How do I love thee? Let me count the ways...
For those that don't know, Flodesk is a new email marketing service! I should preface this by saying this post is 100% not sponsored. I just love it so much and wanted to share the goodness with all of you! I am constantly inside my business Facebook groups pretty much shouting about how great Flodesk is. It has changed my life in more ways than one.
First off: are you getting the exclusive party from me to you in your inbox every week? If you're not, you should definitely jump on it.
When I started my email list last year, I had no idea what I was doing. Z-e-r-o. The only people on my list were me, my mom, and my best friend. I was using Mailchimp and struggling to make my emails pretty like I had seen so many of my other entrepreneur friends do with their email updates. Picture it: me, glued to my laptop, frantically Google searching for everything I could get my hands on how to make my emails work for me and my brand instead of the other way around. I was a hot mess.
I took Jenna Kutcher's 0-250 LIST TO LAUNCH Challenge last August. Hearing Jenna talk about Flodesk inside her free course got the wheels spinning in my head. But I didn't think I had anything worth sharing with the handful of people that had already subscribed. I worked through Jenna's course and created a freebie inside Mailchimp (while simultaneously wanting to pull my hair out).
But while I was still struggling with Mailchimp and my aesthetics, I started paying attention to the emails that I was already getting in my personal inbox. More and more, I started to see the little "Made with love in Flodesk." tagline pop up in my inbox at the bottom of the emails I already love from some of my favorite people. (Rachel Allene, Elise Joy, Hannah Brencher... just to name a few!)
This January, I finally bit the bullet and made an account with a free 30-day trial.
Suddenly, I wasn't afraid to reach out to my email list anymore. At least not for fear that my emails weren't ~on brand~... Flodesk's templates are seriously pretty! All of a sudden, I could think of a million things to say and I decided to up my email game from sending out updates once a month to once a week. Say what? An 88% increase in me sending emails to the people that really want to hear from me simply from feeling like my emails were more aesthetically on brand for me. Yes, please!
They also have managed to make creating opt-in forms, website pop ups, and WORKFLOWS a breeze. (Did I mention all the hair pulling out I was previously doing in Mailchimp was mostly related to this?) Drag and drop blocks into their pretty templates, choose your font, write your text, pick your colors, and BOOM. DONE. Easy as that.
Flodesk, I love you. You're already a steal at $38/month, but I have a special deal to share with y'all: get 50% off Flodesk FOR LIFE. This makes it $19 every month no matter how many new features or fancy designs they add, or how many email subscribers you get! TALK ABOUT A GREAT DEAL. If you sign up here, I'll also get a free month of Flodesk.
Thanks, friend, and happy emailing!
