Why choose Ontraport over AWeber?

Before we go any further, let’s talk about why you’re here

If you’re reading this Ontraport vs. AWeber review, you’re clearly on track to finding a marketing platform that can handle all your email and campaign building needs.

Still, with so many different features, packages and price points offered by both platforms, it can be overwhelming to figure out which one is right for you.

It’s a big decision and an important investment for your business.
We get it, and that’s why we’re here to help clear things up. We’ll give you the facts about both platforms and our honest assessment of how we stack up in this Ontraport and AWeber review.

But first, a note: We realize we may come off as biased (heck, we’re Ontraport, comparing ourselves to one of our competitors), but that’s not our intention! We want what’s best for you, whether it’s Ontraport or not. (It’s true — we often refer potential customers elsewhere if we know another tool would better suit their needs. We want you to be successful with our platform, not just pay our bill.)

So, let’s take a look ...

We’ll get into the feature comparisons below, but what it all comes down to is this:
At Ontraport, we see ourselves as a partner in your success, not just as another software tool on your belt. Our team cares about your business: We’ll start by working side-by-side with you to create a roadmap for your success, and from then on our over-the-top-helpful support team will be available anytime you need.

Outside of our team, you’ll find a strong community of entrepreneurs and marketers in our highly active Facebook group. While you’re there, you’ll get to know our founder and CEO: He pops up on the regular (really, we can’t keep him away!) to answer questions and share updates.

We built this platform because we wanted to remove the burden of technology so small businesses could bring their value to the world (ahem, that's our mission statement). That translates to a thoughtfully built toolset that empowers you to effectively market and sell your services, alongside a team that’s got your back — for the long haul.

Let's look at the top differences
Our sales reps have talked to thousands of people who are comparing Ontraport vs. AWeber, so they have a good idea of what separates the two. Here’s what they had to say.

Ontraport offers all the features you need now and as you grow

If all you need is a basic email automation builder, AWeber could work. But as your business grows, you’ll want to do more than just send out emails. If you’re looking for a platform that’s built to handle all your business needs — contact management, marketing automation, payments, landing pages, forms, membership sites, Facebook ad integrations, analytics and more — Ontraport has you covered. You won’t have to invest in or integrate additional software if your needs change. 

Ontraport makes it easy to send segmented and personalized emails

When it comes to segmenting your list so you can send targeted messages, the type of system you go with matters. With list-based systems like AWeber, you have to manually move contacts to different segments as they move through your sales cycle or show interest in different types of offerings. This often ends in messy situations such as duplicate contacts and people getting the wrong emails. With Ontraport’s database-based email system, contacts are automatically added and removed from the right segments based on criteria you set up. 

Ontraport offers unmatched customer support

Learning the ins and outs of new software can be challenging, and you’ll probably have some questions along the way. AWeber offers support via email and chat, as well as some setup services. But Ontraport takes it a step further, providing unlimited screen share support so you can get even your most challenging questions answered efficiently. Our reps work alongside you, going above and beyond to not only answer your questions but provide you with related tips along the way to help you reach your goals.
What about pricing?
Let's compare.
AWeber’s Pro plan starts at just $19/month for 500 contacts, which at first glance seems like a good deal — after all, it gets you features like unlimited email sends and basic landing pages.

But if you look closer, you’ll notice that AWeber is missing several features you need to run and market your business online. For example, if you want to store information and keep track of your leads and customers, you’ll need to buy a CRM system and integrate it with AWeber. The same goes if you want to take payments, launch a membership site, manage business workflows and choreograph complete customer journeys. It adds up fast!

Ontraport, on the other hand, gives you all the core functionality your business needs. You won’t have to buy additional software, string together a bunch of integrations or hire someone to help keep everything working.

Ontraport’s pricing tiers are designed to grow as your business grows so you’ll never end up with a price tag that’s disproportionate to your business size. All plans start with a 14-day free trial, and there’s no commitment. If you decide to purchase, you can create a pricing plan that fits your needs and upgrade or downgrade any time

“I moved a client from AWeber just before doing a launch. We have made just over six figures and without Ontraport in place, we wouldn't be able to have all our email sequences in place and I wouldn't have been able to do my job without it either.”

“I've used Drip, AWeber, MailChimp, Infusionsoft (now Keap) and by far, Ontraport is my favourite. Works as expected, easy to use and you even see the CEO interacting and answering questions in their group from time to time.”
