Klaviyo is a relatively new but rapidly growing email marketing campaign management platform for ecommerce stores on Shopify, Bigcommerce and Magento, from the company of the same name in Boston, MA which was founded in 2012. Klaviyo integrates with CRM, help desk, shopping cart and other marketing services (e.g. MailChimp) to fine-tune campaigns. It offers many analytic features and segmentation for targeted delivery of newsletters, drip campaigns, triggered email or autoresponders for retargeting, and more. Klaviyo is free up to 250 contacts and 500 sends, beyond which the paid editions start at $25 per month and supports unlimited contact for up to 500 individual email addresses, with tiers up to $700 per month for unlimited sends to 50,000 addresses. If that's not enough, high volume senders can get a quote and a custom plan. While popular at home in the US, Klaviyo is also used by companies throughout the world, in both Americas, Europe, and Asia.https://dudodiprj2sv7.cloudfront.net/product-logos/8Y/48/XA2JC69LL653.jpegKlaviyo - Good price, time saver, easy to use, but a bit limitingWe use Klaviyo as our primary means of email marketing for both of our brands. The only department that uses Klaviyo is our marketing department since it is strictly a marketing oriented tool. Klaviyo is a reasonably priced alternative to the higher cost ESP we moved over from. It does make things easy with it's "drag and drop" style interface but with that there are limitations.

Klaviyo does allow you to insert custom HTML however we have not found it useful. The code we enter in the custom HTML box sometimes doesn't render correctly in the final send. One HUGE thing about Klaviyo is the fact that is clips your message when viewed in gmail if it has too many links. Klaviyo adds a TON of extra tracking info to the ends of links inserted into emails so it causes the file size to go up. Once the file size limit is met, gmail starts clipping the bottom of your messages causing consumers to miss much of your message unless they click the link at the bottom of their email to view more. This is a major flaw in my opinion.,7,This year we turned a higher profit during the holiday months this far but I don't think that has too much to do with Klaviyo.

We use Klaviyo as our primary means of email marketing for both of our brands. The only department that uses Klaviyo is our marketing department since it is strictly a marketing oriented tool. Klaviyo is a reasonably priced alternative to the higher cost ESP we moved over from. It does make things easy with it's "drag and drop" style interface but with that there are limitations.

  • Klaviyo cuts down the time it takes to create an email newsletter
  • The drag and drop interface is easy for anyone to jump in and use - no special knowledge of coding is necessary
  • This is our first holiday season using Klaviyo. It seems like their system does get overwhelmed at times with pages that don't load or even images in emails that have been sent not loading.
  • Klaviyo does allow you to insert custom HTML however we have not found it useful. The code we enter in the custom HTML box sometimes doesn't render correctly in the final send.
  • One HUGE thing about Klaviyo is the fact that is clips your message when viewed in gmail if it has too many links. Klaviyo adds a TON of extra tracking info to the ends of links inserted into emails so it causes the file size to go up. Once the file size limit is met, gmail starts clipping the bottom of your messages causing consumers to miss much of your message unless they click the link at the bottom of their email to view more. This is a major flaw in my opinion.
It seems as though Klaviyo is better suited to a company that is just starting out. One where emails aren't really expected to look overly polished and professional and where they aren't sending at high rates. Klaviyo's features and functionality are more limiting than other ESPs I've used before but for the price I suppose you get what you pay for.

  • Epic reporting.
  • Scheduling can take time to queue up.
  • Previews can take too long to generate.
Best when used within an ecommerce store with a large amount of customers. With no ecommerce or smaller scale the impact is just going to be limited.
