For those who aren’t sure, an autoresponder is a computer program that automatically answers e-mail sent to it.
Anyone who builds an e-mail list needs an autoresponder.
It stores all the emails and you can send bulk messages to your clients.
There are more, but everyone I have ever had dealings with use one of these two.
Aweber offers a basic package of up to 500 subscribers for $19 per month 0-500 subscribers(Free for the first month), $29 for a 501-2500 subscribers and additional increments up to $149 for between 10,001 – 25,000 subscribers.
GetResponse is a bit more complicated as you choose which type of package you want, starting at 1000 subscribers on the smallest package which has a summer sale offer at the time of typing this $12.75 (normally $15)for up to 1000 subscribers, $21.25 (normally $25)for 2500 and then additional increases as your list grows.
I, personally use Aweber and have used it for many years, but other than pricing it is a lot to do with personal preference.
If anyone uses any other and have opinions, then please feel free to share.
