Hello Aayush Bhaskar
Great article. I am a newbie and just started as a marketer. I have a question about which one should I choose. Convertkit was my favorite, it clean and easy UI but I can’t afford it because it was expensive. Mailerlite was good, easy to use, and also cheaper but the problem is they not allowed affiliate marketing. So in my mind now between Aweber and Getresponse. I know you’re using Getresponse now but I need your opinion about AWeber. Have you used AWeber before? How do you think? And how about deliverability on AWeber compared to Getresponse?
I’ve used Aweber as well as ConvertKit and you’re right, I’m using GetResponse as of now.
If your sole purpose is affiliate marketing, Aweber is probably the email marketing service for you. It has all the necessary features, costs much lesser than ConvertKit and has all the advanced automation. And it certainly has better deliverability, no doubt about it.
Hi Aayush Bhaskar
Yes, my sole purpose is focus on affiliate marketing. I’try it out soon. Thank you & Happy New Year. Wishing you more success & happiness.
