Get Response, Awebber or Bulk Email Sender?
Ide like to make this very clear from the start; this review is based on my personal opinion and experience; I do not intend to go into the tinyist detail surrounding each option; instead I will get straight to the point.
I have subscribed to both Awebber and Get Response for several years and have found that both offer a very high degree of efficiency and ease of use.
Both have great tutorials and are easy to understand and use; the data capture forms are easy to create and integrate in to most other web applications, and if you are simply looking to build email lists and create follow-up autoresponders, newsletters and analyise your subscribers activities accurately, again, both offer great flexibility.
Both offer a FREE 30-day trial and the price-points for subscriber lists up to 5,000 subscribers are very similar; however for list sizes above 5,000 the price point jumps considerably.
If you have a list larger than 100,000 subscribers, you can get a quotation from Getresponse. In addition, there are separate pricing plans for not-for-profit organisations, however you must contact Getresponse directly to discuss your specific requirements.
There are 4 x basic 'Customizable' plans to choose from, and each plan is completely customizable depending upon the number of subscribers you have on your lists, and provides Many additional features.
The key differences between the Getresponse plans involve the addition of landing pages and webinars as you go up the pricing structure. However, when comparing Aweber and Getresponse, the Getresponse 'Email' plans are the ones to focus on as they are very similar in nature to the plans provided by Aweber.
Therefore, if we focus on a subscriber list of up to 5,000 in number, Get Response have the edge; if you are looking to build a larger list and employ additional staff to run the subscriber campaigns, Get Response again has the edge.
For sheer 'add-On' flexibility and features; again Get Response wins in my opinion.
So why choose Awebber? Well quite simply, Awebber is a little quicker to implement and integrate into some marketing platforms than Get Response. But there really is very little in it. For example some customizable 'splash-pages' do not accept Get Response, this is really down to the authors of those pages and is no more than a reflection of popularity.
Awebber is best suited in my opinion, to the small to medium sized business where customising to the nth degree is not required.
Ultimately its your choice; so have a look at each of their promo videos to get a 'flavor' for yourself.
