    Hello Everyone,

    I Was Just Wondering What Your Thoughts Were On Each Of These Services?

    Which Would You Recommend ... Aweber or iContact?

    Or Is There Another Email Marketing Service That You Would Recommend?

    I Know Mailchimp Is Free But It Is Limited & Seems Quite Expensive Once You Have To Start Paying, Compared To Aweber & iContact.


    Thanks For Your Time.
    Jonny.

    I have only used GetResponse.

    After looking at the ones mentioned above and some desktop software I found getresponse to have all my needs at an ok price.

    Havent really heard too much about iContact and aweber is obviously the big dog, however I have heard of a few people with aweber that have had their accounts broken into and email lists messed about with. I dont know if they had poor passwords or if they were hacked, either way, just make sure your PW is as complex as you think it needs to be.

    That last line just reminded me - someone did try to change the password on the getresponse account I was working on - GR sends an email to you confirming you asked for the change (which I never), and wont change the PW until you confirm you did. Nice little security feature there.

    Thanks For Your Reply ahiddenman,

    Aweber Was My Initial Choice But Then I Came Across iContact & That Just Seemed A Little Cheaper.

    Thanks Again.

    AWeber hands down... you'll get the inbox everytime as opposed to iContact which goes to some spam folders.

    You will be happy spending the extra couple of dollars for the quality.

    Thanks For Your Reply BassTrackerBoats,

    Yes, Thats What I Was Worried About Aswell ... Inboxing Emails.

    Ive Run A Test A Few Times With Mail Chimp & Found A Lot Of My Emails Ended Up In The Junk/Spam Folders.

    I Didnt Want To Start Paying For A Service Until I Had Some Feedback From People Who Have Used Them.

    Aweber Does Seem The Most Popular When In Comes To IM, I Guess I Should Follow The Crowd On this One.

    Thanks Again

    Definitely Aweber. Not only is the service better, you don't get whacked with charges per email sent - saves you a fortune over time.

    I vote Aweber... Their deliverability is awesome. Takes all the technical headaches out of your mailings so you can focus on conversions.
