It's good, but not quite there

2016-12-08

The marketing automation in Active Campaign is good. You can automate a lot. Once you get used to the logic of the platform. After using OntraPort and InfusionSoft the logic is just different. The way AC labels things because they are still using lists. One thing I found with their campaign builder is that it takes quite a long time to respond. It's not the fastest workflow. While it looks good, there isn't much of an advantage using the diagram layout over a linear programming. At the end, the linear workflow of OntraPort is faster and more responsive.

Pros

The entry point pricing is good for the amount of features you get. It's pretty easy to get in-depth customer and prospect information, including social data. But you have to pay for it.

Cons

Lack of SMTP supports to fulfill emails via SendGrid or Amazon SES which could improve the deliverability a lot.

Good Product, Excellent Documentation

2018-05-18

Pros

As a developer, the importance of clear well-written documentation cannot be overstated. In my opinion, SendGrid's documentation is one of their best assets.

Cons

SendGrid definitely excels as an email deliverability platform for applications, but their offering for email marketing when compared to the likes of MailChimp, ActiveCampaign and, etc. leaves a lot to be desired.
