@scottieschufford-anderson – I have used Aweber for years and love their system. Their support is really good as well. Mailchip, constant contact, and the others are also good options, but I just prefer Aweber’s UI more for some reason.
The only downside with any of the options above is when you have to manually import a list. With each of the platforms you have to submit the list and wait for the contacts to answer an opt-in message. This often leads to a lot of attrition and you cannot import the same list twice.
Conclusion:If you are building your list purely online, then any of the above will work. If you are looking to start with a list that you are going to import, I would check into North Social as they will allow you to import a large list w/o having everyone opt-in as long as you agree to their terms of service.
Hope that helps,Chris
