Priced Out Your team needs to have marketing funds to use Drip, it can get relatively expensive. Younger and cash-strapped teams can find cheaper options with a bit less functionality.
Campaign Complications Automated campaigns have been proven to have some bugs, especially when setting up new workflow with new settings. Prepare for trial and error, and maybe a help desk visit.
Learning Curve Not a huge negative, but you’ll need to work through several guides to get Drip up and running to send an email.
