My experiece of Mailerlite
When I started out I know nothing about email marketing. I did not know how to write an email. first I started out with another email lprovider.
I joined Mailerlite just to check out as it was free, and I just love it. It is so easy to use with drag and drop. You can upload your own images and readymade templates make it easy to work with Mailerlite.
There are many templates, that can be used for pop ups, landing pages and so on. Actually every category has its own templates that can be edited. according to your style.
Support at Mailerlite is amazing, as I didn/t know any thing about how to create pop ups and how to add to my site, several time I contacted the support and everytime they had helped me immensely with patience.
The oneb more thing I noticed about Mailer lite, that they never bambared yperou with promotional emails. I have never received more than 1 or 2 emails per 6 months.
So hey if you are just starting out Mailer lite is the best option for your email campaigns. What is your experiece with email marketing? Will you share which free resources are you using for your email campaigns. Pl let me know in the comment section below.
