What are the great alternatives to MailChimp?

I am looking for an alternative to MailChimp that can work well for 14k email subscribers without breaking the bank. MailChimp's current pricing puts it at >$100 per month. Any suggestions?

    Yet Another Mail Merge (YAMM) is the simple email marketing tool using Gmail & Google Sheets. Premium license costs only $24 per year with upto 1500 emails/day (GMail's limit). Bonus is better "email deliverability" - your emails will reach the primary tab of your recipients!

      I've been using YAMM for over a year now. I've used it for investor / stakeholder updates, team updates, etc. In terms of efficiency, I save a boatload of time and can keep track of who is getting my messages.

      It's the best of it's class.

      I set it up within minutes. The google sheets integration is smooth. Sent out campaign to 300+ in one day with personalization and scheduling. The feature set is pretty expansive. Looking forward to use the Saleforce integration. If it works well, that would be epic! Very straightforward to use and measure success

      Meanwhile I think an onboarding guide will really help after setting up the account. Somehow I missed it and had to spend a bit of time to understand how to setup my first campaign.

      MailShake just works, and is a pleasure to use. The price is very reasonable and there are some really good guides on their site for how to do email outreach and more. If I had one feature request it would be to integrate with Google Sheets so I don't have to download a CSV and then upload it to MailShake, but that's a minor niggle.

      I used Mailshake for years before joining the team to help it grow. Coming from a sales background I used many tools to cold email. Mailshake is the most simple tool and extremely effective from a Gsuite email.

      In addition to closing dozens of eCommerce consulting deals, I was able to get free accommodation in Bali by emailing resorts and offering to exchange drone footage. Very versatile tool because you can simply add in more mail accounts.

    This could be one of them too. Alternatively, you could try Yesware, Drip or UserEngage

      After implementing it on the website, it worked well for a time, but unfortunately, with SendInBlue, you cannot be sure that it will work constantly as you tested it.

      SendInBlue, uses some kind Ajax, which sends a request with customer's email, and to check and show the message, it takes sometimes over a minute.

      Second thing, that it can work today, but tomorrow CDN is offline or the weather is bad, and it stops to work. Customer Service can say that it is working perfectly, however, with several tests, cache, and cookies cleaning, changing devices, the proves are there.

      Bad form designing tool. There is a possibility to change the code, however, if you change it, there are 0 chances that you will get the form you just paste to your code :) There is no "no styles" form as in MailChimp, so you have to change codes inside of <style> tag and the worst create your style="" into tags.

      And Yes SendInBlue, offers you better prices, good service, and quite good design features, however, the cons are telling me to run away from SendInBlue.

    Increase newsletter open rate with artificial intelligence.

    Great alternative to MailChimp which allows involving not only email, but free web pushes and SMS as well.
