Why Use MailChimp?

 

There are several mailing list programs on the web, but DragonBlogger.com chose MailChimp as my email list provider for several reasons.

MailChimp Starts Free


Mailchimp recently upgraded and now offers 1,000 subscribers and up to 6,000 emails per month for free.  This is enough that you can start building your subscriber lists now and won’t even have to pay to maintain it until after your network is already large enough that you can effectively monetize it.

MailChimp Competitively Priced


You will find that if you compare MailChimp, iContact, Aweber that all programs are very comparatively priced.  You won’t find a price advantage over another mailing service over Mailchimp prices.

Custom HTML and Rich Text Email Templates


MailChimp has a bunch of HTML email templates or lets you create your own, brand with custom header, CSS, colors…etc.

Here is a sample template of my own HTML newsletters:

MailChimp Puts Faces to Emails

Integrating with SocialPro and Gravatar, MailChimp will put your subscriber list as people images so you can put a face to your subscribers.

    I have been needing an email list provider for quite some time, but as a relatively new blogger I keep putting it off, not wanting to spend the money.

    Now that I have 6 months, 10 blogs and a website behind me, I think its about time to make a choice. I was looking at Aweber, but this post and the fact that its free to start convined me to give MailChimp a shot.

    Thanks for the advice!

      I use MailChimp to send about 1-2 newsletters per month to over 350 email subscribers, growing by about 20 – 30 per month and so far haven’t had to pay anything. It is worth it because by the time your list is large enough to monetize, it might pay for itself.
