FREE alternatives to aweber

by 87 replies
Please, I don't want to pay someone $20 a month for an email system.

Give me some free ideas here that I can check out for myself.

If you don't have a positive comments, be a loster, and get lost.

I'm busy implementing my plan and want to be rich soon.

Thanks!

    Listwire is a great free alternative that strives to have good deliver-ability.
    Hope this helps.

      Your quote made me laugh so thanks for that.

    Mailchimp has a free version until you reach a certain level, after which you pay, but the advantage is not having to move your leads from one service to another.

      I have used mailchimp free version but they are very very harsh for a hint of spam. We had a naturally acquired list of emails around 4500 emails. However it was 2 years old and when we started sending out in batches, it blocked us. Another aspect, it checks if you are using multiple free accounts to do your job.

    Sorry, but this is being penny wise and pound foolish as the old saying goes. These free alternatives will mark your e-mails as being amateur hour garbage and you'll find it harder to make conversions. Moreover, if and when you get to the point where you do have need for a real autoresponder, you'll find that it's that much harder to make the switch.

    If you really are hard up for cash, consider a cheaper alternative such as Imnica mail, but don't go for a freebie. That's a perfect way to end up in the "IM doesn't work and I quit" crowd.

      Do you really think EVERYONE knows what aweber is? Really? I think that is just in the IMers circle if you ask me. Could be wrong, willing to learn, but not spending $20 a month while my email list grows by 1 or 2 sign ups a day...

      Have to agree. Zig Ziegler said "Good things aren't cheap, and cheap things aren't good"

    Quality is not the problem with free solutions but the extra advertisements. Every free service will stick their advertisements either on your outgoing messages or your subscription thank you page. If you're busy trying to grab your customer's attention, you don't want somebody else's link diverting their eyes. If you don't want to pay monthly, consider a self hosted autoresponder.

    Maybe you can put both listwire and feedburner on your main page...

    I've gotta agree with most people on this thread. If you're taking your list building seriously then a free service probably isn't going to cut it.

    If money really is an issue could you not sign up for their $1 trial for the first month? If you get 1 or 2 subscribers as you say, you should be able to cover the $20 a month fee using your list after the first month is over.

    There are good reasons why a free autoresponder may be a false economy - see this thread

    Don't waste your time with MailChimp. Although free, you can't be involved in affiliate marketing or they'll terminate your account on the fly.

    There are alternative to aweber like

    mailchimp
    get response

    Free option is limited for them. But they are really good sites.

    The "amateur" issue doesn't have to do with the name as much as it has to do with deliverability and functionality. It also has to do with other ads being added to your message.

      Aweber has a deal for the first month - I think it's $1? If you can't make the $19 for the next charge during that first month, you may be in the wrong business.
  • Profile picture of the author CourageIncorporated
    I've been using Aweber for years now and love it. They really give you so many tools to segment and then view reports.

    If I were starting over and didn't want to pay the monthly fee, I'd go with Mailchimp. But yeah -- not sure how well they like Affiliate Marketing.

    the problem with free autoresponders is that they will always advertise their link in your emails

    Listwire is a good service and so is Mailchimp.
  • Profile picture of the author tritolito
    I have personally used Listwire and it is a good free service should get the job done but i think if you invest and get a good autoresponder since i switched to GVO which offers other services included like hosting and blogbuilder i have seen my list grow faster and bigger.

    seriously, if you cannot afford like $30 bucks a month it is time to move on.

    Email marketing if done correctly can not only change your financial situation, it can change your ENTIRE LIFE and LIKELIHOOD.

    Just sayin'
  • Profile picture of the author powerstrike
    These free alternatives are never FREE in the truest sense because they all cost you something it may not be money but it will cost you time which of course is money. it will cost you more if you use a free auto responder, right now you can get a getaresponse account free for one month.

    During the money they will make you an offer to only pay $14 monthly for a list of up to 1000 subs
