After looking at different options for a few days, you decide, I will not turn all of my subscribers over to any one else.
You are afraid of horror stories of sites selling these list for money involved. So you decide, I will do this myself, where I have control of my subscribers, and no one else.
Let me tell you what I did, and hopefully you will know better than to do this. I purchased a cgi script, since I know how to install cgi programs.
I didn't think this thru good enough, or I would have known, that this was not what I should be doing.
I paid, "hang onto your hat" $99.95 for this script. If you read my newsletter, you know what happened. My web host went down for about ten hours, and end result was, I lost my entire subscriber list.
Thank God, I had most of it in my printed file as people subscribed. Think of fun I had going thru over three hundred pieces of paper, setting up a new list.
On that very day, I said to myself, "Vern" that's what I call myself, most of time. The other times, I can't put in print. I said this is going to change, before this happens again.
I tried many programs, ranging in price from $199.95 to $499.95. Some were so hard to setup, that you needed to be a computer expert to set it up.
I finally decided on Postmaster, $299.95, going to $349.95 very soon. I picked it, because a dummy like me can set it up.
I feel confident now that I can collect my subscribers info without having to worry about it.
Putting out this newsletter, takes time away from my advertising, but I think advertising I get by putting it out, out weighs time I missed promoting.
PS. If you are thinking of starting your own newsletter, (do it.) Send me way to subscribe, and I will.
