This is a great article, explaining the difference between the two platforms. When I was looking to decide which one to choose from, I would have loved to have this at hand. I did indeed choose AC because several entrepreneurs who had tested both were saying that AC is more on your side when you start to grow. Burt I didn’t know the exact reasons.
However, I experience a major problem with AC: campaigns are sometimes delivered with a delay, sometimes of many hours (up to 5 or 6 hours!), Which can be a serious problem for time sensitive topics and offers. When you send an email with an offer valid until 14:00 and the email is delivered at 18:00… You see the issue…. I heard the same issue from other users. Since then, I’m intending to look if there are better alternatives that are more reliable, or if this is a general issue with email platforms.

Hi Angelique, I have certainly experienced slight delays from a couple of minutes to max half an hour. It would be interesting to see if there are any patterns, like the time of the day in the timezone you are in. I would love to look at your setup to see if I can find anything obvious. Please book a free call with mere here: or drop me an email. Looking forward talking to you. Regards, Martin
