MailerLite is relatively new to the world of email marketing. For smaller lists, it is one of the more affordable email providers. MailerLite really shines in the areas of user experience and simplicity, and it has enough features for most small business needs.
New Account Sign-up
Affiliate Marketing (Prohibited) – is a type of business where you earn a commission by promoting other company’s products. We don’t allow this activity, because there’s no direct relationship between you and your subscribers. You are not allowed to send unrelated offers to your subscribers or pretend to be another brand.
This is what the dashboard looks like:
It tells you the number of subscribers (and emails if you are on the free plan) used from your plan.
You can also see the statistics of your last sent campaign.
You have the choice to authenticate your domains yourself with SPF, DKIM or have MailerLite authenticate your emails.
Setting Default Sender
This is where you can enter your From email address, company details and website URL.
You don’t need to mess with adding your utm codes – MailerLite does it for you automatically.
This is where you can edit your sign-up confirmation email…
…and your Thank You page.
Your subscribers get assigned to “Groups”, this is the term for your lists on this platform.
You can get email notifications when someone signs up/unsubscribes for your newsletter, or you can choose to receive a daily summary.
This is the name of your drip campaigns.
As you can see below, your statistics will be displayed for each subscriber group.
If you click on “Overview”, you will see the overall stats and the individual email stats.
If you clock on the gear icon, you will be able to edit the subject line or the email itself.
In addition to automations, you can also send campaigns:
Clicking on “View Report” will bring up more detailed stats.
MailerLite has tons of integrations. Here are the most important ones:
As an example, you can integrate it with WooCommerce through the WooCommerce integration plugin.
Add your customers to your email marketing lists directly via WooCommerce’s checkout process.
MailerLite WordPress Plugin
The Official MailerLite Sign Up Form plugin makes it easy to grow your newsletter subscriber list from your WordPress blog or website. The plugin automatically integrates your WordPress form with your MailerLite email marketing account.
Looking through my MailerLite review, you can see that MailerLite really does stand out in terms of simplicity – especially in user experience and user interface design. There are plenty of features for almost all of your needs.
