I talk a lot about inbound marketing which is all about offering valuable content so targeted leads come and find you via word of mouth, or search engines etc., but you do have to use all the tools in your tool chest and email is one of the most powerful outbound marketing you can do besides cold calling.
Email managed correctly can deliver a low cost, return on investment marketing tool.
I have tried many of the various email vendors with varying results.
All the ones I have used were competent and got the job done. Some were easier to use than others and features varied slightly from one service to another.
The company I stuck with was Benchmark Email. To be honest, once you start with one of these companies it can be tough to move your contact lists and campaigns so the decision to stay was based more on not wanting to go through the hassle, but I am glad I did.
As I stated earlier I have had the chance to use some of the other mail programs and I can easily say that my decision to stay with Benchmark was a good one. They have all of the best of the best features and make them easy to use and I have found their tech and customer support to under promise and over deliver. I like that and think that most companies have forgotten how to serve it's clients with courtesy and respect.
Full disclosure: I have set up an affiliate agreement with Benchmark Email and you will find their ads on my sites and on this blogpost. I rarely do this and most of my posts are very arms length so that you can believe what I am saying when I give testimonial for various products or services.
In Benchmark's case I do believe in this company and will continue to use them and recommend them and I will gladly allow them to help sponsor my efforts.
Recently I called Benchmark to see about changing my programs so that I wasn't overspending on my mailing campaigns and got into a discussion with sales about the possibility of them doing an interview on the best use of email programs and marketing and to my surprise they jumped on it.
So here is my interview of Daniel Miller Benchmark's Sales Manager as he talks about email from A to Z and beyond. A great interview FULL of brilliant information. If you want to become a master at your marketing this is where you should start. - JW
