SendX

With its simple interface and reasonable pricing, SendX is ideal for businesses with limited budgets and modest marketing needs. Yet brands with complex marketing funnels may not get enough value due to SendX’s limited automation options. And while it may be affordable, it doesn’t offer a free plan. Sendinblue’s free plan, for example, gives you unlimited subscribers.

Ascend by Wix

Ascend by Wix appears to give you everything you need to promote your Wix site, and for an affordable price. But when I upgraded to a paid plan, I found that it was lacking essentials like email testing tools and multi-step automations.

But when I signed up for a paid plan, I found that it lacked key features like subscriber segmentation, advanced automations, and useful analytics. While using a single service to manage your website and email marketing might be efficient, I’d recommend taking a closer look at...
