EngageBay are the new kids on the block but fast becoming the preferred email marketing service for many startups and small businesses out there. They offer a wide array of email marketing templates powered by a simple drag and drop interface. Moreover, the segmentation and targeting functionalities are great.
The ability to personalize your emails, rich formatting options and an easy option to track your campaign performance makes EngageBay a great email marketing CRM software to go for.
But it’s the pricing that really stands out:
Up to 1,000: $0/mo
Up to 10,000: $11.99/mo
Up to 50,000: $39.99/mo
Unlimited Contacts: $63.99/mo
What we like about EngageBay: The amount of features it offers at a competitively low price point. Their flexible, customizable plans are good too. The user interface is simple and user-friendly and their support is commendable. It is a modern platform for small businesses that cannot afford higher-priced solutions.
What they should improve: Emails are branded so if you’d like to send emails without the EngageBay brand, you’d have to pay extra.
Who is this for: those who are looking for a powerful yet affordable tool to reach customers via different channels (emails, SMS, push notifications, etc). Also, in case you are looking for a free tool, they offer a decent deal for $0 a month.
