Scott, read both your books and have started to get emails from you. One thing I find curious is that you use BOTH Aweber and Feedblitz, WHY?

One concern is how expensive they get if you get sucessful, you know it may be possible to get a big subscription but a fairly small commitment to purchase straight away.

Also I have read that there can be difficulties leaving these companies and getting your data in such circumstances.

Thanks

David

Hi David,

I use both services because neither is perfect. Aweber has excellent autoresponders (and nice pop-up signup window scripts) while Feedblitz offers much better customization of the individual email templates and signup process.

I am in regular dialogue with the CEOs of both companies prodding them to make changes that I think are important to small business owner/marketers. They are both friendly and responsive but neither system yet offers everything I want in one place unfortunately.

Yes, the costs can add up but even at their higher levels only amount to a few hundred dollars/month for tens of thousands of subscribers. With lists that size hopefully you can convert enough readers into purchasers to more than cover the costs.

There certainly can be difficulties retrieving data from online services companies. I have had none with either Feedblitz or Aweber, however. Their data export processes are pretty transparent and easy to use.

I hope that helps. Thanks for the good question.
