Hi Rodney

While I have not personally used them I have heard good things...

http://www.mailchimp.com/

You can have up to 100 subscribers with send-outs up to 6 times per month for free. Additional subscribers are very low in price...

Additionally:

Track Opens, Clicks, and Way More

MailChimp tracks everything for you. See who opened, what they clicked, who bounced, how many times people forwarded your awesome campaign, who didn't open, and more.

Stats and Reports?

If accountability and ROI are important to you, MailChimp keeps you on top of your email marketing performance with awesome reports. Show your boss you deserve that promotion!

Automagic List Management

Easily import existing lists from Excel, Salesforce, Highrise and more. We'll automatically handle duplicates, bounces, opt-ins and unsubscribes. Your subscribers can even change their email and manage their own preferences.

Bullet-Proof HTML Emails

Built-in tools help you design and deliver great looking HTML email campaigns that actually work. No fugly templates here. We provide you with professional header graphics, fonts, and color palettes to customize the perfect email. If you're a professional designer, you can upload your own code.

Free Subscribe Forms

Design snazzy signup forms with your own colors and logos, then embed them into your website or blog. We'll provide all the code you need. After that, we'll manage all subscriptions automatically for you.

Happy site building
Ed

Hi there Rodney,

Ed's suggestion - Mailchimp is great! I would recommend it.

Alternatively you can use a paid service like: Aweber.com

You can embed Aweber forms into your site using a HTML widget.

You do this by dragging and dropping an HTML widget from the sidebar on the right onto your page (the icon for this is a blue sphere).

An HTML editor will open up that will allow you to write or paste in your code. When you are done, click "ok" and you will see the way your form displays on your page.

Hi Rodney

I recommend Constant Contact

They offer a complete solution for building your email list and sending out your emails. They are offering a 60 day free trial for Yola users, so I highly recommend signing up and seeing what they have to offer.
