Pros

ActiveCampaign is a power house and has so many ways of making a business successful. It is user friendly and has great features to communicate with leads to building email drips.
It has advanced automation features, thorough split testing tools that improve conversion rate. It has a great email template builder, better than most autoresponders.
I love that if I can think of something I'd like to do, there is always a way of doing it. The walkthroughs are fantastic and it's a friendly team to hold your hand while you set up.

Pros

Yes it takes time to learn, yes it is worth that investment, and yes it is great value for. I am so very grateful to the developers and the support team that have helped me along the way.
We needed a good platform to support our e-mail marketing efforts and wanted it simple. Kartra is not only simple but very powerful, and it fit our requirements like a glove.
Even with my grumblings above, I am very satisfied with Kartra, especially considering its competition. I truly believe it's the best value with regard to functionality and ease of use, hands down.

Cons

The email editor is just horrible. It's clunky, it's ugly, it doesn't show all the sequence, even editing an email is a hassle.
I use it only for mail marketing. The full CRM solution is quite bad and has poor functionalities.
I fixed the problem but to no avail I cannot send out any emails and do not know how to lift their Under Review which means my account is on hold.

Cons

Overall, Kartra has worked out for us. The landing pages are a little difficult to link up to sales pages but not so hard that I would stop using it.
My biggest frustration is that the tool runs of EST time zone, which for someone based in NZ makes it really confusing when scheduling emails etc to be sent at a certain time.
But Kartra did not take over the throne, so to say, but offered an alternative. Sadly the price was too high and the features was not so many.
