Aweber or GetResponse?

14 replies
This has probably been discussed multiple times before but I would like input from people who have tried both. Let me tell you what I have learned about the two.
Get Response is cheaper for up to 2500 subscribers. Aweber then becomes cheaper for 2501+ subscribers. I have heard that GetResponse's customer support pales in comparison to Aweber's, so Aweber is probably the way to go if you're a newbie that needs support. As for deliver-ability and reliability I am still in the dark. Any input on this would be greatly appreciated.

    I moved from GetResponse to Aweber...simply because of it's delivery for me..
    Of cause there are more factors to be in the equation of why either are good or bad.

    Getresponse VS Aweber
    How easy to set up campaigns?
    GR has slightly more options in which means more steps to do.
    Aweber are much simpler to set it up.

    Webform/Newsletter Templates
    Both have over 300++ templates, both are responsive.
    This it depends you're using HTML or Plain text, that's for you to split test.

    Delivery
    I would say most Top Guru's use Aweber more or if you're the Big Huge Company, you would go for InfusionSoft.

    Price:
    That would be depending on your list. If your list gets bigger, then generally you have to pay more.
    GetResponse give limitations and price will be more expensive.
    Aweber on the other hand, the bigger your list, the cheaper it gets..

    Hmm.. that's all i can say for now.. haha!
    Let me know of more features...XD

    I uses both GR & Aweber, but 80% on aweber...

    Have accounts at both because there are a few systems that only tie into GR...

    Aweber is definitely our go-to.

      If it was between just the two, I would go with Aweber as it is much easier to use than GR.

      Opening up the field, Infusionsoft is the best system I've seen out there for advanced automation. Plus, the API is supported and there are a TON of integrations. Downside is the $2K startup fee. Also has a poor deliverability rate if your target market is Corporate-type businesses.

    Aweber is easy to use and has better email deliverability rate.

      I've tried everything from Aweber/Get Response to self hosted solutions and I am now down to just Aweber and GVO.

      Aweber never lets me down, high open rates, easy list segmentation and still allowing single opt-in.

      GVO I just use for solo ad lists as they don't seem to worry about multiple mailings a day compared to GR or Aweber.

      Thanks, Shane

    My best experience has been with Aweber even though it passed through some problems mailing out recently. I think some group was attacking all of the main autoresponders. Nice information on InfusionSoft. tks

    I know of a lot of people who use, and are happy with, AWeber. As a web programmer though, my favorite lies with SendGrid. Although you need a a bit of programming experience, I find at the end it's easier to customize exactly what I want, right down to link tracking and analytics.

    I've used Aweber for years and still do. It wasn't until recently my JV partner and I use her system, GetResponse for the project we're working on. I have to say that IMO, Aweber blows GR out of the water. It's much easier to use.

    I prefer Aweber and have been using them even after the infamous hack a couple of months back. It's super easy to use and the delivers perfectly every time without fail.

    Aweber $1 for the first month. Give it a try and consider which one to use later.
