Why choose Ontraport over Maropost Marketing Cloud?

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

If you’re comparing Ontraport and Maropost Marketing Cloud, you’re clearly on track to finding an established platform you can trust with your email and marketing automation.

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 Maropost Marketing Cloud.

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 Maropost Marketing Cloud and Ontraport, so they have a good idea of what separates the two. Here’s what they had to say.

Ontraport has a full feature set, without enterprise pricing

If you’re looking at platforms like Ontraport and Maropost, you know the importance of running the full picture of your marketing and sales in one place. Both platforms offer all-in-one feature sets, but Maropost Marketing Cloud requires you to pay extra (in the range of hundreds of dollars) to unlock the core ecommerce functionality you need to sell online. Ontraport, on the other hand, includes ecommerce features in your account so you can process payments, offer subscription plans, create shipping and fulfillment lists and more.

Ontraport gives you award-winning support, without the wait

Navigating new software can be challenging, and you’ll probably have some questions along the way. To get answers from Maropost, you’ll first need to sign a one- or two-year contract and pay your entire contract balance. After that, Maropost does offer chat support — but it may take a while to get your issue resolved. With Ontraport, no matter which account plan you have, you’ll have a team of dedicated support reps available via chat, email and screen share seven days a week — and they not only respond fast, but they’re over-the-top helpful.

Ontraport is a more intuitive system to use

Like many platforms, Maropost offers basic email templates that you can download and edit — but Ontraport takes templates to a new level. Whether you want to launch an offer funnel, customer feedback survey or a whole membership site, with our done-for-you systems all you need to do is pick the system you want and fill in some blanks. Ontraport will generate completed emails and pages, set up with all the right automations. You’ll be up and running in minutes, without even having to learn the software.

Ontraport handles your online sales without other tools

Maropost Marketing Cloud comes with powerful email and marketing automation, but it’s missing the crucial features you need to actually sell your product. If you want to sell online, you’ll need to invest in Maropost Commerce Cloud. Likewise, if you want to streamline your sales pipeline and better manage your sales team, you’ll need to buy and integrate with Salesforce. It adds up fast. With Ontraport, all your essential ecommerce and sales automation features are included — no pricey add-ons or integrations needed.

Ontraport lets you run a membership site without integrations

Maropost Marketing Cloud 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.
What about pricing?
Let's compare.
While the exact cost of Maropost Marketing Cloud isn’t available on their pricing page, it’s well known that Maropost is an enterprise tool with enterprise pricing. With all three account levels requiring an annual contract and no free trial or refund period available, there’s no wiggle room to downgrade or cancel if you change your mind before your contract is up. Plus, it’s a big one-time investment: Your entire annual Maropost account balance is due upfront.

Ontraport, on the other hand, gives you the full feature set without the enterprise price tag. Our pricing is transparent and listed clearly on our site — and we won’t lock you into a long-term contract if you don’t want it.

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. All our plans are designed to grow with you, so you’ll never end up with a price tag that’s disproportionate to your business size.  

Here's what our customers are saying

“Ontraport is super easy to use. However, my favorite feature is their excellent support team. On a Saturday night at 10 P.M., I ran into an issue with my account. I reached out to chat support, and they helped me troubleshoot on the spot. The customer service and support is second to none!”

“What I really love about Ontraport is their fast, intelligent turnaround of any and all issues I’ve ever had. Not one question or problem I’ve had has ever gone unresolved. The software, the support, the knowledge base and the community of other users are extraordinary. I will never trade Ontraport for another platform — ever!”

“Of all the marketing automation systems I have tried over the years, Ontraport is by far the easiest one to implement and manage. The features you get rival the features that you would find in a system that is four or five times the price. And then there’s the customer support — their live chat is amazing and if you need some more in-depth support, they will schedule a live screen share with you. You can’t go wrong with Ontraport.”

“We needed a better solution that could handle our marketing campaigns, sales process, and 1:1 coaching programs — and Ontraport handles all three with ease. The automated task management allows us to streamline our sales process and cut out the redundant work, making us more efficient. Our marketing, sales and coaching all flow together now!”

“We used to use four different systems to run our online business and had to constantly fix things. Now we use Ontraport, and it all just works. Our customers can click, make a purchase, and get their product every time. Getting paid and serving our customers is critical, and we are happy to entrust it to Ontraport.”

“Using Ontraport, we were able to automate subscription enrollment, recurring payments, dunning, and failed payment notifications. I was blown away as we uncovered Ontraport’s power to automate everything we needed … with all Ontraport’s features in concert with each other, you can build a great, repeatable customer experience.”
