Good post Ryan. When I started my newsletter I looked at both. As you pointed out in your article Aweber gives flexibility with the sign up forms and that was one of the main reasons I went with them. The other reason is Aweber never fails in my experience with delivering emails at the right time. The final point is after you reach a certain level of subscribers the prices are just about the same.

I've really seen an increase in subscriptions since I started with Aweber. It's crazy actually.

I haven't used much in the way of e-mail software since RSS feeds and community e-mails usually do the trick for the sites we run, but I can think of some future applications for a stand-alone e-mail application. I'd love more details on the ease of use of Aweber along the line of the questions Dante's asking.

Heather, the auto-responder features within Aweber are excellent and that is really what I like about it.

You can take your subscribers on a journey without having to come up with new material and without new subscribers missing the old material.

Interesting stuff to think about. I use Mail Chimp but haven't been too happy with it lately. I use the RSS to email function with email scheduled to send once weekly. For some reason lately, it's been sending only on the weeks it feels like it. It goes out some weeks and not others. I don't know what's up with it. I'll have to look into Aweber more.

I like mail chimp and I never took into consideration that the forms could make a difference. Since using mail chimp i have gotten a nice flow of leads but maybe i could get more leads if i used a more customizable form. Is it difficult creating different forms on aweber? Just asking since i don't want to add too many projects on top of the ones i have stacked right now.

Dante,

Actually it's really easy to create forms on Aweber. The quality of your forms means a lot I think. Think about when you visit other sites. If the form looks bush league you're a little more hesitant to stick your email in there, right?
