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.

Maropost
Maropost is a little more expensive than its competitors. I'd say Maropost is well suited for medium and larger businesses, not small businesses unless they're really good at utilizing e-mail and monetizing it.

  • The Sales Department shouldn't promise the customer what support can't deliver on.
  • They should also brush up on some ethics courses. It's appalling to me how they conduct business. Buyer beware.

Though relatively responsive, the responses were always utterly unhelpful and sometime not even relevant to the questions we asked. It quickly became apparent that it was outsourced copy/paste support.

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.

Maropost had everything we needed and more. We loved that fact that one price covered everything. As we move forward we don't have to go back and purchase modules that we are now ready for. No one wants to go back to management and ask for more money

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

Maropost
  • Lack of data and information about our users that we can use to get smarter in our segmentation hurts us in that we lose branded deals or partnerships.
  • Takes too much time to export reports and gain attrition reporting information, manually preparing reports is not a good use of time for anyone on our team.
