SharpSpring is an all-in-one marketing automation platform that helps businesses automate their marketing efforts. It provides email, social media and search marketing tools, as well as a CRM, lead capture and drip campaigns. SharpSpring provides a centralized, easy-to-use platform that all members of the marketing team can access. On the other hand, Mautic is an open source marketing automation platform that allows businesses to track customers and their behavior, create campaigns and automate emails. Mautic is best suited to those who have a greater understanding of technology and coding and who need more control and flexibility over design and features. While Mautic is free, SharpSpring comes with a cost but offers more user-friendly features and a better marketing automation experience for the average user.
