Hi everybody,

I use iContact for my email marketing, but I wonder whether to change it. May be Aweber or GetResponse or Constant Contact, one of these is better service...any suggestions? Let's talk about the benefits of the hosted email services...

I also use iContact. There's a couple little things that I wish were better, but overall, it's pretty good as professional AR systems and their pricing structures go.

Before iContact, I used Aweber and was a huge fan of it. Then at the end of 2009, "hackers" poached all the contact lists and I honestly don't feel honest or comfortable telling people that their info is safe when the service I am/was using wasn't secured enough recently to protect my name on other people's lists. I still get several virus-loaded email messages per day to compromised email addresses.

Before Aweber, I used TrafficWave. TrafficWave isn't bad, it is appropriately targeted towards affiliate marketers but my impression of it then was that the AR services were more of a front-end product for the affiliate program than a product with an affiliate program. This may have changed IF TrafficWave has added more to their AR services, but I haven't gathered that they've gone that direction.

I do have a GetResponse account, but at the point I tried it a little - which I will disclose was not much - I didn't feel the service was entirely together. Perhaps at one point, but kind of reminded me of a dying town. If you desire to check it out, they do offer a limited, free account.

I have NOT used ConstantContact and thus do not maintain a particular opinion of them. However, you should carefully read the ConstantContact T&C. They prohibit using the their services by someone who
"Promotes, solicits or participates in pyramid schemes or multi-level channel and/or network marketing (MLM) businesses, including but not limited to personal work-at-home offers promoting "get rich quick", "build your wealth" and "financial independence" offerings. "

For the sake of getting it out, there are also many "free" and "cheaper" AR services available but I would not recommend taking a risk with anything that seems to undercut the average pricing for services, as you'll pay for it in other, less direct ways.

Hi - changing autoresponders is a big move and one that will cost you subscribers.

Both AWeber and Get response are very good - I am trialling Get Response at the moment for a specific campaign I'm running and think that it's probably the best of all, however both have an increasing pay scale per subscriber.

A great budget alternative is Traffic Wave - very high deliverability rate, with all the features that a auto -responder should have

I've several of these systems and they all have their pluses and minuses. Personally, I like Traffic Wave for many reasons... primarily because it's one monthly fee for unlimited AR's and Leads. There is never an up charge no matter how big you build. They also pay excellent affiliate commissions as well.

Traffic Wave is a double opt-in system, but it works better than any 2 op system I've ever used. People actually follow through and the list grows incredibly well.

Traffic Wave is set up for fast, easy use. There are plenty of pre-created thank you and follow up pages that save a lot of time and effort.

Two big thumbs up for Traffic Wave.

Gee no matter how many campaigns I have or make..
or how many opt-ins I have..

The price is the same.

Throw in a affiliate commissions.

This tool is required by anyone doing marketing on the internet.

So the question is how much are you willing to pay for a list of 10000?
Or get payed to make a list and still have a great product.

oh yeah the price you pay is the same for 10 people as its is for 100,000

As well Traffic wave has done a bunch of upgrades to AdTracker real time monitoring there company's out that charge the same price as the auto-responder.

They have as well just updated their servers so they are faster then ever.

the winner is Traffic Wave.

I guess have to agree with most of the people here.

I purchased my own autoresponder so I don't have to pay anyone. I can have as many campaigns as I want plus the program allows me to throttle the amount of traffic so I do not exceed how many emails I can send per hour. The program worked so well that I purchased 5 licenses and I currently have a couple extra so if anyone is interested just contact me for more information.

I've have used both Aweber and TW ... Aweber is better, have a few things TW don't have. But both works for most people...

If You Own your own business in TE Land... Aweber can be a pit picky with how you sign up the members to your program after they opt in to your AR.

I'm Investigating this right now. If Brian the owner of TW can fix that pass through of Data - place the persons email or name on the tx or confirm page by auto... then I'll give it a 2nd chance.

If Not... then I'll go with Getresponse
Ok I'll keep AWeber as well for personal use.

Best Regards

Well, I have a Traffic Wave account, but I don't know how to use it. I know it's shameful and I do want to remedy my situation, I just don't know how to do that either.
