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.

Overview

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).

Deployment:

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.

Disadvantages:

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.
