flodesk review
 
There are sooo SO many email providers and it can be difficult to figure out which one to go with. It's even MORE difficult if you're just beginning to jump into email marketing. Because of that, I'm going to give you some touch points on why Flodesk is my favorite, by far.
 
I first want to mention that the larger your email list grows, the higher price you pay. I nearly broke the $200/month mark using ConvertKit before I made a switch.
 
For that reason, I’m super excited to dive into Flodesk with you guys. At the time that I’m writing this, the platform is still in beta so they have yet to roll out a lot of features that they’re working on but I’ll show you the goodness they have currently. What I will say right off the bat is that I have 20,000 email subscribers and pay $19/month. I’ll repeat that.
 

20,000 subscribers… $19 a month 

 
And no. It’s not a trial price. Lemme break down Flodesk’s pricing real quick. 
 
It’s $38/month unless you use an affiliate’s code, which then makes it $19/month. So if a handful of you use the link that I’m shamelessly sharing right now, I’ll receive $19 for each signup, BUT you get Flodesk for FREE for a month with no commitments and if you continue, it'll be $19/month FOREVER no matter how many subscribers you have.
 
HOW DO THEY DO THIS?! That’s not a question I can answer. What I know is this: omg take my money because you’re giving me so much money back. At my current subscriber rate, that’s saving me over 2 grand a year. Let’s jump into the overview so you can see what this looks like on the back end. I also talked about two other email marketing sites I've loved in the past on my video linked at the bottom.
 
 
 
 

1. Flodesk's Template Library 

 

 

The template library is AMAZING because they have so many options depending on what kind of email you're sending. Flodesk will ask what the goal of your email is and from there you can choose a template depending on the goal. This is one of the all-time best parts of Flodesk because not only are their templates gorgeous, but they are SO easy to use and customizable! 

You can also find these templates in the email editor as well under "layouts", so if you're like me and suck at making decisions, you don't have to decide on a template immediately!  Yas. 

 

2. Super Personalized Options in Flodesk

 

 

Flodesk does a great job of making sure you can personalize your emails to your brand! Personalization is one of the biggest reasons I shout Flodesk from the rooftops. From the buttons and the unsubscribe option, all the way to the spacer shape. Flodesk really gives you the basics of an email and lets you run WILD with personalization! As a creative, this is something I appreciate so hard because you want your emails to be a reflection of you. Could it get any better? The answer is yes, KEEP READING!

 

 

3. Flodesk Segments

 

 

I love the segment feature of Flodesk because it not only makes my life easier, but also my subscribers. For example, if an email I'm sending out isn't relevant to people who are only interested in one type of email for me, let's say Procreate, I have the option to exclude that "segment" of people. Win, win for everyone guys! Whether you have a huge email list or just an itty bitty one, this feature is going to let you personalize who gets what email! 

I use this feature A LOT so I know how much it's a lifesaver.

 

4. Flodesk Forms

 

 

On the top menu bar on Flodesk, there's an option for "forms", click it and get ready to make your life sooo much easier! You can have forms that are embedded into your personal sites OR you can have stand-alone pages. So not only can I use Flodesk to send out emails, but I can also use it for opt-in programs from a webpage! 

I also use forms for embedded codes, like banners for my emails or site. 

 

5. Flodesk Workflows

 

 

Workflows is where MONEY happens! I like to call these magnets because if you subscribe to one magnet, you receive a series of other emails. Don't worry. It's not as annoying as it sounds.

If you subscribe to the newsletter, you'll receive an email for access to my creative freebies. From there, you'll be subscribed to all of my segments! I always delay one day because I don't want to bombard people with emails on day 1.. how annoying.

After the one day delay, they will receive another email about what to expect from me titled "How can I help?". This is what I like to call my nurture sequence - adorable right? Every 5 daysI'll send them an email with some clickable links of free items, to get on their good side so we can be besties.  

I love Flodesk because it's super easy to use and can be personalized SO much. Personalization is so important because you want your emails to be a reflection of who YOU are. The value and eye candy that Flodesk offers really makes it truly unlike any other email marketing platform! I hope you develop an obsessional love for Flodesk as well so we can be flodesk friends, k?
