Looking to start a list and aweber looks great, but at this stage $19 a month is really not ideal until I develop a decent amount of opt-ins to merit a monthly subscription, then I am sure it will be well worth it.
So with that in mind - what are some cheaper options? Ahh, let me be honest, what are some free options?
I looked at mailchimp, but then heard they don't allow IM?
I don't mind manual work if need be. I just have put some restrictions on my making further cash outgoings now until I see some ROI coming back from what I have already paid out.
