3 of The Best Email Marketing Platforms For Early Stage Digital Entrepreneurs To Help Start & Grow An Online Business

Start and grow your online business with one of these three email marketing platforms:

#1 — ConvertKit

If you’re thinking of starting an online business, and want to build an email list to test an idea for a digital course, then Convert Kit is a great choice to get you started for free. You get a free landing page with an opt-in form built in, so your prospects can join your course waiting list and receive notifications from you when you have new updates. Convertkit.com

#2 — Mailchimp

I have to admit, I’m not Mailchimp’s biggest fan due to its confusing interface, however, it’s hard to deny its popularity as an effective email marketing platform for starting your online business. It’s affordable, with paid plans starting at £9/$11 for your first 500 contacts. It’s also packed with features I do love and it has an easy to use email builder. They also have some great free resources. Mailchimp.com

#3 — Active Campaign

Personally, this is my favourite email marketing platform. It has the right blend of beginner email marketing tools and features coupled with advanced automation you’ll love as your business grows. It’s also won numerous awards as the best small business email marketing platform. And when it comes to sending emails, it has a great builder tool you’ll master in no time. Prices again start around the $9 mark. Activecampaign.com
