What is the best platform for email marketing?

    I have been using MailChimp for quite a while, but there are many things I am unhappy about and was wondering what are you experiences with different platforms?
    which one is the best to ensure emails/newsletters land in inbox? which one is the cheapest option if I need to maintain a big database of clients?
    SEMrush
    Thanks for your help!

    Why not aweber or trafficwave? Trafficwave has got one heck of an affiliate opportunity for no additional cost. They are double opt in but I'll show you how to get 95% plus confirm rate.

    These 2 do seem to be quite popular, but maybe you happen to know some cheaper options?

    I have tried both MadMimi and Mailchimp free versions, but recently bit the bullet and went with Aweber. SO much better and worth every penny in my view. You can try Aweber free for a month, which is what I did before I committed.

    Thanks! May I ask for how many contacts do you use Aweber? I think I would need it for roughly 4000, that's why I am so obssessed with finding a cheap soultion :)

    We use professional autoresponders and some free autoresponders.
    My opinion for paid autoresponder is => listbuilderdirect .com (we use it since a long time, $10 per month only with ALL INCLUSIVE)

    Free autoresponders => listwire .com / freefollowup .com

    You could try Mandrill, this would allow you to use their API to integrate the mail delivery into any current application you have.

    You can try getresponse for 30 days also. I wish I could suggest one over the other but I cannot. I will add that I've worked in aweber, mailchimp and getresponse setting up a few mobile campaigns and getresponse was very easy to use.

    Interspire + third-party email relay ( like sendgrid, Mandrill ) works just good. I have also seen people using MailWhizz.

    We use mail chimp, however, some of our clients do not like the name as it may be considered offensive. So we now use vertical response

    I'm trying to put myself in the shoes of someone offended by Mail Chimp and doing my very best to even make up a reason! I mean what has to go through your mind to even express this concern? The closest I got was someone feeling hurt that their pet chimp could possibly been as stupid. I don't know.
