Autoresponders enable online marketers to send emails automatically to their subscribers. The automated, pre-written emails will be directly delivered to the inbox of your subscribers based on when you schedule them to be sent. So why do you need this type of service?  This will help you nurture your leads and turn subscribers into paying customers.  These follow up emails will build trust with your subscribers, provided the emails you are sending to them provide value.  Your emails should be loaded with value first, then you can strategically offer your subscribers relevant product offers at the right time. Here are a few affordable (and some free) services you can get started with.

Getresponse is what I am currently using now, and they have a very simple setup to send out your automated emails. They also offer a GetResponse Free plan, which is designed to get you up and running for up to 500 subscribers at no cost. Once you get some momentum, you can ugrade to the premium plans, which start out at $19 per month for up to 1,000 subscribers. This thing I love about GetResponse is that not only do they offer autoresponder services, they include landing pages, a website builder, basic segmentation of your lists, and email scheduling. They also have a great affiliate program that pays you a $100 referral fee for anyone who signs up under your affiliate link.

This is the first autoresponder I ever used back in 2009, and it still ranks as one of the best in 2022. Aweber enables users to use all the features in a free plan option, which allows up to 500 emails subsribers at no cost. This also incudes landing pages, email templates and sign up forms. However, the free plan will include the 'Aweber' branding, so if you want to upgrade, the cost is $19.99 per month. Currently, it is one of the most popular autoresponder systems for affiliate marketing.

I have never used Convertkit, but I know it has a good reputation. I have watched Pat Flynn, a well known affiliate marketer, promote this platform, so I have decided to include it on my list. They also offer a start-up plan which is free up to 1000 subscribers. They won't even ask you to provide a credit card to set up your free acount. The free plan includes unlimited landing pages, unlimited forms, and unlimited email sending. However, once you are over 1000 subscribers, you will have to upgrade to the next tier paid plan. The paid plan is $29 monthly, but you will get a 14-day free trial before they charge you for the first month.
