FluentCRM is the tool I used to manage my email newsletter. It is a WordPress plugin that runs right on this very site, handles marketing automation, drip campaigns, and newsletters…. and the site still loads pretty fast, right?
This is the first real viable competitor to a hosted email marketing platform that I have found easy to use and setup.
For Black Friday, you can grab FluentCRM for up to 50% off a single site license. Multi site licenses are also available.
