Aweber vs. Icontact

People often ask, what’s the best autoresponder to use for my online business.  And the answer might come as a surprise to you.

Because both and have industry leading delivery rates so either way you ultimately decide is totally up to you.  However there is one distinct difference between the two that has swayed the vote for many industry leading guru’s.

The feature I’m talking about, is that Aweber Requires you to have all your subscribers “double opt in” to your list before you can begin emailing them.  Which is a good thing because it ensures that your email list “actually wants to hear from you” and is highly qualified and engaged.

Icontact on the other hand is more flexible and allows users to upload bulk email lists from excel or other databases without having to double opt-in your contacts like with Aweber.  This means that you can easily transfer your current social media network or webinar signups to your Icontact account to build your list.  The key obviosuly is to send high quality relevant videos, tips, & shortcuts to help them get more results in their business.

This little tip is actually part of an 8 Part webinar formula called the “Webinar Launch Pad.”  It’s a new training program that I’ve been working on and If you’re interested in learning more advanced ways to leverage social meda to grow your network and build your list then go ahead and click here to subscribe to the waiting list to be notified when the training will be avail.

Until next time Stay Inspired,

    Hey Gabe good tips.  However I am not sure which is the better option?  Aweber with its more restrictive processes or Icontact.  I still do not have an email list.

    So, Gabe ~ Which one do you recommend? I understand the difference but what if I’m not experienced enough to  choose? Hypothetically speaking of course…

    All in all, I’d say go with Icontact for the main reason that you can import leads from Webinars etc into their system without having to double opt in.
