I’ve been using both of these email marketing platforms for several months now in order to see firsthand which one is better than the other. I feel like I now know how everything works in both of these programs.
The first reason Aweber is better than GetResponse is because of its email delivery rate. Aweber has the best email delivery rate in the market that I’ve encountered so far. What does this mean? It means that Aweber emails make it to your subscriber’s inbox more often. They are less likely to get filtered,bounce or go to spam. Better delivery rates lead to better open rates. The more your emails are opened,the more likely you will make some money out of your offers.
Another reason Aweber is better than GetResponse is because you can easily import lists. These imported lists can usually have lower spam rates. You do need to do everything right and legally though. You must have permission somewhere previously to email your uploaded list otherwise,you are just spamming people and Aweber will not let you do that.
My final reason that Aweber is better than GetResponse is that Aweber has fast email delivery. Often within 5 seconds of sending it,the email gets delivered. Sometimes with GetResponse,it can take as long as 5 minutes to actually send the email.
These are 3 quick reasons why I feel that Aweber is a better fit for your email marketing needs than GetResponse. Read mysite here. In that post,I go a little deeper into why I think Aweber is a good fit for most but more importantly,I explain why it might not be a good fit for you depending on what type of business you are trying to run.
