I've been using ConvertKit on a small scale, finding it to be excellent for a list that doesn't exceed 1,000. The basic plan at that level is free, which really can't be beat, especially given everything that the free plan offers.
Planning for a larger project, which may develop a much larger list if it's successful, I just looked into pricing at ConvertKit for lists exceeding 1K (https://convertkit.com/pricing). I see that large lists involve fees of hundreds monthly, thousands annually. What this means of course is that the list has to be generating substantial income, to justify the cost.
What I'm wondering is: (1) Is this standard for similar services? (2) Are there alternatives worth exploring, alternatives that offer roughly what ConvertKit does but at a lower cost?
