So I want to start using an autoresponder and have a few questions

Whats cheaper than Aweber without sacrificing quality? Recomendations for any specific services?

Does 1 subscription only allow you to have 1 list? So do you need to subscribe and pay 3 fees for lists for 3 diff, unrelated sites?

    If you are serious about IM I would reccomend either using Aweber or Get Response because they have the highest e mail deliverability rate and are going to eventually pay for themselves because a good follow up AR series will double or triple your sales.

    Currently Aweber has a 30 day test period for only $1 dollar and I think get response still offers 30 days for free so you can see which one you like the most.

    You can have as many different lists as you want under 1 account.

    Honestly... I think Aweber is the best bang for you buck... you can have as many separate lists as you want on Aweber. Additionally it has the most features.

    I have tried Aweber, Getresponse, and Icontact... and everytime I've come back to Aweber.

    Price-wise those three are all really close.

    The only negative about Aweber is that they really want you to use double opt in. You can disable double opt in, but as a soon as you get a few spam complaints (which you cant prevent) they will lock the double opt in feature on.

    My recommendation: Just go with Aweber. It's the leader in the industry and for good reason.

      I recently changed to Imnica Mail - so far it's working well for me.

          Never heard of constant contact, what you will find here is the majority of internet marketers use either Aweber or Get Response.

          Your best off spending a little bit of extra money on something that has a good reputation and a good track record of deliverability since the higher the deliverability rate the more people will open your emails causing you to make more sales.

            If you can have different lists under one subscription to the service, then how do they bill you?

            If your total subscribers across all lists exceede certain numbers?

            Like if you have a list with 300 people, one with 100, and one with 400.
            And if they charge $15 for <500 people, but $20 for 500-2000


            Also, anyone used or know anything about mailchimp?

    I just started with ShoutResponse from Alvin Phang. Easy to use & set up. A little less expensive than some of the others as you will pay a flat fee regardless of numbers of subscribers.

    And you can pay with Paypal which was a deciding factor for me.

    So far so good. Don't know what the support is like as I havent had to use it yet.

      The charges are graduated. A fixed sum for lists of one size and then increased fees as your lists increase in size. Check out the Aweber and GetResponse websites and you will find details of their pricing.

      You have been given some good advice in this thread, so I would suggest that you sign up with one of the "big two", rather than finding that when your lists and business expand, you have to try and migrate to an alternative AR, as your first choice either can't cope or has poor email deliver-ability.

      Just my thoughts and best of luck with your choice.

      Regards,
      Jeff Henshaw.
