I have been using Constant Contact for nearly 10 years now, and although they have a few faults, I find their customer service beyond reproach, and you can actually get a human on the phone if you need one!
I’ve also started playing around w/AWeber recently, because CC didn’t have a good RSS > Email product, and AWeber does. Although it’s funny…the way I’ve started using AWeber’s RSS > Email tool, I could have done the same thing in CC.
What I do is instead of just have my blog posts turn into an email newsletter, I’m beginning to play around w/sending a personalized note that includes a link to the post.
I saw a lot of IM’s who I respect doing that, so I asked my friend Amy Porterfield why she does it and she told me that it drives people back to the site where they are more likely to comment and share her post.
Wish I had realized that earlier.
