ConvertKit Pricing Summary
ConvertKit pricing is easy to understand. Their prices increase depending on the number of subscribers you have, and there are also a few differences in the features available. Prices start at $29 a month for a maximum of 1,000 contacts, $49 per month for up to 3,000 subscribers or $79 monthly for a list of 5,000 contacts. They also have a freemium plan for those with less than 1,000 subscribers, though it doesn’t include automations and just offers basic reporting.
They offer a higher plan called Creator Pro, too, which comes with the added bonus of advanced reporting, subscriber scoring and Facebook custom audiences.
ConvertKit will migrate your email list from another email tool for you at no extra cost on the Creator and Creator Pro plans.
Let’s check out the different features that the ConvertKit plans offer.
Sadly, their pricing is one of the areas they could improve, as they’re not cheap, especially if you take into account that ConvertKit lacks some crucial features (e.g. email designs and templates) – read our full review for more information. They are more expensive than average as you can see in our pricing comparison tool.
What’s the Difference Between Creator and Creator Pro?
There’s not a huge difference between the two paid plans, apart from the significant difference in price.
The additional features you’ll get with the Creator Pro plan are: Facebook custom audiences, subscriber scoring, newsletter referral system, advanced reporting and unlimited user accounts.
Additional ConvertKit Pricing Information
- All plans (including the free plan) include 30 premium landing page templates and allows you to create as many landing pages as you like.
- For paid plans, there’s a 30-day refund period, no questions asked.
- It comes with 70+ integrations.
- When your friend creates an account, you both can grow your list by 100 more subscribers for free.
- ConvertKit will let you purchase either monthly plans (you pay each month) or yearly plans (pay in advance for one year).
- If you decide to go with a yearly contract, you’ll get a 16% discount. However, you won’t get your money back if you choose to cancel the account part way through.
- If you go over the limit of your subscription plan, you’ll be automatically bumped to a higher level.
- No hidden fees, you won’t pay extra for storage, or other random services you don’t need.
ConvertKit is a bit of a unique tool as they primarily target bloggers and freelance creatives – they describe themselves as ‘Email marketing for creators’. Though they do offer some interesting features, such as the sale of digital products, they could do more to help out their target by adding email template designs and spam and design testing.
Considering they target solopreneurs or really small teams, it shocks me to see that their prices are among the highest in the industry. A very decent all-in-one email marketing tool, GetResponse, is much cheaper than ConvertKit.
Now that they have a free plan (which they didn’t always have), you can at least test out and benefit from many of their features with no added cost to your business until you go over the 1K mark. I also recommend you check out these free alternatives – most of these will be cheaper even when you move onto a paid plan.
