7 Reasons Why We Switched from Mailchimp to Flodesk

July 6, 2021

Ready to stop fighting the Instagram algorithm with the hope that your potential customers find you? Wishing there was some way to talk directly with your favorite clients from the past and future? 

If you haven’t started creating your email newsletter and building your client list, now is the time. Well, yesterday was the time, but today will do. 

There are pros and cons to choosing any platform or app for your business. That’s why it’s important to test other options and see if there is a better way to serve your customers. For example,  we are big fans of using Mailchimp for our email newsletters and love that they’ve supported our long-time friends at Creative Mornings. We aren’t here to trash talk Mailchimp, but we are here to explain why our business is delighted with our decision to switch to Flodesk. We’ve been using Flodesk since it was founded in 2019. It’s been vetted, and it passes all of our tests.


#1 One monthly price, unlimited subscribers

Unlike competitors, Flodesk doesn’t penalize you for growing your list. Whether you’re looking to start a small newsletter or build an email marketing empire, you pay the same monthly price. When your business grows, Flodesk is there to support you no matter how big. 

#2 Creative freedom

For the first time in email marketing, you can use custom fonts and image collages that look good. Now you don’t have to try to make an email builder work for you. Flodesk does everything for you. 

#3 Click and Drag Email Builder

Want to look like you have an entire marketing team crafting and coding your every email? Look no further! Flodesk puts the power of a professional designer in your pocket. Their click and drag email builder makes it easier than ever to create beautifully branded emails (no coding required). 

#4 Templates designed to convert

Flodesk has a library of gorgeous templates to help you welcome, nurture, and convert subscribers into customers to get you started. Built-in partnership with other successful entrepreneurs, each template is designed to help you up to your email game. Oh, and customizing them is simple. A few clicks and the templates transform to match your brand’s unique look and feel. 

#5 Integrated Social Media Connection

Want an easy way to connect email subscribers with the incredible content you’re sharing on social? Flodesk has you covered. Easily integrate your Instagram account into outgoing emails to showcase your most recent posts. Create a horizontal gallery or a pin-board style collage in seconds. Try it for free and prepare to be mind blown.

#6 Supporting Female Founeders

Rebecca Shostak and Martha Bitart are amazing women. They set out to simplify beautiful email marketing practices and make designing and drafting emails absurdly easy for all businesses and they’ve succeeded. They make it approachable for everyone, no matter the size or age, or industry of your business. AND, they launched their business without any funding.

#7 Simplicity is Our Favorite Thing

We are a huge fan of minimalism, and this is what Flodesk is all about. If you are a large business with hundreds of employees and need more bells and whistles with your email marketing, Mailchimp is probably the best option. But if you’re a small business looking for simple, clean, and beautifully designed emails that are fun to create and fun for your customers to read, then Flodesk is for you.
