Hi everyone. What's the best way to get a database started to send out news, announcements, etc.? I'm thinking of emailing or messaging all of my contacts and asking if they would like to be added to my mailing list.

Thanks in advance for any feedback.

Hey Marianne,

You are right on track with that approach of emailing all the FFFs ( Friends, Family, and "Fools"). When you do that you will want to keep a spreadsheet or something simple for now of who replies, who doesn't, and who consents to being on your list. 

Once you get a list going, I would use something free and easy. I started with MailChimp and then I switched to Elastic Email (more of a programmers list program--better for me). Both are free when you start out. There are a bunch of tools out there you can use. Some other's I've looked at are: convertkit.com, quickmail.io, constantcontact.com. They are all a bit different with different features and usability.  Just keep it simple when you get started.

The important thing is that the best time to start an email list is last year, the second best is NOW. Take action and do something to grow your future.

Let me know how I can be of service.


Thanks Brian!

Hello, Marianne.

I use Mail Chimp as well.  It is user friendly and not have to use.  I highly recommend it!!
