Email Marketing Services For Photographers

- - Marketing

Someone asked me what the best email marketing services are for photographers so I decided to make a quick list. I use Campaign Monitor because they have a sign up form I can put on my business site plus they have really nice templates to choose from. Incidentally WordPress has an amazing plugin that I use here where people can sign up to receive posts in email called Post Notification that some of you DIY’ers could easily turn into your own free email marketing machine.

Most email services like gmail have limits to the number of people you can email at once and the number of bcc’s you can have and sometimes they monitor the number of rejected emails to see if you’re spamming people. So, even if you have a tidy list of 300 people you update on a regular basis it can be difficult to do it from regular email channels. Here’s a list I made from the emails I get from photographers and the pricing I found on the site. Leave any more that you like in the comments.
