What I love most about MailerLite is the completely and easily customizable templates, yet still having full accessibility from all email clients. The analytics features allow us to test different designs, content and subjects, to find out what inspires our readers the most. The icing on the cake is that all of this is available even for small startups using one of the cheaper paid plans.
