Re: Mailer Lite - anyone used them and can provide me info?

There are better options, although their pricing is attractive. See if you can do a free trial to test it out for yourself. Every list/content delivers differently, no matter what ESP you choose.

Re: Whats the biggest tip you can give new entreprenuers.

Work hard, and rest your body and mind every so often Burning out is common, and you can't afford that. Really love what you're working on, it will be much easier on your stress.

Excellent, I'm willing to test that. Content will take me some time, but I think if we can get up to page 2 or 3 it's worth it. I'll check for the aggregators too. Thanks for the tips.

Re: Rotating "From Email" and "From Name" in ARs ?

Don't make a habit of changing these too often, or you will get blocked by Gmail if you're too aggressive with new froms. I think having a collection of froms you use consistently should be ok though.
