Hello hello hello. Email marketing is another aspect of marketing that Im trying to wrap my head around with a view to utilizing it to promote my business at some stage in the future.
Ive gotten my head around the basics of email marketing and what I can do with it to really help my business. Ive got a decent sized mailing list made up of pretty genuine leads and Ive got a good idea how to grow this going forward.
But before I take the plunge and invest in a top level email marketing service or program, Id like to maybe try it out first with some inexpensive or possibly free software. Just while Im getting the hang of creating and writing the campaigns, and while I grow my list of leads to a size that would justify such an expenditure on an email marketing programme.
So, can anyone recommend some decent, entry level email marketing programmes that could be used while still on my email marketing learning curve.

  • Hi There,

    If you're looking for a good email client to use, you want to go with MailChimp. Your account is free until your list gets over 2,000 subscribers. The system is easy to use and is almost as customizable as many top level email marketing subscription services.

    Once you reach over 2,000 subscribers the email client I'd recommend is Aweber. It's fantastic for really big lists, even lists into the hundreds of thousands.

    If you're looking for educational programs, I'd suggest spending your time on blogs and forums like this one instead. There's a huge wealth of information out there for free.

    Hey Colin...

    I have 2 recommendations:

    01. Lee Murray's "Breakfast Embed" - Seriously the easiest way to build/use email to make money. ALSO..

    02. 2 Books that show how to easily write emails that are fun and convert well. The first, surprise surprise, is Lee Murray (he's just that good) Email Slick. PLUS...Michael Cheney's "Commission Machine"

    Super easy! Super fun. Just try it, then let me know how it works for you
