ConvertKit vs Prospect.io Summary

ConvertKit

Bloggers and content creators will benefit the most from ConvertKit, mainly because of its unparalleled email marketing. The software’s visual automation editor is a rare yet efficient feature that simplifies workflow while also making it more effective and helping to improve conversions

ConvertKit gives its users conditional tags for the segmentation of separate emails and lists, a feature that helps you to identify special contacts and send them customized emails and add them to segmented funnels.

Sending broadcast emails is as good as ever with this ConvertKit, as it empowers your campaigns to the point where you can see unprecedented open rates for your emails.

With ConvertKit, you can even target the customers who you could not convert at first, which is a feature by using a checkbox that will “resend to unopened recipients”, which is a much-needed feature that is perfect for increasing conversions and ROI.

This tool also allows you to share your automation/funnels with other team members who can view it with a free trial of 14-days if they do not own an account on ConvertKit.

ConvertKit’s cons are its split testing features and a lack of detailed reporting.

Prospect.io

If integrating with a plethora of different services and measuring results is your focus, go for Prospect.io. This software offers its users a chrome extension for improving and streamlining their prospecting efforts.

The major plus point of this tool is that it helps you generate your lead’s email addresses with verification, which eliminates incorrect email addresses and also bounced emails. Prospect.io offers unparalleled integration to its users, allowing you to sync with many of the most renowned tools on the market.

Businesses that use cold emailing as an important part of their sales campaigns and are looking to eliminate the time-consuming part of the process will be impressed with Prospects ability to used its top-of-the-line automation to remove the margin for human error.

Moreover, with Prospect.io you can send follow-up emails to retain a prospects interest with the goal of converting them down the line. This software’s user interface is not only functional but looks great as well, a combination that is absent in most automation software these days.

Prospect.io’s slightly high price and inconsistent customer support are two of its biggest cons.

Key Differences

These tools have a lot to offer with their unique features and functions. Both have first-rate lead generation capabilities. However, ConvertKit has the edge over Prospect.io because of its better customer support and user-friendly interface.
