solution and one-stop shop for their business needs. Kartra has a marketplace of professionals that can train and or get your services set up in the system. The access to Kartra experts is valuable since the platform does have a bit of a learning curve and is not user-friendly when just starting out.

Cons

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.

I switched from Teachable to Karta. Teachable was at a lower price point but I found it harder to use and didn't provide all of the features the Kartra offers. I also experienced holding on to funds for a long period of time after a transaction has been completed. I'm happy that I switched.
