Email marketing solutions, Advice!?

15 replies
Hi Guys,

I am reading in on three different email marketing providers and wanted your opinion on the matter!

These three i am reffering to:
- Getresponse
- Mailchimp
- Activecampaign

Now i have not worked with either one of these and was wondering what your experience is with all of them or just one.

Thanks for the time and effort in replying i greatly appreciate it!

Zino.

    Mail chimp - I'm pretty sure you can't use this for anything to do with affiliate marketing.

    I've always been an Aweber customer and found them to be top notch.

    I think Get response is doing some very clever stuff integrating with JV Zoo.

    I guess as always it depends on what you are want from the autoresponder.

    Deliver-ability is a major factor- you've spent time and effort and perhaps money building your list so you want to make sure your emails get through rather than hit the spam box.

    Most people I hear in the IM field seem to say Aweber or Getresponse (if not both). Getresponse used to do a free trial, but not sure whether they still do, and Aweber I think still do a $1 trial.

    Out of the list you've given, go with GetResponse,

    But, AWeber is by far one of the best.

    I moved my account from Aweber for one main reason: list segmentation.

    I now use MadMimi.com, who are absolutely fantastic! But they don't allow affiliate marketing. And ActiveCampaign who are equally incredible, but just take a little bit longer learning curve.

    Aweber does not permit you to dynamically segment your list via user behavior. For example, if you have a user on LIST_A, that you want to automatically move to LIST_B when they click on an email link (or some other action), with Aweber, they will need to reconfirm in order to be on that new list.

    Madmimi sees that subscriber as your own property, no matter what list they get tossed around too. Obviously, if you abuse this privilege, they'll unsubscribe quickly.

    The future of Aweber is precarious. I think they'll need to change that, or new services will be taking over soon.

    All depends how good is your email list? If you are having a list with a lot of hard bounces and possible abuse complaints, non of the above listed email marketing service provider will let you send for long. Choose one of them if you are have double opt in email list, when it says double opt in it means you don't only have the permission of the subscribers but also have confirmed their email addresses. Even in case of single opt in, you may be having anyone in your list may be invalid emails.. So choice depends on your list, and if it is going to be marketing on a purchased/ scrapped list, the only chance is your own mailing server.

    I just found BenchmarkEmail, and using it, it's quite good to try for free, until you want to pay for more

    Hi Guys thanks for the responses,

    Let me give some extra details to what i am gonna work with,
    I will have double opt-ins where quality leads/emailadresses are more important to me than quantity.

    Based on different interactions on my website i will create different funnels where my subscribers will fall in, and based on their behavior i would like to send them emails. (i know this is possible with Active campaign, and is fairly simple to install. But how about Aweber or get response?)

    For you guys who have suggested me Aweber, do you guys know if they work with the same #interest system that active campaign works with?

    Now i have seen alot fo you suggest Aweber could you guys explain why? I went to their website and was not wowed at all.

    Sorry for my english i am native dutch!

    They offer a similar service.

    Mailchimp is free under 2000 subscribers

    So does anybody have a solid reason why I should choose Aweber instead of MailChimp?

    I'm just starting out with email marketing and wanted something free (mailchimp for under 2k subs) for testing the waters.

    Thanks!

      Try madmimi.com. They are simpler, and better than both these services. Just depends on what you email content is about though, as they don't accept everyone.

    Well if your lists are double opt in, choose whatever you want between the two mentioned Aweber or Mailchimp. Whatever looks cost effective and gives good support and goes well with your need.However i guess Mailchimp limits your numbers with free account you may get your auto responders disabled as well, in free account. Both have their technical ins and outs, but both are good providers. Depends what suits your needs.

      I've worked with ActiveCampaign. They're good. A bit more focused on B2B, and are more expensive. But they do allow a lot of great segmentation possibilities.

      I set up all my clients with ActiveCampaign.

      Personally, though, for my own lists, I use MadMimi. They are outstanding, and their API allows for any sort of list segmentation you can think of. It's great.

    There are a lot of AR service providers for sure. I've used (and still use) AWeber and have been very pleased with them and have recently started using SendLane. It's not at all uncommon for an IMer to use different service providers.
