    I have small classifieds website and want for people to be able to subscribe so they can receive new ads like once a day in mail. How does that go? Do I need to have some mail service like sendgrind?

    The difference is that AWeber is a marketing email solution provider while SendGrid is a transactional email solution provider.
    Go with Sendgrid or mailchimp for better and cheaper.

    Go for Mailchimp as they have better designs in terms of sending html campaigns. Though you can create your own and send using bulk mailers, but for beginner like you, I would go for Mailchimp.

    I would like to second Mailchimp, but also add the important info that it's free up to 2000 subscribers and 12k emails/mo. Quite a nice start, and it scales affordably too. I do not recommend aweber simply from ease of use, and lack of integrations.
