Ask Ali: "What Email Programs Do You Suggest For Sending Out Ezines & Newsletters?"

Question: “Hi Ali, What email programs do you suggest? Cooler email just suspended our corporate account because they consider us to be a MLM. We are a Direct Sales skincare company!”
–Michelle Archer, Nouveau, Henderson, Tenn.
Ali’s Answer: “Michelle, thanks for writing, and you’re smart to want to build and communicate with an email list. A friendly way to do this is by publishing an e-zine or email newsletter. While I can’t speak to Cooler Email’s practices, I can surely recommend the best systems from my own experience and that of my hundreds of clients. Here are my top 3 picks for managing your ezines and email lists. All of them are web-based applications, meaning you don’t need to install software onto your computer to use them. (Just make sure you back up your lists at least once a week!)
1. Constant Contact is a great option for just email management, publishing your ezine, etc. And they have super-easy templates you can use too. Constant Contact is all about email and works very well. Many of my clients use them and love it! You can get a FREE 60-day trial here.
2. 1ShoppingCart/AutoWebBusiness is a great option for those of you who need both email management and also an e-commerce solution, meaning you can take payments online, process orders, and keep track of your customers. For most of my clients who truly run an online business, this is a good application for them. It’s one I used for several years as my online dashboard for my business, and it worked great. You can get a 4-week test-drive for only $3.95 here.
3. InfusionSoft is the system I now use. For more robust needs and marketing-centered businesses, this is what I recommend. Their integration and capabilities allow you to use one system for all your marketing and customer-relations management needs. For a growing small business, there comes a time when basic marketing tools just can’t grow with you. That’s what happened to us, and why we moved to InfusionSoft. Their powerful software combines CRM, email marketing, and e-commerce into one integrated system driven by the power of what they call “marketing automation”. Whether you sell online, manage a sales team or anything in between, Infusionsoft can help you convert leads, grow sales and save time. You can see how it can work for you by registering for a live demo here.
