MailerLite vs ConvertKit

Professional creators use professional tools. When you’re serious about growing your online business, you need a tool that can grow with you.

MailerLite vs ConvertKit

I was originally with MailerLite for the price, but I would rather pay 5x the amount to ConvertKit. MailerLite made automations, segments, and tagging way too complicated. Their automation feature was just not as seamless as ConvertKit.
