    Any help would be appreciated :)
    Mailchimp just seems better to start off with. (free to 2000 subscribers)

    I don't think Mailchimp has an autoresponder in their free package anymore. This is important to most people.

    Mailchimp is also not very friendly to affiliates.

    I'm not sure on the autoresponder, but I have autoresponders on my free accounts. They're old though.

    Mailchimp does not allow affiliate/sales marketing. Also another reason is because of implied superiority due to popularity. Everyone here recommends WP for anything. Want to walk your dog? Wordpress. Take a crap? Wordpress has a mod for that! So if everyone says aweber, everyone will choose it and recommend it without having a comparison.

    Not only does Mailchimp not allow affiliate marketing, they don't offer tools that come close to AWeber for segementing your lists.

    I've been doing affiliate marketing with them for over a year now. I think if you're not smart, get a lot of compliants, etc, you'll get screwed tho.
