  2. Check - they do use Amazon infrastructure (SES) to send emails, hence they are way cheaper. If you prefer standard cloud solution, check

    Been using Sendgrid since a while and I have its API installed as well to deliver both transactional and marketing emails. As with everything else, it might take a while to get used to their interface and features but does everything. They have a good knowledge base with step-by-step resources. Segmentation, contact management and analytics are a part. They also have deliverability/reputation reporting and scoring.

    Email marketing for authors

    I've never used ConvertKit, but I've heard really great things about it from my blogger friends (and people who have their business built around that business model). The main reason I was looking at it was that you can set up different email forms with a different opt-in bonus for each one - so if you had a post about email marketing apps, the opt-in prompt would be a download about email marketing, with a different download/bonus for a post about PR outreach, etc. (I use MailMunch on my blog & they just added this feature for MailChimp opt-in forms, so I'll probably be sticking with MailChimp for now.)

    I used MailChimp for years, and was constantly annoyed. I come up with some non-conventional automation ideas, and MailChimp felt like trying to climb a ladder with handcuffs. I ended up switching to ActiveCampaign, and I've been extremely happy with them. They allow a ton of control in their automation builder. The downside is the email editing experience on AC is terrible. MailChimp on the other hand has a great email editing experience. If you just want to send a nice-looking email once in awhile, MailChimp is the clear choice. If you want sophisticated automations, I recommend ActiveCampaign. (Here's a long comparison I did between the two services: )

    HubSpot CRM

    MailChimp's main advantage is its transactional email service, Mandrill. But otherwise it often makes sense to use an email campaign product that is part of a larger marketing offering. That way email, blog hosting, social sharing and landing pages are all in one place and everything can be measured. That's why we use HubSpot.

      I've been using HubSpot CRM since it was in Beta and it's really matured into a powerful CRM. I do pay for the Sales Pro tools which unlock a lot of power. There are some limitations however that make it a bad fit, you can read more about those in this review -

      I applied for the program through Start-Up Chile accelerator for my startup.

      It is a bad product, it lacks of quality, features and it is expensive. That is ok, you have the choice to deliver bad quality as I have the choice to find other solution.

      But I can not cancel hubspot account, now we are attached to a 12month contract per agent without any advert. I'm watching how they take my money every month even when I am not using it, and i begging them to cancel my account, they refuse.

      Keep away from hubspot for startups, this is more a SCAM than a support program.

    I was hopeful for Pepo (also ses) but integration has been less of a slam dunk than I thought. Still worth checking out

    If you're going to do big campaigns, Emma is the right option, everything in the UI/UX is prettiest than mailchimp and it have more integrations but is more corporative
