102 – My Favorite Email Marketing Platforms

August 28, 2023

Let’s talk shop about something that’s been a game-changer for me: email marketing. In a world where reaching your audience is everything, finding the right platform can be a real challenge. Join me as I spill the beans on my top three favorites: FloDesk, ConvertKit, and MailerLite.

1. FloDesk: Where Simplicity Meets Elegance

Alright, let’s kick things off with FloDesk. Why do I love it? Simple. They’ve got this fantastic plan that lets you have as many subscribers as you want without making your wallet weep. No more dancing around with tiered plans. But here’s the real kicker: their emails look like they’re straight out of a fancy design studio. Seriously, these templates are drool-worthy and they make my messages stand out like nobody’s business.

But wait, there’s more! The user interface is like a warm hug for beginners. Trust me, I’m not the most tech-savvy person out there, but FloDesk made it a breeze for me to craft emails that look like a million bucks. Drag-and-drop? Check. User-friendly? Double check.

2. ConvertKit: Analytics and Awesomeness Combined

Next up is ConvertKit. Picture this: a free plan for up to 1000 subscribers. Yeah, you heard that right. Starting out doesn’t mean draining your bank account. Plus, their obsession with analytics is my kind of thing. They give you all the juicy details about what your subscribers are up to, helping you fine-tune your game.

And hey, guess what? You can sell your digital goodies with their free plan. That’s like opening a pop-up shop in your emails! The only hiccup? No automations on the free plan, but honestly, I think they’re still pretty darn cool.

3. MailerLite: Where Easy Meets Automation

Now, let’s talk MailerLite. First off, they’re all about keeping it simple. The free plan, again up to 1000 subscribers, gets you in the door without shelling out a dime. And here’s the kicker: automations are included. Yeah, you heard right – you can set things on autopilot without even going premium.

Their user interface? A walk in the park. If you’re like me and prefer things to be straightforward, MailerLite’s got your back. Oh, and a heads up – they do charge if you want to sell digital stuff. Not a dealbreaker for me, but worth keeping in mind.

The Ultimate Favorite: FloDesk Wins My Heart

Drumroll, please! Out of the three, my all-time fave is FloDesk. Why, you ask? Unlimited subscribers. It’s like they’re saying, “Grow as big as you want, we’ve got you covered!” And those stunning emails? They make me feel like a design pro.

But what really seals the deal is the user-friendliness. I mean, I’m not exactly a tech guru, but FloDesk’s interface is like a friendly guide that makes everything a piece of cake. If you’re in it to win it, FloDesk is your wingman.
