Why is Bento better than MailerLite?

The main difference: MailerLite has come onto the scene as a lightweight newsletter provider. It does a great job at this, but due to it's low price point, it has welcomed a large influx of customers from all over the web. Because MailerLite doesn't provide visibility into your IP network and range you can never be sure if your emails are landing in the right place at the right time. If you are sending emails that are critical to get delivered (promotions, sales, transactional), then use a trusted, smaller provider like Bento.

Why people are choosing Bento over MailerLite:

  • You will be supported..
    Unlike other marketing and chat tooling companies we're run by a small group of passionate marketers who are still in the work each day. We join our customer Slacks, regularly call them up to chat, and hold training sessions with their teams as needed.
  • Your site will become faster..
    Bento removes the need to install another live chat, email marketing, or pop-up tool on your website — shaving hundreds of milliseconds off your loading times. Modules only load as needed and are customized to each individual visitor.
  • You will save money..
    Depending on what you replace with Bento you could possibly save hundreds or thousands off your monthly marketing stack bill. We know one customer saving $10, 000 per month off theirs.

Unlike MailerLite, Bento aspires to do more than just email marketing. Browse the list of features below and see what other apps, other than MailerLite, you could replace in your software — saving you time, money and speed. Questions? Talk to us on live chat.
