I made a big move in my email marketing when I switched to Flodesk. Here’s why you should ditch Convertkit (or any other email provider) and start using Flodesk like yesterday!

Now if you guys know anything about email marketing providers…

There are a lot of options out there.

I previously used ConvertKit up to 1000 subscribers for $30 a month. Convertkit emails are very plain, pretty much basic HTML format. If you don’t know what HTML is, that means there’s nothing but plain text.

And that’s the main reason I switched: I wanted pretty emails.

But once I moved over to Flodesk, there was so much more than what I originally expected to find with an email service. I’m actually really excited to share all of the awesome things you get with Flodesk with you guys.

Let’s get to it!

NUMBER ONE: Flodesk gives you a FREE 30-day trial. 

So I tried it out.

And I immediately paid for it after a week of playing around and figuring things out.

If you have a Squarespace website like me, everything is drag and drop. It’s super simple to add different elements and then just move them around to get them where you want them to be.

When you use Flodesk for your email marketing, your emails look like they were made in Photoshop, but they’re not!

The 30-day FREE trial (I mean, how awesome is that?!) is plenty of time to try all of the features and add your branding to the layouts and designs.

I love the fact that I don’t need to know any sort of code or waste time designing – it’s all laid out in black and white.

If you’re just getting started with an email service provider, Flodesk is going to save you a ton of time and give you a more beautiful email than any other provider.

When you use Flodesk for your email marketing, the email templates are laid out for you. It doesn’t require anything extra.

All you have to do is replace the templates with your wording and your photo or your font. That’s it. It’s drag and drop and done. Schedule that email and you’re good to go.

Try it free for 30 days and see for yourself!

NUMBER TWO: Let me tell you, Flodesk is beautiful.

In case you missed this before: Flodesk is so clean, cute, and pretty.

I know, I know… looks aren’t everything, and what’s on the inside matters buuuut…

These emails are just so gorgeous.

They’re aesthetically pleasing and you have the option to add your own branding colors. Now that’s a win-win.

If you want to check out how I have everything laid out, just look at the photos in this post.

Or if you’re subscribed to my emails, you already know they’re just gorgeous.

When it comes to branding your emails in Flodesk, you have the option to add 4-5 of your brand’s colors inside your account settings. You can also easily change the fonts and buttons!

I’m obsessed with the aesthetic of Flodesk emails.

NUMBER THREE: Flodesk has killer analytics. 

After you send your beautiful emails to your subscribers, Flodesk makes it super easy to see exactly what happened with that email.

Once it’s sent, simply click on the individual email to see a concise and simple analytics report. It’ll tell you how many subscribers it was delivered to, how many subscribers opened it, and how many subscribers clicked a link.

This makes figuring out your open rates and conversion rates a breeze, because Flodesk does the math for you!

They also give you helpful insights on things like: who marked your email as spam, who unsubscribed, and whether your audience prefers desktop or mobile for viewing your emails.

These analytics and insights help you figure out what you’re doing well and where you need to make improvements with your future emails!

NUMBER FOUR: Flodesk gives you UNLIMITED SUBSCRIBERS for $19 a month.

Okay, so this was the kicker for me, and just unheard of.

Flodesk is the only email service provider that I’ve ever seen to give you unlimited subscribers forever at a flat-rate. It’s an incredible value.

Everyone starts off with MailChimp. I did it, you did it, we all did it…

With MailChimp, you get your first 1,000 subscribers free, and then the cost goes up after that. You also only have a limited number of audience segments (groups you break your subscribers into) on a free account.

MailChimp was too complicated with too many systems and quirks to work for me. I actually lost subscribers when I was using MailChimp!

So I upgraded to Convertkit.

And I paid $30 a month for 1,000 subscribers. From there as your list grows, you get charged even more and the package prices go up significantly, just to keep your growing subscriber list.

You get as many subscribers as you want. Forever.

Yep, that’s right.

I’ve never heard of this before and I immediately had to get on it.

And even better news, they gave me this coupon code so you guys get 50% off FOREVER for unlimited subscribers and features.

I was paying more to get less with ConvertKit. 

But with Flodesk, I get beautiful, easy-to-create emails that I can send to unlimited subscribers for one flat rate. And I have an intuitive analytics report that helps me step up my email marketing game!

It was just a no brainer.

These prices are going to go up as Flodesk grows (it’s still fairly new), but you can get in now at this crazy good deal. They’re constantly adding new features and improving the performance even more.

If you can’t tell, I am fired up about what Flodesk is doing for my email marketing. If you’re still not sure it’s right for you, I’ll attach the link to a YouTube video below of my process. And feel free to sign up for my emails if you want to hear more from me.

NUMBER FIVE: Did I mention Flodesk’s customer service is amazing??

I sent an email and within a few hours, I received a response FROM THE CEO that completely fixed my problem.

Martha & Rebecca are amazing.

They’re incredible business boss women. Which is just one more thing to love about Flodesk! It was created by two girl bosses who put their heads together and created something that is just magical.

Flodesk has quite literally changed my life and I want you all to experience it.

And I just can’t wait to show you guys what I’ve been working on.

But in the meantime, check out Flodesk, let me know what you think. Do your research. It’s an incredible platform and why not support some girl bosses like yourself, as well as get an amazing service for only

$19 a month for unlimited  subscribers. FOREVER. 

Just a little gift that I wanted to throw your way! Send beautiful emails, my friend.
