Normally you need a blog or any sort of publishing platform to get your newsletter rolling. Get a blog, get its RSS URL and give it to RRS-to-Email services to get your newsletter up and running for your followers/readers. What if you are not a blogger or do not want to use any blogging platform but you do want a newsletter system for email marketing. Start a free independent newsletter that people can subscribe to and receive emails from you.
RSS-to-Email services like MailChimp, FeedBurner, FeedBlitz, Aweber, Nourish are good. Few of these are free and others are paid services. Among these, Feedburner by Google is very popular free newsletter service. All of the above services require RSS URL of your website or blog. When RSS feeds of your blog or website gets update, these services send email to all your subscribers and followers.
