Con Annual lock-in contract
By default, the contracts are annual, but it would be preferable to have it monthly considering that they have pricey packages. We are talking about $200 per month (basic) that becomes a $2400 LOCK-IN annual contract. Having contracts by month allows you to terminate the contract earlier with lesser loss than having to pay an entire year's cost.
Con Paid technical support
It can be quite frustrating say you are already facing technical issues, and still, you need to pay their technical support to have this addressed.
Con Lack of customization options and templates for your mails
Con Too simple AB testing
No testing for delivery time, email body content, automations, web page visit, replies, shares, date dependency.
Con No unsubscribing
No easy unsubscribe function, instead of that service they have a segmentation filter "cold subscriber".
Con No lead scoring
Con No page tracking
Con Two times less than Drip and ActiveCampaign triggers&actions
"If this happens(trigger), that happens(action)"
In ConvertKit only 6 triggers&actions on 30d.12m.18y.
