This is my current Email Marketing provider. I like many graduated from MailChimp to Convertkit. In addition to standard email services there is also Landing page templates included & it is user friendly.
This is the CRM (client relationship management) system that I settled on after spending way too much time flirting with a dozen of options. It is pretty user friendly & allows you to track leads, nurture them with templated responses, & keep a client database.

This is no longer a secret tool as it is gaining users very fast. But it is a great choice for virtual client sessions as well as for hosting virtual group sessions such as group coaching programs. It also has limited webinar functionality.
