Why creators love ConvertKit

ConvertKit is a marketing platform for creators, by creators. We know your unique needs and have developed the tools to make marketing your work easier.

1Never double pay for subscribers

Mailchimp’s list-centric approach means you pay for the same subscribers twice on different lists. WithConvertKit’s subscriber-first approach you save more and never pay double again.

2Simple and editable automations

Mailchimp’s customer journey feature is complicated and difficult to manage. No need to pause your workflows to make edits or add in a new segment. As your list scales, you can automate and grow on the go.

3Straightforward list management

Tags and segments give you the power to send emails to specific groups in your list based on their behavior, activity, and interests. Send new-subscriber promotions, customer anniversary messages, or whatever you dream up.

4Deliverability you can trust

Our 99.8 deliverability rate gets your emails into your subscribers’ inboxes. Dive deeper into your numbers with our subscriber scoring feature, and tune into our monthly deliverability reports.

The ConvertKit team made our migration from Mailchimp seamless! They helped us migrate all of our contacts, tags, and templates.

How long does it take to migrate from Mailchimp?

It all depends on the size of your account. The smaller your subscriber list and other factors, the easier it is to migrate your account. Most migrations only take a few days.

I found myself sticking with MailChimp for way too long – even after I realized I wanted to switch. The thought of starting over and recreating my sequences, templates, and more felt so daunting. The ConvertKit team offered to help me with my migration and they made the process so easy – it was a huge weight off my shoulders. From initiating the migration to emailing my audience fromConvertKit was just a matter of days. I only wish I would've made the switch sooner!
