Gist Cons

Gist is a newer platform but the concept is not new. While not as polished as Intercom, Crisp, or Drift, ConvertFox is also not nearly as expensive as all those other platforms.

When using Gist , there are many services that you no longer need to pay for, which easily justifies the cost. You no longer need an email marketing service, a live chat service, a scheduling service, and opt-in box service, facebook messenger bot service, or a helpdesk service. They are all consolidated into 1 affordable platform.

In my personal usage, I have has some reoccurring issues related to the live chat. When reporting the issue, each time it would take a week to be fixed which was tough to deal with.

PLEASE READ: While I do like Gist (formerly ConvertFox), the cost of a product is a factor in my liking and using tools. I purchased a lifetime Gist for $49 and at that price I like it.

At the normal cost, I most likely would use a different service. I made this video for all the subscribers on the channel that bought at the same price. To support and inform them.

Gist Coupon Discounts

There are currently no active Gist Coupons or Gist Discounts available.

Gist Review: Wrap Up

I have been using Gist since November 2017 and its been a mostly good experience. For me, it just makes sense to use this 1 platform and have everything in 1 place.

However when I have encountered a problem, waiting a week for it to be fixed is hard. So don’t expect the fastest support when there is a true problem with the system.

At the price I paid, $49 for a lifetime account, I will continue to use it. But I am not so sure the support is at the level that you would expect at the normal prices.

    Adam, thanks for the review, we bought the deal after seeing your review, created the account. when they did the migration to the new brand everything got lost, and they are refusing to redeem our codes again because it’s past a year. This absolutely ridiculous

    1. Adil, I’ve experienced the same exact thing. STAY AWAY from this company. Horrible customer service. I provided them everything needed to show them that I purchased their product; Activated it; and used it. They replied back with complete nonsense that I didn’t activate my codes even when showing them screenshots of 1) my gmail receipts 2) my gmail activation email 3) Screenshots of my activated and functional account.

      STAY AWAY… they are not to be trusted

    Do you have thoughts on the rebrand to gist? I notice your site does not use the chatbox feature. Can I assume you are no longer using the service?
    If you were looking to pay for mailchimp or use your appsumo paid version of gist (convertfox) to create an email string of autoresponders – which would you choose? Thx . Gardner

    Hello Adam.
    Thanks for the full review of this Marketing Tool.
    I was really looking for an alternative to Drip, ConvertKit and so on. This looks like a match with a better pricing.

    One question: Do you have some kind of deal, discount, coupon about this tool?
