They offer a forever free plan for up to 1,000 subscribers, which is a prettly good deal right? But there is one limit. 12,000 sent email per month. Which means 12 newsletters. And I’m pretty sure you won’t send so many email at the beginning.

But keep in mind that with free version you’ll need to pot Mailerlite logo at the bottom of each newsletter.

Some of you won’t mind it but if you will constantly use it and send out regular newsletters, I suggest you upgrade to pro version.

But pro plan doens’t just allow you to delete Mailerlite logo at the bottom, it also gives you multiple premium features.
