I am in search of an email marketing tool for my newsletter. I am currently using ymlp but am not 100% thrilled with their support. However i can not afford aweber or constant contact

i was hoping soemone here could recommend a simple one to use but not extremely expensive

thank you

Hi Cathy,

Check out www.emailaces.com

Their account level one is $8.95/month. I used them for a couple months..I use Aweber now though and I love them!

Just remember if/when you switch to aweber later, your subscribers will have to re-verify themselves.

Hope that helps,

Rigdha :)

Is the $17.95/month of GetResponse too expensive?

How many subscribers would you want to have before the $17.95 sounded like a bargain? Or the !9.95 for Aweber?

If you're not sure, guess..

I'd recommend paying for a service that you can afford now and stick to for the long term. Unless your subscribers are very loyal you will probably loose a large percentage when you move from one provider to another.

Have you considered AutoresponsePlus - it's hosted on your own domain (they can do the set up for you) and for a one off fee of $197 and there is no monthly fees

Hi Wahm,

I hope it is ok to answer your question by pointing to my own service, which starts at $1 per month.

It's a terrible experience when you get into trouble with your SMTP, either if blacklisted, or the web hosting simply won't allow it.

If you were to use your own script like PHPlist, you'd better at least get a VPS hosting, which sometimes cost upto $50/month, or better yet, dedicated server... Most Web hosting won't allow you to do it on shared hosting, or sometimes they have some restrictions like only 100 emails per hour or something like that.

But then again, going for GetResponse is a lot cheaper than that.

If you are thinking for cheaper mailing list solutions like EmailAces.com and thinking that you'd most-likely move up to bigger account, you'd better just start with GR or Aweber.

For the same price, $19+ (or $17+ at GR), GR offers better system, features than EmailAces. And moving between mailing list providers is a huge hassle.

I use Getreponse. If you sign up the yearly plan, it works out to be about $13 per month or something close, can't remember what it is exactly.
