Email Marketing

What software are you using to collect emails? What email autoresponder are you using?
I'm currently checking out MailPoet. Another WA'er recommended it.
Have you used

No but I needto

I’m using Kartra, which is similar to ClickFunnels. These platforms are much more than an email program. They are a page builder, product, designer, payment processor, and much more. So, they are pretty expensive. I pay about $2000 a year.

Aweber is a pretty good and basic emailer. It is free up to a certain amount of emails before they start charging. I think it is 500 contacts before they start charging. You can create forms, and also sequences.

Thanks for the response, Brad!

Are you doing digital offers? If so, is Kartra handling the whole process? What I mean by that....
1. Have a link in your bio on FB or IG that the visitor clicks on.
2. Go to landing page for offer.
3a. Collects email address for free offer and sends the offer to that address.
3b. handles the payment process and sends the offer.
4. Sends a receipt
5. follow emails

I appreciate your input.
Thanks, Suze

Yup, it does most of that stuff.

I have several email lists in various niches and use ActiveCampaign to manage them all.

Hey Phil... Thanks! I have to look at ActiveCampaign again.

I wonder if it would be easier to use something like ClickFunnels or Syteme.io to do the whole thing. Meaning.... capture the email address, send free offer, process payment for paid offers, and follow up.

I'd appreciate your thoughts.

Thanks!

I have my own procedure for creating a funnel (and a Lead Magnet, for that matter) and would prefer to use it than pay a third-party. It's not difficult once you've done it a couple of times. I do have some training on it.

At one time I created accounts to try them out in:
GetResponse,
MailChimp,
MailPoet,
SendBlue,
MailerLite,
annnnnd AWeber.

WHY so many?

Because the free option is for ONE website only.

Although I tried these out to see which one worked best for me, I chose AWeber for all of my websites.

For me, AWeber was selected due to the ease of use. I pay for the premium service so I can use on multiple websites.

Hey Suzanne,

I find Aweber to be the most reliable.

Though I know many pro IMers prefer GetResponse due to the many options that are provided when setting up a campaign.

Personally, Aweber does all I need it to do, and as long as they keep their helpful support staff, I'll continue using that platform.

Hope you find this helpful.

Thanks, Trish.

Do you do any free offers to gather the email addresses? If so, how do the execute that? Does Aweber help with that?

You're welcome Suzanne,

The free offers we have to create or provide ourselves.

And yes, Aweber will help you setup your email campaign if you cannot find the help you need when searching for it.

If you do decide to create a freebie, do make sure that is it of high value so that it will be more likely shared with others, which then works to expand your audience.

There are loads of courses offered (maybe even check here for training, first) to help you decide on what and how to create your free offer.

Here are a couple tutorials you may find helpful in getting you started: Hope this helps you.

Thanks, Trish!

I recently started using SendFox and I like it so far.

Mailpoet.

Are you currently using it? Do you use it to process digital orders and collect payment?

I'm using Aweber. I'm on their Legacy (grandfathered) program.

How about Aweber? They're free for the first 500 subscribers and affiliate marketing friendly.

I know some use Systeme.io

Yeah this would have been my recommendation. The ones listed above are a bit too "gimmicky" for my liking.

Email Marketing

Is anyone using...
ClickFunnels?
Systeme OI?
Capterra?

Any suggestions?

Are you asking which autoreponder service?
If so, I use MailPoet because all the work can be carried out in the WP dashboard while the mailing is handled through their function (not via your email or the WA server). Also, they allow up to 1000 subscribers and up to 5000 sends per month.
But the reason I started using them is because they provide a facility for automatically emailing subscribers when a new post is published. This function seems to be unique in an autoresponder.
:-)
Richard

Yes, autoresponder. Thanks for the info. :)

Richard, I'm not familiar with MailPoet but I like what you said about them! What do you mean by "allow up to 1000 subscribers nd" ? I'm not sure what the nd is...

Hi Mary
Thanks for pointing out my typo. It's now corrected.
When you ask someone for an email address and they get added to your list then they are deemed to be subscribers to you missives.
Any other questions? Just ask.

I build my own funnels by creating a Lead Magnet and giving it away on my website in exchange for the visitor's name and email address. I use Active Campaign as my autoresponder to store the visitor's details and send them emails and FileZilla to upload the Lead Magnet to a sub-directory on my website for the visitor to download. I have training on all this if you're interested.

I appreciate the info!

The training you are talking about, is that the 5 part series on how to build your email list?

That's part of it. If you do a WA search on "phil1944 lead magnet" you'll find some more.

None of the above.

You may use Aweber which is free for the first 500 subscribers and affiliate marketing friendly.

Thanks!

You're welcome :)

I use Get Response. Depends on your needs as to which one to choose really.

Thanks.

Systeme dot io is what I use

Thank you. That's the one I just started to research.

I'm going to look up the other suggestion above prior to committing.

Is there anything about system.io that you don't like?

I like it because you can stay free until you get over 2k contacts. The only thing, though, is that you have to use API or a code for the form to use in Wordpress.

They don't use Wordpress. All email autoresponders now require you to use your domain email rather than Gmail, Hotmail, or Yahoo. I learned how to use their form to install on my Wordpress. I created a subdomain on my domain and used that as forwarding for the funnel. It works. They recently added API integration, but I'm unsure how that works. I haven't played around with it for Wordpress.

Systems dot io is its entity so most have created another domain to use it rather than using Wordpress. They have a blog that comes with it. I'm not sure how good that is with SEO. I never used that feature. I stick to Wordpress. And use the email form code. They have video instructions inside the platform to show you how to do things inside there and how to do forms with Wordpress.

Thanks for the info...I appreciate all the details.

Sure, you are welcome.
