Why I’m Loving Flodesk for Email Marketing

Photographers

Email marketing has been on my radar for longer than I’d like to admit. I know how important it is to have an email list. But you know what?

I’ve never used my email marketing platform consistently. I know, I know, cringe as a business owner! Even though I know how important it is to my business. Even though I know that it’s the best way to nurture my audience.

However, when I heard about Flodesk, I knew that I had to check it out for a number of reasons.

Flodesk Email Marketing for Creative Entrepreneurs

Beautiful Email Marketing

First, I saw that it was beautiful and sleek looking. You know that feeling when you try something new? Like when you take a brand new car for a test drive or try on a gorgeous pair of shoes? That’s what trying out Flodesk is like. You can tell that it’s been built for 2019 with creatives and entrepreneurs in mind.

User-Friendly Email Marketing

Second, when I tried it out, it was so user-friendly. In the past, I had tried a free email marketing platform (because it was free), but it often felt clunky and limited.

Within minutes of signing up with Flodesk, I had created my first opt-in form and customized an email (from the library of templates that Flodesk offers). You don’t have to know any code – if you can follow directions, you can launch your forms and emails flawlessly.

Email Marketing with Full Features

Next, with Flodesk, you get all the features – there is no tiered pricing. There is one set price which gives you access to all the features – segmentation, automation, opt-in forms, AND as your audience grows, you don’t get penalized for being awesome. In fact, this was probably the most intriguing thing about Flodesk – if I were to really work on building my list, I wouldn’t have to pay more for more subscribers (which, as a money-conscious entrepreneur, never made sense to me that you were “punished” for growing).

Flodesk Email Workflows for Automation

If you’re anything like me and have all the good intentions of using your email marketing list, but have yet to use it effectively and with purpose, I love that Flodesk is so user-friendly, as well as helpful. If you have no idea what to do with automation, they have common “workflows” set up to guide you through what you want to happen – from a welcome sequence or a lead magnet delivery. For someone who hasn’t automated email marketing sequences, this is such an added bonus.

Designed for Creative Entrepreneurs

Finally, it was started by two women who set out to build an email platform like nothing else out there. I’d say they are doing an amazing job! Also, as a Flodesk user, they have a Facebook group for community support. The two founders are actively helping users with questions and taking note of requests. It’s really great to know the people behind the software! Martha and Rebecca, I can’t wait to see where Flodesk takes you!
