    Anyone using aweber for email marketing, or is there some cheap alternative plug-in for wordpress that does exactly what aweber does if not better?

    I don't know about Wordpress, but Drupal have Simplenews, Email Marketing Framework etc which are mailout functions.

    I would love to post a video tutorial for you because it's easier to explain, but I couldn't find anything in English :/ (French and Russian were simple enough to find)

    There's open source PHP email newsletter systems, just install them on your server on a subdomain or something and learn how to use the UI. Just make sure your SMTP server is good enough to send bulk mailouts without anything restrictions, technical issues (ie: hourly limits) or invest in a decent SMTP server.

    Example of Open source mailer:

    Note: Can't vouch for the above, never used it but it seems to have good reviews.
