There’s an ocean full of email marketing services to choose from out there, so it’s OK to feel a little overwhelmed by the choices. Still, it’s an important -- and sometimes expensive -- decision, so finding the right one is an absolute must.
So, we’ve decided make some sense of it for you. Read our guide below to see which email marketing service is the best for your business.
VerticalResponse is salivatingly attractive for non-profit organizations because of a generous non-profit discount. If your non-profit sends fewer than 10,000 emails per month, VerticalResponse is completely free. For high-volume email senders, the company offers a 15 percent discount on monthly plans.
Best for: Non-profit organizations
One thing that really stands out about Constant Contact is their support. Customers have access to live chat, email, or phone support (during business hours) to solve issues they’re having. And it’s all included in the company’s base-level offering, which starts at $20/month.
Best for: Customer support
The consensus is that GetResponse is one of the best, if not the best, overall email marketing service on the market. One great feature of GetResponse is the ability to create autoresponder emails so that your customers receive pre-determined emails after signing up to the list. It also gives you the option to create stunning landing pages to help capture subscribers.

For the price sensitive email marketer, Mad Mimi is your best bet. They offer a robust free plan, and their pricing starts at just $10/month. Mad Mimi is really more about design simplicity than providing template options. And for the price you still get pretty great features, like social icons, automatic drip campaigns, and reporting.
Best for: Value seekers
Mailchimp is a great all around option for small companies with limited budgets. It’s basic, but completely free to use for up to 2,000 subscribers and 12,000 emails per month.
