My Rainmaker Platform Review

chrislema-face

I realized, when someone asked the other day, how I felt about Rainmaker and how it was going, that I’d written a lot about its features without telling you what I felt about it. So here are my feelings.

As you’ll see and hear above, there are several things I really like about Rainmaker—all of which you can check out on your own, if you start your own 14-day free trial.

Here are five things I love about Rainmaker

I love that the “all-in-one” solution allows me to focus on content.

I’m a writer, a blogger, a public speaker, and a coach. While I also happen to be a technologist, I don’t want to have to spend my days worrying about plugins, server uptime and more. I love that I can just focus on content and let the Rainmaker folks worry about the rest.

I love that I can still integrate other products using Javascript.

I know some people have worried that you can’t do anything with Rainmaker because they don’t let you upload all your own plugins. But some of the best solutions out there integrate with all sorts of sites using Javascript. I’m talking about solutions like OptinMonster, ConvertKit, Optimizely and more.

I love that Rainmaker sites look beautiful without hiring a designer.

Maybe it’s just me. No, wait. A lot of folks love the designs created by the Rainmaker folks. And the fact that they make them, and all their landing page designs, available for everyone to use is just awesome. Sure you could buy a $60 theme from somewhere else and spend hours making it look good—but it would perform poorly. Or you could spend tons of money on a custom design. But for most people, what they bring to the table is perfect!

I love that Rainmaker is getting into automated marketing.

I’ve been working with automated marketing platforms for more than five years. For the longest time it was only available to people who paid more than a few thousand dollars a month. The Rainmaker folks are making automated marketing available to everyone—for a much smaller price than anywhere else.

I love that Rainmaker makes sure all their solutions work well together.

I can’t tell you how many times people ask about the right membership plugin. Or they ask about the right eCommerce solution. But then they want those two “best of” solutions to work together. And then they want to add an LMS solution. Unfortunately, that kind of integration isn’t always easy. But the Rainmaker platform brings a lot of that together—in one integrated solution.

What exactly are you waiting for?

I don’t always recommend the Rainmaker platform. There are times where it’s not a perfect fit. But for half of the folks I talk to on Clarity, I recommend it. The links to the Rainmaker platform, on this page, are affiliate links. It means I get a small thank you when you order the product.

But here’s how you know I love it.

First, I’m using it. Second, as I said, I recommend it on the phone where there are no links to click on. I don’t care if I get that payment. What I care about is that it’s the right platform for the right set of problems you’re facing.

And the nice thing is that they’ve created a 14-day free trial that will let you decide on your own.
