What Service Do You Use For Your Email List?

I was just over at Lynne's awesome discussion thread HERE and started to ponder what you all are using for your email list service. You know, to send newsletters out to your customers: Mailchimp, etc..

If you don't mind sharing..

1.) What software or online service do you use?

2.) How many subscribers do you have?

3.) How do you collect your subscribers?

4.) How often and to whom do you send emails?

5.) How much does it cost per month?

6.) What are some of the features that you can't live without?


Anything that's TMI, just skip. I realize that not everyone likes sharing info such as how much they pay for stuff and how many subs they've got. No biggy! I'm just interested to see what everyone's using, and why. What Service Do You Use For Your Email List?

1.) What software or online service do you use?

I am using aWeber and I am very happy with them What Service Do You Use For Your Email List?

2.) How many subscribers do you have?

I few hundred for my online marketing website and a few thousand for my mommy blog.

3.) How do you collect your subscribers?

On my mommy blog mostly through competitions and I have a sign up form on my website. My online marketing website I have an ebook I wrote that I use to entice my readers to sign up. I give it as a free gift.

4.) How often and to whom do you send emails?

Well whenever I publish a post it gets sent out to my newsletter lists automatically... on my online marketing website I try and publish 2-3 posts a week and on my mommy blog I try and post weekly, but I am trying to up my posting schedule.

Then I have a newsletter series that goes out to my online marketing website subscribers. I have this set to weekly intervals.

5.) How much does it cost per month?

I currently pay $29 a month for my email autoresponder

6.) What are some of the features that you can't live without?

I love everything about it actually. I love the fact that every time I publish new content it sends it out to my subscribers without me havingt to do a thing. I also love the newsletter series because by putting in a bit of effort initially I can stay in contact with my readers and keep pulling them back to my website. I also love all the tutorials aWeber has, and the support is great.

Oh and I really don't mind all the questionsWhat Service Do You Use For Your Email List? This is an awesome discussion and I am really looking forward to what everyone else says here. I know I need to spend a little more time on my email series, I need to add some more emails in and I also want to fine tune my messages.

I love all the great reporting features that aWeber has, I can see clearly at a glance which newsletters have the highest open rates, the highest click throughs and the most unsubscribes so I know where I can get started with working on things.

I just signed up to mailchimp (free version) about a couple of days ago. I am also looking at my mail because it was a recommendation from a friend, I haven't looked yet but as I understand it has a WordPress plugin. This could make things easier. My brother in-law is a network engineer, both Microsoft and Cisco certification and offered to share with me some recommendations of what big clients are using like Coca-Cola and IBM. I am not sure that I need a super robust platform like this but it is good to know what is available so you can make an educated decision when ready to choose a platform or if you need to upgrade. I am interested to hear what everyone is using because I am a novice here.

Ohh, please make a post when you've gotten into Mailchimp enough to share your experience! I've looked into this one for myself, but it's not affordable for my size of email list. I wonder if I could do a mini list that's just a section of my current list with Mailchimp.
