I have used and recommended Aweber for many years for email! I use Aweber for my emails list and email management. It's not perfect, nothing is, but I've found it idea for small to medium businesses. If I ever scale to 7 and 8 figures I may use something else with more features although some of the more complex solutions seem to require a support team or consultants to set them up and I do not want or need that complexity. They do have a free trial version for up to 500 emails with no time restrictions - ideal to get started any maybe even your first year or longer, as well as free migration services. Why Aweber? Superb deliverability, pricing, and ease of getting started.
