This is an amazingly full-featured multiple newsletter and email subscription/follow-up/autoresponder.
I wrote about it before in a post called Some Useful Plugins, but there have been vast improvements since so I think it deserves its own post.
Unless you’re afraid to use the WordPress Dashboard or like spending money for no reason, forget autoresponders like MailChimp and Aweber that charge you a monthly subscription fee.
Subscription-based list management tools are hardly more feature-rich than WP Autoresponder, not much easier to use, and they’re a slow leak in your wallet.
With this plugin you can:
- Create unlimited number of newsletter lists
- Create followup email responses that can be schedueld to go out after a specific number of days since the subscriber subscribes.
- Add subcription forms to your sidebar using widgets.
- Provide email subscriptions to your blog without using third party services like Feedburner
- Generate subscription forms and then use them on your website anywhere.
- Collect more information about your subscribers by generating custom fields for your subscription forms.
- Schedule e-mail broadcasts to your email newsletters in text/html. You can even send the broadcast to specific sections of your newsletter by selecting them using the custom fields.
- Provide email subscription to specific categories in your blog
- Import your subscribers from Feedburner, Aweber, or any comma-delimited text file with “Name” and “Email Address” columns.
- Define rules, such as unsubscribing users from one newsletter if they subscribe to another.
There are many sites that charge hefty subscription fees for inferior versions of what WP Responder gives you free.
