Hello every one. I am starting to see more traffic to my grandparents site and my diabetic site and am considering a newsletter or something. I have been away too long to even know whats good anymore. Are there any suggestions out there on a good autoresponder that isnt too expensive and is easy to use. am in a couple facebook groups and especially the diabetic site I have a ton of people asking me questions. I have been given permission by admin to put my website on there but if I am going to do that I think it would be smart to capture visitors with a monthly newsletter or something like that. Any suggestions from anyone would be great. thank you.

Unbounce is good. Mailchimp seems to be popular

Mailchimp is not affiliate friendly and is known to cancel accounts, Aweber is affiliite friendly

Hi Leo,

Could you elaborate a bit more on what do you mean by "not affiliate friendly"?

I use Aweber, it's very user friendly - and they have great live support and lots of training vidoes - the price starts at $19 per month. They have a 30 day free trial.

Here's a link to the pricing page https://www.aweber.com/pricing.htm

Hope that helps

Hi Dale, I had a list of Subscriber sign up forms and autoresponders to look over. There is a difference between both.

A Subscriber sign up form is for when you publish a post and the subscriber gets it automatically. As often as you set it up.

An autoresponder is where you write up emails and send them.

I'm using Benchmark who has BOTH and it's free. They have a great support system there and tutorials you can watch! There is a paid version but with what I need the free one is great.

I use the Subscriber sign up form, which I personalized to match my website colors. If you want to take a look at it, go to my profile and scroll all the way until you see 'Follow Me On' on the right hand side. You will see it on my website at the top right.

If you scroll down futher on my side bar I have a banner up for Benchmark to check it out.

Good job you said this. I went and looked at yours and it looks great. I think that may be the direction I want to go.

You are welcome, I'm a newbie to this stuff and it was easy.

I spent weeks finding this and checked out many popular ones, mailchimp being one but got lots of negative feedback along with many others, I can't recall now it's been a while.

Most are plugins that you don't want.
This one is NOT a plugin :)

It has a double opt in to protect against fake sign ups and spam!

It's worth taking a look its free anyway.

Bladen - Here is a recent post from Chris Scott regarding Mail Chimp. It's in three parts but it may be helpful. I'm using it and many others here at WA are as well.
