Email editing and creation

Provides standard HTML editor which is similar to Notion

Provides a basic email editor and Raw HTML editor. Editor can create HTML emails only

Automation

Automations have huge scope it misses simple elements and thus making operations complicated.

Frequently asked questions

You can sign up for free on ConvertKit to send unlimited emails to 1,000 subscribers. However, the trial, besides list segmentation and audience insights, doesn't give you a taste of automation and advanced reporting. You can consider using a ConvertKit alternative like Mailmodo. Mailmodo also offers complete analytics and automation features in its trial plan.

ConvertKit is tailormade for content creators, but it receives a lot of flak for poor deliverability and lack of advanced insights. If you've faced a low inbox placement rate recently, you can consider switching to a ConvertKit alternative like Mailmodo to fix your low engagement history, poor domain reputation, and scammy email list.

Mailmodo is a better choice in terms of email deliverability. The platform helps boost your email deliverability by offering you expert consultations to clean your lists, setting up proper authentication protocols, and managing your suppression lists.

Mailmodo is the best alternative to Elastic Email because it has user-friendly email design features, manages your deliverability to boost your inbox placement rate, and provides 24/7 email, phone, and customer support.

Elastic Email is good for businesses looking to do email marketing on a small scale. At a large scale, however, the tool has shown deliverability issues. For boosting your inbox placement rate, consider using Elastic Email alternatives like Mailmodo to get a dedicated IP server and 1-on-1 consultation with a deliverability expert.

Mailmodo is far more superior than Elastic Email in terms of deliverability. The former offers warmed up domain and tools to authenticate your emails to boost your inbox placement rate.
