Top Email Marketing Solutions Compared

How To Choose The Best Email Marketing Solution

A Comparison Of The Top Three Email Marketing Solutions: AWeber, iContact, Constant Contact

Part Five: Head-To-Head Comparison

AWeber Email Marketing iContact Email Marketing Constant Contact Email Marketing

Now you have seen each of the top three email marketing services rated individually. In this fifth and final article of the series, you will now see them compared head-to-head.

AWeber and Constant Contact were founded in 1998, and iContact is the relative newcomer, being founded in 2003.

Constant Contact and iContact boast more customers than AWeber. This is mainly because until recently, both of those services were significantly cheaper than AWeber for larger subscriber bases. Both of these companies have increased their prices, and now all three services are very similarly priced for any sized email list.

How will this head-to-head comparison be rated? For each of the four primary categories, a numerical rating from 1 to 10 will be assigned. 10 represents the best quality. The composite rating will be most heavily weighted towards deliverability. Tracking, customer support, and additional features will be approximately equal weights.

Why You Need a Web Host With “Gold” Customer Service

The standard of customer service is not at the forefront of many people’s minds when they are considering which web host it is that they want to go with. This is hardly a surprise, for 2 reasons:

Customer Service – A Dirty Phrase or a Web Hosting Must Have?

But it doesn’t have to be that way, in fact web hosting customer support services can actually be a very useful tool for you to use.

Reputation is Key When Choosing a Web Host

When you are trusting a web hosting company to host your websites online you need to be sure about them. You need to know that they won’t spend huge amounts of time offline and that they won’t screw you over if you need to grow your website.

The problem with many of the smaller companies is finding anyone who has used them for them to actually have a reputation (ignore any claims made by the company itself). And the problem with the big companies is both the sheer amount of presence they have all over and the few disgruntled customers making a lot of noise (any service, no matter how great, will have a few unhappy customers).

Switching Web Hosts with Zero Downtime

The one thing many webmasters and individuals dislike about web hosting is the process of switching web hosts, especially when it needs to be done for a couple dozen sites if not hundreds.
