    Looking for good email newsletter sending service?
    Can anyone recommend a good place to use for sending newsletters? Right now we are using aweber but it has gotten quite pricey with the size of our lists. Are there any cheaper but reliable places? How about deliverability?

    I'm a HUGE fan of MailChimp, especially if you're a novice email marketer.

    ConstantContact has a pretty shallow learning curve as well.

    I use yourmailinglistprovider.com or the shorter url is ymlp.com

    Does the job, free for up to 1000 subscribers per list.

    I started using Mailchimp about a two months ago. Except for the login software upgrade this past week, I really like them. I especially like that they tie in with Google Analytics.

    I'm still on their free account and no problems so far.

    I also use Aweber and the only problem I have been experiencing lately is my spam count. My newsletter is supposed to be a double opt-in and yet I am having problems with spam counts. Can anyone tell me why this is happening and if there is a better service out there? Thanks for your help.

    You should take a look at the xxxxxxxxxx. Their autoresponder servce is run by ebizac.com and is on a par with aweber. Also, for the price you are paying aweber, you get a hosting account and much more.

    Hope I helped.

    BTW - the URL is

    Could be caused by

    A) Not mailing enough. If someone signs up for your newsletter and you mail them a month later, they most likely wont remember signing up and complain.

    B) Mailing too much. No one wants a to be mailed multiple times a day.

    C) Misleading them to sign up from your website or confirmation email. If the newsletter is not what they thought it to be, they will complain.

    D) Crappy newsletter. If you dont have anything of value in your newsletter, they will complain.

    Im sure there are more reasons out there but those are a few just off the top of my head.
    Hope it helps.

    I have always seen constant contact in my inbox so I would recommend them, I have heard they have high standards and are strict on who they let in and thats probably why they keep a good reputation with all the major isps.

    phplist is a free install on your server solution that runs well in LAMP environments and is very easy to control.

    Lots of free templates too on the internet for email designs.

    I use Constant Contact for small lists. For monthly newsletters at Affiliate Crew we use EmailLabs.

    Hi PennyPincher,

    AWeber is the best among those that I have tried, so far.
    Hope that helps

    Remember that any unwanted message is considered spam, even if the recipients opted-in to the list so sending relevant emails will protect your reputation. Keep spam complaints low by sending relevant messages at the right time and by always including an easy opt-out mechanism.

    FYI, the differences between hard and soft bounces:
    Hard Bounces: considered as spam during one week
    Soft Bounces: considered as spam during a few hours.

    Mailchimp is free out of the box, comes with dozens of email templates, has autoresponders, and does everything a mailing list program is supposed to do. There is no reason to not try it.

    Madmimi is new but, great! Google it. I find their prices, interface and delivery rate very good. I am using their services on one of my sites.

    We have a new autoresponder service: MailPush.com

    First month is just US$1, so you can try it out. After the first month it's $19 a month. Email formats and opt in forms are fully-customizable. It's what we recommend to Affilorama members as we can provide full support for it.

    Here's another vote for MailChimp, it's free up to 1000 subscribers, the prices are reasonable if your list is bigger, and it's packed with great features. Here are some great features integrating your newsletters with social media Social Media and Email Marketing, Get Social | MailChimp.com.

    I'm not sure if you are aware, but Aweber got hacked AGAIN back in October. The hacker "initiated" a download of subscribers. No they did not send out an email, but you can check it out on:

    Their website dot com /blog/uncategorized/data-accessed.htm

    You would have to host it on your own servers, which if you get too many spam bounces then they could shut you down. But, it's a super easy way to reach your audience. Until I switched to aMember I used it for my newsletter for years.
