Which email marketing software should I use to build an email list from scratch? It doesn't make good financial sense to pay over $200 per year in order to use an expensive email automation system if I am just starting out. I can use MailChimp which is free up to a list of 2000 subscribers but won't be able send follow up emails with their free plan.
Since I'm building an email list from scratch, should I be worried about follow up emails at all since I won't be making much money from a small list anyway?
Or should I go for the monthly paid autoresponder from start?
