AWeber vs GetResponse – A Detailed Comparison of 2 Email Marketing Platforms

GetResponse and Aweber are tools for organizing your mailing list; create attractive templates for the newsletter and sending newsletters to your subscribers. They also allow you to automate your communications to subscribers through ‘automatic responses’. These are used to provide subscribers with newsletters at predefined intervals – for example, immediately after enrolling, a subscriber may receive a simple welcome of its business; a week later they could receive a discount coupon for some of their property; three weeks later they could receive an incentive to keep social media, etc. That’s just the starting point though: e-newsletter tools like these allow you to do lots of other amazing things.

SETUP FOR GETRESPONSE

  • Select the ‘campaign selector’ under the navigation bar, it provides you the option to create a new campaign.
  • Add a campaign name.
  • The campaign is created; now edit your campaign settings before adding contacts.

 SETUP FOR AWEBER

  • You are directed towards the personalize setting once all your information is added over here.
  • The final step in the list setup process is to customize your confirmation settings.

VERDICT

While setting GetResponse definitely gives you more options (specifically in the campaign settings) and is relatively simple. But Aweber setup is more simple and easy to work upon.

You cannot pass a straight step by step process, especially if you just started with email marketing. In terms of setting up Aweber is simpler than the GetResponse.

 EMAILING TEMPLATES FOR GETRESPONSE

44

 There are more than 500 email templates available in various categories.

All categorized so you can find a template that fits with your business, but more likely a long list of other categories might work as well.

EMAILING TEMPLATES FOR AWEBER

AWeber also has over 500+ email templates, also under several different categories.

An interesting thing is that some of the recent e-mail templates have carved as popular WordPress themes.

This includes Parallax StudioPress Pro and even the subject of Derek Halpern Social triggers.

I can understand the motivations behind this; it does help provide a consistent experience. Well, that’s if you use one of the issues that have been used.

VERDICT

Both contains responsive email templates and both have more than 500+ templates. Therefore in terms of the emailing templates both are equally good.

MESSAGE BUILDER OF GETRESPONSE

The create news-letter option helps to code the emails as you like.

MESSAGE BUILDER OF AWEBER

33

In Aweber we call it “Broadcasts”, what we call “newsletters” in the GetResponse.

VERDICT THROUGH SPLIT TESTING

Different versions of your emails can be tested through the split testing in the segments of your data and send the best performance for the rest of your database. GetResponse proves out to be slightly ahead when split testing – which allows you to test up to 5 variants of electronic newsletters in comparison Aweber tests only 4. Both GetResponse and Aweber provide a more complete functionality testing than their rival MailChimp, which essentially only allows you to test a simple a / B and involves only subject header sender and send time – Aweber and GetResponse do not have any restrictions, allow fully tested different versions of your mail on your data.

THE GETRESPONSE AUTORESPONDER

Create an automatic response by clicking on the ‘Messages’ tab on the main navigation bar.

It also provides the option to select which event will trigger automatic response.

You may use the “time-based” and other features to email the offers at the right time.

THE AWEBER AUTORESPONDER

In Aweber you are limited to only “time-based” auto-responder.

Final saying for AUTO-RESPONDER

In Aweber the follow up mails directly gets emailed to your list when they’re added, unless you contact support and this is a serious flaw. Therefore GetResponse wins the verdict for the AutoRespondent.

OPTIMIZING THE SEND-TIME

The feature “send time optimization” which not yet available in the Aweber has been recently launched by the GetResponse. Send time optimization automatically sends emails at the time that it is likely to be opened. – GetResponse looks at his list of subscribers and their email habits testing and makes this call on your behalf. If you can live with using this extremely supportive type of technology then, according to GetResponse, you can expect an average improvement of 23% open rates and an average improvement of 20% in click-through rates.

WHAT TO CHOOSE GETRESPONSE OR AWEBER?

Both Aweber and GetResponse offer a good range of tools to help create, maintain and communicate with a database of email; even if you are not all that technically minded, you should not have too much difficulty using to manage their electronic communications. As are priced very similar tools, equally impressive, it’s hard to declare a clear winner here; however, I believe that together, GetResponse is probably the best product value, for the following reasons:

You can sign up for a free trial without entering credit card.

It is generally more competitive prices (especially if your subscriber list contains between 500 and 1,000 records).

18% discount is available if you pay for the product in an annual rather than monthly

Offering wider choices split testing

It comes with an integrated destination page creator

Its new “send time optimization ‘has the potential to improve your open rates and clicks.

The main reasons for choosing Aweberis a little more number of templates which are definitely a little more attractive and integrates a little easily with some other tools.

 

Apple unveils iPhone 6 and iWatch, Cupertino, California, America - 09 Sep 2014

THESE ‘APPLES’ KEEP THE OTHER SMARTPHONES AWAY!

On September 9, 2015, Apple Inc. showed the world what it had in store in terms of its next version of the iPhone along with many other premium Apple products. The Cupertino based brand has been known to produce high end smartphones for those who love the best in technology. With the launch of the new iPhone 6S and 6S Plus, the prices of the previous versions of the iPhone may reduce. Listed below is the Apple iPhone Price List of the currently available models in the market along with their tech specs:

  • iPhone 6 Plus

This phone rules the market with its amazing specs and design. The iPhone 6 Plus was launched in three variants: 16, 64, and 128 GB. The lowest GB variant costs about Rs.50000. With a 5.5” LED screen, the resolution of 1920 x 1080p seems even better. The Oleophobic coating works to prevent smudges on the screen. The phone is powered by Apple’s very own A8 chip, and uses 64 bit system architecture to give the best user experience. The phone is equipped with what most would term ‘as the world’s best camera phone’. The primary camera is the 8 megapixel iSight camera, while the secondary camera is 1.2 megapixels. The front camera allows the user to use Apple’s FaceTime video calling. Apple understands the user’s need for security and hence has incorporated Touch ID which recognizes the user’s fingerprints to unlock the phone or to make secured purchases. It supports 4G connectivity. Siri, the voice assistant, aids the user with multitasking amongst many other things. The phone offers twenty four hours of talk time on 3G.

  • iPhone 6

The 16 GB variant of the iPhone 6 is priced at an approximate Rs.45000. Not unlike the 6 Plus, this phone too makes use of Touch ID for security measures. It uses the same A8 processor as the 6 Plus. The camera is the same as that on the iPhone 6 Plus. The major difference between the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus is the screen size, with the former being a smaller 4.7” screen with a lesser 1334x750p resolution. The battery is different, providing a talk time of about fourteen hours on 3G.

  • iPhone 5S

Another very popular premium phone, the iPhone 5S is available in only two options- 16 or 32 GB. The 16 GB variant of the iPhone 5S costs about Rs.35, 000. It sports a 4” screen with a display resolution of 1136x640p and a pixel density of 326 ppi. It uses a relatively obsolete A7 chip which nevertheless ensures smooth and efficient processing and multitasking. It also uses the M7 motion coprocessor. It has the same camera as the iPhone 6 Plus models, except for the OIS feature. It too has the Touch ID security feature.

  • iPhone 5C

Only the 8 GB variant of the iPhone 5C is available in the market today in blue, red, green, and yellow colours. It is a 4” phone with an A6 chip. It is priced at roughly Rs.25000 and provides a talk time of around ten hours on 3G.

Grab one of these Apples and see how smooth and easy the smartphone is to use which will definitely make you want to stay away from the other smartphones!
