#2. MailChimp


MailChimp is a bulk e-mail sender that allows you to e-mail the contacts you collect. They let you send up to a certain amount for free, then you can pay for their bigger packages (which most independent artists won’t have to do). I again cannot stress enough about how important e-mail marketing is, and how it is the most powerful and effective method of reaching out to your fans. Sign up for MailChimp for free and give it a test try if you haven’t already.
