    Sorry for the delay in answering, you've probably made a choice by now! I'm still on the 1st price tier. For 4000 subscribers, you'd be paying $49 monthly.

    I have heard of other email marketers using Aweber and getresponse... for me i never use aweber before .... so i cant comment on that... what i like for getresponse is that they have 24 hours chat support, you can look for them for help if you encounter any issue.

    and the best thing is that... they have their own getresponse tutorial, where they will teach you how to get your first 1000 subscribers, you just have to learn and apply.

    A bit more difficult, but Interspire also deserves a look.

    Sounds like a great deal. Mailchimp is expensive for big lists, and I was looking at moving to JangoMail because it is only $144 a month for lists up to 100,000 but EmailOctopus sounds better. Will check that out.

    Undoubtedly mailchimp is the best platform for all types of email marketing. I found their user interface that much friendly and you can easily integrate mailchimp with your wordpress or unbounce sites.

    You know sometimes it depends on the subject and the content of the email you send.
    Besides people nowadays are able to block or filter the emails that they don't want to receive.

    All the service from smtp is great infact, the main thing is contrast in pricings and pace of email portion every hour. On the off chance that your campaigns are okay and you are 10/10 from spam hassasin your inbox conveyance could be great notwithstanding for your limited time focusing on. in the event that you have optin subscribers and afterward all your DKIM marked, SPF records checked then its 99% inbox impact will be finished.

    Some time ago I had the same question and found my answer. I think, if I’ll share the direct link it’ll be more like the promotion. The way out - is this cool article - “No more monkey business” - http://lab.getapp.com/no-more-monkey-business-6-alternatives-to-mailchimp/.
    You’ll find 6 most awesome alternatives to Mailchimp. And I’m using one of them! Take care!

    No matter how big your list is you can't go cheap. It's important that you emails hit the inbox and not the spam box. A part of that comes from you in the form of your Title, Body, pictures, etc. The other part comes from the reputation of you email provider. Be sure to "SEGMENT" your list so that you send more emails to your openers, that will help you get in-boxed more. Segmenting is very important. I segment into non openers, openers, buyers

    Can someone tell me why - while using free MailChimp with 420 addresses to send to - I only get 42% openings ? This is really NO good at all and destroys our communication with our members !

    Color me clueless. What is the benefit of SendGrid over, say, MailChimp? I know MailChimp allow me to see the social profiles of the subscribers, gets past the spam filters most of the time, and is easily managed. But MailChimp has its kinks, so I was looking at self-hosted solutions. But then sending from a dedicated server isn't the best when it comes to getting past spam filters, so ...

    InterSpire on my server, but actually sending the email through InterSpire? That seems like half-way back to MailChimp, no?
