From what I hear, a lot of the free autoreponders will result in ads popping up all over the place - you do not want that.

Aweber has a 30 day money back guarantee, so you might as well give it a shot...I use it, and I highly recommend it.

Well, I know that Constant Contact used to have a free 60 day trial (I think) - you can give them a try.

Honestly, Constant Contact is now blacklisted by many ISP's... AND, if you start with one company, you may find it difficult to move your list over later (without having them all opt-in again). This is something to consider, because their pricing can get very high compared to Aweber and GetResponse once you get to a certain number of subscribers & mailings.

Lynn's right. A mailing list is your biggest asset. It's not easy to build a list
and it's even harder to build a relationship with your subscribers.

When you're ready to switch to Aweber, you may find that your mailing list
of 10,000 subscribers can be reduced to a couple of hundreds overnight. :(

I'm speaking from experience.

People are busy on the net and sometimes even if they really like getting
your mails, they're too lazy to click that confirmation link. I've been one of
those lazy people. :oops:

Anyway, something to think about.

But if you really want a free autoresponder, GetResponse does offer
a free version (with less features of course).

I believe GetResponse only allows up to 5 messages in the sequence for the free version and has ads at the top of the messages.

this is scary.....wow now i am not sure of

Postby edwinnyc » Thu Jul 26, 2007 9:02 pm

not sure what to do.........

At the moment it is not in my budget, to go with aweber, but this does give me something to think about

I guess my only option is maybe to use a autoresponder I can handle, do not let it get too big, or not use one at all...

Is there any other way to move them over, do they have to optin again or can I move them myself manually or something like that......... :shock:

You can save the list (export them) from your AR service (most services anyway) Most of the better ARs (like aweber) will most likely make you have your list optin again. But they have been known to make certain exceptions but only very rarely.

It's a pain but with all the spam issues nowadays. I don't really blame them for protecting their businesses.

Wish I could be more help here.

Best of luck to you!

If you are looking for a great free autoresponder service, I will suggest
www.freefollowup.com

They are one of the few free service that will not load your campaigns
with Ads. Really ad-free.


but on the long run, moving your list will be a problem,
so start with one and stick with it
