If you’re considering running an email newsletter, or if you already run one and are considering a change of provider, I highly recommend @buttondownemail. Super-easy app, very fair pricing with a generous free tier, and exemplary support. 💯

imo @buttondown is easily one of the best-designed services i’ve used in recent years, if you have a substack you should really consider switching!
