The battle of #emailmarketing  tools. 

Here's my comparison and thoughts on the top email marketing platforms out there! 

GetResponse vs MailChimp vs SendinBlue vs Sendy vs MailPoet

Mentions: +GetResponse +MailChimp +SendinBlue +MailPoet 
If you've been following the site for a while, you know that I've been a MailChimp user since ... well, since the very beginning of my online adventure. Over time, though, things have started to get difficult. I mean, MailChimp is still cool and all, but sending my emails for free has become rather troublesome. Here's the entire story.

#growthhacking  was a big buzzword in 2015, but some of the principles can still be used in 2016 successfully. Here are 5 surprisingly simple ones.
If you have limited time, you're better off putting some growth hacks in place, than deceiving yourself that you're going to build a serious plan next week.

I know that this might sound like too simple piece of advice, but the key really is to just begin by writing on whatever topic and sharing your work as guest posts on other sites for free. This is what gets your foot in the door. This is how people learn your name. This is how clients find you, so you don't have to pitch them ... instead, they come to you.

Introduction
Hi there! Here’s the deal. If you don’t know me, I’m Karol. Over the last couple of years, I had the privilege to publish my articles on sites like: ProBlogger (15+ articles on ProBlogger alone), About.com, Hongkiat.com, Lifehack, Freelance Switch, Daily Blog Tips, Six Revisions, Quick Sprout, and others.

I was never good at promoting myself, so let’s get right down to business. I’m all about writing easy-to-grasp articles, using conversational tone that everybody can understand and enjoy.
