MailChimp Booted me!

Last Update: Sep 17, 2016


I've been moving along, my site has been up for about 21 days. My first google analytics showed me 350 unique vistors already, I've gotten 2 referrals, 1 upgraded to premium so I wanted to start building a mailing list. I have some friends that I put into the MailChimp list because I asked them if it was OK. Then I composed an email and in it I directed them to one of my posts on my site, specifically Before I know it I receive this message from them

Hello Dennis,

MailChimp is not able to serve as the email provider for your account with the username, because the content associated with your industry conflicts with our Acceptable Use Policy

Now thats a fine how do ya do!!!!!!!

I sent back a message to their compliance dept and it is because I have affiliate links on my site!

Just when I thought I was cruisin along good.

Before I go and set up with another email deal does anyone have any recommendations as to what service will work for our industry?

Share n share alike! Makes the runaro


I use Aweber, works great


I'm afraid that AR's don't really like IM folk, the make money niche... Lol, I've known a lot of big guys get kicked out of aweber, that's why I changed to get response, they are little more lenient.. Or ebizace.

Tanks in will give them a look also. Do either one have a free startup?

Yes gr is one month free

Aweber would be a better choice :)


Wow that is annoying, I'm with Mail chimp as well, but I have not finished setting it up to my WA sites that have affiliate links on, only with my e-commerce site

I will see how it goes, thanks

GOOD LUCK try not mentioning affiliate marketing or work from home or anything like that in your emails that go out from them!

Thanks, I will keep that in mind

Thanks for sharing this little hiccup you had with us Dennis. Hopefully you are able to get it all sorted out soon :)

I believe I will try Aweber out!.

I use Aweber too. have been for 18 months.


Yes, I would agree. When I was in another affiliate program, everyone used Aweber.

Do not loose hope. I feel Aweber is a better platform anyway :)

Thanks I'm gonna give it a try, I hear they have a free month tryout

Yes, I second what Tim says - Aweber is the go!

Thanks for checkin my blog post out!
