Overall Satisfaction with ConvertKit

ConvertKit is an awesome option for building an email list and creating emails based on behavior using automation. I have used it to grow my list. The business problems it addresses is to create a landing page to capture emails to build lists and create different lists using automation. You can also build a website with it, but I only used it to house my potential leads.
  • CRM for your potential leads.
  • Offers automation to save entrepreneurs time and money.
  • Pricing is affordable and offers free trial.
  • When I first started using ConvertKit, I found it hard to create a landing page. I am pretty technical but when I had to customize my page using HTML, I got lost. I thought I could get up and running within an hour (build the page, create the list, and set up automation), but I soon realized I had to upgrade to use automation and setting up took me more than 3 hours. The learning curve had me stuck. I got frustrated and reached out to support.
  • ConvertKit is not for a non-tech person. There are not enough templates to get up and running within an hour.
  • ConvertKit is simply email marketing and landing pages for list building. It could offer a little more.
  • The analytics can be a bit more in depth.
  • The template landing pages did convert well.
  • Once I got passed the learning curve I was able to increase efficiency.
  • I do recommend using as a first start to lead generation.
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.

Would you buy ConvertKit again?

Yes

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.
