and Autoresponder Services
Many newcomers to the Internet
marketing arena are not aware that there is a vast difference
between an Autoresponder program and an Autoresponder service.

Autoresponder, and find out too late that they have wasted money on
a program that is useless to them.
An Autoresponder program is a program that is set up on your
web server. This is usually a free Autoresponder that comes with
your web hosting account. Many people don?t like to use
Autoresponder services; so instead, they use an Autoresponder
program that they have more control over. Some of those people don?t

Free services make their money by placing advertisements in each
Autoresponder message that you send out. Sometimes these ads appear at the

version, and have many of the more advanced features, such as tracking,
More advanced users often choose to use Autoresponder programs, simply
because they have more control over the Autoresponder, and they don?t have
to follow some of the stiffer rules imposed by Autoresponder services,
such as sending confirmation to each and every person who is entered into
the Autoresponders list.
The Autoresponder that you choose is strictly up to you, but in most
cases, an Autoresponder service should suit your needs. If you are unsure,
look for a service that offers free signups, with the option of upgrading
to the professional paid version at a later date.
