ConvertKit is a marketing platform that can help to grow your audience and increase sales by running email marketing campaigns for your Kajabi website.
ConvertKit’s email marketing software can be integrated with Kajabi.
- Kajabi and ConvertKit can be seamlessly integrated for email marketing;
- Kajabi has in-built email marketing features similar to ConvertKit’s, so you might not even need to integrate.
Combining the two can be useful because whenever someone makes a purchase or submits a form on your Kajabi site, they will be automatically added to your list on ConvertKit.
With Kajabi, you can use ConvertKit to create opt-in forms, send follow-up emails, add tags, and set up automation.
