ACTIVECAMPAIGN VS. SENDINBLUE

Think you’ll save with Sendinblue? It’ll cost you

Sure, Sendinblue is cheaper, but doesn’t provide better value: While they claim to have all the same features as ActiveCampaign, you have to subscribe to their most expensive plans to get them. And no matter what, you’re missing out on ActiveCampaign’s better automation—the foundation for building the strong customer relationships that grow your business.

What sets ActiveCampaign apart from Sendinblue?

Send unlimited emails

Sendinblue limits the number of emails you can send a day. With ActiveCampaign, you get unlimited emails, so no matter what day it is or how many emails you previously sent, you can always get your campaigns out to the right contacts at the right time.

Do omnichannel for the same effort and cost as email marketing alone

Connect more meaningfully with your customers across channels including web, email, social media, SMS, and chat. Powerful automation and segmentation let you send the right message to the right person at the right time—and continue the conversation across channels as they advance in the customer journey.

Integrate the best transactional email services

Sendinblue provides both marketing and transactional emails. But a specialized transactional email provider is better equipped to preserve your sender reputation and ensure delivery. That’s why our approach is different. Get the best email marketing and transactional email by connecting ActiveCampaign to your preferred transactional email provider.

Get the best value

ActiveCampaign is the only company in the industry promising excellence in value, service and trust through our Customer Success Commitment. With ActiveCampaign, you get an industry-leading product for the best value, with flexible options and easy subscription management.

Drag and drop your way to best-practice marketing campaigns

Building an automation is as easy as reading a flowchart. The ActiveCampaign automation builder is specifically designed to be as easy to use as possible—and if you need help, we offer one-on-one support and detailed tutorials.
