This Post Reviews Autoresponders
When it comes to choosing the autoresponder you need for your online marketing
Then there is no doubt, you will be dazzled by choice.
There are dozens of them, each claiming to have better features than the others
In case you don’t know what an autoresponder is, this post explains it
So which do you choose. How do you choose it
This post reviews the top 4autoresponders so you can choose the best fit for your business
It Should be noted however, that there is one over riding factor to be taken into consideration when choosing the one you want
It should have a compensation plan, which will provide you with an income
The reason for this is because, even when your business is experiencing hard times
You still need an income.
So lets look at Autoresponders in a bit more detail
Is probably the best known of all the companies. Started in 1998, it is still around today
This is without doubt the best autoresponder on the market place
Offering a 30 day free trial so you can test it out, you then pay $19.95 per month, up to your first 1,000 Subscribers
Aweber, also has an affiliate venture atatched to it, which pays you for referring others.
You can find out more about the affiliate venture here
So for each referral you get, you get 30% commission, for as long as they remain a user of the service.
It is compatible with WordPress
AWeber is keen on and encourages affiliate marketers to join their service
TrafficWave is the cheaper version of AWeber, and was set up in 2000 by Brian Rooney
Initially an AWeber user, he became frustrated by the Terms of Service.
So he set up his own brand, based on Aweber, but called TrafficWave
It is aimed mainly for independent business owners, both on and offline
It is compatible with WordPress, but lacks a lot of the functions AWeber has
TrafficWave offers a 30 Day Free Trial, thereafter its $17.95 Per Month flat rate fee
It has an affiliate payplan, as well which is based on a matrix structure.
If you don’t know what a Matrix Structure is, All will be revealed in a later post
So while its built to provide a recurring income monthly, the commission payments are small by comparison
You would need an awful lot of work to earn any decent income from it
3. Get Response
Like AWeber they have been around a while
They offer a 30 day Free Trial, after that you pay $15 for the first 1,000 Subscribers
However, like AWeber, their pricing jumps steeply when you get to 1,0001 subscribers
Then you pay $49 per month
It is compatible with WordPress and has an affiliate plan, which has two parts
The first part is the Bounty Programme, which pays $100 one off payment
The Second Part is the Recurring programme which pays 33% of the monthly autoresponder Fee
Mailchimp was considered the go to brand for business owners
Lots of them use it and it has a lot of benefits, unlike a lot of other Autoresponder Providers
However, the very major downside to it is that it is incredibly difficult to work out
With every update they bring out, it becomes more difficult to use
There is no affiliate pay plan with it.
The Money Is In The List
But what you have to remember is this
The Money Is In The List
While its true the money is in the list of customers you gather
Your business needs a degree of business insurance and income protection
Now all the above autoresponders are good. All serve a purpose
However for pure ease of Use, Excellent customer service and integrations
Then AWeber wins my vote hands down.
