So there you are in your office, a model of productivity, and then *blammo* ... a beautifully formatted, colorful email catches your attention. You read, you surf, you spend, and somewhere both a web geek and a site owner sigh happily.
Sure, you might find them annoying, but there's no denying email newsletters are effective. And considering the investment, surely one of the best values for your advertising dollars (we even posted an article in our blog about all the benefits if you'd like to fill your head with more of that knowledge stuff).
We're pretty darn proud to offer our own Email Newsletter service - FF Reach. It's chock full o' wonderful features to make your emails come alive, and easy to use to boot. Pair that with an optional spiffy new ForeFront-developed template design, and you'll have the perfect vehicle to spread all the awesome goodness about your company/firm/products/services/water buffalo.
Why use an email service?Most email hosts limit the number of emails that you can send at any one time. Send more and you run the risk of being labeled a "spammer" - and no one wants that. Aside from that major point, there are plenty of other great reasons:
- CAN-SPAM Act compliance
The CAN-SPAM Act of 2003 was enacted to cut down on all those wonderful spam emails that we all still receive. The FF Reach service adheres to all CAN-SPAM requirements.
- Template library/storage
Simply point and click to choose from the default library of designs, or have our award-winning folks design something just for you.
- HTML and plain text emails
Some people have their email program set up to only accept text - no pictures. Our system automatically detects this and delivers the appropriate format.
You get full reports on how many emails were delivered, how many were "opened", how many people clicked the links, and much more!
- List Management
We can install a sign up form on your website (like this one!), and all emails are delivered with an unsubscribe option.
