Build Your Email List

We use ConvertKit to deliver our digital lead magnets and to build our email list. It is designed for anyone that offers digital or physical products, services, or uses affiliate links to earn money online. If you’d like to send emails to specific groups, you can tag subscriber profiles based on their interests, activities, or other details.

Many of our teacher clients that are looking for a service to manage email newsletters use MailChimp. The free plan allows up to 2,000 email subscribers and you can send 12,000 emails per month. The next plan level is only $10/month with unlimited subscribers and emails per month.
