Conclusion

ActiveCampaign pricing model is rather complex as they combine a pay-per-subscriber and pay-per-feature model.
While its direct competitor: Drip only does the first model. So the Lite plan will only be interesting for small subscriber list up to 2,500 subscribers.

Beyond this, you should question or not if ActiveCampaign is the right tool for you. For that amount of subscribers you probably don't need too much from your newsletter tool and might want to consider a free option with Benchmark Email or MailChimp

If you have 10,000 subscribers, it's kind of the same story as you'll have to pay $249 per month versus $149 with Drip and the same features. Minor SMS Marketing which only few business really need.

One good thing about them is that they will help you migrate to their tool for free on any plan.
So ActiveCampaign is a pretty expensive tool but feel free to try it for 14 days, no credit card required.
