Reply To: Hi I run a service based company that carries out specific industry repairs and maintenance for customers getting plenty of referals from the manufacturer of the equipment.I have been meaning for years to load the customers into a data base system where i could send out automated email reminders for the annual service.Does anyone have any suggestions for this.

It sounds like you’re probably in need of something on the simpler end of the scale, so you might want to start with the free trial of MailChimp (or here are some alternatives to consider too: https://thedigitalmerchant.com/crm/email-marketing/top-12-best-mailchimp-alternatives/).
