Email marketing mailchimp alternatives
16 June 2023
With the latest pricing structure change initiated by Mailchimp, more clubs are looking for alternative email marketing options. I did a dive into what was still available for free.
If money is no object, the leader in the email mailout space for a number of years now is Mailchimp. They are good and their system works and is generally very reliable. For free you can send up to 1000 emails total per month. So that would mean if you wanted to send one newsletter per week to less than 250 members, and don’t mind a little mailchimp branding then you could do it for free. Otherwise you would need to be on one of their paid plan options.
