Start the comparison Mailchimp vs Mautic

Comparison on very basic Plan: On Free Plan

The very basic plan is its free plan. In their free plan, they offer email list for 2000 subscriber and email credit of 12000 per month.

And please don’t be in a confusion that you can use all those 12000 email credits in a day if you want. Of course, you can’t. Simply think about it, if a customer is containing 2000 subscriber, will Mailchimp allow them to send 12000 emails in a day?

They are very good with pricing and always makes a kind of pricing which should look attractive but vogue.

Best results from Mautic can get only via 2 sources. 1st is MediaPropel and another is Mautic.com.

Why are we considering MediaPropel as the first choice? You’ll know it in next some lines.

If we will talk about Mautic.com’s first and lowest plan than yes, they are also offering the basic plan as ‘Free Plan’. In their free plan they offering services for very limited subscribers with a daily limit of email sending.

Basically, they offer this free account only to test the application. Because in their free plan you can’t import of contact list even in the list no. of subscribers are under limits.

Mautic too resists users to use approx. 70% of their features are unavailable in their free plan like you can’t import your contact list if you are on free plan.

Here at MediaPropel, we don’t offer any free plan. We are Managed Application Hosting Provider so we don’t charge for the application. Because Mautic is an open-source application and it comes for free and no restriction so we also don’t want to bind you in any restriction.

Mailchimp vs Mautic Pricing comparison: Basic Paid Plan

Now, from here Mailchimp start to trick your mind and push you to spend more & more for less. Even you’ll can’t think of any other alternatives, because on internet ads and in Google search most of the Email marketing service provider which you see, follow the same pricing measures.

First, we will discuss on mautic.com’s plan. They have the lowest starting plan is from $500. That is much more than expected. Even after that too price can be increased, depends upon your no. of subscribers.

Because the lowest pricing we offer you here so we will use our pricing as base pricing for the Mailchimp vs Mautic pricing comparison.

Here at media propel, our second plan is for $199 and we name that plan as ‘Silver’ plan. In our Silver Plan, we suggest our customers keep up-to 75K contact. Yes, mark the word. We suggest not bind them. They can keep more than that but the cause of excessive contacts application fluency may get affected. In our any plan there is no any feature restrictions, in our every plan you are open to using all the features of Mautic. Only our pricing will change on no. of subscribers and Email credits.

At the same time for the same no. of subscribers, you’ll have to pay approx. $574. You’ll pay $375 for email credit and $199 for pro subscription. So your total billing amount will $574.

In this plan, we allow 250K monthly emails credit and MailChimp allow 900K emails credit. But $375 extra bucks for 650K email credit? Is that a fair deal?

MailChimp vs Mautic: Pricing Comparison (High-End Plans)

Same like this plan, in our next plan (Gold) we provide 500K emails credit for 150K subscribers at $499. Where Mailchimp charge $675 + $199 for the same no. of subscribers with the 1800K mail credits.

Here at mediapropel we are providing the 500K mail credit and you can buy other 1300K mail credit from Amazon SES in just $130. So your total costing will $629 for 150K + subscribers with 1800K email credits.

So, in this deal, you can save $245 for the same no. of subscribers with the same no. of email credits.

So, as you can see in each and every plan we are offering you very dynamic pricing with huge saving. MediaPropel always believes in offering the services at the lowest cost. Our each and every plan is well tailored and customized for small businesses and Bloggers.

Generally, all Plugins got update very soon after new release of WordPress. But if you’re using any free plugins and community behind that plugin is behaving like dead than you may not get any update ever.

Mautic vs HubSpot: Full comparison with every Features and Capability

Mautic vs HubSpot: Full comparison with every Features and Capability

Actually Mautic vs HubSpot is quite unfair to compare, because HubSpot is not only providing marketing automation tool. On HubSpot you have option to use the Marketing Automation too which is called ‘Marketing Hub’ and sales automation and management tool ‘Sales Hub’. Recently Hubspot also launches the CRM (Customer Relationship Management Tool).

But we will talk here only about ‘Marketing Hub’ of Hubspot which is Marketing automation tool and its very famous, I bet you already have heard about this produce before. On the other hand Mautic is only developed for Marketing Automation and it is very good it its own work.

We will compare Mautic vs Hubspot here on different-different parameters and will figure out which is the best one. And because Mautic is free to distribute and Open-Source so any one can install it on their server. But without proper installation it could create some cumbersome to use, so we will refer the MediaPropel installation, Prices and Features.

Let’s start with the Lead Generation and Maintenance:

 

Mautic vs HubSpot (On the base of No. of Contact)

Except free plan of Hubspot there is 4 plans and MediaPropel have 4 plans too:

HubSpot

Plan Name: Starter ($50)

100 Contacts

Plan Name: Basic ($200)

100 contacts + $100 per month per 1000 additional contact

Plan Name: Professional ($800)

1,000 contacts + $50 per month per 1000 additional contact

Plan Name: Enterprise ($2400)

10,000 contacts + $10 per month per 1000 additional contact

Mautic

Plan Name: Bronze ($49)

Best For 25,000 Contacts

Plan Name: Silver ($200)

Best For 75,000 Contacts

Plan Name: Gold ($499)

Best For 1,50,000 Contacts

Plan Name: Platinum (Contact for Price)

Unlimited Contact* (Up to 7,50,000)
As you can see here the huge difference in price. Even We are comparing Mautic on MediaPropel with the server, maintenance and support cost. If you are great knowledgeable person in terms of networking and server then Mautic will cost approx. nothing for you.

Suppose you opt for the starter plan in Hubspot and Bronze in MediaPropel, both cost you same but the difference is huge. If you are thinking that Hubspot cost you more cause of some great features or more features than Mautic then, you’ll be very clear about that too. When we will compare these both on the basis of features.

Here talk on the basis of contacts. In starter plan you doesn’t have option to increase the no. of contacts, but at the same time on MediaPropel at same cost you can manage 25,000 contact. And now in Industtry no one will offer you 25K contacts in their basic plan.

One more thing, we are comparing here Mautic vs Hubspot, but Mautic which we offer here at MediaPropel under Manged Application Hosting. So ‘Bronze’ Plan is best for 25K contacts, it doesn’t mean you can’t add more contact. But the server configuration what we offer under this plan is Best for 25K contacts. When you’ll about to reach at the milestone we’ll disturb you a bit to pull this factor in light. So you can upgrade and experience the flawless experience of Marketing Automation.

Mautic vs HubSpot (In terms of Lead Nurturing)

 

For lead nurturing there are many of tools in both the applications. Hubspot and Mautic both will stand approx. at the same position if we will talk about the features included for lead maintenance and nurturing. But the main difference is the price, for every feature which is needed in the lead nurturing will only you’ll get in the ‘Enterprise’ plan and that will cost you $2400 per month, but on MediaPropel you can use all the feature of Mautic from the first ‘Bronze’ plan of $49. Here at Mediapropel we offer to use the Mautic’s feature without any limitation. Only we suggest to upgrade the plan according to no. of contact for flawless performance.

And yes of course, there is in the highest plan of HubSpot you’ll find some features which are not included into Mautic till yet. Those features are in pipeline and they are developing now, like:

          Predictive Lead Scoring                                Custom Revenue Reporting        

          Attribution Reporting                                   Goal Based Nurturing

Now let’s compare on the basis of Automation Features:

Automation Features Comparison (Mautic vs HubSpot)

 

Here to for Automation Features both the applications will stand at the same position. Only difference is the price, because all the features of ‘Marketing Hub’ will unlock at the ‘Enterprise’ plan which will cost you $2400.

Suppose you opt the Enterprise plan and comparing it with Mautic then you’ll get:

  • Call to action –              Landing Page                     –              Custom Form
  • Call-to-action –              Campaign Creation          –              Custom Event Reporting

These all options you’ll get into both the apps. But you’ve to pay the heavy amount for these all in HubSpot.

Mautic vs HubSpot comparison on the basis of Integration

 

Integration is one of the most important capability of any marketing automation tool or email marketing tool. Mautic provides wide range of Integration option with it, you can even integrate is with the mailchimp, twitter, facebook, CRMs and many more. Bi-directional integration is only done by the Salesforce till now, other major CRMs and ERPs are under the pipeline and they will release soon in next some updates.

On the other hand Marekting Hub of Hubspot have approx. same features as Mautic. This could also integrate with the ‘Salesforce’, but only in Professional or above packages. It means if you are using Salesforce and want integrate with the HubSpot’s marketing hub then at least you have to pay or opt for the $800 or above plans. It doesn’t mean you’ll pay $800 for Marketing Hub because you are using Salesforce and you only have 1000 contact? It’s quite unpractical, right? So, after paying the heavy amount of $800 you have to pay $50 per 1000 additional contacts. According to your business size you can calculate you spending, if you’ll go with the Marketing Hub.

Now, you have a general idea of Mautic vs HubSpot comparison in terms of their Integration capability. Now, lets have a look on Mautic’s full potential of Integration till now.

Here is the full list of Mautic Integration option you get with the MediaPropel:

Mautic vs HubSpot(Features wise)

Mailchimp’s main area of function is to store the leads, track them, send them mail according to campaign and have a record of campaign. Mailchimp is not very good in marketing automation and website’s lead tracking.

The major secret power of Mailchimp is its integration compatibility. Here Mailchimp show it’s 16 years’ experience, and make this application is able to integrate easily with hundreads of other applications. Many of names of application in this list will new for you even, but yeas Mailchimp can integrate with them too.

Go ahead with article and you’ll get the answer of all your doubts and. At the end of article, you’ll found yourself on the very determined, precise and confirm decision. These all was the short introduction of both the application, now start the comparison.

First Have a look on feature list of both oh these platforms:

As we can see both platforms are approx. equal in terms of features but Mailchimp named this bet cause of more fluid integration with lot of application. This vast difference is cause of years of experience. Mailchimp is working in this industry from last 16 years and from its 1st day, they charge for their service. On the other hand, Mautic release first time for public in 2014, and its open source.

I think, now you got the point, Why Mautic vs Mailchimp is meaningful?

Mautic is new, open-source but rich in feature and fully customised. Mailchimp has very limited access to customize it. Experts at MediaPropel push the mautic beyond limits and let you explore a little bit more than its official features and official documentation.

Limitation of Applications (Mautic vs Mailchimp)

In this Globe nothing is perfect, everything has some cons and limitations. These limitation sometimes may intentional and sometimes accidentially or cause of limited knowledge of programmer. Which can be sort out later, by more skilled programmer.

Intentional limitation generally occurs causes of security purpose and its worthful. We too love to have some less feature instead of bundles of insecure feature.

There is listed below some limitation of Mautic:

Mautic is very promising application and if you’ll use it once you found it very useful and handy. But somewhere, few of its features are under improvement which can be consider as its limitation. The Biggest Limitation of Mautic is its integration capability. Mautic can be integrate with approx. most famous CRMs and other Email related applications. Because Mautic is open source application so, if you are aspired to get some help by core developer team then it’s not possible, till you move for hosted version of Mautic, which cost you minimum $99. Here MediaPropel comes into scene and deploy you much better service and support by Mautic experts. Experts at MediaPropel won’t let you feel that you are using an open source application. Even limitation of Mautic that it is Open-Source, get converted into its one major benefits and we push this application beyond the limits and make it more perfect then its official release.

Limitations of Mailchimp:

Mailchimp is one of the market leader and very old and established name but it doesn’t mean this application haven’t any limitation for users. It has, as we already say nothing is perfect in the world. Mailchimp has some limitations like you have very limited access for templates and landing pages. This application let you customize the templates and landing pages but you’ll lack somewhere to get the full access and have to customize them under their defined boundries.

The major limitation of Mailchimp is it’s Terms of usage. This section generally be untouched by customers and we blindly click on “I agree” button. Their term os usage may be harsh for you and let me tell you one thing that they are very strict with their terms and without wasting a second they can suspend your account. You can loose control on your account and in worst case you can loose your list too.

There is the list of content which are prohibited on Mailchimp:

  • Emails offering to sell illegal goods or services
  • Emails that violate CAN-SPAM Laws
  • Pornography/sexually explicit content
  • Escort and dating services
  • Pharmaceutical products
  • Work from home, make money online, and lead generation opportunities
  • Gambling services or products
  • Multi-level marketing
  • Affiliate marketing
  • Credit repair and get out of debt opportunities
  • List brokers or list rental services
  • Selling “Likes” or followers for a social media platform

These are looks very fairly written terms but, sometimes you can get stuck in these. Especially if you are a Blogger, freelancer or your main earning source is Affiliate Marketing. Mailchimp will not even let you send the affiliate link or any money making kind of promotional mail. They will not suspend your account on your first mail, but if someone complaint against you than they will immediately suspend your account. And as I mentioned earlier in worst case you can lose your list too.

Benefits of Mailchimp over Mautic

If you are using self hosted version of Mautic without any good hosting partner than it could be a headache for you instead of ease in Marketing Automation. You should be a skilled IT engineer with proper experience in the field of servers and networking. But at MailChimp there is no headache for servers and all. Here you’ll pay for your plan and rest of the things they will take care of. You can also use Mautic as simple as Mailchimp. For this you have to choose MediaPropel as your Mautic hosting partner and all the things will take care by MediaPropel, even if you’re new with Mautic then Experts at MediaPropel will train you too. Yes, they will not charge you a single penny even extra then your subscription charge.

Benefits of Mautic over Mailchimp

If you are using Mautic hosting at MediaPropel for your marketing automation than you can use it flawlessly without any interruption. Here we are to take care of anything, if there is any problem. As we mentioned in limitation of Mailchimp tab that you can’t send the contents which are marked as prohibited in mailchimp, but in Mautic you can send these kind of contents too through your own mail server. Because here at MediaPropel too you’ll get suspend if we will detect this kind of content in your account or any suspicious activity. But you can create your own mail server and we will setup that here and you are free to send anything.

Undoubtedly, Mailchimp can integrate with each and every CRM and CMS. Afterall they are in the market from last 16 years and Mautic is very fresh in comparison of them. But at which pace Mautic is developing its remarkable and very soon it will stand near to mailchimp.
