Klaviyo Aggregated Reviews
I moved to MailChimp for the time being. Not sure how Klaviyo is going to win me back.
Klaviyo have it all covered. Use Klaviyo. It can do email lists, abandoned cart recovery, custom email templates( not just custom user name, way more than that) and more.
I’d strongly suggest using Klaviyo. It has great potential and free upto first 250 users.
Yeah I’ve got klaviyo and I don’t want to sound dumb but I’m not really understanding how to use it.
If you use klaviyo, you can add custom properties to a customers profile via the API.
This requires custom coding, so if you’re not a developer you’d want to pay one.
But essentially you can push custom properties to a users profile via klaviyo and then klaviyo would store it and allow you to build email lists around those properties or do whatever you want with them
The best thing about this, is if you’re GDPR compliant you can track all this info in the “background” as a user interacts with your site, and they wouldn’t be annoyed by some pop up or whatever
Klaviyo – If you aren’t emailing daily, you are leaving tons of money on the table. If you are cloning/duplicating without changing out imaging, products, or content, you are emailing half-assed.
If you provide genuine content and great emails, your emails can generate thousands of dollars in sales a day. We really love the functionality and ease of using Klaviyo vs other services.
One of our companies is an eCom advertising agency with a couple hundred clients. Based on sheer numbers, the clients use Klaviyo the most, followed by ActiveCampaign and then Drip…at least last time I checked a few months ago.
I actually prefer Drip slightly over AC because it is a more modern architecture and fully tag-based. It wins in many corner cases, IMO. Klaviyo is also awesome, of course, with some pros and some cons over the others.
Some good tips. I really like how Klaviyo and probably other providers as well but Klaviyo specifically lets you test out a couple variations of subject lines, it sends the email to say 20% of the list, sees which gets the most opens and then sends the remaining emails out with that header.
Klaviyo can do the segmentation, but you still have to set the strategy. That’s wheee most people come up short. Start with something simple.
I love klaviyo for my clients. They are purpose built for ecommerce and their Shopify integration is off the hook (and adding new features all the time). Plus they have super support – live chat and email. If you’ve ever tried to ask a question at mail chimp you know why this is important. I’ve waited weeks for a response from mail chimp and even then only got a link to a support article I’d already read.
Klaviyo can definitely do the segmentation you’re after and if you’ve never done any email marketing you’re in for a treat. Every time you send an email you will (most likely) make money.
Definitely start warming up you list again so you have some engaged readers to send to for the upcoming holiday season.
Get started by emailing the people who have subscriber or Opened an email in the last 4 months.
Klaviyo is about all you’ll need Imo
Man go for Klaviyo and forget everything is else. It’s just amazing.
We’re moving from omnisend to klaviyo, way more functionality for not much more. One thing I do like about omnisend is you can easily create landing pages hosted by omnisend that catches emails. Klaviyo does this too, but you have to take the code and apply it to a page in your theme. Same same but different.
I’m currently using Klaviyo for my work on a Bigcommerce store and looking for cheaper alternatives as Klaviyo really don’t appear to be improving their offering.
Klaivyo all the way. The only time you should use something else would be for larger more Omni channel businesses. But for most businesses on shopify it’s klaviyo all the way.
Jlaviyos great but for many people it’s not worth the added expense. We pay 2600 for klaviyo a comparable plan on mailchimp would be 600. Klaviyo is amazing but I could get by with mailchimp
Klaviyo> Mailchimp. Period. Klaviyo was made for ecommerce and has a TON of features that come with it. It’s flow system is extremely robust. I guarantee you, Mailchimp won’t cut it. Try Klaviyo.
For me Klaviyo is a no-brainer, as is Postscript SMS
Both drive huge revenue for abandoned carts and marketing campaigns to existing customers.
Email Marketing – Klaviyo (has the most robust features for email marketing automation and segmenting + the dynamic syncing with FB audiences is amazing)
Having this same situation. I did quite a bit of research and I decided on Klaviyo. It’s more expensive than other platforms but I’d say it’s also more powerful and more user-friendly.
My company was considering Klaviyo as an ESP solution not too long ago because MailChimp could no longer support the growth of the business. Ultimately, my company chose to go with a company called Retention Science, it appears that my marketing lead really like their platform compared to Klaviyo.
My company used Klaviyo in the past but it took too much time and effort to fully utilize the tool so now we use Retention Science for our email marketing needs. They do everything Klaviyo does but without the hassle. Our head of Marketing is a huge fan because the platform is easy and intuitive. I think Dollar Shave Club is one of their clients. Their price point is about the same as Klaviyo. Would recommend.
It really depends on your individual business, but Klaviyo’s Flow Library is a great place to start. Once you see what kind of things you can do, think more critically about what your ideal customer lifecycle looks like and how you can tailor your emails to fit that.
For example, maybe you sell an item and then a replacement part for it, that typically requires replacement after 90 days. You can set up a flow specifically for people who purchased that item reminding them to pick up a replacement part 90 days later.
Look into different ways to reward repeat customers, give suggestions to people who have viewed certain products, give first time purchasers some insight into your business and follow up once they’ve received their order.
This can all be achieved simply or more in depth with the flow builder, but the best way is really to get to know what it can do and from there think about what kind of content or offers would be most helpful at each stage of the customer lifecycle.
Mailchimp is the pits. Klaviyo is a million times better and its not that much more expensive.
Know that Klaviyo is different in that the plan you choose is for the max number of emails you can send at one time NOT the max number of contacts you can have.
I have a 10k list, but I’m on the 2k plan, because segmentation.
Depending on your list, that could more than cut the monthly price in half.

As a web agency we never could and never will be able to escape the urge of building things.
Among million other things we played with an idea of text-based games and the last piece that was missing was the story itself. So via in-house outreach platform we found two established writers that believed in the project and agreed to participate.
Shout out to Richard Abbott who wrote Fraud on Thetis and Eva Pohler who sent us a huge draft we are still reading through.
At some point we realised that list building, fetching contact details & outreach tech work just as well for b2b lead generation
v0.3 Once, we fell in love with ecommerce, because of short feedback cycles on marketing & development efforts.
Today we ship into production inhouse SaaS project - AVOKADO - the web app for learning languages with flash cards.
The year after we built it we realised how long is the road map ahead & what resources we'd need to promote it and decided to put it on hold.
One day as we ship GRIN tech v3.0 into production we'll distrupt the language learning market with Avokado.
We love Wordpress and recently shipped two plugins into open beta for commercial sale.
v0.2.1 King The Monk - wordpress plugin to virally grow your email list
