Don’t get me wrong, I think Aweber is a very versatile email marketing platform. It is loved and used by bloggers the world over. However, if you are just starting out, you might prefer to start with a cheaper option. So if you already have an account with Aweber but prefer to reduce your monthly spend then this post can guide you through the process of moving any subscribers you currently have to the free version of MailerLite.
We have all heard countless times that every successful blogger needs an email list. But there are email lists and email lists, some huge, some very small, some effective and others a waste of time.

Switching from one idea to another can be a real game stopper.
I highly recommend that you find one or two bloggers that are doing something similar to what you would like to do. Perhaps they blog in the niche that you are interested in.

So when I then tried MailerLite, the contrast, with respect to ease of use, was very definite.
