I am about to pick some autoresponder for my projects... Basically I came to choose between GetResponse and Aweber because they seem to offer best integration (at least with ventures I choosed) but I have a few questions/ideas (not necessarily connected to these specific) before final decision.

 

1. What the actual difference between autoresponder and newsletter in such services? Seriously, it seem like both offer to select the delay in sending but I don't see anything that would differ those two terms...

 

2. Is it possible to set up some campaign based variables in those services? For instance I'd like to put some urls into variable that I could update whenever I want without going through the whole campaign... In GetResponse it seems like custom fields are always connected with contacts and the support suggest to create it and update API requests to set the same value for all new prospects... that's not too effective. How about AWeber?

 

3. Is it possible to set an automated migration of prospect between lists? I'd like to set a "venture based" series of emails that would last for, let's say, a month but I can assume that someone after this time won't signup for that specific venture. On the other hand I'd like to have a "default" list for all the prospects from such timed campaigns so I'd like to set a rule that after X days in campaign/list A is moved to campaign/list B. Is it possible from the panel of these services? 

 

4. Can I easily import/export whole campaign with all the emails assigned to it in case I'd like to move from one autoresponder to another? In "perfect world" I shouldn't need it but just in case I'd like to have an option...

I think, the best option would be to try both and see which one you are most comfortable with.

 

Additionally, you can always try a google search comparing both for their features, pros and cons. 

 

I found a couple of recent articles here:

Hope this helps :)

I already have trial at GetResponse (that why I asked about those variables) but AWeber requires me to enter my card details to sign up for trial which not something I'm very comfortable with... :)

I tried both getresponse and aweber in the past and decided to go for something entirely different. Although, the integration features probably would be a very strong point for both, specially if you use jvzoo for your own products or Udimi. In this case, maybe get response would be a better alternative, but thats just my opinion as regarding these 2 autoresponders.

Udimi is totally different subject as I cannot register there for some reason... Could you send a help request to them for me? :)

I recommend Traffic Wave.  You not only make a great monthly residual income that increases as your team grows, but you also get 100% Fast Track bonus when someone joins you and pays - you get the entire $17.95 back once - Paid Weekly.  Only takes 3 members to cover your monthly fee.

 

You can transfer your prospects to another campaign when it is finished automatically (called "chaining").

 

You can use your autoresponder to send Newsletter emails with Topics, pointing to a blog or website link.

 

You can enter variables, e.g. several links in the campaign, called ":tokens" - as many as you want, e.g. token

for you Blog link,website link, etc.

 

You can create a New Campaign and copy the letters to it from another campaign easily.

 

Hope this helps.

I use the autorespondor at Easy business Builder. It was easy to build and is working nicely. EBB allows multiple responders. There are also other tools to use. it is free to looks around. then you time when you want to upgrade etc. pays commission too.  http://ebbt.us/bFinKo is my capture page I built with EBB

If you are still trying to decide between Aweber and Get Response. I did a lot of research on the two and there are good articles out there. The reason I finally chose Get Response it was because they have a bit of a technological edge and slightly better pricing.

I know of a pretty big player within the CPA world and he strongly supports AWeber...

 

I have only used Get Response in the past with some Udimi ads but have left that account dormant for over two years.

 

Think I am going to start building a new list with AWeber this time around.

I'm not sure if this is still the case, but I've heard of a lot of affiliate marketers who got their accounts closed at Aweber, if you plan to send a lot of mail to people frequently promoting affiliate offers then it is kind of risky to use Aweber.

Darren is this something you have simply heard over time through the ether? I am curious as I really want to aggressively start growing my list.

 

Also, I have had someone tell me you yourself use two autoresponders with one of your lists going over 80,000 subscribers. 

 

Can I ask you what list building course or guru you recommend for a newbie such as myself, so I can really start getting educated along my journey?

Yes from time to time people have said they have lost their Aweber accounts, these were people with large lists who sent very frequently, like daily or multiple times per day to their list.

 

I'm not too afraid of getting my account closed because I send very rarely, maybe two or three times per month to my list.

 

You should be able to pick everything (as far as knowledge goes) up for free, or use some system that integrates with the major autoresponders to help build your list.. the basic strategy is just to provide something of value for free to get their email.
