Why internet marketers have email deliverability problems

There is a tendency in high end marketing circles to get inspired about spending about $1000+ /month for email autoresponder services. Usual selling point of these services is higher (albeit unproved) deliverability of emails and better tracking. I personally think that “tracking” is a great marketing trick as it is relatively easy to convince any business owner that his business is not that great (or not as great as could be) because he does not have enough tracking bells and whistles.

Last week I personally been through 3 sales pitches based on this. But that’s another story.

It is a bit of a problem indeed if you have 5,000-10,000 emails list and only half of them reach destination during your next affiliate pimping campaign.

Now here’s what happening. I use gmail and getting pretty much zero spams per day. One of my lists has about 30% of email from gmail. Once in a while during the coffee break I check my spam folder.

And here’s the picture.

Besides exciting viagra, porn, casinos and replica offers – I see oh-so familiar names of internet marketers I subscribed to.

Aweber vs 1ShoppingCart vs GetResponse – autoresponders comparison

I was searching for the best autoresponder to use for business and as many of us do – went to Google to search for unbiased opinions, reviews and experiences. The quest was a bit time consuming – Google still has a work to do eliminating useless spam and zero-value pages from their index. Until they do – we – the searchers has to do it ourselves. So I did it and filtered through the content of all these results to make the final choice.

My research might save you time if you’re after similar task.

I already have basic shopping cart account with 1ShoppingCart and they also offer autoresponder at extra monthly cost. Another contender is AWeber. I also found quite a few people using GetResponse. I wanted to find which one is the best and whether I might be missing other choices in this area.

Choosing the right autoresponder is VERY important as the task of moving away from it later on could mean serious loss of established business (old list members refuse to re-optin).

I decided to search for reasonably fresh pages – dated less than 1 yr old. I wanted to find decentĀ  reviews/comparisons/articles regarding choosing the right autoresponder.

So here I just list the reasonably decent posts I found and at the end summarize my choice. […]
