Discover Sendinblue, a cheaper alternative to ActiveCampaign
It's time to choose an email platform that's affordable and intuitive.
Sendinblue: the same features at half the price of ActiveCampaign
Sendinblue works out a lot cheaper than ActiveCampaign for sending bulk emails.
This is because ActiveCampaign charges you based on your number of contacts while Sendinblue lets you store unlimited contacts at no extra cost. This way, you only pay for email usage and not for growing your business.
Sendinblue’s free plan offers a flexibile way to test-drive the platform by sending up to 300 emails a day. ActiveCampaign, on the other hand, only offers a 14-day free trial limited to 100 contacts and 100 emails.
|Number of contacts||Sendinblue||ActiveCampaign|
|Free plan||300 emails/day, unlimited contacts|
|Send a monthly newsletter to 1000 contacts||$25||$29|
|Send a monthly newsletter to 2500 contacts||$25||$55|
|Send a monthly newsletter to 5000 contacts||$25||$99|
|Send a monthly newsletter to 10,000 contacts||$25||$155|
|Send a monthly newsletter to 25,000 contacts||$54||$259|
|Send a monthly newsletter to 50,000 contacts||$69||$345|
|Send a monthly newsletter to 100,000 contacts||$99||$505|

Sendinblue: Manage your marketing and transactional emails all from one platform
If your business relies on time-sensitive transactional emails (order updates, password resets, etc.), you’ll be able to send these through Sendinblue’s dedicated SMTP server. Sendinblue lets you manage both marketing and transactional emails from the same platform as part of your monthly email plan.
ActiveCampaign does not have a transactional email server. For this you’ll have to use another service which will mean paying even more for email.
|Transactional emails||Paid add-on (Mandrill)|
|Email marketing campaigns|
|Advanced marketing automation|
|Send time optimization|
|Click heat map|
|HTML email editor|
|Landing page builder|
|Telephone support||From $65/month||From $279/month|

They explain it best
An accessible, affordable tool
Sendinblue is very easy to learn, and lets you design attractive, effctive emails that combine images, text and links to sites or documents. Importing contact files is very intuitive, and the system automatically checks for any duplicate entries. It also manages unsubscribes and blacklists people automatically. What's more, statistics on opens and clicks help us fine-tune our analysis of active contacts. All at a very affordable price! I highly recommend it.
Truly practical and intuitive
For our current needs, Sendinblue is free, practical, and intuitive... Importing contacts is convenient, managing newsletters is easy, and the reports give us feedback about our campaigns. In my opinion, Sendinblue is the best emailing software on the market. The interface is clear, and plans are simple and transparent... Real professionals were at the other end of the line (or email) for technical assistance with our account setup, for example, or using automation.
