Main Points from Video

OK, so just to recap some of the points made in the video, I chose Convertkit over AWeber because I find it much easier to use and also more intuitive.

So if you’re a beginner or a first timer with e-mail marketing, Convertkit is definitely worth that extra bit of money because it’s so much easier and less frustrating than the other ones I’ve used. I’ve also used Mailchimp (don’t waste your time).
