Hesitating between Constant Contact and Sendinblue?

Take your email marketing further with Sendinblue's advanced yet affordable features.

Constant Contact vs. Sendinblue pricing: Don't pay more as you grow

If you’re a small business with a fast-growing contact list, expect your Constant Contact bill to go up sharply. Constant Contact’s pricing is based on the number of contacts stored and you’ll be charged more from 500+ contacts. So is Constant Contact free? No, it offers only a month free but not to US or Canadian customers.

Is Sendinblue cheaper than Constant Contact then? Sendinblue lets you pick a plan based on the number of emails you send each month, while storing an unlimited number of contacts at no extra cost. The Starter plan’s base price of $25 includes 20,000 monthly email sends — plenty if you’re just starting out.

Bonus: Sendinblue offers a forever free plan that lets you send up to 300 emails a day and store unlimited contacts. Meanwhile Constant Contact offers a 30-day free trial to eligible customers only.

Comparing email marketing features: Take it to the next level with Sendinblue

Constant Contact and Sendinblue are both easy-to-use email marketing platforms, perfect for beginners. They offer all the basic features you’d expect, including a drag and drop editor, email templates, and campaign reports.

But, Sendinblue also offers more advanced features for when you’re ready to step up your email marketing.

Want to test different content in your emails to see what works best? Or send campaigns at the best time for individual contacts? Or automatically update contact segments based on criteria you set? Sendinblue has you covered.

More good news: You can send transactional emails like shipping notifications and password resets via Sendinblue’s SMTP server. This way you can manage marketing and transactional emails all under the one roof, at no extra cost.

Constant Contact supports many of these features too, but they charge a 1.5% transaction fee on all orders.

Constant Contact vs. Sendinblue for marketing automation

Both platforms allow you to trigger automated email sequences based on subscriber sign-ups or engagement with your emails.

However, Sendinblue takes it a step further with custom workflow options, including conditions to take users on a more personalized journey. And with the Sendinblue tracker you can trigger automations based on users’ activity on your website too.

There is also the option to use one of the plugins for major ecommerce platforms to automatically send abandoned cart emails. Constant Contact does also offer this functionality, but only via the Shopify or WooCommerce plugins.

You can even use Sendinblue marketing automation to manage contacts in your database. For example, automatically add or remove contacts from lists and assign a score to leads based on their engagement.

To create automated email sequences with Constant Contact, you’ll need their more expensive Email Plus plan. Meanwhile, you get Sendinblue’s full suite of marketing automation tools free for up to 2000 contacts. Or you can opt for the Business plan at $65/month for unlimited marketing automation.

They explain it best

Fantastic service at a very good price

"At first, I was using Constant Contact to send my press releases, but it cost me 5 times more than what Sendinblue charges me. Now I can send my press releases in a clean, professional manner to radio hosts and producers, as well as news stations and interviewers. The ones who don't want to receive my releases can just unsubscribe, which over time keeps my contact list up to date."

The best newsletter mailing software out there

"My recommendation: Quit using Constant Contact and MailChimp now, and try Sendinblue. You'll save money. Sendinblue helped us build a substantial database of customer contacts without costing us hundreds of dollars every month."

A complete email marketing solution

"Sendinblue has really great features and keeps every one of its promises. Personally, the software has helped me send out large email campaigns that are different from the usual business emails. When I send offers to my database, I know that my message will go straight to customers' inboxes, not their spam. I can analyze the links my customers click on to find out which emails have the best conversion rates."
