Direct Marketing Web tools still free if you know where to look.

While as a provider of print services we know that quality printed materials are an important part of any companies marketing. I’m writing today to tell you about some web services that are not only effective ways to communicate your message but with the exception of your time investment are FREE.

First is email marketing, while there is a plethora of service companies out there, most will charge after a short trial period or limit you to a very short list of contacts and limit features so you need to upgrade to the pay version for any real useful functionality.

I have found that for full services and a subscriber list of up to 1,000 subscribers, that offers a great service for FREE to businesses of all sizes. They offer simple templates to create, sent and track email communications that can easily include photos, dynamic links or video. For you skeptics, below is a link to an explanation of how their free business model works.

My next communication will discuss Survey tools, so stay tuned.

  1. MailChimp is definitely one of the better email newsletters systems available. In the past i have used used Constant Contact, Vertical Response, and numerous other email newsletter systems. MailChip is easy to use and gets the job done. It's also nice that they let you use the service for free if your list is under 1,000 contacts. Very cool indeed.
