SendPress vs Constant Contact: Pricing Showdown

This is part 1 in an ongoing series highlighting the benefits of SendPress compared with Constant Contact. Stay tuned for more great reasons to make SendPress your WordPress newsletter provider!

Today, in order to grow your following, or your business, you have to communicate in all the right ways and all the right places. And luckily, with SendPress for WordPress, sending your email newsletter won’t break the bank!

Let’s take a quick look at how SendPress, a newsletter plugin built just for WordPress, compares with a third party platform, Constant Contact, when it comes to pricing. We’ll take a look at 3 different scenarios that show just how you get the same, if not more, features for less (even FREE!) with SendPress.

Scenario 1: 500+ Subscribers

Taylor is a small business owner who is using her WordPress site to sell her custom made jewelry. She has 600 subscribers following her site, and she wants to send them newsletters whenever she puts out a new collection. With SendPress, she can take advantage of the free plan and utilize over 16 standard features, or she can take advantage of custom designed templates and more in-depth reporting with SendPress PRO for only $99/year. For the basic plan with Constant Contact, she’ll be spending $420 for the year. That a difference of up to $321! Even if you have less than 500 subscribers Constant Contact costs more than double a SendPress Pro license for the year.

Scenario 2: 3 Sites – Fewer than 500 subscribers

Drew is an entrepreneur, running 3 different small businesses, each with their own WordPress site, with between 100-300 subscribers each. With 3 different sites, Constant Contact would cost $720/year to have the basic plan on each site. With SendPress PRO, it would be $199/year to cover all 3 sites…or free, if he wants to check it out without the advanced features. That a difference of up to $521!

Scenario 3: 10,000 + Subscribers

Last we have Cate, an uber successful blogger with nearly 10,000 (and growing) loyal subscribers. She sends them newsletters monthly, likes to have all of the features at her fingertips, and is a little worried about what is going to happen to her newsletter pricing when she crosses the 10K mark. With SendPress, she is looking at $99 for the year, no matter how big her following gets. Constant Contact, on the other hand, is going to run her at least $1,020 for the year, and she still has to worry about her bill when she gets that 10,001st subscriber!

SendPress Pro (Yearly) Constant Contact (Yearly) Total Savings
Scenario 1 $ 99 $420 ($35 per month) $  321
Scenario 2 $199  $720 ($20 per month x 3 sites) $  521
Scenario 3 $ 99  $1,020 ($85 per month) $  921
