    In this video, I am going to be discussing how long it takes to migrate from Bronto to Klaviyo. If you have been using a website for a long time, it can be hard to adjust to a new site. Also, it can be hard to make sure all settings stay the same when transferred across.

    At Flowium, we offer a service where we do all the migration for you, but we don’t do the integration service, it is possible to do this but the main focus must be on migration. I will be showing you the timeline it takes for moving everything across and breaking it down into categories.

    The important features will be moved across first, such as contact email addresses of clients and also website forms. This will make sure no one is lost and all clients can get the new emails and news. Klaviyo can be hard at the beginning but once you get used to it, you will be able to use it. At first any new layout seems confusing. Across our YouTube channel we have a lot of tutorials and advice on Klaviyo, make sure to check them out!


    – How long does it take to migrate from Bronto to Klaviyo? Hi, this is Andriy, the founder of Flowium, email marketing agency, as well as this YouTube channel. If you’re first time on this channel, I strongly recommend you to subscribe because we’re releasing videos every week, Tuesday and Thursday, about Klaviyo, email marketing, SMS marketing, and general marketing to help you grow your e-commerce brand. So let’s get back to the topic. So how long does it take to migrate from Klaviyo to Bronto? I will show you our scope. So what we do when we’re migrating from Bronto to Klaviyo. I’m not sure what I said before but from Bronto to Klaviyo. As you already know, Bronto is closing down in May 2022. They will sunset their Bronto platform. Before I started explaining you, how long does it take? Also, we have this step-by-step guide, how to migrate from Bronto to another email-marketing platform. And here are all the steps. So you can share it with your team or you can just follow it yourself. Or if you want our professionals to do it, you can hire us and we’ll do the migration. And by the way, we do migration for free. Like if you’re on Bronto and moving to Klaviyo, we’ll do it 100% free. And also we have explanation on our website why we do this for free and what is our benefit. Okay, let’s go back to the migration. So first step is we will migrate all active, onboarding, and unconfirmed subscriber from Bronto to Klaviyo. Typically, it takes one day or even faster. It takes us a matter of hours, but we just like to budget one day. Second or almost the same day, we’ll do the migration of all bounced, unsubscribed contacts. Why do we want to move them? First, for historical reason. And second, so you do not email them accidentally. So we want to move them to Klaviyo and suppress them, meaning manually unsubscribe them. So again, we budget two business days, but probably it can be done in one day. So form designs. So you have some kind of forms in your Bronto account and it takes us up to three business days to migrate then all those forms. It doesn’t matter how many you have, likely two from Bronto to Klaviyo, and our designers will rebuild them inside of Klaviyo and it will be mobile response. The second thing, we’re migrating up to three templates, but I don’t think you will have more than three templates. And again, it will take us three days. Our designers will rebuild it from scratch in Klaviyo and it will be mobile responsive and it will be a responsive template. It would not be as a one image. So it says Magento. E-commerce platform. So here’s probably the hardest part. So we do not do the integration. We work with your developers, unless you use something like Shopify or WooCommerce, we can do the integration, but we do not integrate with Magento. We do not integrate with custom platforms and we do not integrate with NetSuite or other. Cannot be integrated 100% and we did it before, meaning we worked with other companies and developers, and they did it. But we do not do that. We do not provide that kind of service. And that’s why it’s tricky because the rest we know how to do and how long does it take. But this is like our bottleneck. Until this is done, some of the other scope cannot be done. Okay. So Klaviyo’s set up. It takes us three business days to do the full technical Klaviyo setup. Then we migrate any and all automations that you might have. And now when you’re ready and set to activate Klaviyo, we will create 30, 60 days engaged email subscribers in Klaviyo from Bronto. The last thing, we again budgeted for one day, one day, one day, one day, but probably everything can be done in one day if we coordinate accordingly. I know, if you calculate all those days, it’s probably less than two weeks. However, I always strongly recommend to budget between one to two months. This process can be done in one month or less. However, you need to start warming up your IP. Do the other setup and it takes longer. In case you have any questions or you want us to do the migration for you, please visit flowium.com/contact and schedule a call with us, and we can discuss your project in greater details. Again, we do migration from Bronto to Klaviyo absolutely for free, for no cost to you. We have our benefits from Klaviyo’s side. That’s why we want to offer it for you for free. Let me know if you have any additional questions. Thank you.

    With Bronto closing down, it’s important to find the right new platform for your store and when you do, have an experienced partner guide you through that transition.

    That’s why we created a migration checklist that’ll help you transfer your data from Bronto to Klaviyo without anything falling through the cracks.
