    Hi,

    im looking for a way to monetize my website further and was thinking about adding email subscription box on the thank you page (i have my own tactic). But since I havent used email marketing before then I need help. First of in what format should I collect emails? collect them all into a database? But how can I then respond to them and etc. Aweber looks nice, but im not sure its for me, although I could inbox with them I would not want my account to be shut down for some complaints. Can I inbox with interspire and what kind of server/servers I need etc.

    Im kind of lost with all this...

    PS! The website has like 10k unique visitors to thank you page each day.

    With greetings,
    eestisiin

    If everything your doing is legit then aweber/getresponce would be a great option.

    What I want to do is collect them and once a month or etc send them an "Critical update" thus generating a nice extra revenue each month :) Im not sure if aweber would be the best solution, cause im sure aweber will find something wrong with my campaign, thus id lose my clients - i have heard about those situations..

    Could anyone throw me a bone on how to collect emails, into an database? But in what format and etc, so it would be easilly used in interspire or etc, cause im not sure if aweber would work!

    Thanks,

    Home Page:
    Aweber would work. If you collect double optins from your web page you shouldn't have a problem. If you don't feel comfortable use Get response or constant contact. Interspire would be a waste of time if you don't know how to inbox or where to even get IPS that work with all major ISP providers. If you are worried about losing your clients just export your data to .CSV format everyday so if you get shutdown for complaints you can just go to another esp. There are plenty other ESPs other than aweber, get response, icontact ,'etc. Just look around.

    Set up Interspire on your server:

    - Create a list "MySite Opt-Ins"
    - Create a new form named "MySite Opt-In Form"
    -- Create Name & Email field
    -- Select HTML format
    -- Make sure these are double opt-ins
    -- Copy code & paste code on website
    - Collect emails
    - Create email campaign (visual editor)
    - Send campaign to your list

    Optional:
    - Create auto-responder for fresh entries

    You can do the same stuff with Mailchimp for free (up to 2K entries). If your contacts double-opt-in then you will have a very low bounce rate and they won't complain that much, so Mailchimp & Aweber should be fine with it as long you follow their rules (G**gle Can SPAM Act) and you don't send out pure SPAM
