Software like Hubspot, Mailchimp, Convertkit, Autopilot, Aweber, get response, and many others, but I personally recommend Getresponse because that is what I personally use myself for my email list building and marketing. And a lot of big brands, companies use GetReasponse as email marketing.

- Make your opt-in page simple: Make sure your opt-in page is simple so your visitors can easily subscribe to your list, not the one that will push then away from dropping their contact information
