iContact Email Marketing Review

There are literally dozens of email marketing companies on the internet, but one of the best email service providers we have found for the “do it yourself” email marketer is iContact.

If you are looking to create and send your own email marketing campaigns, then iContact should be on your top list of companies to consider.

They offer over 100 great email marketing templates for free with their service. Also their list management tools and template editor are very easy to use- for both beginners and advanced users.

We have been using iContact for 6 months now with no problems. One big difference between iContact and some of the other service providers is that they offer the ability to send time delayed email marketing campaigns (also called drip campaigns or email sequences).

We have found that automated email marketing campaigns work wonders in educating our prospects and warming up sales leads. The program has been a huge success. What we do is pre-write a series of sales letters and promotions and load them all up into iContact as an automated campaign.

When you setup an automated campaign, new prospects opt into your campaign via website signup forms and begin the sequence automatically. Every couple days iContact sends them a message. The best part is that your can track response rates over time and continually optimize our email marketing.
