Email Octopus vs. Bento
Email Octopus is a fantastic piece of software that we're proud to call a competitor — but you're looking for options which is why you've landed here.
Bento is the definitive alternative to Email Octopus
Why? Well, for starters, Bento has been carefully designed for small, nimble marketing focused teams who work in online business like eCommerce and SaaS — those who need to move fast without their tooling getting in their way.
Email Octopus, on the otherhand, was originally designed for marketers who were looking to save money and cut costs. It was originally just an email broadcasting tool without anything else but grew into doing a little bit more.
EmailOctopus is a great tool for sending broadcast emails, but it lacks some of the most important features that you need when you're growing your online business — specifically features surrounding event driven automations, live chat, and tracking.
We find most brands switch from Email Octopus because they want more power, for around the same cost.
Below is a short breakdown of the features in both products. We ask you to compare yourself.
