This chart is what I used to help me to choose an email provider. Honestly, I don’t think it matters too much who you start with as long as you start. A lot of the services are very similar. I like the option of starting free with MailerLite and that they really broke down all of their services so I could understand it.
If everything goes well and I successfully build my list, I may switch to Flodesk in the future.

|Reviews||I have heard great things about all of these which is why I am looking at these ones. I have heard mail chimp is challenging to use. But a lot of people use and love it.I’ve heard convert kit can collect the same email address multiple times and it only counts once. I’ve heard Flodesk is really user-friendly. I’ve heard MailerLite is easy to use.|
|Affiliate links||For most of these, I have found affiliate links available as I talk to people. It will get them something, but also make it cheaper for me if I don’t go with a free one.|
