Marketing Automation has been very very costly, and almost unaffordable for SMBs. Hubspot charges $2400 for 10K contacts, and $5000 onboarding fee. That’s too much.

With Mautic (open source and free Marketing Automation Platform), things have become cost effective.Mautic is more flexible automation tool than Hubspot, Marketo, Pardot, Act-On.

Mautic is free. If you deploy intelligently, even Mautic hosting and SMTP can be free.

So here is the trick.

Step 1: Download Mautic from mautic.org. It’s free

 

Step 2: Host Mautic on PlugTalent.com (it costs just $1/month, so it’s almost free).

 

 

Step 3: Signup for MailGun. You get 10,000 email credits for free. Integrate Mailgun with Mautic.

 

Conclusion:

Stop wasting money on Hubspot, Pardot, Marketo, Infusionsoft, and other costly MAPs. Start using Mautic. It’s open source, more flexible, and free.
