Drag and drop images, videos, lead forms, and other elements to the template to create stunning, on-brand designs. Keap's landing pages come preloaded with an image gallery featuring thousands of royalty-free photos and illustrations.

ActiveCampaign does not offer landing pages. Users are required to purchase a separate landing page solution as well as 3rd-party integration software.

These purchases can inflate your fees anywhere from $25 to as high as $325 per month.

Campaigns

Keap is the clear choice for businesses ready to step up to an all-in-one CRM, marketing & sales automation platform that offers power with ease of use.

Marketing automation capabilities make it easy to build personalized follow-up workflows that may include daily checklists, email marketing, and more—all in a fraction of the time it takes using ActiveCampaign.

Picture of Keap's campaign builder

ActiveCampaign's linear campaign builder restricts full viewing or your campaign, meaning campaign creation requires 30% more steps than Keap.

Additionally, users are required to work through a wizard and execute dozens of repetitive, time-consuming steps.

Users must build entire marketing automations from scratch in separate modules—an overly complicated process even for experienced marketers and technical systems professionals.

Easy-to-use email templates can be quickly customized, launched, and optimized on the fly. Built-in A/B testing (or split testing) functionality compares up to five email variations at once.

Keap has a 99.5% email deliverability rate and a 30-day average inbox rate of 83.25%. With best-in-class email deliverability, you can be assured that your marketing emails will get into your customers' inbox

While ActiveCampaign does offer email templates, their builder is slow to load and far less intuitive. A deep knowledge of design is required.

ActiveCampaign inbox deliverability is the lowest in the industry at 65% (3-month average).

Keap vs. ActiveCampaign:
Which is right for you?

In terms of features and functionality, Keap outranks in numerous categories.

  • Keap offers landing page builder and payment processing. ActiveCampaign does not.
  • Keap is an all-in-one CRM, sales and marketing platform. ActiveCampaign users will incur additional expenses purchasing third-party solutions and integration tools.
  • Due to the lack of inline editing with inlist view, businesses that work through large lists of prospects or customers will burn hours using ActiveCampaign's CRM interface.
  • Keap offers a best-in-class email deliverability rate of 99.5% and a 30-day average inbox rate of 83.25%, compared to ActiveCampaign's 65%, the lowest in the industry, means you can be assured that your marketing emails will get into your customers' inboxes, not junk and spam folders.
