Email Marketing Tools What is ConvertKit?

What is ConvertKit?

ConvertKit is an email marketing solution for running advanced email marketing campaigns. Create opt-in forms, tag subscribers, set-up automations, and send email follow-up messages quickly and easily with this email marketing solution.


Who ConvertKit is For:

ConvertKit is specifically designed for bloggers, online course creators, and publishers of just about any kind.

Skill Level:

You do not need any special skills to get started with ConvertKit. The dashboard is simple to navigate. You can create opt-in forms very quickly from the interface (it integrates with other form builders too).


You’ll login to ConvertKit with an online connection. There is no mobile app at this time, but the administration area works on a mobile phone. Setting up your campaigns and writing your emails on mobile has not yet been optimized.

Special Features:

ConvertKit works well and is easy to understand. This tool includes everything a blogger or creator needs so you don’t have to piece everything together. It’s a smart, intuitive, and fun tool compared to other options. Switching to ConvertKit is easy. They’ll even take care of migrating for you when you have 5,000 or more subscribers.


You have to be willing to use the ConvertKit forms and landing pages more or less as is. There are a few things you can change, but many things you cannot. They are fairly minimalistic, which I’m a fan of, but if you’re not, then you might find yourself wishing you could change more aspects of the forms and landing pages.
