Klaviyo may not be the best fit for everyone. It can be relatively expensive compared to other email marketing platforms, so it might not be ideal for small businesses with limited budgets. Additionally, the reporting features could be more advanced for those who require more detailed analytics.

Metadata is well suited when you have a really large ad budget (>50k per month at least). This is because the power of metadata lies in the ability to quickly set up and run a large number of experiments (combinations of channel, audience, creative, and conversion assets). To evaluate these variations, all of them need a large number of impressions, clicks, and conversions to be statistically relevant. If your budget is smaller, you will either have a very small number of experiments (not fully utilizing the power of metadata), or your experiments will not have enough clicks to make informed decisions. We had expected a better explanation of this from metadata before signing up.

We could segment our list by behavior, purchase history and by demographics. This gave us more views into the customer segmentation. Promotion emails. the high delivery rate of Flash sales, discounts, and promotions that drove sales SMS messaging. We could time SMS messaging to be aligned with email promotion to give a more omni marketing approach to CRM Reporting. Klavio provided excellent reporting by campaign and marketing period. It was able to track open rate, CTR, conversion and revenue. Creative Management. Klavio allowed us to store graphics from previous campaigns and use them in future marketing efforts Campaign Builder. the email builder mechanism is outstanding allowing for graphic, text, shapes and images all to be incorporated in HTML emails Testing. The AB testing function allowed for campaign optimization Read full review Best paid ops tool I've ever used (and I've used a lot): we can launch a new LinkedIn & Facebook campaign in minutes. Lead gen ops: no more dealing with broken zapier zaps, we are able to automate pushing native lead gen leads directly to our CRM. Attribution: see influenced & triggered opportunities/CW deals Multivariate testing: Metadata scales audience, ad, creative testing so you learn what performs much faster than manual process Read full review Cons The image quality you are able to upload can be a bit low, would love crisper GIFs and images to be allowed to upload Easier way to clean up and clear out inactive users Two way data sync between Klaviyo and Shopify (tags and such) as I believe it is a one way system as of now Read full review If you don't have a large budget and audience it's hard to meaningfully optimize. If I have 4 ad creatives, to 2 audience groups on FB and LinkedIn, that creates 16 experiments, each of which needs an ample enough budget, say $40/day, that's now $640 per day or $19K per month. Limited ability to edit ads after they've been launched. You usually have to stop the ad, clone it, and launch a new campaign. Can't add new ads to existing campaigns which limits the ability to optimize. If I start an MD campaign with 4 ads, and in a few weeks we see that one is working well and the other 2 are not performing, I can pause those (or it can autopause by rules), but I can't add 2 more new creatives to the mix against the high performer. I'd have to either stop the high performer, and recreate it in a new campaign (losing likes and comments), OR - leave the high performer in the first campaign, and create. a second campaign with the new ones, which will only optimize against each other. Limited to a single conversion event on a landing page. I'm not able to choose either a Demo Request OR a Sign-Up conversion, I can only choose one. Google search ads are doable but aren't necessarily more feature-rich or easy-to use than native, so there's no value added to doing it through Metadata in my opinion aside from unifying ad reporting.

The only reason why I did not give it a 10/10 is that it cannot distinguish purchases that came through subscription recharges instead of purchases that were driven directly by email sends. Other than that, the automation qualities, design features, and segmentation options make this an incredible email platform, and I am very happy with it

Klaviyo is by far the most well-rounded email tool I have used. It is on par with
is ease of email design, but far better when it comes to analytics, flows, and segmentation. We knew that as we grew, we risked alienating our audience amid we didn’t create a more sophisticated strategy for customer engagement and retention. Klaviyo was the only option that allowed us to execute our strategy without sacrifice.

We chose [Metadata.io] because it was a smaller company and could get more personalized attention. The price was better and they seemed more eager to support us. The feature set was what we were looking for and not more - it was exactly as robust as we needed it to be. Didn't want to pay for features we weren't going to use.
