Those of you who want to use your gmail account for email marketing might be interested in this. I didn't want to pay to use other email marketing sofware if I could do make gmail do what I needed. This setup really cuts down my email marketing time so I wanted to share it and get some feedback on it. It basically does the following...
- Personlized Bulk Email Sending - saves a lot of time on initial prospecting email
- Email Tracking - calculate open rates, and see if someone actually reads your email
- Templates - helps respond to emails faster
- Scheduled Sending - send email when people are most likely to read AND respond
You can do everything but the scheduled sending for free (it's free first month and $4.95 per month after - don't worry I'm not getting this money). I wrote and in depth guide on how to do it: Kickass Free DIY Gmail Email Marketing Setup - Part 1 | Automate Life
I'm interested to get some feedback on it and hopefully it can be useful to those looking to do the same!
