Top 5 Mailing List Providers for Authors

Most authors know that having a mailing list is a key part of marketing your book. But not all providers provide the same. Mailchimp is commonly known as one of the best for starters, as their drag and drop builder is easy to use. However, other packages work out cheaper once your list grows so it can be worth trying other services. Many have a free trial period so you can see what suits you best. Here we've listed the five best services and their costs. If you're looking to grow your list, we can increase it by up to 3k readers by running a targeted giveaway. Find out more here.
