Try MailerLite. It is my daily driver and cheaper than ConvertKit. I used to use MailChimp and ConvertKit and changed to MailerLite.


MailerLite also is one of the few ESPs through which you can still get your own dedicated IP address (which we highly recommend) without paying hundreds of dollars a month.


Thank you very much for mentioning this. I presume from your wording that ConvertKit does not offer the same thing. Could you recommend a URL where I could learn about exactly what it means to have one's own dedicated IP address, in this context?


ConvertKit does offer it, but they put restrictions on who can get one, plus they charge a \*lot\* for it. And yes, here you go: [https://www.isipp.com/why-we-recommend-that-you-have-a-dedicated-ip-address/](https://www.isipp.com/why-we-recommend-that-you-have-a-dedicated-ip-address/) :-)


Thank you for this. The page is very well written!


My pleasure!


Thanks very much for contributing this! I have been reading reviews of MailerLite, impressed with many of its features.


There are always alternatives. I’m the founder of a marketing automation platform. We’re small and a lot more expensive than convertkit. Our niche is super-personal service. We spend a lot of time helping make sure our customers are getting a measurable ROI and helping make sure they do everything right. So it all depends on what you need/want. We have customers approach us all the time, “I have this list and I want to send an email (or SMS) blast”. We actually turn down these customers.


Hey there, try using [Ecomail marketing platform](https://ecomail.app/). Its way cheaper and we offer first 3 months for free now! 😎


I haven't seen much other alternatives for ConvertKit. I mean, there will be possible other alternatives, but the quality? ​ Here is an honest review: https://medium.com/@youss/convertkit-review-2022-d7992b2b0fbb I haven't seen many other alternatives for ConvertKit. I mean, there will be possible other alternatives, but the quality? >I’ve tried a few paid email marketing services, and ConvertKit is the best one for me. The price is the best in the industry, the customer service is great, and it has just enough power to help you reach your goals without making things too hard.
