    I'm going to start building an email list and I find their plans expensive.
    What are you guys using?

    Mailchimp sucks at hitting the inbox these days so don't go near them with a 10 foot pole.

    I'm using sendgrid and am happy with the quality of inboxing and it is fairly inexpensive as well.

    Your stuff for SerpLogic hits my gmail inbox but in the promotions section as opposed to the main inbox. I periodically check the promotions in there but it is like every 3 or 4 days as opposed to it being in the main inbox which I see daily.

    To OP and to @t0mmy if you are thinking of trying sendgrid - I implemented this for a client some time back after a recommendation from Greg, and client reported back they got a much better response from their list once they moved from mailchimp to sendgrid.

    My thoughts exactly, they are the big boy in the email arena. If you're legit then I like them the best, just not good for shady stuff as they will take fast action against it.
