    Hi! I’m really enjoying the podcasts.

    I just wanted to provide some clarification for your community on email newsletter services.

    AWeber (not eweber) does not offer a free plan, but you can sign up and try them out for 30 days at only $1.

    MailChimp has an always free plan for lists that don’t go over a certain amount of subscribers, but if you want to use auto-responders, you must upgrade to a paid level. MailChimp also integrates nicely with Salesforce.

    **Nonprofits can apply through the Salesforce Foundation to use Salesforce for free.

      Thanks Naomi. I foresee a future podcast about the importance of maintaining a mailing list. I think it is a resource many overlook. Thanks for the info and correcting my spelling 🙂
