“Email marketing for professional bloggers”. I can’t say enough good things about this tool and company. Whether you’re just starting out or want to take email to the next level, go with ConvertKit.


The website founded on the belief that everyone should have the tools to take their business from ideas to launch to growth. This is perfect for the individual that engages in hobbies that involve building things that they wish to share to the world.

This tool allows you to share your gifts with the least resistance possible. The best part? It's free to start and you make money before you even pay them.


Has some technical advantages over Mailchimp but starts out at $19/mo and takes some getting used to. GREAT for small business owners.

I'm a firm believer in, “You pay for what you get.” When you're ready to upgrade from Mailchimp—check AWeber out!
