Flodesk is a new and powerful email marketing platform that has blown up in the last year. Mailchimp vs Flodesk: 3 Reasons Why I Moved My Email Marketing From Mailchimp To Flodesk.
You’ve probably heard it all before how important it is to have a strong email list for your brand. Yeah, having your social platforms like Instagram is a great way to attract readers to your website. You don’t own them. Instagram does this often it will lock you out of your account with no warning! I’ve learned this the hard way last year. It’s probably happened to you before too. How will you communicate with your readers? Cue email lists!
Having an email list has so many advantages and best of all you own your list! Now that you know why having an email list is so important you might be thinking about which platforms are best to start your email list. For a while, Mailchimp! This is the popular choice for so many bloggers, don’t get me wrong it’s a great platform for starting but Mailchimp has its limitations. Recently, Flodesk launched and it has forever changed the way The Blog Social does email marketing.
Here are 3 Reasons Why I Moved My Email Marketing From Mailchimp To Flodesk
1. Easier To Use Workflows
Having workflows makes it so much easier to automate emails. One workflow every blogger should have is a welcome sequence. This is an essential, a sequence of emails you can set up for a new subscriber to receive when they signup to your mailing list. You want to build a connection with your audience, and creating a nurturing workflow sequence will be beneficial. Flodesk offers several workflow templates for you to choose from or you can create one from scratch.
Although Mailchimp does offer workflows called “automation” you have to be a paid member for this and it’s not as user-friendly, which brings me to my next point.
If you’ve used MailChimp before, I’m sure you’ve experienced many frustrations and the overwhelming feeling of where everything is and how things work. I’ve used MailChimp for years but dreaded using their platform as their template editor is outdated and lacks customisation.
Flodesk is a dream! The Flodesk team also recently made some enhancements to make things even more user-friendly which I had no idea was possible! Everything is streamlined, it’s minimal and straight to the point. Their template editor is absolutely beautiful – they also make it easier with having done for templates which you can simply make your own.
3. Stunning And Easy To Use Pop Up Forms
Mailchimp popup forms can’t compete with the beautiful forms you can create with Flodesk. It easily integrates with WordPress simply add the snippet code into your heading. The forms are beautiful and modern, unlike MailChimp’s outdated forms. Flodesk does offer 2 form options a full-page form, pop-up banner or you can ingrate it straight into your website.
