Getresponse vs Aweber 2018 | Full Comparison!

Getresponse vs Aweber

These 2 are the best email marketing service providers on the internet right now. Both have their own advantages and disadvantages. Let’s start with the pricing.



So, if we compare the plans of both these 2 service providers, Getresponse plans start from $15/month whereas Aweber plans start from $19/ month. Also, Getresponse allows up to 1000 subscribers in the $15 plan whereas Aweber allows only 500 subscribers in the $19 plan. So Getresponse is slightly cheaper & offers more features.

So Getresponse is slightly cheaper & offers more features.



Both of them support

  • Autoresponders
  • Broadcasting emails
  • Integrations
  • Templates
  • Segmenting
  • Signup forms & other basic things.
  • List importing

What Getresponse provides & Aweber Doesn’t

  • Landing Page Builder
  • Building Professional Workflows
  • Proper Stats for every email you send including the spam rate in autoresponders.
  • Feature to Turn Off Double-Optin Easily (For Aweber see below).

What Aweber Provides & Getresponse Doesn’t

  • Amazing Deliverability Service.
  • The messages with Aweber are sent almost instantly but Getresponse takes some time.

With Getresponse you can build your own landing pages without requiring to pay for any other service like lead pages or Clickfunnels which starts from $37/month and $97/month. But you get what you pay for ­čśŤ A Getresponse Landing page cannot be compared with a professional Clickfunnels or Leadpages landing page. They look much more PROFESSIONAL.

Workflow feature in Getresponse is also really helpful. You can easily do stuff like move people from one list to the other, whenever you want according to your needs, you can do a lot of stuff with Workflows.


My Story With Aweber

So now with Aweber, If you’ve just started or you’re starting everything from scratch, you might not be allowed to turn off the Double-Optin email Option.

I personally faced a lot of problem with Aweber at first. I didn’t get any option to turn off the double opt-in. ┬áBecause of this, I wasn’t able to import my existing list. I contacted Aweber many times but every time they answered me that they need to see some activity on my account.

I had this problem almost for the first 2 weeks. Then they finally removed this barrier and allowed me to turn off double opt-in.

The story is not over yet. I wanted to use Leadpages with Aweber, when I connected both of these services through the API I found that people opting through Leadpages were being sent Confirmation Emails which I had already turned off from my side.

Then I contacted Aweber Again, they told me that they need to see some more activity on my account in order to disable confirmed opt-in for the 3rd party services.

Was a bit frustrating but after 1 week, they completely disabled the double opt-in feature from their side.

Since then I haven’t really faced any issues.


Which is better?

I think Getresponse is slightly better than Aweber. I kind of like how easy it is to set up everything in Getresponse. It also provides more features than Aweber and is also pretty cheap as compared to Aweber.





SPAM issues with Getresponse (Personally)

With Getresponse, I’ve faced one huge problem. I don’t know If I’m the only one facing this problem or there are other people as well. Spam has been a big issue for me with Getresponse. I didn’t face any such issues with Aweber.



Now talking about the support, Getresponse provides 24×7 support with Live Chat. With Aweber, you don’t get full 24×7 support but you can chat with Aweber support in their set timeframe.

And yes that is really it for the comparison. Hope this was helpful.
