Mailerlite allows me to do split testing, send campaigns and my favorite, create workflows and automation. This means that once a user enters my email list they get send a series of emails automatically that provides value to them. All I need to do is create the workflow once and it’s automatically sent for each subscriber.

And the best part, all this can be done on their free plan. You can get your first 1000 subscribers for free by simply siging up here.
