Love Flodesk!

5.0 2 years ago

Comments: Flodesk makes it easy for me to send personalized, attractive emails to my customers and consultants. My emails make it to the inbox instead of spam, which is very important!

Pros:

Flodesk is easy to setup and easy to use. I also love the modern look of the templates.

Cons:

Occasionally, I have trouble linking websites in my emails. I have no idea why that occurs. Otherwise, it's a great email program.

Beautiful designed for creative marketers!

4.0 10 months ago

Comments: Overall, I do love Flodesk. Beautiful designs. Easy to use. Super affordable. Great customer service. But eventually, I probably will need to use something a little more robust when it comes to reporting, sales pages, check out/payment pages etc. Right now it's great for a weekly email email, but I think they will need to add a few more advanced features for the advanced markerters.

Pros:

I love everything about Flodesk...The template designs are absolutely gorgeous and easy to edit to make the visual aesthetic on brand. It's really easy to use because of it's simplicity, but of course that means that there are a few things missing (in comparison to other email marketing services). But I definitely recommend Flodesk to a newbie when it comes to email marketing as it's very easy to set-up and get started.

Cons:

So Flodesk now offers sales pages and "payment/check-out" forms/pages but they don't give you the option to select what currency. What I liked least about this is that they made it default to your country and in my instance this does not work as I am based in Australia but I charge in USD. That is how my whole business is set up as I serve mostly USA/Canada-based clients and so I couldn't use this feature (after spending hours setting up a beautiful sales page and check out etc.)

I tried them all and Flodesk is my favorite

5.0 2 months ago New

Pros:

First of all, Flodesk emails are beautiful and super easy to edit. I love how you can add your brand fonts and colors so that your branding is consistent on every touch point. The analytics work for service based businesses allowing you to see how your audience is reacting to your emails.

Cons:

I wish there were more workflow options within the email itself like convertkit

Flodesk looks nice, lacks features competitors have

3.0 last month New

Comments: I wouldn't use it for a business. May be best for a hobby.

Pros:

Flodesk has some of the prettiest templates out there.

Cons:

Flodesk is missing some of the monetization avenues competitors have and other features.

Simple, elegant email marketing & lead magnet

5.0 3 months ago

Comments: I love the ease of user experience, the templates, options for lead magnets and overall customization, functionality and simplicity.

Pros:

They have a beautiful, simple and clean aesthetic for many of their templates. They are always adding new features. The price is great because I bought from an affiliate. I can use lead magnets easily and even set up event page automations to enroll people and process payments with a Zapier connection. My emails are displayed in an easy to read and access homepage. I know there is much more I could be utilizing with benefit!

Cons:

At this point, it’s mostly been great. Sometimes the lead magnet pages are not as optimized on mobile view.
