Why choose Ontraport over Drip?

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

If you’re comparing Drip vs. Ontraport, you’re clearly on track to finding a platform that offers basic CRM and email marketing solutions.

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 Ontraport and our honest assessment of how Ontraport compares to Drip’s marketing platform.

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 Drip vs. Ontraport, 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 your business evolves

Drip is primarily a journey-building platform and, with all the tools you need to run a successful journey living in other platforms — like your CRM data, ecommerce system and landing pages — you’ll find yourself relying heavily on integrations to keep your marketing running smoothly.  Ontraport comes with everything you need to attract and engage your customers — including CRM, marketing automation, payments, landing pages, forms, email marketing, Facebook ad integrations and analytics.

Ontraport gives you a full ecommerce toolset

If selling online is an essential part of your business, Drip isn’t the platform for you. Ontraport gives you the tools you need to create order forms and process payments; offer order bumps, upsells and cross-sells to increase the total sale amount; and offer subscriptions, payment plans and unique payment structures to fit your business model.

Ontraport lets you run a membership site without integrations

Drip doesn’t come with any membership functionality. With Ontraport you can build, publish and host your entire site without pricey integrations. Whether you want to use our prebuilt system to get your site up and running in minutes, build your site from scratch or connect your existing WordPress site, you can do it all in Ontraport.

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. Drip offers support via email and chat, as well as limited setup services. But Ontraport takes it a step further, providing unlimited screen share support to solve your questions faster. 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.

Ontraport goes the extra mile to deliver your emails

With over 15 years of experience managing some of the biggest email programs in the industry, Ontraport’s team of experts knows what it takes to get your emails into your contacts’ inboxes. All plan levels get custom sending domains, an important foundation for strong email deliverability, and access to seed tests to further analyze and improve your deliverability. Our postmaster team is available to review your email program and coach you to success, and high-volume senders can get a dedicated IP for complete control.
What about pricing?
Let's compare.
Drip’s Email + SMS plan starts at just $22/month for 100 contacts, but remember that you’re getting what you pay for. With Drip you’re mainly getting an email automation platform, along with a few other features like SMS. To manage your complete marketing and sales cycle, you’ll need to purchase separate software to handle your CRM, sales pipeline, payments and other essentials. And that makes your monthly costs go way up.

With Ontraport you get everything you need all in one package, and you won’t have to upgrade to another system as you grow. Our 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, with no commitment required. If you decide to purchase, you can choose a pricing plan that fits your needs and upgrade or downgrade any time.

Here's what our customers are saying

“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.”

“I used Infusionsoft, Drip and ClickFunnels for years. Ontraport is so different — yet, when I ask how to do this or that, I get quick replies that show the simplicity of this platform. It’s going to be a great long-term cooperation! Well done!”

“The price of the product is obviously higher than an entry-level product, but the functionality more than makes up for it...When you get an automation tool like Ontraport and utilize all the features it offers, it can legitimately serve your company in the same way as multiple employees would. For a product of this caliber, it's worth its weight in gold!”
