For years I’ve been using MailChimp to send out my newsletters – I like it because it’s free up to 1,000 subscribers. Unfortunately, it does have some drawbacks – if I want to create an autoresponder message, I would have to upgrade my account to a paid account. Earlier this year, I tried out Aweber – they are not free, their service costs $19 but I was able to create autoresponders in addition to sending out email newsletters. Recently I found out about a third option, MailerLite. Like MailChimp, MailerLite is free up to the first 1000 subscribers, but they cost much less than MailChimp, and they provide autoresponders to everyone, even those who have free accounts. In this post, I’ll take a closer look at each service.
I recently wrote an article for a freelance writing client comparing and contrasting Mailchimp and GetResponse. I’ve used Mailchimp for years to send out updates for my website, My Ebook Journey, and it’s worked well for me. However I learned a lot about GetResponse through the research I did for this article, so I decided to try it out for the 30 day trial. I’m only a few days into the trial, but I wanted to share my first impressions of GetResponse vs. Mailchimp. [Read more…] about MailChimp vs. GetResponse – My Experience, So Far
