ACTIVECAMPAIGN VS. MARKETO
How much time have you spent trying to figure out Marketo?
Why do G2 reviewers say ActiveCampaign beats Marketo in every single comparable category? Because Marketo’s complicated all-in-one solution limits you (and your budget). That’s why 150,000 businesses in 170 countries use ActiveCampaign, the leader in Customer Experience Automation.

Stop paying too much for features you don't want
(while not getting the ones you do)
If you search Marketo’s website for pricing, you won’t find it. Why does Marketo hide how much it costs? Beginner plans start at over $1,000 a month, 4X the price of ActiveCampaign’s advanced Enterprise tier. Marketo also requires that you contact a sales rep for a demo. ActiveCampaign offers a free 14-day trial that lets the platform speak for itself.
