MailerLite

MailerLite is fantastic for anyone who is looking to send emails to a lot of people and gather data and analytics of who has read the email, clicked on links, etc. It works well on a company base as well as an individual contractor base.

Privy

Privy is a great software for anyone who wants to turn their visitors into a relationship. Here's the deal: Websites can convert from 1-4% (great ones can convert at 10%), and landing pages can convert up to 30% (great ones can convert higher). What happens to that other 70-99%? That's what email capture is for. It's vital for every site, business, and store owner to provide an offer and collect email information... So that you can develop the relationship through email marketing. Privy is well suited to users at many different levels because of its flexibility and customization ability. I rarely say "everyone" should be doing a particular thing or another...Marketing plans usually mandate tailor-based solutions for specific problems... But in this case, it's hard to imagine anyone who wouldn't be able to use this software. Though, those who are driving paid traffic to their site and a strong offer will see greater conversion. Those who have no offer, a poor offer, bad branding, and low traffic may see a poor result using this software...

Cons

MailerLite

  • Although they have started working with popular third-party tools there is major room for improvement. Due to them not being on the list of integrated tools for some very well known CRM's it has been difficult to fully use MailerLite for all our online email management systems.
  • They have a great selection of landing page templates that work well for new business start-ups but unfortunately they have yet to be added to in the two years since I switched over. This is an area I hope they plan to improve, whether it be only available on pro plans, it's just time to add to that library.
  • The other major part I hope Mailerlite can improve is the option to upload and store PDF's and videos instead of having to link to outside sources.

  • Their A/B test option needs a little improvement - It can be hard to find where the second design is so that you can edit it.
  • Their embeddable forms need greater flexibility - To be GDPR compliant, you need the ability to give granular user options and provide a few checkboxes. Our team has to use other embed options or create custom HTML for our Euro users.
  • Social support group - Right now the software doesn't have a social group. They have a slack channel for partners but they don't have a social group for users. (common for most software these days to connect users to one another).

  • Flexible options: The software allows so many different kinds of opt-in form solutions: Full-page, pop-up, bar at the top of the page, embedded, etc.
  • Easy UX: This software is easy to use for just about anyone on my team. It's easy to implement and work with. Design, form field determination, and integration is all relatively very easy to perform.
  • Great support: We've had in-person calls with their support team, and they've been answer specific questions and offer relevant strategies. They've been willing to get on the phone with me and my clients to help us solve problems.
  • Multiple integrations - No matter what CRM you're using, there's likely a way to integrate Privy forms into it.
  • Easy installation on sites: Just a strip of code.
  • Visible, measurable results: Tracking and data with visits, conversion events, and conversion $ tracked to the forms.

Super easy - Choosing the form fields - easySetting up the entire form - easy Integration with other crms - easy Designing the forms - relatively easy Measurement - very visible Support - greatThe only thing it lacks is a little more visibility in the B variations of A/B tests and the price - It's very low at first, but the more that you earn off of your pop-ups, the more that they will charge you. However, even compared to the revenue gained, this cost is not much.

Alternatives Considered

MailerLite

Compared to products like Constant Contact, MailerLite is much more cost appropriate, and is easier to use. The only downside is that Constant Contact has some additional functionality for live events that MailerLite doesn't offer, like text to join, but unless you are speaking at or holding live events often the added cost for Constant Contact doesn't make sense for startups or small businesses.

After having used quite a few email marketing platforms, I can say out of all of them we like Privy the best. Privy's integration with the BigCommerce platform makes it much easier to use than the others we tried in the past and we are happy with the results we have gotten and their excellent customer support which is superior especially to Mailchimp which can only be reached by email.

Return on Investment

MailerLite

  • While email is a great way to connect with our clients, the sharable pdf brochures have been a great source of traffic to our website. It has also been a great conversation starter with potential clients who are tired of emails.
  • There are over 12 million WhatsApp users in Kenya, most of our clients and prospects, are more willing to connect us via WhatsApp than by email. The .PDF brochures has become one of our biggest marketing assets as we can keep them updated about our projects in a more social way. The fact that the brochures are more shareable is a big bonus. It'll be good to be able to track clicks, which currently can't be done as it's stared as a draft in MailerLite.

  • We have had better conversion rates on our emails.
  • We spend less time creating email marketing campaigns that look professional.
