 Choosing the right e-newsletter tool

Jane vs. TierneyAre you a small nonprofit or charity trying to cut through the noise and find the best, most affordable tech tools? Welcome to Jane vs. Tierney!

Our first challenge was to send a newsletter, so we asked the experts, checked in with the community and tried out two of the front-runners ourselves.

Check out our quick summary and vote on your favourite, or get more details on our experiences with Vertical Response and MailChimp.

Help us out with our 2nd challenge! Let us know what event RSVP/event management tools you like & tips on using them. Share your thoughts on Twitter (#janevstierney), Facebook, post a comment on our blog or send us an email.
