    Default Best email campaign management?

    I am in charge of an affiliate program for an interesting, non-gaming product. In order to find new potential affiliates, I have been checking out product-related websites and have built an email list containing app. 25.000 domains and email addresses. Obviously, none of those are subscribers (yet). I have been using Sendblaster for mass-emailing before, but for this project I think it might be better to use a service like Aweber.

    I'd like to hear suggestions about alternatives - if you have used a specific service, a brief summary of your experience would be appreciated!

    When it comes to affiliate marketing, AWeber and GetResponse seem to be the best two programs, because both allow affiliate marketing (Mailchimp for example, is not for affiliate marketers).

    But both programs won't allow you to import your scraped email-addresses. So you might want to use Sendblaster and ask your "list" to subscribe to your AWeber / GetResponse list.

    I've been using AWeber for a while now. It seems that they have good delivery rates, and it's very stable. But the backend for designing emails and especially the stats backend is horrible, it like it was programmed in 1998 and has a very limited funcitonality.

    Wasn't aware of that - thanks for the info. Looks like I will have to stick with Sendblaster then.

    Any legit email newsletter service wouldn't allow you to do that Because there would be nothing stopping you from scraping emails online and using it for spam.
