This is a test of switching from AWeber to Revue.
Revue does have a nice editor that I’m typing this in.
And it looks like the formatting will be nice.
And since this isn’t a paid newsletter, it should be free to send.
On Revue, it is free for anyone to publish a newsletter. The following features are all available on our free tier:
- A world-class, easy-to-use newsletter editor
- Unlimited subscribers
- Unlimited team members
- A custom profile domain, a custom from address
- Custom colors
- Unique engagement insights

So if this newsletter works, then it’s a good option for other indie gamedevs.
Because free is a difficult price to beat.
HOW TO RUN A MAILING LIST WITHOUT MAILCHIMP’S HIGH FEES.
and as I recently Tweeted:
When I had a magazine about pet ferrets
The email list could sell
back issues, books, t-shirts, mugs, food, toys, art, etc
so there were TONS of cross-sells, upsells
& ways to sell holiday product specials, and more
plus (potentially) have ads
one game for sale $15
maybe a DLC for $5
and no other products
How does that cover paying for mailing list hosting?
I believe in email lists - but if you only have a $15 product and nothing else to sell, it looks like the $ math gets difficult.
Until next time, catch me on Twitter
