Why I Switched to Flodesk from ConvertKit

July 25, 2019

  1. Hey Nat! How’s the tagging for subscribers compared to Convertkit? I’m a huge CK fan because of how I can organize my list- but Flodesk has a lot of great features that have me . How’s the experience after opt-in?

    • Natalie says:

      This is one of the areas I love the most! You organize your list with Segments, and you can Segment manually (say, importing your ConvertKit list) or automatically (subscribed to Lead Magnet). Tagging is done by their system so you can have more color on each subscriber and it makes it so much easier, for example, in my CRM view I can see what device a subscriber prefers and even add custom fields like last time we spoke, phone number, and so on.

    This looks so awesome! Does it connect with WordPress or anything to do automated new blog post emails or is it just for single blasts?

  3. Meagan says:

    I’d like to try out a trial but I have a couple of questions for them and can’t find an email ANYWHERE. Do you happen to know how to contact them?

  4. Erinn says:

    Hi Natalie!
    I just found you and subscribed to your newsletter. Looking forward to learning from you and the community you’ve created.
    I was looking for your Flodesk discount code so I can sign up but didn’t see it in your article.
    Thank you for your review of Flodesk- I was about to spend crazy money on another program but God placed this in front of me instead. Thank you!!!

  5. […] few days later, Natalie dropped a blog post about switching email marketing platforms from ConvertKit to a new service she had been beta testing, […]

  6. Samantha says:

    AHHH I’m SOLD– BUT, I need an integration with Thinkific before I can make the switch. Any idea on when that feature would be available?? DYING to switch now!! Also, how’s the customer service?? I have a free trial but don’t see where I can contact support or chat like Convertkit ;/

    • Natalie says:

      Hm, I know they have a few big integrations in the pipeline. I’m not certain if/when Thinkerific is on the list, but you can always reach out to their team to find out!

  7. Danielle says:

    Hello 🙂 So, is that discount for just one month, or a lifetime? I’m not quite in the market yet for a paid email marketing system, but I’ve been looking around for cheap options so I have an idea down the road.

    • Natalie says:

      This is best part: LIFETIME. As long as you keep your account active and use the code NATALIE – you’ll get 50% off your subscription. Yayyy!

  8. Hi, Natalie – I signed up through you and have already been emailing Martha! Am really excited. Anyway, I have CK and my host (is that what it is called?) is GoDaddy. Can I keep my ConvertKit account alive AND make my Flodesk account live? I’m not sure I can do the verification on FD and keep CK alive. GoDaddy was ZERO help. Thanks for this!

    • Natalie says:

      Woohoo! Martha and the devs should be able to best answer this for you. I made the official switch from Convertkit so I no longer use their platform at all. (Excited to have you in the Flodesk family!)

  9. Tena says:

    What service do you use to process payments? I am currently an Infusionsoft user and would love to kick it to the side for something easier.

    • Natalie says:

      I run most of my payments through the HoneyBook platform (I’m primarily a service based business). For shop items, I currently use Shopify as well. There are a ton of payment processing options out there and you may be able to get an even better rate than what you’re getting through Infusionsoft.

  10. […] Franke Hayes  answered a discussion in the Flodesk Facebook group […]

  11. Thank you for sharing this Natalie- I too had gotten to the point where “I didn’t have the ability to bring them up to my high standards. I felt overwhelmed and therefore put email marketing on the back burner.”

    After trying out Flodesk for 30 minutes I’m making the switch!

    Love love love flodesk!

  12. Carlee says:

    Hi! I manage several newsletters and want to have them all in 1 place like Flodesk. Is that possible?

  13. Hey there!

    I’m interested in trying Flodesk but am wondering what the inbox deliverability rates are like?

    Do you have any insight on that?

    • Natalie says:

      Mine have been higher with Flodesk than they were before (averaging about 30% open rate to a list of over 15,000).

      • Suzanne says:

        Hi Natalie,

        I’m confused by this reply to Lisa’s question. You said, “Mine have been higher with Convertkit than they were before (averaging about 30% open rate to a list of over 15,000).”

        Lisa was asking about Flodesk’s deliverability. Was it a typo where you put CK, or do you not have deliverability information regarding Flodesk?

        Also, did I see correctly? You can only have one domain per account?

        • Natalie says:

          Yes! That’s a typo – fixing now. My rates are higher with Flodesk and still remain higher about a year later. I hope that is helpful.

  14. Elle says:

    Any possibility they let us use their addy like ConvertKit does?

  15. Connor says:

    Hi Natalie! Does Flodesk work with Squarespace sites? Thanks!

  16. Does this feature work with Squarespace?

  17. […] I first looked into making the switch to Flodesk, I wasn’t sure if the workflow features would be as powerful as the options I had at ConvertKit. […]

  18. Yesenia says:

    Does it have a forms feature like MailerLite?

  19. […] It’s loved and used by creatives such as Jenna Kutcher and Natalie Franke. […]

  20. […] provides a lot of flexibility for bloggers. That’s why many people have decided to make the switch. Firstly, it’s designed for people who learn better with easy visuals and simple UX design. […]
