I just signed up for GetResponse email marketing services like super recently (1 day ago on 14th June 2018 - today as I write this article is 15th June 2018), and this decision has been a long time coming.
I've "tried" email marketing here and there before...
...but maybe I wasn't psychologically prepared for it then.
I kept on thinking of the monthly costs, and because I wasn't making much/any money online then, and my heart wasn't in those topics, or a combination of the above, so I discontinued them all.
It seems easier to write more content, and I think it's mainly the
And it becomes easy for me to think about my readers and what I should write more of, do more of, share more of.
In fact, I've already

Frankly, earlier I was going through Reddit, I wanted to "try something that had a forever free if it's a low amount of subscribers" and a few of the reddits was recommending:
MailerLite Rejects NigelChua
So you know of the MailerLite rejecting NigelChua.com as a client cos apparently according to their algorithm, it's high risk cos I write about affiliate marketing apparently. BUT they allow people to put affiliate links in their emails.
Basically they can accept affiliate marketers who do not write/teach/share about making money online.
ReachMail Wasn't Accepting Anymore New Accounts
ReachMail was my 2nd option and back up to MailerLite, but funnily enough, when I tried to sign up, they indicated that they weren't accepting anymore new accounts LOL - must be my luck then haha
So How Did I End Up With GetResponse Email Marketing?
I went on to Google and search for the best/suited email marketing services for me, and I am price sensitive as I am just starting with my email marketing and community building.
The usual suspects such as Aweber, ConvertKit, ConstantContact, iContact and more, all either start at $29 per month for 0-500 subscribers, or their pricing was much higher with tiering.
I opened a couple of tabs to compare their pricing, and found that GetResponse had very good pricing (1st month free, $15/month for up to 1000 subscribers - that's half the price of most other service providers).
I went through their features, and since I'm just a beginner, GetResponse seemed more than suffice for me (I plan to use simple HTML emails rather than full blown newsletter with pictures etc).
And that's how GetResponse was chosen =D
