Many of friends saw my review on mailchimp.com and saw that I mentioned it is fairly expensive. I know they are looking for a platform which is just as effective but cheaper. Here it is. Mailerlite is just as good as Mailchimp. Yes yes there are more sophisticated features on Mailchimp, but a lot of people do not use those professional features. If you are like me and want to use a sophisticated marketing platform but are tight on budget, go for Mailerlite. Plus, if you go for their annual payment, no only will you get 30 percent discount, you can pay by PayPal as well. To me, that is a huge plus.
