We can set up a customer engagement strategy based on development of an email list of clients or customers. Add an email opt-in, generate targeted populations based on email engagement, begin a discussion, or simply get the word out.

Email marketing is available through a variety of service providers. The choice of provider (see a partial list below) depends on matching a business’s needs with available options.

iContact.com - Start Your 30 Day Trial Today! iContact offers both a single opt-in option and blog broadcasting to the email list, like Mad Mimi. They do have a free option for less than 100 subscribers. Their blog broadcast is not as attractive as Mad Mimi’s.
