Let’s tackle this question first. Yes, there are a lot of freebies on the web. The trick is to separate the real from fakes.
Read the Fine Print
If the company plans to send their own ads in your emails – run for your life! You will only antagonize your list.
Is it Really Free?
Some email marketing software is free at the beginning. However, they will start charging a ridiculous rate after you reach so many contacts. Be sure you are comfortable with this rate before building a list. Some of the best premium companies offer free trials. So it’s up to you to make this determination.
