Email marketing setup for the non-technical can be intimidating and overwhelming. But here’s what I know:
Email Marketing is the #1 way people are going to find you and get to know you in the online world.
So you need to make this happen if you are using the internet for your business. Period.
Now you’re thinking “easy for you to say”. True. But I’ve tackled plenty of things I had no experience with. And that’s why I want to provide you with the quickest path to getting this necessary deed done.
Questions and Answers:
1. What’s the best email marketing software to use?
Personally, I recommend ConvertKit which will cost you $49/month. It’s powerful, visual and you won’t have to upgrade to anything more robust for many years.
2. Is there a FREE option?
Yes! If money is an issue, then I recommend Mailchimp. It can do most of the things that ConvertKit does, but the user experience is different and it is only free for your first 2000 subscribers and limited features. After that you would need to upgrade to a paid plan.
Another good option is MailerLite. You get your first 1000 subscribers on the free plan along with email workflows and customer support. After that you would need to upgrade to a paid plan.
3. Do I have to have a website to get started with email marketing?
YES! And here’s why. The rules of email marketing have changed over the years. You can’t be using your gmail or yahoo account with your email marketing software to send out emails. So my advice is, get that website done! Even if it’s a simple one-page design. I actually do website design in a Done for You program. If you want to consider it, here’s a link to my questionnaire:
