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.

I feel that this is a very good email marking system. You really can accomplish any task needed for your email marketing needs. I think that if a few key features were added, it would really take Lyris HQ over the top. We are very happy with this product and we tell our clients about it when they ask us.

Implementation was one of the most painful parts for us as we had to find and create our own library to interface with Lyris's SOAP API interface which still to this day is one of the top libraries used in its language.

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.

Return on Investment
ConvertKit
  • Prospect follow up is much easier than it used to be with fewer real prospects slipping through the cracks
  • My return clients percentages have increased since I started using Convertkit

  • More defined lists for third party blasts, which turns into more leads for the clients. Which is more money in our pocket.
  • Some segmentation pulls do take a long time, thus leading to multiple requests and a time suck for myself.
