Discover Sendinblue, a cheaper alternative to ActiveCampaign

It's time to choose an email platform that's affordable and intuitive.

Sendinblue: the same features at half the price of ActiveCampaign

Sendinblue works out a lot cheaper than ActiveCampaign for sending bulk emails.

This is because ActiveCampaign charges you based on your number of contacts while Sendinblue lets you store unlimited contacts at no extra cost. This way, you only pay for email usage and not for growing your business.

Sendinblue’s free plan offers a flexibile way to test-drive the platform by sending up to 300 emails a day. ActiveCampaign, on the other hand, only offers a 14-day free trial limited to 100 contacts and 100 emails.

Send a monthly newsletter to 2500 contacts $25 $61

Sendinblue: Manage your marketing and transactional emails all from one platform

If your business relies on time-sensitive transactional emails (order updates, password resets, etc.), you’ll be able to send these through Sendinblue’s dedicated SMTP server. Sendinblue lets you manage both marketing and transactional emails from the same platform as part of your monthly email plan. 

ActiveCampaign does not have a transactional email server. For this you’ll have to use another service which will mean paying even more for email.   

Available Features Sendinblue ActiveCampaign
Transactional emails Paid add-on (Mandrill)
Email marketing campaigns
Advanced marketing automation
Send time optimization
Real-time reporting
Click heat map
HTML email editor
Landing page builder
Telephone support From $65/month From $279/month

Deliverability: Land your emails in the inbox with Sendinblue

At Sendinblue, deliverability is a top priority. We work hard to protect the sender reputation of our shared IPs.

  • We have a rigorous anti-spam policy and account validation process.
  • Our team of deliverability experts actively monitor servers and work with clients to resolve any issues.
  • Our platform automatically removes hard bounce contacts from your campaigns.

They explain it best

An accessible, affordable tool

Sendinblue is very easy to learn, and lets you design attractive, effctive emails that combine images, text and links to sites or documents. Importing contact files is very intuitive, and the system automatically checks for any duplicate entries. It also manages unsubscribes and blacklists people automatically. What's more, statistics on opens and clicks help us fine-tune our analysis of active contacts. All at a very affordable price! I highly recommend it.


Truly practical and intuitive

For our current needs, Sendinblue is free, practical, and intuitive... Importing contacts is convenient, managing newsletters is easy, and the reports give us feedback about our campaigns. In my opinion, Sendinblue is the best emailing software on the market. The interface is clear, and plans are simple and transparent... Real professionals were at the other end of the line (or email) for technical assistance with our account setup, for example, or using automation.

Accessible and effective

The follow-up is great; you feel supported from day one. The prices are affordable and the service couldn't be better. The human factor is clearly present in their follow-up, and the customer service is fast and very efficient. I'm so glad I found it.
