How TinyLetter Is Making Us Fall In Love With Email Again | Communication & PR | Scoop.it

Thanks to TinyLetter and the demise of Google Reader we're all emailing like it's 1999...

 

...TinyLetter is to MailChimp what Tumblr is to WordPress: It's newsletters for dummies. "I think my mom could use TinyLetter," claims Kiefer Lee. Unlike MailChimp, which caters to businesses and offers all sorts of testing and analytics features, TinyLetter provides just the basics. Writing a message is just like writing an email in Gmail, meaning the process takes only as long as crafting the body text.

 

Getting people to subscribe to letters is just as easy. TinyLetter provides an embed code for those who want to put a box on their website. Or interested readers can head straight to a letter's TinyLetters landing page, which consists of a short description, a place to subscribe, and a link to previous messages, all against one big, bold, and beautiful image.

 

Oh, and unlike MailChimp, it's free. The service does have a limit on subscribers to a given newsletter, but the company works with very popular mailers on that....
