Gist has some fairly attractive options for those looking to set up an email marketing campaign or two. There are some decent automation services that can really save you time, and the permanent live chat option is a plus. The ‘Free Forever’ service is a great money saver, but you’ll find that this really only offers the very bare-bones of a service, and to get what you need you’ll most likely have to take the ‘Premium’ service. Even the ‘Premium’ service doesn't have as many options for design and customization as other brands.
Why not instead try Get Response? Its tools are far more comprehensive for analysis and personalizing your campaign. Plus, its prices start from just $10.50 a month.
