ActiveCampaign is a marketing automation and CRM platform which is suitable for small to mid-sized businesses.
4BG is an excellent alternative to ActiveCampaign because it’s suitable for any business size and doesn’t require extensive training.
Here’s a comparison between ActiveCompaign and 4BG which shows the differences between both in terms of features and pricing.
4BG allows you to import and manage unlimited contacts into their platform. In contrast, ActiveCampaign charges you for a specific number of contacts in their database and pricing increases as you add more.

4BG’s automation builder has browser push notifications, which allow you to target your contacts as well as anonymous visitors with updates about your company. Meanwhile, with ActiveCampaign, you would have to use a third-party source to enable this feature.
