Email Marketing Review: AWeber vs Constant Contact?
In this article, we consider AWeber vs Constant Contact – Which is the best email marketing service for your situation?
Jerry, I really appreciate your insights on all things money. I am in the process of creating multiple streams of income (like you recommend in your Five Levels of Financial Freedom) and have decided to begin creating my first website. My site will be health-related and I will be promoting an affiliate program with an Indian Herbal store that pays lifetime commissions. My question is regarding which email marketing service to use for collecting email addresses and sending email newsletters. The two services that I have narrowed it down to are: Constant Contact and AWeber. What say you?
Thanks for all that you do!

Congratulations on taking the dive into the world of internet marketing, Helen. There is much to learn. (Trust me, I have been doing this for over 12 years and I am still learning something new everyday!) Good job on picking your niche in a health-related area. As I have been telling my clients for years, alternative health continues to be one of the most lucrative and exciting areas for internet marketers today.
You are now at the place that many new internet marketers find themselves after selecting their niche, and building their first website. That is, deciding upon the best email marketing service. In your case, AWeber vs Constant Contact.
I have been making money online since 1999 and have used many of the various email marketing services over the years. I have discovered that, in my case, which service you eventually select should be determined on your own situation.
One of the very first email services that I began using early in my internet marketing was AWeber. I needed an excellent autoresponder service and AWeber did not let me down.
Eventually, however, I ended up at Constant Contact as it better suited my needs. While I still have an AWeber account and use it often, I rely upon Constant Contact for the majority of my email campaigns.
Below, I have listed some basic facts on the differences between AWeber and Constant Contact.
|Monthly Cost||Starts at $19||Starts at $15|
|Free Trial||Yes, a 30 day free trial||60 day free trial|
|Free Email Templates||400+||150|
|Social Media Integration||Yes||Yes|
|Customer Support||Phone, Email, Live Online Chat||Phone, Email, Live Online Chat|
|Website||Visit Aweber’s Website||Visit Constant Contact’s Website|
Helen, I hope this helps. If you have any further questions, please don’t hesitate to send them to me. Good luck to you and your new online venture. Please do keep us posted on how it is going!
Blessings to you!
