If you’re new to the world of online marketing and find some of the more major email marketing services a little daunting, Daily Story could be a decent option for you. It can guide you through every step of the creation and implementation of your campaign and requires no expertise or even prior knowledge. However, for how much more costly than regular services it is, it might be worth simply brushing up on your technical skills and paying for a cheaper service.
For example, Constant Contact offers all the same services, minus perhaps a bit of the hand holding that you can receive here. However, the starting monthly price is just $20.
