When you're looking for a marketing solution to grow your business, you need one that will support you every step of the way. There’s no comparison: AWeber delivers more powerfully-simple features and support vs. ConvertKit.
With AWeber, you can get started for FREE — and get more on day 1 than you will with ConvertKit:
“I got frustrated with the customer service at ConvertKit when I was getting started. The 24-hour chat support made me wait 2-to-3 days to get a response. My experience with AWeber is different. Someone is always there to help!
Plus, AWeber is a bit less expensive than ConvertKit, which is always welcome.”
Compare the superior features and support you get with AWeber versus ConvertKit.
Get free migration services when you move from ConvertKit. We will move your email messages, subscriber contacts, automations, templates, landing pages, and more! You don’t have to lift a finger.

“I came to AWeber from ConvertKit because I got more bang for the buck, and I was able to connect to my readers in a way that ensured they would stay part of my community. As my business grew, email marketing took up more of my time, and I needed a straightforward solution that was easy to implement.
AWeber’s templates are easy to use and let me translate any idea I have without coding or relying on technical support.”
We know passionate entrepreneurs and creators don't always thrive on a 9 to 5 schedule. If your business is a side hustle, you don't have the luxury of working traditional hours. At AWeber, we're committed to helping you succeed around the clock. You can call, email, or live chat with AWeber's award-winning Customer Solutions Team, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
ConvertKit customer service no longer offers phone support or live chat support.
Getting into the inbox is the foundation of successful email marketing. You can spend hours crafting the perfect message, but if it goes to the spam folder, your subscribers won’t see it. Anyone can call themselves an email service provider, but finding a provider that owns and controls the infrastructure with an in-house deliverability team ensures the best delivery for you. Here at AWeber, we’re proud to say we own the full delivery process.
ConvertKit’s deliverability? It's outsourced to third parties.
AWeber’s email delivery team is staffed with experts to protect our customers’ email deliverability. Plus, we work closely with customers, educating them on industry best practices that will improve their email marketing strategies.
Split testing your emails gives you the chance to see what your audience prefers. It can also significantly improve your open and click-through rates and tell you which email resonates best with your audience. Being able to refine your emails based on the data you have can lead to more engaged readers, better click-through rates, and more sales.
We believe split testing is such an important feature that we don’t just limit split testing to subject lines. You can — and should — test many variables in your emails, including calls to action, headline text, personalization, button colors, imagery, content, time of day, and more. Conduct multi-variant email split tests with AWeber Pro. AWeber Pro also lets you split test sign up forms.
ConvertKit only lets you split test email subject lines on their paid plan and does not offer split test sign up forms on any subscription level.
You never get a second chance to make a first impression, so AWeber includes everything you need to create beautiful emails in our Free plan. You will get unrestricted access to a huge library of professionally-designed templates and stock images at no extra charge, full access to our drag and drop editor, AWeber’s AI-powered Smart Designer that creates beautiful, branded emails in seconds, and AWeber's HTML Editor to create your own custom HTML templates (if you like coding!).
ConvertKit offers a limited number of email templates and does not have an easy to use drag and drop email editor.
Web push notifications are short, one-time messages that appear on a user's desktop — usually in the corner of the screen — when they have a web browser open. Web push notifications instantly deliver direct and time-sensitive messages linking directly to a website, landing page, sign up form, or shopping cart.
AWeber wants everyone to take advantage of the power of web push notifications. That’s why AWeber's web push notifications are included in all plans for no additional cost. ConvertKit does not offer web push notifications on any of their plans.
At AWeber, we are committed to helping you succeed around the clock with our award-winning customer solutions team. You can call, email, or live chat with AWeber’s customer solutions team 24/7, without time restrictions, no matter which plan you select.
ConvertKit no longer offers phone support or live chat support on any plan.
With AWeber, you also have greater flexibility on how you set up your email lists. AWeber Pro lets you create multiple lists, or set up tags to segment your audience.
ConvertKit does not allow you to use multiple lists on any subscriber level.
AWeber's segmentation tools are much more powerful than ConvertKit's limited choices. AWeber lets you create segments based on whether subscribers open or click a message. Creating segments based on how your customers interact with your email is one of the most helpful types of segments you can create.
ConvertKit doesn't allow you to segment subscribers based on the messages they opened or clicked on.
Our email builder and vast template options allow you to create an experience, and brand style, that works best for your subscribers. ConvertKit does not offer a drag and drop email editor and has limited design template options for emails. In fact, if you want beautifully designed emails, ConvertKit may not be the solution for you.
ConvertKit outsources its email delivery to a third party. AWeber has an in-house email delivery team staffed with experts who are here to protect the deliverability of our customers.
AWeber includes web push notifications in all plans for no additional cost. ConvertKit does not offer web push notifications on any of their plans.
Both AWeber Free and AWeber Pro offer a free migration service to transfer your contacts and marketing assets to AWeber.
If you have less than 5,000 subscribers, ConvertKit only transfers contacts for customers and 25 tags. If you have more than 5,000 subscribers, ConvertKit offers three different levels of migration services for your other marketing assets based on your subscriber count.
AWeber Free is available for users who have less than 500 subscribers. Once you have over 500 subscribers, your subscription cost is based on the number of contacts in your account. Complete information is available on AWeber’s pricing page, including discounts for quarterly and annual subscriptions.
