I want to send out a twice a month email with trending topics, highlighted videos and posts, etc. to my members. I was looking at mailchimp and the discussions on the site about it, but then I saw the price.
I have a network with over 10,000 members, which comes out to $150 a month. That's a chunk of money, especially considering we have the broadcast message feature built in for free.
Anyone care to share pros and cons of these, why they chose what they did, and how to best customize either to get the best benefit out of it?
I am planning on using it to monetize my site, so I can justify funding it if I'm convinced it would be a good investment.
happy holidays and new year,
