Looking for an Email Marketing Solution/Program

I have two websites, one based on an E-Commerce platform, CRE Loaded, and the other is a content site based on Expression Engine. Within the next year I plan to switch the CRE Loaded E-Commerce website to another platform, possibly Magneto.
I am looking for an Email Marketing Solution that I can use for both of the above websites. I actually already have downloaded and installed PHPList and the reason i chose this is to avoid the monthly fees of the services but yet even though it seems powerful I’ve found it hard to set up.
In the past I’ve used both FeedBlitz and Feedburner. They are nice but too basic for my use now.
I want to be able to use it on the E-commerce site to list new items added and a store newsletter weekly. I want to use it on the content site to list new articles added either daily or weekly. It would be nice if I could use an RSS feed to help create these emails but also it would be nice if I can manually add articles/stories.
A couple solutions I’ve come across are Campaign Monitor and MailChimp. Both of these seem nice. I’d like any opinions on these two or suggestions over other solutions.
Thank you for your time.

Another option is listmessenger.com if you have the option to install scripts on your server. Email scripts like listmessenger only has a 1 time fee, while aweber and other solutions charge a monthly fee.

You can try with Email-M.com - SAAS Web based email marketing solutions provider.

I have tried Aweber and MailChimp and prefer MailChimp great product with some new social features too!

I can suggest you getresponse as email marketing solution, their fees are accesible.

The Icontact maybe ok,and foxmail can garther lots of emails together.After seeing your information, may i konw if there some buyers on your e-platform want mining machines such as crushers If ok,may i post sale infs on your e-platform. Thank you in advance.:slight_smile:

I’d go with Aweber if I were you. If you try to do something in-house you are going to be dealing with delivery issues which is a nightmare.

I’ve used MailChimp, iContact and ConstantContact as well. I like Aweber the best.

The systems that I had experience with were iContact which is no where as easy to use as Constant Contact. Constant Contact is the better of the two email marketing services but it does not have the power that Getresponse or Aweber.
