Keap is your ally in lead capture

Any business is only as successful as the number of quality leads they capture.

Keap combines strategy with technology, offering built-in lead capture tools that convert then nurture your new leads into clients and customers.

Everything you need to automate the lead-capture process is included: customizable landing pages, web forms, ecommerce tools, and more.

Mailchimp excels at email marketing and does enable users to create basic landing pages and webforms with limited functionality and customization.

While they do tout themselves to be an all-in-one marketing platform, functionality and power are lacking when compared to Keap.

Landing pages

Landing pages with Keap, the simple, more powerful alternative

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.

Landing pages with Mailchimp, very basic

The MailChimp landing page platform is rudimentary. Users are limited to fill-in-the-blank form set-up and basic image replacement.

The templates are also limited to specific business needs.

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. The platform's marketing automation capabilities make it easy to build personalized follow-up workflows that may include daily checklists, email marketing, and more—all from a simple drag-and-drop interface.

Mailchimp stores your customer data in their database where a user can, depending on their plan, store collected contacts and segment them into lists. Because Mailchimp's primary functions involve email marketing, the user is left with little to no database management and organizational functions.

Email Templates

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' inboxes, not junk and spam folders.

Mailchimp is known as the email marketing platform. That said, Keap offers the same capabilities and customizations as MailChimp. Email deliverability rates are identical.

Get organized

Keap is built for small businesses needing to get organized, save time, and increase revenue.

A robust CRM for contact management, pipeline management, task management and workflow automation offers the small business the proper balance of power with ease of use.

Mailchimp offers a database where a user can store collected contacts and segment them into lists. To do more, you'll need to integrate a third-party CRM to perform any lead follow-up or additional organizational tasks.

So, which platform do you choose?

Keap and MailChimp platforms are great platforms for users in need of launching email marketing campaigns at scale. Keap gives users far more followup, organization, sales and customization capabilities and gives small businesses more flexibility and insight into how their efforts are performing. MailChimp is solely a bulk email service.
