Until now Mailigen did not offer any type of free account, short of their free 30-day trial anyway. A few days ago however Mailigen announced the launch of the 5000 Free Epic Free Email Marketing Account – with which you are able to send and track email marketing campaigns to contact lists that are built using Mailigen sign-up forms. You can create a free sign up form and insert it in your webpage, blog or gather subscribers via social media. However take note that you cannot import previously collected databases. All the standard email marketing features will be available for your freshly created database of up to 5,000 contacts, for free, forever. To boot, Mailigen is the first of its kind to launch a free email marketing service with as high of a subscriber offering as 5000, while most services offer less then half of that number (such as the 2,000 offered by Mailchimp).
“Any small businesses just starting off with email marketing will find this attractive. Startups for sure could take advantage of this as could many smaller non-profits and charities. As well collecting double opt-in database from the very beginning can help by having a cleaner list, less bad email addresses, wrong addresses and less spam complaints early on.”
If you are new to email marketing, sign up for a Mailigen 30 day free trial account. When upgrading your account, choose Epic Free within the monthly plans selection. As a user of Epic Free plan, you cannot manually add any contacts. In order to build a contact list, you have to use the Mailigen web sign up forms. In order to do this go to Contacts and choose Web Signup Forms. Here you can create your own sign up form to start building a database and then perform your free email marketing!
