If you want to start email marketing you should put a a plan to start with and of course the first step is to choose how do you want to run your campaigns So in this article I will show you all the methods you can use depending on the type of email marketer you are, so without wasting any time it start together

you have three options in this part which is:

1. subscribe to an email marketing company

2. build your own email marketing system

3. subscribe to an SMTP server and have your own

email marketing application

1- Go with email marketing company

there are a lot of email marketing companies like Mailchimp, constant contact and Getresponse . These companies will help you to manage everything about email marketing so you aren’t worried about anything like the SMTP or technical stuff because these companies have the full platform so they have the SMTP servers and the email marketing application

Also they will show you a simple interface to manage your email marketing setup. Everything you have to do is to subscribe to this companies and start collecting emails to build your email lists and the next steps for this option, which we will talk about in detail later

2- create your own email marketing system

in this option you build an SMTP server for yourself and set up an email marketing software and take care of everything by yourself this option need technical stuff and i won’t talk about it a lot because as you will see later i will go with the first option and will tell you how to start with company for free until you make the price of its planes

3-subsribe to an SMTP server and have your own email marketing application

In this option we will not have our SMTP server, instead we will buy it or we will subscribe to server and we have our email marketing application then we connect both together and we have our full email marketing system so we made a mix between the two option

what is the best option for you?

The best option for you is related to the types of email marketers we talked about earlier . If you are a cold email marketer, you have to go with the second or third option, that is, either build your email system from scratch or subscribe to an SMTP server and own your email marketing application

Why didn't we choose the first option?

Because most email marketing companies won't allow cold emails or bulk emails

If you are bulk email marketer you can go with your own email marketing system and take care of every thing because you won't find any SMTP server or any email marketing software that allow this kind of mailer because here emails contain affiliate link so they are spam other

If you are a legal email marketer you can go with any option you want

Now I will mention some email marketing companies to you with their features so you can choose what suits you
