As a startup founder, It is really difficult to choose the right platform to commit with. You have free options and very expensive ones. So Active campaign was a great option for me, right on the sweet spot.

Their customer success team is the best. I have had three on boarding one-on-one calls where they have understood my business and helped me with all the setup, resources and best practices to start using it the best way possible.

It is a very robust system, I only use the email automation, segmentation and I am starting to use their CRM, but the posibilites are endless. So far I love it

Pros

It is super easy to setup and use
The best customer support I have ever had on any kind of service/product
A thorough on boarding process, with personal coaching
You can automate every single part of your marketing funnel and still have a nice personal touch with your best leads
Endless possibilities to interact with your customers and prospects and track every behavior with you

Cons

It is so wide that I find myself a little overwhelmend on how to take as much as possible from the system without burning out.

I am in the 2,500 contacts bracket, and I think its price is fair. But when I have to sacle it up, it will seem pricy

Alternatives Considered

ConvertKit and HubSpot Marketing Hub

Reasons for Choosing ActiveCampaign

I made research and wanted a more robust solution. I compared Active campaign against hubspot and convertkit and I preferred Active Campaign

Switched From

Mailchimp

Reasons for Switching to ActiveCampaign

Better price (against Hubspot) So many more functions (Against convertkit and others)

Unfortunately, our experience with this platform was more than disappointing. Communication, charging methods, and pricing did not fit with with our company’s important needs

Pros

Not much at all. The ability to COLLECT & STORE our contacts was the only benefit to our company

Cons

Inability to contact ActiveCampaign via phone except for Sales purposes. Company had only ONE phone number, and one had to DIG to find it (Sales phone number.)

Also, automatic charges by ActiveCampaign when we were not wanting to renew were not appreciated.

Alternatives Considered

Constant Contact and Mailchimp

Reasons for Switching to ActiveCampaign

Thought features & support would be much better. Began our subscription with phone support the 1st year but that was discontinued by the company shortly thereafter—-this did not help our company, our customers, nor our staff.

Beware of annual billing!

Reviewed on 15/11/2023

They are eager to help you use their product but not helpful when you decide to leave.

They are eager to help you use their product but not helpful when you decide to leave.

Pros

ActiveCampaign is generally a good ESP for basic email automation.

Cons

I am frustrated that I moved off of ActiveCampaign, and they billed my account without a reminder notice. I contacted them 1-day after the charge showed up, and they won't provide a full or pro-rated refund. I find this to be deceptive. If they are going to use automated annual billing, the very least they can do is send you an email reminder before the payment is billed.
