  • Setting ConvertKit for Membership instead of Drip..?

    Posted by Seth Cauthorne on June 1, 2020 at 2:40 pm

    David (or anyone!), I was wondering, since I think your new setup is an amazing step forward in membership site construction, I do want to basically follow your model, but I feel that Drip might be too much of a learning curve with everything else. (I now have ThriveCart, Thrive Membership, ConvertBox, and SiteGround on your recommendation and through your links.). I already use ConvertKit for my email service provider, and even thought it really isn’t a CRM like Drip, I was wondering if I could use WPFusion to do a similar setup as you have with Drip, but instead use ConvertKit as a “lite” CRM? Would that be workable, even though I realise it wouldn’t be as flexible and powerful..? Thanks for any advice!

    Absolutely, WP Fusion works with ConvertKit just fine. 🙂

    I don’t recommend everybody head into Drip. In fact, ConvertKit is my “official” recommendation for CRM for my audience now.

    I have used Drip for over a year and I really like it. I tried ConvertKit and found it very limited and confusing. It is possible my opinion results from doing database design for many years. I find Drip to be very logical and easy to use.

    Drip is indeed more powerful, but ConvertKit definitely gets the job done.

    Thanks, both of you. Edwin, did you try ConvertKit after starting Drip, or before? I can see upgrading to Drip after CK, but not really the reverse…

    I think in one of David’s blog posts he mentions that he uses ConvertBox as an upgrade from ThriveLeads.

    In the video, I saw that ConvertBox can use your Drip tags for targeting, and in the post David says:

    Another thing I really like about Drip is how they have a differentiation between an unsubscribed user and an inactive one. In many systems, what would happen if a paid customer hit the unsubscribe button on your email list? It means you can’t even update them on important matters related to their account. With Drip, you can run automation if a person unsubscribes and act differently if they’re a customer or not.

    Disregard the first part of my last reply, I just wanted to point out what David said about Drip and unsubscribed contacts.
