We need to find a simple and easy service that will let us click one button and be instantly able to save a new contact and let us categorize it there. Like old-school Hotmail did. We want to be able to send many emails at once without it going into the spam folder. Being able to set up scheduled e-mails & auto delivery is a must. We don't care if this is a paid service. We also want a way for people to sign up for the newsletter or what have you & we can send it out TO SUBSCRIBERS en masse. (Not spamming- only subscribers would get such mailings.) We need a very easy program as we are very non-techy.
ListServ, MailChimp, Constant Contact, CampaignMonitor have all been suggested. I've been messing around in the free MailChimp for a few days before I realized that does not include AutoResponding. What suggestions do you all have? Thanks for any help.
Our budget is $10/mo max. Though we were at first hoping to find something free. However, we realize that may not be possible.
