I've been trying to figure out what app to get for email marketing. I have NO experience in this and really don't have the time to learn it. Is there a simple app that will work with the Turbo theme? What is the difference between Kit and Privy? Thanks, everyone.

This is an accepted solution.
Privy and Kit are not email marketing apps. Kit is for Facebook advertising and Privy is for popups.
If you have no experience with emails, I would recommend Mailchimp. It is also free for under 2,000 subscribers and it has tons of templates that will help you create nice-looking messages right away. You'll have to use a third party integration in order to sync Mailchimp with Shopify, but Mailchimp has plenty of resources on their website explaining how to do this.
I would recommend getting that integration setup, then going through Mailchimps automated emails. You should create a welcome email when people subscribe, an abandoned cart email, and any of the other eCommerce messages to get started.
None of the email service providers are going to be entirely housed in an app. Most of them do have app integrations for Shopify though. Other options include Klaviyo, Constant Contact, ActiveCampaign, MailerLite, and ConvertKit.
