7 Reasons Why MailerLite Is The Best Email Provider For New Bloggers

7 Reasons Why MailerLite Is The Best Email Provider For New Bloggers

‘Money is in the list’! I am sure you have heard of this if you have been blogging for a while. That is why I have been working on my Email marketing for the last few months. I have switched from MailChimp to MailPoet and finally to MailerLite in one month time. Every time I change the email provider, tons of work went into it. That also means every time I change email provider, I did tons of work for the previous email provider for nothing.

I want to share my Email Marketing journey with you to save you the pain I went through. After all the trials and errors, I think MailerLite is the best email marketing tool for new bloggers (not just new blogger, I know quite a few big bloggers switched to MailerLite recently because of their amazing price).

Let me start by pre-empting your question. What about Convertkit? It seems all bloggers are using that these days. I cannot review Convertkit because I have not used it. The main reason is that there is no free plan with Converkit. You need to pay $29/month for the lowest plan. With that being said, I would definitely love to give it a go in the future when I am making good money consistently through blogging. For now, I am more than happy with MailerLite and here is why

✅ Unbeatable Price

Here is a price breakdown for all the email providers I mentioned. I have tried all the free email services that are provided for people with less than 1000 subscribers. So far MailerLite is my favorite. Also, as you can see, once I grow my list in the future, MailerLite will still be the best email provider in terms of pricing. Therefore I do not need to worry to spend tons of time to switch to a different provider as my blog grows. They can handle bigger list and the service is super affordable.

✅ Super Easy To Use

Very clear instruction in MailerLite. I found it way better than MailChimp. I remember the day I started with MailChimp, I was so confused as in where can I found my subscribers, there are so many options under each tab and I cannot find what I was looking for. I spent hours looking for tutorials to learn how to use MailChimp.

With MailerLite, I figured it all out in less than half an hour without any tutorials. Figuring out MailerLite felt like figuring out a new smart phone, it takes time but it is super easy.

Above is what the home page bar look like, very clear what you can do with it, right? Plus if you do feel a bit stuck, they have many tutorials that can walk you through the whole tool step by step.

✅ Automation Function

Its automation function is like a dream. When I was using MailChimp, automation was only available for paid customers, they only made it free in the last few months. That was also one of the main reason I did my switch a few month back.

I did a screenshot below from the MailerLite automation workflow page. I want to show you how easy it is to do automation in MailerLite. With a few clicks, you can send, for example, a 7 days mini course on how to start a blog when someone opt-in through one of your forms. You can use ‘delay’ function to send the one part of the course every single day over the 7 days period.

Say someone opened all emails and but did not click on any links on the email, you can use the ‘condition’ function to automatically send a follow up email asking them if they are happy with the content of the email, if now, what do they want to learn from the mini course. If someone opened all emails and clicked on the links in the email, you can use a combination of ‘condition’ function and ‘action’ function to move them to a new list say ‘very active users’.

Very powerful automation right? It is included for the free plan! How awesome is that!

✅ A/B Split Testing

What should I use for my email title? ‘Best Email Marketing Strategy’ or ‘Email Marketing Strategy That Everyone Should Know’? Do you have that struggle like me? Do not worry, now with MailerLite, you can do A/B split testing.

You can test on title of your email to see which version gives you better email open rate. You can test on email content and see which version gives you better click rate. Make data driven decisions, as the marketing gurus say. This will help you to understand your readers’ preferences and help your to up your email marketing game!

✅ Customizable Integrated forms + Seamless Pop-ups + Beautiful Landing Pages

All the forms that you see in between my posts, the pop ups you see on my site are all from MailerLite. Give you an example, below form is designed using MailerLite. If you are a food blogger like me, need to keep track of all the holidays and all the trending topics in each month, you should get the editorial calendar. It helps me to plan my holidays content and I can advise companies on what kind sponsor posts we should collaborate on. Just pop in your name and email below to get your free editorial calendar.

Forms,pop ups and landing pages are highly customizable. Here is an example of my freebie ‘Air Fryer Cook Book’ Landing page. There are many pretty templates in MailLite for you to use.

✅ Easy Segmentation

Don’t want to send the email to all subscribers on your list? Only want to send certain promotions to the ones that interacted with your campaigns? No problem! You can do it very easily with ‘segments’ function. Few clicks and then every time a new subscriber from the list matches the criteria you set in the rules, they will automatically be put into the correct segments. Huge time saver!
