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 per contact stored whereas Sendinblue lets you store an unlimited number of contacts at no extra cost. This way, you only pay for email usage and not for growing your business.

Sendinblue’s free plan gives you a lot of flexibility to test-drive the platform by sending up to 300 emails a day. Active Campaign, on the other hand, only offers a 14-day free trial limited to 100 contacts and 100 emails.

Sendinblue: Manage marketing campaigns and transactional emails all on the one platform

If your business relies on time-sensitive transactional emails (order confirmations, password resets, shipping updates, etc.), you’ll be able to send these through Sendinblue’s dedicated SMTP server. Sendinblue lets you manage both automated marketing emails AND transactional emails all on the one 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.

They explain it best

An accessible, affordable tool

Sendinblue is very easy to learn, and lets you design nice, efficient emails that combine images, text and links to sites or documents. Importing contact files is very intuitive, and the system checks for any duplicate entries automatically. The management of unsubscribe requests is handled 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. They really make us feel supported, and help is always available, whether through tutorials or outside assistance. Importing contacts is practical, managing newsletters is easy, and the reports give us feedback about our campaigns. To my mind, Sendinblue is the best email router on the market. The interface is clear, and the plan is simple and transparent. Everything was in French, with real professionals on the other end of the line (or email) providing technical assistance with the configuration of our account, for example, or setting up automation.

Accessible and effective

The follow-up is great; you feel supported from day one. The prices are affordable and the service couldn't be better. The human factor is clearly present in their follow-up, and the customer service is fast and very efficient. I'm so glad I found it.
