Building an Email List

Every online marketer should be building an email list.  Whether you are operating an ecommerce store, blogging, publishing Kindle books, affiliate marketing, or anything else.

Providing you treat your list with respect, it can build up to be a hugely valuable asset.  Even a small list is worth having 🙂

To build a list you need an autoresponder so that can collect subscribers and automatically send emails and newsletters to them.  It’s impossible to do this without an autoresponder of some kind.

Not all autoresponders are created equally and some of them have very poor delivery rates.  I have been using Aweber since 2006. So more than 10 years now.  I’ve tried others too, but prefer Aweber for ease of use and features. It’s also still the most popular choice among professional online marketers.

The cost is $19.95 per month with a 30 day trial for $1.  Click Here to sign up for the trial

Another option is MailChimp which is free for the first 2000 subscribers and has a good reputation too. I did try MailChimp at one time, but found it less user friendly. One thing to bear in mind about MailChimp is that it has some restrictions.  There are certain niches that are not accepted.
