I send-out a free monthly newsletter for people who just want to get my choices for the best posts of each month. , I thought I’d write a short “The Best…” list sharing some easy and free ways to create your own email newsletter.
Here are my choices for The Best Applications For Creating Free Email Newsletters:
I use Feedblitz for my own monthly newsletter.
Nourish is a ” free newsletter service that allows you to convert any RSS feed into an automated email newsletter your readers can subscribe to.”
FlashIssue is a new free tool that lets you easily create email newsletters. Here’s a video about it:
Wix, the popular website-creating tool, has announced a new feature they call Shout Out that lets you send out a newsletter. It appears that you have to first create a website on the site, and I’m not too sure how easy it is to import email addresses, but it’s still clearly something I should add here.
Revue is a new tool for creating email newsletters. It’s only free to use if you don’t have more than 200 subscribers, but it’s not very expensive if you have larger numbers. You can read more about it at TechCruch.
You can easily create simple email newsletters with elink.
Letterfuel is a new tool for creating email newsletters. It’s only free, however, up to the first 100 subscribers.
Sending Bee lets you create and send email newsletters.
Is Anyone Going To Get Rich Off of Email Newsletters is from The Atlantic.
MuxEmail looks like a good option for creating email newsletters.
Substack lets you create email newsletters. See “SUBSTACK” LOOKS LIKE AN EASY WAY TO CREATE EMAIL NEWSLETTERS.
Underline is a new tool for creating email newsletters.
You may have heard that Twitter bought Revue, where you can create email newsletters.
Google’s R&D division experiments with newsletters powered by Google Drive is from TechCrunch.

Newsletters in Class is a short post by EVA BUYUKSIMKESYAN about using email newsletters in education. I hadn’t realized Canva has that feature (what don’t they have?).

The RSS to email is GREAT!
FlashIssue is great, it’s like storify for email!
Yeah, tinyletter is good. I have used Blastermate.com as well and it seems pretty good, especially on mobile.
Do you know of any sites that can make a email version of the newsletter and also print a hard copy?
Sorry, don’t know off-hand.
Try out paper.li
Everyone here is working too hard. I want to tell your about a service called eSimply.com. Using eSimply.com, you can launch an entire email broadcast in under one minute. eSimply.com allows sending email broadcasts directly from a high resolution PDF file. If you cant output a PDF, eSimply also accepts Microsoft Word .DOC and .DOCX files. Your emails will display perfectly in your clients native email programs. You do not need to waste time messing with html, inline css, and all the problems with templates. eSimply.com also creates a text version and converts the annotation layers to hyperlinks. I highly recommend everyone check it out.
Another option would be online brochures. Check out Lucid Press. They have a great free brochure maker.
I am well acquainted with some of the sites. But I can’t seem to find the capability to not only do emails but also design a newsletter that is printable. I am working for a non profit that is just getting started on this digital newsletter so by examination and a little digging I realize the transitions wont be easy. If their is a service that is free and can print as well as email with the standard page 1, 2 format then that would be groovy.
i just tried wix as i have a web page with them… their design capabilities seem to be very limited….. you are restricted to their templates not allowing many modifcations….
