Mailigen can be an asset to your email marketing campaigns, especially when sending newsletters, due to its abundance of design assistance, and it’s intuitive data collection and actioning. This allows you to perfect your newsletters through trial and error testing and can automate some of the more arduous tasks. However, the necessity to know how many subscribers you plan to have might not suit everyone's needs.
A similar service with a pricing structure based on content, rather than subscribers is SendX. And while this service also assists with newsletters, it has a greater focus on cross-platform broadcasting.
