If there’s something you NEED to have when you run either a website or a blog is a mailing list.
Believe it or not, mailing lists are still a very popular medium of contacting your community. If you haven’t started a mailing or don’t know why you should start building one I will post on Friday a top 5 reasons why you should.
But for those who already know that you need a list and searching for the best Email Marketing Services here are the top 5 I would suggest.
Short answer; 5 best Email Marketing Services of 2019
MailChimp is probably the most popular one on this list. What I like about this service is the built-in templates they provide which makes it super easy to create your newsletter.
They can be a bit pricy when you get a subscription but for marketing beginners, this is the perfect solution.
They have a free plan that allows you to grow up to 2,000 subscribers. I don’t know that many people who even know 2,000 people… that’s a lot.
MailChimp can be integrated with WordPress which is a plus but they have hundreds of integrations with apps you probably already use.
I recently discovered AWebber and so far I am impressed. They have a killer dashboard which makes it super easy to locate what you’re looking for.
Not only do they have a very easy dashboard they also will teach you how to create your newsletter, create a list of subscribers, what the best time is to send your emails and how you can analyze the reports and grow even more.
The first 30 days are completely free to use and after that, you pay with a starting price of $19 dollars a month.
The downside of AWebber is that (and this is totally just my opinion) the newsletter designer isn’t as easy as I would like. If you know me you already know that I work in IT so for me that is not a huge issue but for beginners, it can be a little hard (that’s what she said).
3. Constant Contact
Constant Contact is also a very popular service for small businesses or beginners. It has tons of customizable email templates right there out of the box.
In contrast to AWebber which offers 30 days free trial, Constant Contact offers a total of 60 days. WOW.
When getting started, Constant Contact will help you with your email marketing by asking the type of business you have, the industry you’re in and if you have any previous experience with email marketing. From there they will help you to grow even more.
The downside of Constant Contact is that, even though they have a very low price starting from $20 per month it is for up to 500 subscribers.
SendinBlue is not only an email marketing service but they also have SMS marketing software which is designed to make it very easy for you to use. Let’s say that the service they have is “idiot proof”
The difference between the rest of the email marketing services I mentioned is that SendinBlue offers a deal based on the number of emails you send. You can have a free account with unlimited contacts and they will only charge you the number of emails you send. Which is pretty cool.
However, the more emails you send means the more you have to pay so when you have A LOT OF SUBSCRIBERS you are going to pay A LOT MORE. So SendinBlue is really for beginner marketers.
Drip is a good solution for you if you’re an eCommerce merchant who wants to convert visitors into subscribers.
The emails you sent can be customizable for users who abandoned their cart, first-time users or returning users and lots more.
Depending on your workflow you can send text messages, display Facebook ads and much more with their vast array of integrations.
You can have a free account up to 100 subscribers. After that, you’ll have to pay $49 per month for up to 2500 subscribers.
I think that the price is a little bit high if you compare it to the other services mentioned in this article but they have the best solutions for eCommerce websites.
These are the 5 best marketing services, especially for beginners. Keep an eye out on this blog because I will soon be releasing an article in which will tell you why you really should start creating a list.
I hope I have at least convinced you with this article and I really hope you’ll become successful with one of these services.
