For other email marketing providers, their 'free' plans are not 'no cost' at all; instead, they're just bait to lead unsuspecting customers into a hard sell.
Chicago, IL (PRWEB) August 13, 2013
Startups and small businesses take note: ActiveCampaign is sweetening the deal on its free email marketing & marketing automation plan. Now, users can send to and manage up to 2,500 contacts, a tenfold increase over the previous number. Plus, the company has added full access to the same marketing automation features that have always been available to paid subscribers.
Company CEO Jason VandeBoom explained the company's reasoning: "For other email marketing providers, their 'free' plans are not 'no cost' at all; instead, they're just bait to lead unsuspecting customers into a hard sell. They typically have limited functionality, restrict auto responders, lack automation, and only allow for short contact lists. ActiveCampaign doesn't work that way. Our plan has enough power and versatility to more than meet the needs of small businesses and individuals."
ActiveCampaign's free marketing automation is the definition of a disruptive technology, not to mention a stroke of genius from a business perspective. "None of our competitors offer a comparable service tier on their platforms. We know from experience that there's a strong demand for marketing automation from small businesses and startups. These potential customers are working with shoestring budgets, but need adaptable, scalable marketing to help create growth conditions. We're happy to contribute to that growth in our own small way," explained VandeBoom.
An expanded number of contacts is not the only value adding touch that ActiveCampaign is eager to share; subscribers to this plan can now send up to 10,000 emails each month with phone, live chat, and email support. That is enough to lay the groundwork for a robust network of leads, allowing users creating thousands of valuable impressions each month — all at no cost and no commitment.
No credit card is required to sign up for the ActiveCampaign plan. There's no contract to sign, and no high-pressure sales tactics. For many users, this plan may provide all the service and features they will ever need. On the other hand, should a company see rapid growth and a need for larger contact lists and more functionality, transitioning to one of the paid plans is easy.
