Hi everyone,
I know that the best way to do marketing is building your email list.. The things is- 180 dollars a year for aweber is sooo much money!!!!!!
Isn`t there a cheaper way to do things?
Please tell me if there is....
I`ll spend 10 dollars a month for hosting but 180 dollars a year- there has to be a cheaper way to send out our newsletters :D

Hello Learning,

Do you have a mailing list already or are you in need of building one?

You can use a mail manager program to get your newsletters out to your lists and that can be done right from your hosting account.

There are ways to build mailing lists, they take time to build but it is not impossible though.

What kind of newsletter are you sending out? who is your target audience?

I`m actually in need of building one. The whole thing is that Lynn said that many times they aren`t even receiving our emails if we do it through the host. So I was wondering of a way that we can do it somewehre else.

There are services out there that do allow for bulk emailing. It all depends on what your host has set for a threshhold on your email server. One trick that I learned a long time ago is that you have with any service got to throttle your outgoing mail, have it send them out like 1 every 5-6 seconds or so. That will prevent the server from freaking out and thinking you are sending out spam.

Those settings can be done simply within your list manager or email software program.

Hope this helps

I do not prevent my hosting customers from sending from mailing lists, the only thing I ask is that they throttle the emails being sent to prevent sudden surges in either bandwidth or cpu usage. If my clients have opt in lists that they are working with, as long as all recipients are verified opt in no biggie to me.
