The first time I used ActiveCampaign, it was love at first sight. They have an incredible drag-and-drop email automation editor. For example, here’s the one that I use for my free design-learning course.
It’s a pretty sophisticated-looking automation, but what it does is simple. I’ll break it down a bit.
- My email course starts every Monday. The deadline to sign up is the previous Friday. This automation welcomes new students, based upon when they sign up.
- If they sign up before Friday, then on Friday, they get one last email reminding them it’s the last day for them to invite their friends to take the course with them.
This last-minute sharing, along with the deadline, builds a “viral loop,” bringing in more leads. It’s my marketing flywheel.
It’s awesome, and it was impossible to do with my old ESP.
That’s why I was in love with ActiveCampaign from the moment I saw this drag-and-drop editor. I had literally spent years considering which ESP to switch to. I had grown out of MailChimp.
The amazing thing is, ActiveCampaign actually costs me less than MailChimp did.
Switching ESPs is a big deal, so it’s important to get whatever free trials you can, run some tests, and really get a feel for the service.
