ConvertKitĀ is a solid email marketing app designed to help you build and grow relationships with your potential and current customers.

With ConvertKit, you can create beautiful email newsletters, segment your subscribers based on their interests and behavior, and track engagement from each campaign.

By connecting the two platforms, you can take advantage of Kajabi’s features while using the more advanced tools of ConvertKit.
