    My friends usually use mailchimp because it's easy to learn and has lots of features. ;)

    I will add that I've worked in aweber, mailchimp and getresponse setting up a few mobile campaigns and getresponse was very easy to use.

    I know this threat is for BEST platform but just needed to say this. I just had an encounter with Campaign monitor for a client, wholly crap on a cracker, Ddo NOT go near it. Piece of crap system, confusing outlays, messes up your entire code and HTML tags, it is the worst thing ever.

    In my opinion, the best email marketing software for small business is Benchmark. If you want to find the best low-cost email marketing software then it is GerResponse. As for the best eamil marketing software for e-commerce business thenit is SendinBlue. Did you hear about them? What is your opinion?

    MailChimp is overpriced in my opinion. Aweber is the classic choice. I've heard great things about Convert Kit for smaller ventures.

    HTML and MailChimp are the best for email marketing! I will recommend you to find something more modern softwear for your business! Maybe it will be more better to ask help in some experts!

    I use AWeber and MailChimp. The latter is free and allows you to import your list from another service provider without forcing the list members to optin all over again.

    Most of the commentators in this thread would consider mailchimp. So, you can give mailchimp a try. [wink]

    I will personally recommend benchmark - at least its what i use and its giving amazing results. However, others like icontact, , getresponse and pinpointe are also good to go.
    Hope this helps.

    Bear in mind that when you pay for an email service like mailchimp you are paying for use of a software application and for a sending SMTP service. The application itself has no bearing on your inbox deliver-ability. The sending SMTP service does. For services like MailChimp you are getting both in one package though you do have some options to pay for a dedicated IP address. Other services like Interspire Email Marketer allow that you can use any SMTP service (like Sendgrid or Mailjet) along with the application. Regardless of what you do remember that if you used a shared IP you don't have full control over your inbox deliver-ability. If you use a dedicated IP proper setup is SUPER important and then your deliver-ability is all up to you and your practices.

    I wouldn't recommend using a free email marketing tool. That may seem like a good decision at the beginning but it takes a lot of effort and time to change it afterward.
    Instead, invest in a paid autoresponder like GetResponse or Aweber. See it more as an investment. Email addresses are the biggest asset for every online marketer so it makes sense to start professionally.

    well in my opinion.. i think MailChimp is good too but there are alternatives for it. If you are not satisfied with MailChimp. you can try
    1. (https://www.getresponse.com/)
    what makes it special? (get response really does have a ton of features, many of which other vendors don't even offer. The highlights:
    a. The ability to create up to five split tests (the most of any vendors i looked at).
    b. A landing page creator.
    c. A specialized tool to create marketing tracks for webinars.
    d. A drag-and-drop editor.

    i have had experience with getresponse for 1 year now, and i think this is a very good site and i am very satisfied with this site. i would definitely recommend for you to try this site. and yes this is cheaper too ($10 to be specific) than other sites.

    My friend is using GetResponse and he is very happy with them. Well at the end of the day, it all depends on what features you are looking for.

    There are actually now many more options like Amazon SES, Sengrid, Sendy.co and other tools that use Amazon SES as well. They're apparently much more cost-efficient to use. So, you may want to do some research into them to find the most suitable one for your requirements.
