Today, we’re going to show you how to get free email marketing for your local business.
Ready to get started? Let’s go!
First, you’re going to want to head over to https://www.mailerlite.com, or search for “mailerlite” in your favorite search engine/web browser.
Now, you should see the screen below. To get started, click the Sign Up button in the upper right corner.
Fill out the registration with your information. It’s worth noting that MailerLite now requires a TLD (top-level domain) email address to register for their forever free plan. This means that you will have to have your own domain, like whatever.com, and an email address, like firstname.lastname@example.org, in order to get a free account. If you need help with this, feel free to reach out!
Once you’ve registered your account, you should be redirected to the screen below:
First, complete your profile with as much information as possible.
Note, our account was reviewed by a real person, so details can help make the process quicker and easier!
Next, verify your website domain. This is where you’ll need that TLD email, like email@example.com, to pass the quality check. This is a good thing, as it means that your emails will likely have a higher deliverability rate, as fewer spammers will be able to access the platform.
Okay, that’s it! Now you’ll just need to wait until you receive an email from the MailerLite team. If there are any issues, they will give you a chance to review and update them. For example, broken site links, or incomplete pages (i.e.; coming soon) may not pass the verification test for their free tier. Updating them quickly and responding to their request should help you get approved once you’ve made any needed updates.
Once you’re approved, you’re ready to start creating email marketing campaigns! Pretty easy right?
