I seem to have found something better than AWeber!
I quit AWeber the other day for something more friendly for both beginners and starters in email marketing.
I think with this new option I found, everyone starting a blog can immediately start building a list even with zero investment. I know there are some options in the market that can get you going from a fresh start. MailChimp for example offers free service but you soon run into trouble if you start sending Affiliate Marketing mails.
