I have to confess, collecting NPS scores in ActiveCampaign is difficult. We had actually previously utilized Promoter.io to collect NPS, which is (in theory) a plug and play service. We had a hard time a lot with their service, which was among the reasons for centralising it in ActiveCampaign. Instead of explaining how we set it up here, I ‘d advise reading brilliant post that ActiveCampaign released, which we followed to collect and automate NPS collection.

In order to inform our clients and make them successful as quickly as possible, we put all of our customers into a 7-day onboarding series, which leak feeds a series of tutorials, videos, and white documents that they can use to learn our software application and get much better outcomes from their lead capture forms. This automation sequence takes some pressure off of our assistance team, as it means that we can address questions in these tutorials that might have otherwise ended up being support tickets/emails.

When someone cancels their account or demands a refund for our ventures, it’s crucial that we discover what triggered this. In ActiveCampaign, we immediately activate a sequence that asks the client what made them leave, and then adds/removes them from the correct lists and series. It’s basic but is one less thing that our client success group need to consider.

MailChimp’s built-in image editor is exceptionally powerful. You can resize, crop, and include custom text to your images. I miss MailChimp’s email-editing experience. It would conserve me a little time to have that same experience on ActiveCampaign. However the highly-customizable automations I can develop on ActiveCampaign more than offset that prospective time savings.

ConvertKit’s email modifying experience is very plain, but easy to navigate. Their templates are limited, which is fine with me, but their e-mail editing experience is somewhat simpler because you can develop inline images, and you can produce an absolutely plain e-mail, and even edit the underlying HTML. If you want to make some quick edits to some emails in an automation, with ActiveCampaign, it’s cumbersome.

I’ll click an e-mail, and it takes me to the editor for that email. Keep in mind that I can’t even Command + Click to open it in another tab.

I usually do not think pricing should be a major consider deciding the right email marketing platform for your company. Having the best features for your marketing method will ultimately offset whatever rate distinctions you find. But, rate is still a factor, so let’s take a look at rates for ActiveCampaign vs.

As you can see: If you’re beginning with 500 contacts, ActiveCampaign’s Lite strategy is more affordable than both AWeber and ConvertKit. ConvertKit is almost double the rate of ActiveCampaign if you’re simply starting out. MailChimp, is totally free below 2,000 contacts. But changing is a pain, so only select MailChimp if it’s the very best choice for you.

About 10% more than ConvertKit, and about 50% more than AWeber or MailChimp. As I’ve stated, if you’re going to be making complete usage of ActiveCampaign’s abundant automation features, it’s well worth the price difference. In conclusion, ActiveCampaign is an extremely versatile email marketing platform, and I’m so glad I made the effort to do the research study and make the switch from MailChimp to ActiveCampaign.
