Wordpress Plugin Question

I am wanting to start to get subscribers to a blog. I just started this blog last week, and want people to be able to subscribe and be notified via email whenever I make a new post, and in future will email market to that list. I am not ready to use Aweber yet until I get a couple of hundred subscribers to my blog. I was searching in WordPress plugins to see if I could find something to use there in the meantime.

I found a plug in called Wysija, and another one called Navayan, that look like they might do the trick. Does anyone know if these plugins work well for what I am looking for, or have any other suggestions?

Thanks for your help.

    My suggestion would be to use Aweber. They have a $1 30 day trial so you have 30 days to get building your list. The more you have on the line the more likely it is you will work hard to get those subscribers.

    You don't want to have to transfer leads over to Aweber at a later stage since you will lose most of them when they have to reconfirm.

    Jetpack is also working well, too!
    I just wanna tell you that most of the links in the signature are trash and/or a trap to make you pay!

    That is very good advice from Will. A lot of your subscribers may not want to have to re-subscribe later when you transfer them to your autoresponder so it is definitely a good investment to make if you are desiring to build a list.

    You can use mailchimps free upto 2k subscribers and their rss integration. They also have a free WP plugin to handle the WP side of it all.

    If you want to be tied to a 3rd party and be subject to their rules and regulations for the rest of your IM career then by all means take the advice listed above.

    On the other hand if you'd rather be the 'master of your own domain' you may want to look into self hosting your own AR. That way you are 100% in control and responsible for everything that happens... good and bad But if you pay attention to a few basic areas there really aren't too many bad things... despite what the talking heads will tell you.

    Good luck

      Thanks for all the advice. Since the consensus seems to be Aweber, I think I will just go ahead and bite the bullet, and get set up with them.
