Default Email Marketing Software

When it comes to email marketing software, you're in luck since there are a lot of applications to choose from. You might want to consider researching some of the following to find out which one suits you best. There is a software out there for every task and budget. http://www.constantcontact.com, http://www.mailchimp.com, http://www.aweber.com. Just to name a few...

Mail chimp is indeed a good option. You can also use apps to make your emails a bit more stylish.

One issue not talked about with Mailchimp from my experience is that it isn't so hot with delivery stats. I.E. some mails just go to spam.

Another issue is that if you are serious about business then you may want to eventually move your mail list to AWeber as it is basically the highest delivery rate I have seen and it's autoresponder tools are a lot better than Mailchimp in my opinion.

The issue of moving over means that you have to tell your list that you are migrating and this may cause a huge subscriber loss at the time although realise that a lot of those people were probably not that interested in being on your list in the first place.

I would suggest if you are serious and starting out.. AWeber is the best email marketing tool online there is and the cost is worth it.

If you are on a tight budget and running your own server you can get phplist running for free with a few mods and it works fairly well. Just realise that private email server delivery rates won't ever be as high as aweber as they work on making sure they aren't blacklisted continuously whilst ensuring that they are compliant with email requirements worldwide. No offline tool will ever do that for you.

Cheers
Chris

Mailchimp is great. We've been using it for over 3 years now and their support is great too.

Mailchimp is the best way to get started for free. I've been using it for a year now and I'm so happy with the service

Hi,

I encourage you to have a closer look at Mailchimp and ActiveCampaign, they both have good integration options to CRM.

Easy integration is important for saving time and money. No one has the time to re-type the same data in different places.

Cheers
