I have used Convertkit for the past 2 years with my online business and as my email list has from zero to over 3,000 and I am thankful for that.
Let’s just cut to the chase, here are a few reasons why I have switched:
Over the past 6 months, I have found myself not wanting to write emails through convertkit because the editor changed and in order for me to get prettier emails I would either have to type in an html code or buy someone’s template for the code.
As my email list grew so did my subscription pricing. I started paying $29/m with Convertkit bur for the past few months I have paid $79/m and well that’s a lot to pay when you don’t feel like writing emails!
here’s an example of Convertkit’s pricing:
With flodesk, you get unlimited emails and unlimited subscribers for $38/m, or if you use my affiliate link or code LINDSEYHAZEL you can get 50% off!

Now when I started using Convertkit I was teaching a completely different niche and had WAY too many opt-ins to my email list. I was learning and testing out a lot of things. The good thing about Convertkit is that you can add tags, sort your list in all kinds of ways, integrate with a LOT of software, and more.
I think that Convertkit had too many features than what I really needed for my business and I got overwhelmed.
Flodesk is really easy to use and the templates are gorgeous. After sending my first email with Flodesk I had over 30% open rate, 93.2% deliverability and under 20 people unsubscribed. That’s HUGE for a list of over 3,000!
Here’s the example of the email that I sent to my list:
Flodesk does not have a lot of the things that Convertkit does but Flodesk is really new and still in beta. But if this is how good and easy it will be in beta, I can’t imagine what it will be like once it has launched.
Another perk about using Flodesk is the Flodesk Insiders Facebook Community. This is a great resource for when you get stuck with trying to use their tool, need feedback on something, or want to put in a request for an upcoming update.
Have you tried Flodesk yet? What do you think about this tool???
