The pain point of email marketing
Just recently I sent a campaign to my site’s mailing list, and I spent over two hours tweaking, perfecting, and organizing. If you’ve ever done the same, then you already understand how much planning, design, and organization goes into properly creating email campaigns. You also understand that all of the planning, design and overall strategy is critical in making sure your message is clear, captivating, and correctly targeted in order to be received and avoid falling on deaf ears.
Flashissue understands too and has created an email marketing service by that guarantees to cut the time in half, and make your organization look more professional, instantly. And the ultimate twist? You can do it from right inside your Gmail inbox. You heard me.
How it all works
Complete with a drag and drop editor that makes design faster, Flashissue claims that every email will be stunning and achievable in just minutes. The service also offers easier targeting by organizing your existing Google address book into mailing lists of your choice. So once you have your beautiful email, you can quickly send it to whomever you’d like.
Not only can you send it, but your teammate can too with Flashissue’s team capabilities. With these, you can share email templates with other team members, set up a single point of billing, and manage a team dashboard.
Analytics, templates, and team functions, oh my
But what good is all of that work if you can’t see how effective it is? Typically users could rely on a third party tracking service, or simply counting reply back’s one by one, to measure success, but Flashissue offers an easier way. Once you’ve sent your email, you immediately have access to reports showing who opened your email, and which content they liked the most. The results will give you the feedback you need to properly target and develop relative content going forward.
There are tons of free templates to choose from next time your creative juices aren’t flowing properly at email campaign time. Along with free templates is a free 30 day trial for those who want to give it a try. After the free trial is over, they have four different pricing packages to choose from, including a pay once deal with no ongoing fees.
The icing on the cake for this neat email marketing service, is that it can be integrated with Gmail and MailChimp, two of the largest email listing services around. I personally use MailChimp and was jumping for joy when I saw Flashissue was compatible.
I’m happy Flashissue is around, just a little peeved I found out about it so late. Avoid being like me and stop wasting your time fooling with design, and third party services that don’t do what they say they will. Head to Flashissue’s website to see examples, pricing options, and sign up options.
