What email provider do you recommend?

Hi, I have been having trouble deciding on my email provider and could use so imput!

 

It is for a new store, although I have an email list of customers from a previous store of 2000 that I want to send an initial invite to subscribe email so I hope at least a small percentage of them will sign up, I don't anticipate the list size growing too big to quick and will more than likely be at the most a few hundred subscribers for the first few months.

 

After hours of watching and reading reviews, I am more lost.

I am torn between AWEBER, MAILCHIMP, KLAVIYO, AND OMNISEND, 

 

Originally I installed Aweber, I never really used it but it looked complicated, after reading reviews OMNISEND appeals to me but I am not sure and was hoping for some input from people that have used these email providers!

 

Thanks, in advance

Hi @newbieguy,

 

Dani here from Shopify. Thanks for writing in!

 

My two favourites out of the list you've mentioned are Klayvio and Omnisend. But for two different reasons.

 

Omnisend is very similar to Mailchimp in that it's easy to drag and drop your newsletter layouts. It also offers a free plan up to 15,000 emails/month. This is a great option with tons of customizable options without needing to know how to code the templates.

 

Klayvio is like the "Cadillac" of email marketing. It's robust and you can customize it in a lot of different ways. However, if you're less familiar with coding this may not be the app for you.

 

I'd recommend taking a look at this forum post that compares all the email marketing options available with the Shopify platform. Also, if you're interested in taking your email marketing up a notch, take a look at our free Academy course on this here

 

I hope this helps! Let me know if you have any further questions.

 

All the best,

 

Dani

Thank's for that danni, yeah there are features i like in all of them, but i have heard those two are more geared towards Shopify e-commerce and easier to use. I think I will give omnisend a go!

That's awesome @newbieguy !

 

I personally used to use Mailchimp but switched to Omnisend and love it.

 

Let me know if you have any further questions.

Hello!

am relatively new to email marketing (since September/October 2020) but have found it to be critical, along with social media marketing. 

I started with Shopify Email but found it very basic and limited. So then I switched to Omnisend and have found it very “meh.” It has a very complicated interface and it forces you to segment all your audience into many different names groups as you add prospects to avoid sending a message to people you already sent that message to. 

I am thinking of trying Klaviyo or AC Email Marketing since Active Campaign has a good reputation. 

Since you posted your question earlier this year, what have you been using and how has it been going for you?

Thank you in advance for your reply,

Roland
