Default FREE alternatives to aweber

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.

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.

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...

Yeah, i think mailchimp is one of the better free auto responders out there. However, i would really suggest that once you have some spare cash, subscibe to a paid service, it'll help you out in terms of time and better features.

Your problem will not be with Aweber then but clearly with your List Building method(s) if you are only getting 1 or 2 subscribers per day.

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.

Mailchimp has free and paid subscriptions.

Mailchimp is actually very nice to use, but it is a waste of time if you do affiliate marketing (which 99% people on the WF will be involved with) as it is against the MailChimp TOS.

Of course not. My point wasn't that people will tag someone as being in the amateur hour for not using Aweber. My point was they would consider someone as being an amateur hour person for using an autoresponder which auto appends an ad onto the end of their e-mails, regardless of whether it's Aweber, GetResponse, Imnica or a million others. The ad at the end screams I'm an amateur and too cheap to pay for a real autoresponder. But hey, to each their own.

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.

Yeah,

I was going to say depending on your goal here, will depend on the TOS with MailChimp. I currently use it for an e-commerce store, only because the template is very simple for what I need it for.

You can't be cheap the whole time, so give it a go then start paying for the service

Not anymore. They started to charge if you want to send autoresponders. Just verified today.

There is a wordpress plugin called GWautoresponder. The free version has no throttle control which can cause trouble with your ISP but the pro version might serve your current needs with a one time low fee.

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.

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.

Just be aware that Listwire has serious limitations.

First of all the advertisements .. that's not good for your business.

Also if you don't get new sign ups for a particular amount of time they close your account and you can't do a thing about it. (well there wasn't last time I checked).

After trying Listwire, MailChimp & Madmimi that's just what I did.

Right now I'm not getting sign ups either as I'm creating content, but I've got it all in place ready to go on my new site, but I recognise this as an investment because once I start getting sign ups I'll make the money back in spades.

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.

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.

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

Try Listwire, but be prepare because it has an ugly optin form with a link text "click here for your free autoresponder" (I don't mind with it myself since I use Listwire for one-shot non-IM niches and this service overdelivers big time, but many people won't be agree with me).

ImnicaMail has a free account for 1000 subscribers. Even if you go to paid version, it's just $3/1000 subs.

Quote:
want to be rich soon
Stop that annoying mentality to get rich asap - unless you want to join the crowd of "I have spent $ x,xxx for IM products that promised me to be rich but get scammed and fail. I quit!".

Start from scratch and scale up! That's how a real business grow!

is this some kind of a joke thread to see how many people respond or something?

im saying that by the way you have written your thread

just in case your are being serious, dont EVER EVER EVER EVER use a Free auto-responder

if you dont have $20 a month to invest in a professional service like aweber then keep working untill you can afford it

you are building a business online so you need to take it seriously and not take shortcuts just to save a few buck on something as cheap as an auto-responder

your auto-responder wil be your main work horse over the coming years so do yoursefl a favour and invest in a good one (not free) if you get a free one you will not have any rights to your leads and its a complete waste of time

Hogwash!

I will counter with this quote " The Best things in life are Free"

Any Business would want to decrease their overhead. I couldn't see a reason why I should pay a 3rd party to handle my data. After all, services such as Aweber, Getresponse, as well as MailChimp and others is nothing more than software. I found a nice little Free WordPress Plugin that handles all my needs. I have it installed on Link-Partners.com and it is it's own subscription bait. I have download instructions set in the auto responder.

Opt-in Form
  • HTML subscription (opt-in) forms for your websites
  • Shortcode for opt-in form
  • Opt-in form widget
  • Flexible redirection options in opt-in form
Email addresses
  • Unlimited email addresses
  • Option to search email addresses
  • Extract email addresses from any unformatted text
  • Import email addresses from CSV or other text based files
  • Backup email addresses by exporting as CSV file
Email Sending Configurations
  • Configure hourly limits
  • Auto responders for subscription and unsubscription
  • SMTP sending settings
Anti-spam compliance
  • Email confirmation option for subscribers
  • One click unsubscribe link for subscribers

Email Campaigns
  • Unlimited email campaigns
  • Create HTML or plain text messages
  • Create campaign messages using WYSIWYG editor
  • Create multipart messages
  • Personalize your message using name field
  • Upload unlimited attachments
  • Easy to add unsubscription link
  • Preview campaign by test mail
  • Pause/resume active campaigns
  • Selective execution of campaigns
  • Email firing batch size for each campaign
  • Automate email sending using cron job or scheduler
  • Efficient email sending engine which prevents duplicate emails
  • Detailed statistics of email campaigns

I'll mimic what others have said. Don't go free! You will regret it in the long run. Invest in your business and use one of the two top rated providers....aWeber and Getreponse.

They offer a free trial period as well, so if you work you butt off enough within that trial period, it shouldn't be a problem paying for the first month when it comes due.

You honestly have no idea what you're talking about...

It's not scam, and couldn't possibly even be one, we don't charge our clients a cent, and never have... how could we possibly be scamming you?

ListWire is now supporting several hundred thousand lists, and we're adding 100+ new clients per day... we're not going anywhere, and we're most certainly not a scam.

I'd suggest you to go with "Interspire Email Marketing" web based software. it is one time fee and unlimited usage.

The emailing software isn't the issue. It's actually having your emails delivered and not marked as spam. I would advise you to go with aweber or getresponse for the shear fact that your emails will get delivered. There is not point is using some free program that your emails will end in the spam folder. Your going to lose more sales and kick yourself in the ass for not spending $20 a month. I learned the hardway.

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.

I tried aweber for a while, and dealing with their staff, I found them to be completely unethical, and untrustworthy.
mailchimp is what i use now
