"Aweber is great Bill, but the others work just as well as far as deliverability is concerned. Where it really shines is integrating with 3rd party services like shopping carts. I'd like people to be able to subscribe to a newsletter when they…"
"Aweber doesn't require it, but they have to manually go into your account and make sure they've confirmed when they signed up for your newsletter the first time.
They're very thorough when they do it in order to comply with SPAM laws."
"Yeah - having subscribers reconfirm is a royal pain. But I don't know of any provider that doesn't require it. Otherwise it would be too tempting for those looking for a quick hit to just import a million email names."
"Emily - I moved to Topica from Constant Contact. At the time (approx 6 years ago) Constant Contact was struggling with getting blacklisted often. And they did not seem to be ready to handle lists in excess of 50,000. Unfortunately, Topica promised…"
"There is also MailChimp which I have been messing around with recently.
I also use Aweber and have used iContact in the past. All are about the same in my book. Never had any issues with either of the services."
How did you hear about 48Days.NET, and what do you hope to get out of being a part of this community?
I love Dan's podcast. I constantly use him as a resource for people I counsel in financial crisis who also need to create income, change jobs, or find a strong life focus.
What is your current work situation? Employee, self-employed, generating any income on your own?
I blog, podcast and write to give as much information to as many people as possible to believe it's impossible for them to become debt free. Nothing is impossible and I help them find their best go-forward path.
And then...what is your goal/dream for your work life?
I help as many people as possible become debt free and live their dreams.
How about your personal life? Any specific goals or achievements or dreams you are pursuing (or want to pursue)?
I love to surf, ride horses and walk along the beach listening to inspirational audio books and podcasts.
What would you say are your strongest talents? How are you 'wired' and what can you offer to the world (it's OK if you don't know yet, but knowing is key to pursuing your dreams!)?
Hi Emily. Just read your Potty request post and it gave me an idea. You have a great site and thought you might want to add some personal financial information for your readers. Here is a copy of an ebook I just completed and put up in my subscriber area.
If it fits into what you are trying to provide to your readers, by all means you may offer it to them. I can also write guest articles on personal finances for a link. I would welcome you to also write original 500 word articles on budgeting and saving money from a mom's perspective on my site, which would give you another incoming link.
That's great, an outlet! I am hoping to open a little boutique (one day) and would have liked to place some in my store. I am just starting to do some research, any bit helps! :)
How are you? My name is Michelle and I saved your message from a while back about your friend who bought coach purses and resold them. Does she have a distrubutor that she buys from? I would love more info on how to find such a bargain.
I'll mention that I had a friend who bought 75 Coach handbags and resold them on ebay. I thought she was NUTS (it was her whole minivan full of handbags), but she carefully checked the return policy and could return them within a certain time frame so she essentially had no risk if she kept careful track of the dates.
Hi. Thanks for the comment on my page. A figure competition is a body building competition for people who are not quite that intersted in having huge muscle gains, but still want some defined muscle. That's the best I can describe it in layman's terms.
Your friend sounds like my kind of gal. Very cool. Thanks for sharing that.
