Pros: Ease of use and easy UI/UX experience in using the software. The user interfaces are way better than other email marketing software on the market. It has enough basic features and a few powerful features such as tagging certain opt-in groups of users for niche marketing purposes, which I find it very useful. There are less clutter when it comes to feature layout on the interfaces, so one can focus better on using key or common key features.

A nifty feature which I liked most is the Visual Automations, that Convertkit had come up with. It's a graphical way to set automation. It uses three types of items: Actions, Events, and Conditions. It's all visual and one can easily define these items.

Moreover, ConvertKit has just introduced new features into its software such as enabling one to create custom consent checkboxes, find your EU subscribers and get consent from existing subscribers. Also, four new legal forms and support processes were introduced as tools to help one get one's own business compliant with GDPR.

Cons: Personally, I would like more visual stuff or graphical interfaces that I can interact with such as drag and drop functions. At this point of this review, ConvertKit had plans to revamp the software to become more powerful and there is a new branding makeover for ConvertKit.

For the monthly price for the 1st 1000 subscribers for new customers, I do find the price is expensive. But one has the option to go for yearly subscription in order to get bulk discounts in the long run. Thus, one has to consider different pricing options that ConvertKit offers before committing to a paid account. One can try out a free one month trial via its free webinars though.

Overall: Time saver and great use of use.

Pros: Simple and powerful automation and multiple forms per list. Easily delivers multiple opt-in incentives. This is a big step forward compared with MailChimp's feature. Automatically process duplicate subscribers.

Cons: ConvertKit does not have a free plan like MailChimp does. Limited design and landing page system.

Pros: Pricing is key with email service providers. I like how convertkit charges based on the number of subscribers you have. Also, they have the ability to get very granular and automated with your marketing campaigns using tags, forms, sequences, and automation.

Cons: Most email service provider software takes a while to learn. Learning how use convertkit took me longer than I'd like to admit, and I'm still learning how I can use it for my needs. They have training and there are consultants available, I just wish it would be a little easier to learn.

Overall: Convertkit compiles all my email addresses for various interests. I don't know how I'd do this without an email service provider software. It helps me organize my email lists so I don't email out information to the wrong people/list.

Pros: I love the ability to edit the HTML & CSS directly from the editor, a la WordPress. You can easily make an email as simple or as complex as you want using this tool. And the tagging and automation features are clutch.

Cons: I wish there was a more introductory pricing level. It's the tool I think clients should use, however it's more difficult of an investment when there's no immediate ROI

Overall: I am able to connect with my audience and generate sales.

Great for managing my subscribers!

Pros: I love that Converkit allows me to tag my subscribers and segment my list as much as a want. It allows me to easily tag subscribers that click on links in my emails. It allows me to tag however I want. I can send an email with questions and depending on what answer my subscribers click I can have them tagged and segmented to another email series etc. There is so much that can be automated and controlled with Convertkit. If you're using an email system that doesn't allow you to segment, tag, and automate then Convertkit will be a game changer for you.

Cons: There is a learning curve but their customer support is awesome and they will chat or get on the phone with you if you have any questions. They also have a HELP section and some video training.

Pros: after using different software I got to convertkit and solve all my problems, its interface and the ease to create different campaigns has been fabulous, its integration with shopify is native, that made my job really easy

Cons: I would like you to have an assistant for the creation of snippets for the post editor, although that is not limiting to use HTML code in the editor

Pros: ConvertKit has put a lot of time into making sure that their tools are easy to use and understand. For a content creator, it takes the hassle out of a lot of work - and the work that is most important if you want to be able to earn a living creating. Their community is easily the best part - a supportive and helpful bunch. Whether you aren't technically inclined or are looking to make your way as a creator they have some amazing help and advice to offer. Also, as a very mission-driven company, they are very easy to get behind. I haven't really encountered important functionality that was missing when I needed it. They keep it simple, and through that, very powerful.

Cons: It's disappointing that there isn't a visual email editor - but good news! It's on the way!! (I couldn't be more excited. )

Pros: This program has a pretty small learning curve and is pretty easy to use. I love the dashboard where you can see your new subscribers and conversion rates at a glance.

Cons:  I wish there were more customized features for landing pages. I also wish there were more split testing options.

Overall: I love using it for email marketing and list building. Wish there were more custom landing page features.

Pros: I have used several email management systems, but convert kit is the best hands down. It is packed with all the features you need without over complicating things such as sequences.

Cons: The drawbacks about Convert Kit is that there are no easy ready-made templates for newsletters and it is missing some form features such as drop-down menus.

I am as tech clueless as they come and I find Convertkit user-friendly!

Pros: The broadcast, add subscribers, and tag functions are really simple - I use them easily! I love that they have free trainings and offer great customer support.

Cons: So far I haven't figured out the funnel idea...I'm not sure it's the software's fault though. I mostly just do broadcasts and that's enough for me for now.

Overall: I feel more organized about my contacts - I used to use a spreadsheet and it got to be a bit overwhelming. Now I just have first name, email address, and where the contact came from (online form, website, health fair, etc.). I can organize broadcasts by whether folks are local (for in-person classes) and if they are far away (for blogs, online classes, online products, etc.).

Pros: I love ConvertKit and have used it in my business for over 1 1/2 years. It allows me to connect with my audience with ease and automation.

Cons: I do think the price is slightly expensive considering my list is not that big. I think they should lower the price for people with lists below a certain number.

Pros: Convertkit provided many of the featured of more expensive services like Infusionsoft, but at a Mailchimp price.

Cons: Not a lot of bells/whistles or fancy templates. But for a blogger or coach or other service provider that doesn't need the graphics, Convertkit's simpler layouts are actually more functional and likely to make it past spam filters.

Pros: The logic behind creating the drip email campaigns for subscribers is simply amazing. No matter if your subscribers sign up today or some other day, they are going to receive all the emails right in their inbox.

Cons: Apart from email automation, I found this online software a bit hard to use. I requested for support by haven't got the reply so I did it myself somehow.

Pros: Convertkit has a much lower learning curve than ActiveCampaign, and more flexibility compared to MailChimp. Convertkit allows for multiple forms and segmentation based on tags, whereas MailChimp limits you to 1 form per list.

Cons: It's automation capabilities aren't quite as dynamic as ActiveCampaign's, but it is loaded with a sufficient range of automation scenarios.

Pros: The best part of Convertkit is how easy it is to use and set up landing pages, email optins, and sending out broadcasts. I also like how easy it is to integrate email optins through a wordpress plugin.

Cons: I wish there was a way to allow users to check boxes confirming they agree to the terms of the email optin.

Overall: A very easy to use email software program and user interface that's quick to learn.

Pros: I started using Convert Kit for a side hustle after learning of its awesome automation features and it has been wonderful!

Cons: At this point in my growth, the flat rate is a slight deterrent since my audience has stayed very small.

Overall: I like of all the automation and tagging features! It's so different than a list-focused platform like MailChimp (in a lot of great ways).
