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