I want to start an email newsletter. What email marketing software do you recommend for use in conjunction with Nexternal?
We recommend using MailChimp for email marketing and newsletters because the Nexternal platform is deeply integrated with the MailChimp program. Here is an overview: http://www.nexternal.com/partners/mailchimp.asp
Here is a more detailed MailChimp webinar about MailChimp360, which allows you to send automated drip campaigns based on purchasing history: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1Q5e6L5t8Co
If you prefer not to use MailChimp, you may use any email marketing program, (for example Constant Contact, iContact, Campaign Monitor, etc.) - however in this case you would need to manually import and export your lists instead of the automated data flow provided for MailChimp, and you would need to manually sync subscribes and unsubscribes - whereas with MailChimp this is all automated.
