Over the last 5 years I have downloaded and reviewed more e-mail distribution software programs and services then I care to admit.
Recently, I have come across an excellent program for those of you who are providing e-mail newsletters and other news alerts to your clients. The program is Email Marketing Director (US$495) from Ariel software. (http://www.arialsoftware.com/).
Its features inlcude:
- Easy to use and works from your PC
- Email personalization
- Built-in database to manage lists
- Unlimited lists
- Subscriber's filter
- Handles bounces and removes automatically
- Built-in email newsletter templates
- Works with your existing ISP mail settings
- No monthly fees like email services
- Use for email newsletters, announcements, etc.
- Free trial
Though you can find other programs for less money, this one is definitely worth its price.
