Here is the detail list and description of each of the email marketing applications

1) Active Campaign

Active Campaign is an all in one marketing platform that provides email marketing, automation, sales & CRM.

This is a gold standard when it comes to email automation.
You can send broadcast emails, targeted emails, personalized emails, autoresponders, event-triggered email, and some serious email automation capabilities. Below you can see how you are able to visually create email automation to suit any use case.
I have heard some people saying they got the Active Campaign accounts shut down for sending too much affiliate links. You have to be cautious with how you use it if you are sending affiliate offers. Always remember that every email you send has value and not just a buy now link.
That being said, this is one of the best email marketing tools available today.

2) Aweber

Aweber has been around for a long time. They have evolved their application and it is a close second to ActiveCampaign.  Aweber makes email marketing very easy. It brings together all the tools you need to send emails the right way.

It was built for time-strapped content creators, small business owners, and entrepreneurs to be able to create broadcast campaigns and automated drip campaigns quickly and painlessly.
You get access to easy-to-use automation tools to launch automated email sequences, tag and segment subscribers based on their behavior, send remarkable one-time promotional emails or newsletters, and track your success.
The automations are awesome. One of my favorite features is the "if reader clicks on link, send this email sequence". This is huge and allows for some serious 1 to 1 marketing.
