    Hey guys,

    If i were to use a contact form plugin to collect emails as a widget ?

    is this similar to using aweber as a widget ?


    All i want to know is there any difference in the 2 email collection method?
    Thanks for reading this

    contact form sends you an email.. legally, to start mailing them you need to get their permission. you can accomplish this by adding a checkbox that says something along the lines of "Yes! Keep me informed about any big news in blah blah". You'd need a mailing list script (phplist works) to create/use those emails.

    aweber adds to list with double opt in so you can start emailing them right away.

    Well to be honest with you if you serious about your Internet marketing career, then you need to use aweber. You can try it out for $1 for 30 days.
