  1. IMO Ali was spot on with her recommendation of AWeber. I used Constant Contact for several years and never could seem to get the results I was looking for. So I decided to switch to AWeber. Lost 60% of my subscribers in the confirmation process required by Aweber. 15 months later my subscriber list is 300% larger than when I was with Constant Contact. It would be even larger except I scrub the list every 3 months for inactive subscribers.
