  1. Hi Michael

    I was looking into AWeber

    Does it handle affiliate the way infusion soft can etc.

    As the email list grows, does AWeber just increase the monthly charges or do we have to start an account at the level that we think we might need?

    Thanks for the podcast and if you are doing a video of how CRM works and in particular AWeber that would be great
