Anyone know of a good site to make enewsletters for clients. Something that I can email to the clients, or they can even open up at another site. I know there is Constant Contact, but I am looking at something that is FREE.

Normally in the past we do our newsletters, and then save them in a PDF format for clients, however we want something a little more fancy.

Could you use a blog and then have an rss feed that sends them the updates?

This may sound funny, but I don't like blog sites. I know, call me weird. We have everything else up for the business, whether it's LinkedIn, Twitter, Facebook, Google +, Merchant Circle, even working on a mobile site now...but we just don't do blogs. I would rather have it in a newsletter format that I can email to clients, but perhaps later have it available for download from our site too.

You could also check out what other lawn care businesses are doing with their newsletters and maybe use their designs to inspire your own.

Glad to help. Mailchimp does a lot of nice things like make sure their templates are as cross platform as possible. They do the testing so you don't have to. Good company.
