Using a mailing list is an excellent way to engage and stay in touch with fans. With Bandzoogle you won’t have to spend more money on an external mailing list company. Our mailing list feature is available at no extra cost on all plans.

- Mailing list members

The numbers of mailing list members you can add and newsletters you can send from your account are determined by your plan type.
- Lite plan: 100 mailing list members (500 emails per day)
- Standard plan: 1000 mailing list members (1000 emails per day)
- Pro plan: Unlimited mailing list members (10,000 emails per day)
- Each email address counts toward your limit (Lite and Standard plans). When you’ve reached your limit you will not be able to add more members unless you upgrade to another plan.
- Pro plan members have a sending limit of 10,000 emails per day. Your newsletter will be sent all at once, but we limit the frequency of mailouts based on the sending limit. For instance, if you send a mailout to 22,000 contacts, you would not be able to send more mail for 2.2 days.
