GetResponse vs AWeber Autoresponders???

25 replies
I need to decide between GetResponse or AWeber and would like feedback from those of you who have used one or both. I will be doing affiliate marketing as well as other websites that need a good quality autoresponder.

Why should I choose one over the other? I keep noticing posts that show up as aweber/getresponse as though these are essentially equivalent.

What will I be missing if I choose one instead of the other? How easy is it to work with each one and the support?

I was considering MailChimp for some projects but then found out that it cannot be used with affiliate products.

    Roger, I was researching that very thing today, and I found this post that is fairly recent that probably answers your question -

    Hello Roger,

    have you considered using a white label Aweber AR such as ProFollow? The only difference between the two is a dramatic decrease in price and the loss of advanced tracking stats which you do not even need to pay the extra for, just use a link redirect instead, but you still get Aweber's deliverability.

    Another AR I have been hearing many positive things about is Imnica Mail, a lot of people have switched over to them because of the major difference in cost and they don't seem to have noticed any difference in their bank account.

    im using imnica right now their price is great, and up until recently their service was superb. They havent responded to a support ticket in 2 days Hopefully it was just a slipup and he missed my email somehow, so i will be sticking with them.

    Rodger,

    If I was you I would not worry about the difference. I personally use Aweber (my partners choice & she is very rigorous) but the most important is that you get A auto responder and get selling your affiliate products.

    Both Aweber and Getresponce have been around and have a good reputation so you can put your trust in either.

    Let me know which you plan on going for.

    Your Welcome.

    I just started using the free version of GetResponse and am quite disappointed. My subscribers are forced to join one of GR's newsletters. Really annoying.

    There is a thread about this issue: http://www.warriorforum.com/main-int...ion-issue.html Looks like the paid version won't have this though (I really hope so).

    I use both Aweber and Getresponse and like them both equally. You really can't go wrong with either one in my opinion.

    I use both, however your better off with xmailpro if you are going to use aweber, its 19.95 a month for a list of 10,000 and you can add the extra aweber bells and whistles at a later date, XMailPro - Home

    (not a aff link mods!)

    I use Aweber & Getresponse they are both good but I prefer Aweber because I find the graphics a bit more user friendly and it's a little bit cheaper.

    Lamber: GR has 99%+ deliverability as well. We don't say 99.34% or 99.56% because it fluctuates all the time, and there are multiple factors to take into consideration when you compute deliverability.

    Alice: actually GetResponse is more cost effective. Our pricing starts at $9.95/mo. That's 8 bucks less than the other guys. Besides, with GR you can save even more if
    you prepay -- we offer 15% / 18% prepay discount on large lists, something
    that our competitor doesn't do (they bill you for list surcharge every month, without
    a discount).

    Nahar: co-reg ads can be removed after you upgrade to the paid version.

      Hi Simon,

      I am not a GetResponse user but i am interested to subscribe after hearing so many positive feedbacks from the Warriors. But before that, i wanna know what is the price difference between Getresponse Pro and Getresponse Premium? I clicked on the order link but did not see any option for me to choose between the Pro and Premium version. Below is the website which confuses me:

      Hope to hear a reply from you directly Simon.

    James, the only difference was the disk space. "Premium" offered
    more space. Right now, we're upgrading the disk space for all
    of our paid customers to 1 GB, so "Premium" will no longer exist.

    We now have only FREE & paid account ("PRO").

      Thanks Simon, after your explanation it does make things easier to understand now.

    I have been using aweber for a long time and I have never had a problem, they delivery rate is pretty high, nevertheless I want to point out something that most people don't talk about, whatever system you are going to choose you need to have in mind that you will be using that system almost forever, why? it is extremely difficult to pass one list from one auto responder to another, I made this mistake and cost me more than half of my list. Good luck

    I use both and both are great but for some reason I like Get Response better.

    I am not judged by the number of times I fail, but by the number of times I succeed. And the number of times I succeed Is in direct proportion to the number of times I can fail and keep trying.

    They are interchangeable to me. I suggest just trying them both and then pick the one you feel more comfortable using.

    I was wondering if that cost is $9.95 a month or £9.95 per month. looking at the prices from the UK seems cost more than Looking at them from the US.

    How about looking at it from the EU? Would it cost 9.95 Euro? Just wondering if it cost 9.95 per country currency or really $9.95 US Dollar?

    Hi Roger,
    I was in that boat a few weeks ago, so I tried out both and I prefer Aweber much more than getaresponse. I found getaresponse to be confusing for me and I don't like their templates and i find Aweber is much more straight forward. Although, that may be just how my mind works. However, it sounds like they are both great services, from the other responses, so you will just have to try both out and see which one you like.
    Frith,

    The one BIG difference between Aweber and GetResponse.

    Aweber has a superb blog integration feature that GetResponse fails miserably at.

    GR only emails when there is a new blog post without a custom Subject.

    Aweber can email a weekly digest of all blog posts with a unique Subject.
    GREAT for building a blog community.

    I use GR but I'm grandfathered in to the old pricing. I wish I grandfathered in Aweber back in the day.
