    I manage email marketing for several clients. Constant Contact is good for the clients who do not want a custom template and need an easy to use template editing and sending platform. My Mail Chimp clients are ones who like an extremely customized template – they tend to be a little more tech savvy then the Constant Contact crowd. My self and two other clients are then on e-blasting.com because we like to do texting along side our email marketing. So each platform does have a specific demographic.

    I only have experience with Aweber and Mailchimp. I use Mailchimp on quite a few of my websites–haven’t had a problem with them yet, so they get my vote.

    Was trying to make my first mailing list. Was searching for aweber alternatives and found your post, Harsh :)

    Seems like people are recommending Mailchimp. I might give it a go :)

    I vouch for Mail Chimp, they have great features for the price of zero, up to 500 subs. Which for smaller marketers is plenty.

    But will also look into Get Response as I have a tiny (but profitable) list I can probably use them for.

    Cheers,
    Myra

    I consider Mailchimp as a good alternative for Aweber for it is free of charge to get a 0- 500 subscribers. But it is not a bad idea shifting to Aweber if you already have lots of profits to gain, it may be expensive but it is worth the cost.

    I know people who use these 4 and are happy. However, we wanted an integrated shopping cart and markerting email platform. We finally settle on redoakcart.com. If you want more than just email, you should check them out.

    I am using Aweber from the last 5 years and I have used GetResponse as well. I have not used other 2 services but I thing Aweber is the best with more than 99% delivery rate and so many great features.
    I admit Aweber is expensive than other services but if the subscriber list will grow, you will find Aweber is best.
    Just imagine you have got a subscriber lis of 25,000 and if you consider only 5 more conversions with the same list using Aweber as compare to others will be more profitable and I know this happens.
    You can also use Aweber as a replacement of feedburner and broadcast your articles in twitetr and facebook which you can’t use in other services.

    I’m using AWeber and I’m very satisfied, been using them for years. I agree with your list, although I don’t know much about Campaigner, and would probably add iContact instead (if it was my list).

    I started using mail chimp a couple of months back and I love it. So easy to use and it is still free for me for now. I am close to breaking the 500 subscriber mark but not there quite yet. I think I will continue with them even when I have to start paying.

    Hi Sagar

    Before reading this article, I only knew Mailchimp & Aweber. I was looking for an alternative. Thanks for the information ..

    What about Feedblitz ??

    • Sagar Rai

      First thing, thanks for the appreciation.

      Secondly I had never heard about feedblitz before, otherwise I would have mentioned it on my article

    Nice :-) , but it should be like ” 4 cheaper Aweber Alternative for email marketing” because being cheaper to any other product dose not make you a best alternative. Aweber is by far the best in the business.

    Good price comparison up there.

    Is there any services available by which we can send 100K emails. Cant we send emails from our server?

    Reply
    • Sagar Rai

      To send 100k email at once, you can use Aweber and any of the 4 alternatives that mentioned above. Go to their respective homepage and click PRICING to see their charges for 100k emails.

      And you can’t send 100k from your cpanel due to bandwidth limitation. Yes you can send few emails but not in 100k’s…. If that was possible almost everyone would have done the same instead of paying for any of the services mentioned above.

    Hi Sagar

    Thanks for sharing this info. email marketing is certainly very useful and powerful for affiliate marketing.

    You mention that Get Response is free for 100 subscribers. I thought they are free for only 10 subscribers and after that you have to convert to their $9.95 plan. Correct me if I am wrong…

    • Sagar Rai

      Hello Sammy,

      I just cross checked GetResponse pricing and what ever I mentioned is proper. They offer FREE services for 0 – 100 subscribers.

      You can check rates on their site http://www.getresponse.com/pricing

    Sagar,

    Great Post. These are great alternatives. I’m using Mailchimp on one of my blog and it works awesome.

    Another great alternative is icontact.

    Thanks for sharing this great Post.

    • Sagar Rai

      Thank Deevesh .

      BTW icontact is also a good alternative since my article covered only 4 best alternatives, I couldn’t mention about icontant. Otherwise icontact, vertical response are also best ones.

    Since I can’t edit my last comment, I also was curious if the delivery rate is as good for Mail Chimp and Get Response. I know Aweber is godly when it comes to delivery rate.

    Reply
    • Sagar Rai

      Mailchimp is a perfect alternative for Aweber. And best part of Mailchimp is they charge FREE for 0 – 500 subscribers .

      So you can register and try their service and if you are satisfied you can continue their paid service.

      Blake, i use mailchimp and usually get a 99% delivery rate when i use their inbox inspector tools. They have numerous tools that help get your emails into the inbox of your subscribers. [mailchimp is perfect if you dont plan on sending 100 emails per day]

      When they released their free plan i did get abit worried the delivery rate might go down due to spammers abusing their system, however it hasnt seemed to ruin it.

      Would love to say the same about Get Response, but too be honest – i have never used them.

      Reply
  • Blake @ Props Blog

    I ended up canceling my aweber because I wasn’t using it much and my blog went idle. I lost about 30 subscribers because it didn’t make sense to keep paying for a service I wasn’t using.

    I’ve picked up some free time to start blogging again, and I want to get my mailing list going. MailChimp and Get Response both look like good ones since I don’t really want to pay for anything if I’m not using it (and under 100 subscribers, I’m probably not using it)

    Do you know if either of them have a max for the number of subscribers?
