As a SMB marketer it can be a big benefit to use a variety of freemium services in your MarTech mix. Especially when it comes to things like your mailing lists or customer surveys. Or with your website analytics and dashboard reporting.
You may have noticed that I recently rolled back to the free version of Mailchimp. In truth, I wanted to roll forward to ActiveCampaign, but the timing isn’t quite right. So, it was a not now. And since I’ve used Mailchimp in the past, it was an easy decision to roll back for now.
