Right now we use Mailchimp for sending Newsletters, but it may not be the best platform for several reasons.
- It stops being free after 2000 subscribers. We will hit this eventually.
- It was chosen before we’ve thought through the entire communications platforms. Now that we’re building out Slack, Hub, Google Groups — it’s getting to be a bit much
Some initial ideas to explore
Action Network: Has additional features like petitions, has a unlimited free version, is used by similar organizations that are very effective with communications like the Sunrise Movement.
Youth Power Hub: We use this Hub to communicate internally. Maybe it can be used as newsletter software as well even though there’s some real pushback from the Discourse team.
