beehiiv vs. Mailchimp

beehiiv is the dynamic and modern alternative to Mailchimp, focused on newsletter growth and monetization.

but don’t just take our word

Here's The Dink's story



On beehiiv we immediately upgraded the aesthetic of our newsletter, launched a referral program, and starting driving meaningful engagement via 1-click audience polls.

beehiiv is best for

  • Content-focused newsletters and publications
  • All-in-one solution for website, email, data analytics, and growth tools
  • Ownership of your audience and custom aesthetic
  • Affordable flat-rate pricing that favors growing creators and companies
  • Enterprise-level solutions made simple and accessible to everyone

Mailchimp is good for

  • One-off email blasts
  • Promotional or e-commerce emails
  • Small businesses offering online or in-person services



We launched The Dink on Mailchimp in 2020, and quickly realized it wasn't a long-term solution for us. It was overcomplicated and we ended up needing to use a ton of external tools to accomplish relatively simple things.

“We launched on beehiiv with nothing, scaled to over 250,000 subscribers, and got acquired all in under a year. beehiiv is that powerful.”

“We’ve been working with beehiiv for a year now and can’t recommend the product and their team more. It’s an intuitive, easy-to-use, and an all-inclusive product that’s only made better by the great team behind it.”
