There are many useful tools for email template creation. But how do you choose the right one? Let’s have a look at the three most favorite email template builders: Stripo, Bee, and TOPOL, and break down their subscription plans.
Before you start selecting the best email template builder for yourself, you should always know how to answer on following questions:
- how many users will cooperate on the process
- how frequently are you going to export a template
- is it okay if I have a lite (free) version, or do I need a full access
By answering these questions, you will overview how you should look at the email template builders offer. Every single tool chooses a different pricing strategy. But one approach is the same for most of them: they offer some lite (free) version to try out the tool and then offer a version with a minimum price.
So let’s compare three of them:
1) TOPOL.io – Free / PRO – from 10USD per month
Free – In the free version, you can try out most of the features without registration. You will get an idea about how it works and what you can achieve with this email template editor. After you finish your template, you can download it in a zip file. It is a good option, but you have to start from scratch every time.
PRO – Unlimited email template editor in all its beauty. You get access to all the features you need for email template design with the advantage of saving chosen parts of the email template layout for later use. In TOPOL Pro, you will have access to more than 150 premade templates and Pexels licensed photos. You can export an unlimited amount of email templates per month, and you can cooperate in a group of 3 people for the initial price.
If you are in doubt, you can sign up for a 14 days free trial; no credit card needed. In the trial version, you get 14 days of full access to the tool. You can edit, export to other ESPs, or download in JSON and HTML.
You can go for the monthly cost of $15 or choose the yearly subscription for $120. Considering all the features you get with the unlimited exports per month, it is a pretty good offer. For further details, check on a price list.
2) STRIPO – Free & Business – from 10.42 USD per month
Free: In the free version, you get a little bit more than in TOPOL Free, but you have to register: it is free forever, there is access to the AMP powered content, but there is a lot of limitations. You can create only two email templates, and you have only 4 exports per month.
Business: Full access to the tool for $125 per year or $12,50 if you pay month to month. Even though the price is similar to TOPOL Pro, there is still a limit of 1 user and only 15 templates that you can create; all other limits are sufficiently high for practical work. For further details, check on the STRIPO price list.
3) Beefree – Free / Pro team – from 25 USD per month
Free: In the free version of the email template builder, you get access to a lite editor with no registration required. There is only export in HTML. Overall this is very similar to TOPOL Free.
Pro team: We will look at the Team subscription to compare it with TOPOL and Stripo. Bee also has a Freelancer plan, but it’s missing many features that TOPOL and Stripo offer in their initial plan.
In the team version, you have full access for two users. They offer excellent features for collaboration like their competitors, but it is fair to admit that they seem to be a step ahead. You can create unlimited email templates and export them as many times as you want, like TOPOL Pro.
Bee Pro will cost you $300 per year or $30 for a monthly subscription. As you can see, their prices are significantly higher than Stripo and TOPOL making this tool more for advanced users looking for a solution that can manage teams, create roles, and define permissions. For further details, check on the BEEfree price list.
Now you have seen what email template builders TOPOL, Stripo, and Bee have to offer. You should be able to decide the right fit for you. TOPOL is the best option if you are looking for a professional email template editor for a fair price. You don’t have to worry about the limitations of how many templates you can create and how many times you want to export them, and you can collaborate with two more users. Stripo is a good fit if you are looking for an editor that can create AMP content. It is an innovative way to work with email content, but only Gmail and Yahoo support it.
Bee is a powerful tool for users looking for an advanced editor, but you have to keep in mind that you need to pay more than double comparing with TOPOL and Stripo.
I hope this article was helpful, and now you know which email template editor is the perfect fit for you!
