What is ActiveCampaign?

ActiveCampaign is a leading Email Marketing Automation tool created by Jason VandeBoom in 2003. He started the company selling an on-premise software he had built from previous projects he had developed. The software would be the foundation of ActiveCampaign’s current cloud tool, one of the strongest in the market, with more than 150,000 active clients worldwide. The tool allows automating marketing workflows to send campaigns, manage your CRM, and follow up on deals.
