iContact email system

I have recently tried out all the major online email systems that medium sized organisations use, that usually have 5,000 to 10,000 email contacts. I have been running trials with Constant Contact, Mail Chimp and iContact over the last 6 months.

For a combination of lowest cost and best  / most user-friendly functionality I recommend iContact.

For summary details about iContact email, here’s also a user guide with system costs and benefits –  http://bit.ly/iContactUserGuide

iContact benefits summary:

  • Easy list management – multiple lists, with duplicates all removed on send
  • Good open and click results analysis – pie graphs, download click contacts etc
  • Allows you to edit your emails in both design and html view, plus a text version
  • You can import your current event email templates easily in html, plus upload images.
  • You can send up to 6 emails per month to your entire email list (newsletter, sales email, different topics etc)
  • Costs is $74 per month for up to 10,000 email addresses loaded (0.7c /email). This works out at 0.5p per email contact.
