    Hello All,

    I am currently looking into setting up a monthly newsletter for my design business but I am not sure how to do this/who the best company to go through, is? and how much it should cost me? There are lots on the internet but I am worried that as I don't know a great deal about it, I will choose the wrong company!

    Does anyone have any information on this please?

    Absolutely Mail Chimp all the way for me. We use it a lot for ourselves and clients.

    If you'd like an alternative option - we have used Simplycast for four years now - seem very good. No issues.

    They have purchased several other companies along the way and are now quite large (or at least seem to be).
  7. I agree, MailChimp is the way forward but another alternative is Campaign Monitor

    Get ready with your tables too since thats about the limits of what you can do with html emails :p
  10. Tables and inline CSS seems the best way to go with Newsletters. It's a complete pain but works for the most part across the different email clients.

    Aye, thats what I meant. To do anything else will just lead to your email not displaying properly for most people. I guess one day email will be a more dynamic experience - but for now its like the web 10+ years ago :p

    Some of the info on this website is now out of date, but I found this quite useful when learning more about the best coding practices for HTML email.
  12. Just to add to that, campaign monitor have a good cheatsheet of what works and what doesn't work in terms CSS coding for HTML emails. I will try and lay hands on the link and update this post tomorrow.
