Alternatives for less expensive email marketing?

almost 7 years ago from , Freelance Photographer

Not enough money to pay for Mailchimp (80$+month for my number of subscribers) so I use Sendy and Amazon SES but there's no built in WYSIWYG email editor no AB testing etc... lot of features lacking. Is there any other alternative that is cheaper than Mailchimp? I found Curated.co which seems cool but I'm not sure I can find enough brands to pay for the cost (through sponsorship).

Most of my subscribers are Photographers so it's very specific.

Any tips?
