Email marketing is still alive, effective, and important in 2021. Reaching your customers and clients is more important than ever before, but as the email space gets more and more crowded email marketers must find a way to stand out. There are so many email platforms on the market today from ConvertKit, Mailchimp, Flodesk, etc. Today we are going to be sharing the pros and cons of Flodesk vs. Mailchimp. But, before we do that we want to share why email marketing is still relevant in 2021.

So, for these reasons, it’s time to determine which platform is best to create, send, and measures your email campaigns.
Mailchimp really is one of the leading email marketing tools in the world. By no means are we going to create a complete comprehensive list of MailChimp features, we are going to touch on some of the biggest!
Flodesk is the “new kid on the block” when it comes to email marketing and as of writing this email they are still in “beta mode.” What really sets them apart from its competitors is Flodesk is designed with beauty at the forefront of the platform.
Which email marketing platform is best for you is truly based on your business and email marketing needs. For us, we are a small business operating in the wedding and event space and do not need the complex features of Mailchimp. We fell in love with the Flodesk interface and the ease of use to design beautiful converting emails to share with our past clients and potential customers.

With that said, Flodesk may not be the answer to your email marketing needs. If you run an e-commerce site or are a large business needing complex email needs, personally I would suggest Flodesk is not right for you. As a company that is still in beta, I know they have a lot of features planned, but there is no set timeline for any updates to the platform.
Flodesk was built for small businesses to simplify email marketing, so users could create beautifully and converting emails with ease. If you are a start-up, mid-size or enterprise business, get in touch with Flodesk, as they do offer custom plans as well.
The bottom line is to do what is best for you, and your business. Try Flodesk on a free trial. Sign up for Mailchimp and see which platform you like better and fits the unique needs of your business. Our goal today was not to say which one is the answer for your business but to share what we believe are the best and worst features of Flodesk and Mailchimp.
We hope this will help you find an email marketing platform that works for you and your business. If you found this email you may also be interested in our other business resources.
