Email Marketing Still a Great Small Business Tool
Having lots of channels and lots of ways for folks to receive relevant, education based content is a must.
While social media and other web based marketing tools are getting most of today’s hype, email marketing to a list of willing recipients is still a very powerful way to market.
Staying top of mind is often half the battle and a steady drip of information via email is a simple, effective and low-cost way to get this done.
There are many great options for tools to use in your email marketing, but today I would like to tell you a little about Vertical Response and a free trial of 500 emails available to Duct Tape readers. You can get your 500 email trial here.
I’ve use Vertical Response over the past few months to send my email newsletter and I can tell you that I really like the simple and very intuitive interface. When I did have a question or two, I found a real person on the phone that got me running right away. They also have a survey tool and recently added the ability to send snail-mail post cards to your list.
They have a nice selection of email templates and monthly pricing as low as $10 per month.
