Autoresponders, whats best?

55 replies
Came across TrafficWave Autoresponder.
The most cost effective I've seen with unlimited subscribers and lists for the same price.
Is anyone here using it?
Do you know about their deliverability etc
Or what is the best alternative?

Thanks

    I haven't tried traffic wave but based on my experienced Aweber / Getresponse gets the highest delivery rate compared to other services/ self hosted autoresponder out there.

    They maybe a bit expensive compared to others but personally it is worth it! You get what you paid for.

    Aweber / Getresponse gets the highest delivery rate
    From the people I've talked to, TW deliverability is way higher due to requiring double opt.

    A lot of deliverability is due to the sender not the system.

      True, just to dig deeper into this and why I think aweber,gr has good choice(not just deliverability).

      1.) If you're IP Address has been flagged as spam, your deliverability will most likely suffer.

      This is the problem with small autoresponder and self hosted ones since they have a limited IP address and if you're a marketer you'll notice that regardless of how good your contents are you will still get a complaint.

      GR / Aweber do suffer from these IP Blacklisting problems as well and I notice that my deliverability goes down from time to time but they tend to resolve it on a timely manner.


      2.) Other autoresponders are not internet marketer friendly and tends to ban internet marketers account , especially the ones who are doing affiliate marketing.

        How do we know if the IP is blacklisked?
        With a lot of activity, is it possible to know if we are safe or wasting efforts?

    In all honesty, Mailchimp has been the best for me as it allows me to scale up for each new list I build without paying for a certain volume I haven't reached yet.

      Mailchimp is a good service however it's worth noting that they don't like affiliate offers being sent to subscribers nor are they too keen on those in the MMO niche. It's worth knowing BEFORE signing up.

      I use GetResponse, great flexibility and great prices.

          I've had a better experience with aweber so far than the others I previously tried. Also note aweber is usually works perfectly with most (if not any) wordpress theme while some of the others may be more complex, if not impossible to get working right depending on the theme you are using.

    I am a trafficwave user and I think they have an excellent service. The flat fee they charge is great compared to the increased fees you pay to the others when your list gets bigger. They also have a good affiliate program which you are eligible for if you are using their service.

    I've always used Aweber since my early beginnings. Never had a problem with it and don't see a need to try something else.

    It really depends on where you're at in IM and what you want to accomplish. Many start/stay with aweber or get response and swear by them. There's nothing wrong with that. These services are simple for newbies to use.

    As they grow, some people want higher levels of marketing automation. That's where pricier solutions like infusionsoft and ontraport come in. But their high level ability comes with a high level price tag.

    A compromise between the intro services like aweber, gr, mail chimp, etc. and the top tier is Lead Outcome. It gives you more control over your list, acquiring new leads (no double optin), ability to manually or automatically move leads from list to list by their actions (without them having to fill out a form), and more.

    Like the high-end systems, LO is a CRM based system. That means records are based on the lead, not the list. Unlike the low end where the record is based on the list, every time the same lead signs up for a new list, you are not charged as if it's a separate lead. If you have multiple lists, you can quickly exceed list limits with the low end services (raising your rate per month), even though you don't really have that many actual leads.

    Just like the other services mentioned, LO works with ISP's to ensure high deliverability rates. Deliverability is based on more than just the service you use. The email you're sending from (your domain or freebie like yahoo or gmail), the words you use, are you using images, the kind of links, all factor in

    I use, train for, and am an affiliate with Lead Outcome.

    People equating deliverability = inboxing are wrong. They are two separate things. Deliverability only measures the amount of emails that are successfully sent. Whether they bounce or hit the spam box they're still counted in companies claim of 99% or better deliverability.

    3rd party AR's are fine for small operations, but I'd suggest getting a self hosted with a dedicated server for anything over 10,000. Not doing so is similar to running a high traffic website on a shared hosting plan. Your inboxing is only going to be as good as the most spammy marketer on that same IP.

    Hi VizyMedia,

    I would think Aweber and Getresponse have it covered for deliverabilty, however Insty.me hosting integrate with the Amazon system which also delivers well, but the fees are extremely cheap. Worth a look.

        Yes, you want your emails in the in box. That's a given. Get response and Aweber both do that pretty well as does Traffic Wave.

        However, if you're promoting in the IM space then you'll need integration. You need a company that intergrates with all the latest greatest things that come up every 2 seconds.

        The two that do that are Aweber and Get Response.

        Something to think about.

    Rocket Responder is good too, only $20 a month no matter how many subs you have or lists, but it is double optin and no imports allowed. Hits the inbox all the time.

    In my opinion GetResponse is much better than Aweber. If you want a trial version you can easily find it on GetResponse official website for free and if you think about get Aweber you have to pay $1 for a month... I know that's only a dollar but I don't wanna enter my credit card details just for a try...

    Hey Mate! Trafficwave is what I use. They have been in business since 2000 and has a very good deliverabilty rate.

    They also have one of the best multi tier affiliate programs on the planet. My sig file below actually gives away a landing page tied the trafficwave autoresponder to help give you sales yourself.

    Nice thing about them that I really like is they they pay weekly and are on time every time. Haven't missed a payment yet! They also pay a monthly residual which is very cool.

      i've used aweber for multiple things before and this is true about them dumping you. you can be sending the most quality emails with no links, zero spam whatsoever.... and if you get a random single complaint for no reason at all... the deliveribility rate on your next email drops like a rock. regardless of ANYTHING.

      i think i might try getresponse on this new venture and see how it goes. cant go wrong with no credit card info on the first month.

        Summing it up. Looks like it narrows down to 3 contenders:

        AWeber
        Traffic Wave
        and MailChimp

        Compared to these 3, what do you guys think of ActiveCampaign? Has anyone here tried it before? On my end, it looks like it has the potential to be one of the contenders in the near future.

        Thanks

    I gotta go with Aweber. I like Getresponse too, but Aweber makes things easy and super simple. The cost fluctuates depending on how many subscribers you accumulate, but this isn't something that should make you NOT choose it. Once you're making the money in your business that is sky high... the trivial fee that Aweber will want will mean nothing to you.

    TrafficWave is good in the sense they hav good reputation with the major ISPs like Google and Yahoo so their deliverability is high. They require double opt in so spam complaints against you will be NIL or negligible. They hav a flat rate whether your subscribers are 2 or 2 million. You can create unlimited campaigns. You can use other features like ad trackers where you can track and analyse your ads date wise, IP address etc. Considerin one flat rate and with just three referrals that fee is also covered so its Free there on and possibility to earn huge passiv income too. All these things make it my choice of autoresponder. Wish you luck

      Have been using TW for several years without problems.

      They have a simple 30 minute setup tutorial to experience it with a campaign promoting them and you earn.

      They have a 30 day free trail.

      And now they are offering an import list feature, where you can import your list from another autoresponder to TW without having to have your subscribers going through the process of confirming the import.

      Of course, your list must be spam free, harvest free. It must be a legitimate list.

      This is the most dreaded aspecto of changing autoresponders having to have your subscribers to do the confirmation if they ever do the change.

      Your friend,

      Antonios

    Trafficwave is good for some cases the flat rate is nice for lists that you know have a high bounce rate or fake sign ups etc such as a free membership site costs for a site like this could seriously stack up over time on a system such as Aweber etc.

    However Aweber has a good amount of features it can do which I use to great effect with my blog making it worth the extra money. They also seem to always be one of the first auto responders that works well with plugins and other cool products out there.

    So it all comes down to what your planning to do and what you want out of your auto responder.

      Actually, if you have a high bounce rate or fake signups, you won't be using TrafficWave for very long. We don't allow that sort of nonsense.

    Auto Responder.
    There are several well-known Email Auto mail responders, including Aweber, iContact and Get Response and mailchimp . They are used to automate email distribution Lists for mass email send outs, and to send a series of pre-sequenced, pre-written email send outs and sales funnels.


    Yes it can – depending on how big your List is, and how you want to use your list to market your website online. If you only want to start building your List of Subscribers by designing and installing a Subscribe By Email Optin Form on your blog, send Welcome emails, and send out weekly newsletters to your trusty band of fans, then a Free Email system is fine. And Mailchimp’s Forever Free account will make this very easy to do. The Free option is almost fully automated, and makes managing your Subscriber List a breeze.

      Blogging and email marketing are really two separate tools/techniques. There can be some overlap in using them, of course.

      The good news is that many of the better AutoResponder companies offer free trials to help you get started with zero risk.

      There really is no debating that the money is in the list, especially if you build and manage your lists well.
