The past couple months I have been thoroughly testing the different email marketing software’s (autoresponders) out there.
I’ve been changing my business plan to focus more on building my lists rather than focusing on my SEO sites. There’s just so much more money in list building than I could have ever imagined.
But, I’ve always wanted to know what the differences were between GetResponse and Aweber before I get to far with my list building. I needed to make sure that I personally knew what the differences were between the two auto-responders, and that I was using the best one for my needs.
I currently have a paid account with GetResponse and Aweber. What?
The free trial periods weren’t long enough time for me to fully test everything, but I do know what my final choice will be once the subscriptions are up. More on that later.
However, you can try GetResponse for FREE for 30 days.
Or test drive Aweber for 30 days for only $1.
Then let me know what you think of the 2 if you do try both of them out.
Why do Internet Marketers All use Aweber and Get Response?
Just about every optin-form, software, or platform out there all recognize aweber and getresponse. And allow you to instantly plug into your accounts. So this is definitely the main reason why I wouldn’t even consider using anything else, long term.
Plus the quality and features they both offer are specific for marketers, whether you’re a business owner or Internet Marketing hustler.
There are cheaper alternatives out there, but they aren’t worth it in the long run if you’re online to make life changing money.
Key Differences Between Aweber and GetResponse
I’m not going into detail about all there features or options, just the main differences between the 2.
They both had excellent support, all the latest features, and an excellent delivery rate.
But here’s the major differences that I noticed.
Aweber – Currently the #1 email marketing software of choice for marketers
- Pricing – $19 per month for up to 500 subscribers list
- free trial – $1 for 30 days
- very easy to setup – everything is laid out pretty much step-by-step. Their tutorials are so easy to follow and they have a setup wizard that guides you.
- free hosted optins – cool little feature where Aweber will host your optin forms on their hosting so you don’t even need a website essentially to capture leads.
- guaranteed 30 day refund if you aren’t 100% satisfied
GetResponse – Currently the 2nd most popular email marketing software
- Pricing – $15 per month for up to 1000 subscribers
- free trial – completely free to try for 30 days
- landing page creator – this was actually the main reason why I paid for a Getresponse account. It’s a great feature, but it’s Not 100% customizable without touching the coding. It does have a feature to publish it on Facebook with one click, too.
- email creator – easily customize email newsletters
- free stock images for you to use
- NO Refund Policy whatsoever!
- Cancel your subscription and instantly your account is closed, even if you just paid for the entire month
There you have it.
And the winner is…..
What’s my choice to use for long term once my 2 subscriptions are over?
It’s a “no-brainer”, it has to be Aweber.
They are easier to use, and everything I’ve purchased so far that plug into my auto responders all advised me to use, you guessed it, Aweber.
