MailUp offers you a two weeks’ free trial of its Email Marketing platform. In this short guide, we’ll take a look at how the test is activated and what it includes.
With 4 billion users using email every day and an 8.7% increase in mailings since 2020, Email Marketing has become the marketing channel par excellence. It’s essential for communicating with an increasingly digitalized public, increasingly willing to receive news and offers via email: more than 60% of customers now conclude a purchase thanks to an email.
Whatever your business, sending emails to your customers and prospects must be part of your marketing plan. Relinquishing this chance keeps you from taking advantage of the huge potential of emails and staying behind your competitors.
There are many Email Marketing platforms you can rely on to send emails professionally and without a large investment of money or time.
Often these tools have Automation features, ready-made email templates and tools to schedule mailings that can make Email Marketing a fast, low cost business but with the highest return on investment compared to other channels (about 42 dollars earned for every dollar spent).
Before choosing the solution that best suits your needs, our advice is to test the platform you would like to choose. That way you can really understand if it suits you, is intuitive to use and can give you a valuable hand in turning your marketing strategy around.
MailUp also offers a free trial version that can be easily activated in a few steps.
Let’s see together what they are and find out what the test includes in this mini guide to activating with a MailUp free trial version.

The MailUp Plus version includes all the basic features included in the Starter version plus more advanced features:
- the possibility of adding more than one administrator
- up to 10 sending environments (or 10 different sending lists)
What are different sending environments for? They manage different types of sending, such as informative newsletters, promotional email campaigns, notification and transactional emails and so forth. Obviously a contact can be present in all your lists, or in only one.
- 100 ready-to-use email templates
- the support of MailUp’s phone and email team, in Italian

All this, and much more, for two weeks at no cost.
As with all MailUp editions, the database, submissions and data space are unlimited, so you can send as many emails as you like to all the contacts you want.
With MailUp, you pay only according to sending speed, which in the free trial version is a standard of 2000 emails per hour.
In paid versions of the platform, speed can be extended according to your needs and goals.
Versatile and varied to meet the needs and preferences of any company: these are the different MailUp paid plans
Setting up the platform for first use is very easy.
Just follow these simple steps:
Create your recipient database by importing into the platform a list of recipients including name, email address, phone number and other personal data. Follow the instructions in our user manual to find out all the ways to import contacts, from manual methods to the fastest ones by simply uploading excel or CSV files.
Create unique and eye-catching emails with the BEE drag & drop editor. Take a cue from the ready-made templates available on the platform or design the layout from scratch with simple selection and drag-and-drop operations.
Once your first email is ready, select the recipients you want to reach (you can include or exclude groups of recipients or set filters) and schedule the sending depending on the time slots and the most responsive days (data that you can then observe in the Statistics Area of the platform).
If there are errors or risks of sending, the MailUp platform will notify you even before programming, to go to correct errors and ensure a safe and effective.
If you have any questions or concerns, please consult the online manual. One of the advantages of MailUp is in fact its team of experts dedicated to you in this country, with which you interface in Italian for easy and hassle-free use of the platform.
When the trial is over, you will be notified by email that it is about to end. Trial expiration does not involve any automatic activation of a subscription, so you don’t have to worry.
There are two ways to activate a MailUp subscription plan:
- independently purchase a subscription directly on the platform. Ifyou already havein mind the edition that best suits your needs you can buy it directly on the platform.
- ask the MailUp team for any help you need. They will help you choose the edition that best suits your business needs. The team can also help you activate a contract with monthly rather than annual renewal.
Once your plan is activated, you will keep the platform you had during the free trial version, with all the data entered and the imported contacts saved, without losing anything. Even the login credentials remain the same, and you can change them if and when you want.
