Looking for a Mailchimp alternative?
Try Freshmarketer - one of the best Mailchimp alternatives with
better engagement, superior automation, and advanced segmentation.
No more complicated functionalities. Create emails on a smooth and intuitive interface.
Avoid overage costs. Get access to the same functionalities without hidden charges.
No credit card required. Take all the paid-features for a spin, with no commitments.
Mailchimp recently released workflows with templates to choose from. It’s an exciting new feature, but you can’t play around with it. You can use it for simple use-cases like welcome emails, etc.
Freshmarketer's marketing automation, in comparison, extends way beyond simple auto-responders and can accommodate the most complex automation use cases. With Freshmarketer’s Journey Builder, you can build complex workflows effortlessly, from scratch.
Mailchimp's targeting and segmentation filters are very basic and with limited capabilities. Many Mailchimp users find managing lists very complicated.
With Freshmarketer, you can go beyond conventional segments and create smart segments with unlimited AND/OR combinations within minutes. You can filter your contacts with granularity and personalize every message.
Mailchimp has a lot of hidden costs with integration plug-in’s which will add more capability, but burn a hole through your pockets. Every Mailchimp pricing tier comes with an overage fee, so every plan is overly complicated.
Pay for what you see while using Freshmarketer. No fluff. As your business scales from small to mid-market to higher, Freshmarketer plans will keep up with your needs.
MailChimp used to be ideal for SMBs, but now all their valuable features are gated behind higher prices. For instance, the advanced segmentation feature is only available in the Premium plan that starts at $299. Their basic plan lacks functionalities, which used to be free once.
Freshmarketer, on the other hand, packages a lot more. In fact, you can try all the features for free for 21-days.
Mailchimp’s interface is not that intuitive and very complicated. There are thousands of tutorials to learn how to use it. Unfortunately, if you need any support, it is only available in the Premium plan. So if you’re stuck in importing contacts, or with a blocked account, you’re left stranded.
Freshmarketer is not only easy-to-use and intuitive, but its support is available 24/5 for all paid plans via Email and chat. We’ve got your back.

It’s very adaptive – allowing us to divert traffic, start a/b testing and begin tracking engagement with minimal setup effort.”
“It’s a bang for your buck. You get the same feature set as that of other highly priced CRO tools in the market. Freshmarketer is my all-in-one CRO hub.”
“I introduced it to the company I previously worked at after performing an extensive research of all the tools out there. After my research, I quickly realized that Freshmarketer is the only non-enterprise level tool that offers not only advanced CRO and personalization features but also heatmapping, form analytics, and screen recording. At my previous company, we used to have Hotjar and VWO which we replaced by Freshmarketer and saved a significant amount of money whilst seriously increasing our capability. When I arrived JLA, we were using Lucky Orange but we quickly switched to Freshmarketer.”
“Our primary use-case that we wanted to be addressed by Freshmarketer was Personalization. But we were writing our own custom scripts to accomplish that. Eventually, we migrated to Freshmarketer and it worked like a charm. The product totally has our recommendation.”
