Ever felt lost with what email service providers to choose from in the beginning. I had this problem too…Analysis paralysis. So, I pick Mailchimp because they were a familiar brand. But, I switched and now I’m happy!
These are my top picks even if you are a beginner blogger or a pro. I hope I steer you in the direction and the final choice is entirely up to you.

5. Actionectics by Clickfunnels
Oddly enough, this is by far the most expensive option for most beginners. but hear me out for one second. It comes with clickfunnels, a landing sales page/funnel, that you’ll need for your business. The starter package cost you $97/month but it won’t come with Actionectics.
I did receive $116.40 from Clickfunnels that you can read here.
Go large with the Etison suite and you can get unlimited access to Clickfunnels, Backpack, and Actionectics. This will set you back a cool penny.
With unlimited access to Actionectics for $297/month, I know this sounds expensive but there are no sliding scale if your customer counts improve. Even if you have 1 or 100,000 customers, you still pay the same price. Making this the least expensive option over the course of time.
Maybe not in the beginning but this can be a best and cheaper option once your business improve.

This is a great start for most beginners on a budget but it wasn’t high on my list. Why I Switched Back to ConvertKit from MailerLite?

*Note: The chart below assumes we send unlimited emails per month.
Some user starts with Mailerlite until they hit more than 1,000 email subscribers. Go with their free version that offers 12,000 emails a month.
They then switch to the other email service. Go with this direction until it gets close to Actionetics pricing of $297/month. Finally switch again to Actionectics because this is the best cheaper option.
No more sliding scale!
