Knak.

If you have Marketo or Pardot and have emails that might be somewhat simple to slightly complex, without the budget for a developer, Knak is the right solution for you. If you have complex emails that require a lot of code or customization and have the in-house resources, Knak might not be the perfect solution

Mautic Marketing Automation

Mautic is well suited for companies that are ready to scale their email marketing to the next level. We were using Mailchimp but found that it did not meet all of our needs. While it was okay at email marketing, the features for landing pages, tagging and dynamic interactions were limited. I would not recommend Mautic for someone who is just starting out though. It can be very intimidating. Unless you have someone who is well versed in email marketing automation, I would not recommend using it

Cons

Knak.

  • Sometimes there are issues with buggy code
  • Updates sometimes will break emails
Akande Davis | TrustRadius Reviewer

Mautic Marketing Automation

  • Both the email and landing WYSIWYG was flawed, ran into errors and glitches.
  • Form actions were lacking, and simple automation from forms was problematic.
  • Focus items were buggy on Mautic landing pages... had to add through Javascript, and caused issues on the page.

Alternatives Considered

Knak.

Marketo has email templates and you can, of course, create your own - but Knak makes it so much easier to create templates that are nice looking and mobile-optimized.

Mautic Marketing Automation

Mautic's competitive advantage is cost. Other solutions can be prohibitively expensive, and some other marketing automation solutions I had used required costly up-front investment for onboarding. I chose Mautic because I had grown weary of the aggressive sales tactics and unreasonable pricing of competitors' offerings for small businesses and agencies.
