Anyone Have A Good Free Mailing-List Opt-In Script?

by 3 comments
I've got my auto responder messages set up, but I need a mailing list opt-in script that does two things:

1) Automatically adds a persons email address to my mailing list

2) Allows me to make custom mailing lists for select customers

I want to be able to target my mailings to specific customers, hence the need for the customization.

Does anyone have a script like this?

    I would strongly suggest that you don't use a free script. I did. I was a cheapskate, and I wanted the list on my own server. NOT a good idea. I lost lots of subscribers every time there was a problem with the script.

    If you still have doubts, read my story here: (sorry, lost the wordpress theme a while ago, and haven't had the time to put it up again).

      Thanks guys.

      Britt, your blog posts were very informative. I didn't know how opt-in lists worked, but now I see why a script is a bad way to go. I'll definately be checking into other 3rd-party services that take care of this type of thing. Aweber looks very nice...

      Josh, aWeber looks amazing. This is more functionality that i'd even dreamed of. Thanks for pointing me to this valuable resource.

    1. Lack Of Strategy Many of the tools available to Internet marketers are either cheap or free. As a result, many new marketers are tempted to use them all at once. Successful Internet marketers begin with a strategy that identifies the goals of a campaign, the target audience and other key planning elements. Only then do they choose their tactics. Remember: tactics without strategy is the noise before defeat.

    After five years and almost one thousand projects, give it or take, I believe I have come up with a handful of more or less reliable signs that you're dealing with a bad client. I haven't reinvented the wheel, that's for sure. It's just like in that saying. Maybe I don't know what I want, but I certainly know what I don't want. The same goes here. Maybe I don't know how to find a good client, but I certainly know how to avoid a bad one. Also, I'm far from an ideal list. Sharing experiences regarding bad clients can help a lot. After all, we play in the same team. In addition, I strongly believe in Good Karma principle. Meaning, there's plenty of room and clients for everybody. Deal with real people not with avatars

    When people think of the term copywriter they will often imagine someone sitting at home or at a caf, tapping away at a laptop and churning out good copy for their immediate employer whether it be a one-off project or a long-standing relationship between a publication (online or print) and the copywriter. Now that might often be correct, but there are different types of copywriters out there. Lets have a look at the main types.

    I've been a relatively successful Freelance writer on over the last several years. I haven'€™t worked totally consistently during that time, but I've done pretty well and have recently been growing my business pretty aggressively and turning up the heat! I recently got connected with a start-up company that frequently uses Freelance to get tasks done for cheap, and I had a great conversation with the founder of that company which serves as the inspiration for this article. Employers have to work hard to ensure that they'€™re getting the right person when they hire a Freelancer. Once a project is accepted and a milestone is created, it can be a major hassle to resolve any disputes, especially those surrounding the quality of the work. I don't have a lot of insight into this process but I have learned a thing or two about choosing the right employers. A lot of folks have it in their head that the customer is always right, but as a Freelancer, you have the ability to choose who is and isn'€™t going to be your customer. Here are some guidelines for finding great employers that fit with your business.
