Send Email Broadcasts Without Paying Monthly Fees

5 replies
Here's an email marketing service alternative for those of you who don't want to invest in an autoresponder whether it be because you just want to test the waters in a new niche or because you can't afford it.

You do need a blog (set up a new, free one just for these mailings) and a feedburner account (again, free).

1. Burn your feed in Feedburner
2. From within your Feedburner account, click the publicize tab at the top and choose "Email Subscriptions" from the left side nav menu
3. Copy the HTML code and paste into a squeeze page - you're not limited to using it only on the blog associated with that feedburner account
5. Drive traffic to the squeeze page (you know the drill)
5. Anytime you want to "mail" your list, you post in your blog


- Since it's powered by google, I'm thinking the deliverability rates should be excellent
- Free
- Uses double opt-in
- Can use attention grabbing animated .gifs


- Plain looking
- Can't segment or personalize

Note: This is not something I use myself, so please don't bite my head off if I'm missing any pros or cons I just noticed a non-internet marketer doing this and initially thought they were using a regular email marketing service like us IMers. It looked good enough that I was seriously considering switching from GetResponse to "google" but was disappointed to see it was just this method.

    MailChimp is very good for the newbie that wants to dip their toe in the water but also minimise cost. Yes, you will have to forgo some features but it is a great palce to start while you learn the ropes and decided if the business is for you.

    I have found that Aweber is perhaps the next step up from the free broadcast systems and offers a few more tools, and great value too. I have used Aweber now for the past 3 years with no major issues or problems.
