    Hey Headboiler,

    I like your name lol

    I personally use Aweber. I love it! They're super easy to use and always on top of their game!

    They have a free 30-day trial version & afterwards it's 20/month for the first 500 subs and afterwards it scales up. You can just google Aweber pricing to see how much it'll be for your list.

    I know a lot of people whom use Aweber & love it!

    Its all personal preference though and most have a free 30-day trial so give it a run and let me know how it works for you!

    Hope this was insightful

    Talk soon, Adam

        For what it's worth, multimedia messaging has worked better for me in my business than simply using email.

        I have spent the last 4 years having developers build the perfect autoresponder for me. We are nearly ready to release it to the public (January 2016), but are currently beta testing. Our autoresponder will deliver email, SMS, MMS, and voice broadcast messages through the same message sequence.

        If you would be interested in a beta test account to take a test drive and check it out, visit our home page and sign up for the questionnaire.

    I've always used Mail Chimp. So I recommend you that. It's easy to use and you can analyze everything about the e-mails you send.

      If it's indeed a cold list - I suggest taking a look at Clickback. It's one of the few platforms available that can send to cold contacts.
      Hi Katie

      Thanks for your reply. Can you point me in the right direction with Clickbank for uploading leads please? I had no idea that they were an emailing platform as well?

      Thanks

    I started from Mail Chimp and remained its devoted fan. You won’t have any problem with importing a huge CSV list to this service, I’m sure.

    Most of the reputable email marketing solutions will not allow you to import email contacts via CSV. Better ask the company before subscribing to it.

    so if i have an organic list of 4,500 customers, i can't just upload them to an email marketing program such as aweber, mailchimp?

      I use Sendy.co with EasySendy service. They did all setup, I only bought my Sendy License for my domain name and EasySendy support team helped to integrate the installation with my Amazon account. Now sending emails at 10,000 for $1, very reliable deliveries. But, they have limitation on uploading csv files above 2MB, but, no issues, I made multiple files and uploaded them in separate list.

    Hello,

    How large is your list.

    You mentioned very large, that means you are going to upload list in millions?

    If so Mailchimp and other responders are never going to allow that. Also, another factor is whether your list is double optin or single optin. Or did you purchase your list? These are important factors to consider. You may have to do some list cleaning before sending any offer to this group

    A one not so often cited I've used with happyness, but with small opt-in lists (I guess they can handle bigger lists, but not opt-out ones) : MadMini at http://madmimi.com.

    I use get response - i check a lot of other email marketing service - aweber, mad mimi, mailchimp, host in my hosting domain mail server.
    But after all - i love getresponse - they have the advanced features better then all (only my opinion)
    For free - i suggest mailchimp - you get up to 2000 subs, but some limitation

    I've used MailChimp, Aweber, and Infusionsoft. None were just right for me.

      Aweber. They recently gave me a free upgrade for long service custom (they say and who am I not to believe them))- 7 years is a long time in Internet lingo. Now I can see how many and who actually opened my sent emails through the Aweber lists.

    Whichever platform you are using one humble suggestion is to validate your email list before your blast your campaigns. There are tools available which can remove the non existent email accounts, duplicates, spamtraps etc.

    Try Aweber or MailChimp.

    They are the best.

    Aweber allows you to import lists. I've used them for many years and am happy with the custom service and reliablity and email deliverability.

    I think both Aweber & Get Response are both great. If you aren't wanting to build landing pages for your list building then I highly suggest using get response because they have a bunch of prebuilt niche based landing pages you can tweak and use as your own. If you already have the landing pages you want, then it's a toss up if you ask me. I use them both and have come more familiar with Aweber just because I used them before I started Get Response. If you are looking for something easy and to the point you might want to try Aweber. They are a very solid platform and it's very easy to find what you are looking for inside. I think they still offer the first month for $1 and get response might be free for the first month. If I were you I would try them both out and see what you like the most about each and go from there. Hope this helps :-)
