    What is needed to create and send HTML mail with images & links? Kind of like a web page.

    Thanks,

    Doug

    Here's a trick that works as long as you don't need tracking.

    Create a webpage with hardcoded image paths (http://www.websitename.com/image.jpg) and put the webpage on a live server

    Go to Word, click file open and type in the full page path, click open.

    It will open the page as an html document within word.

    Now you can adjust the message as you see fit, although you can't add or adjust the images.

    Then find the little email icon in Word. This allows you to actually send the html page through Word as an html email, not an attachement.

    It works really well, and in a pinch too.

    Good luck.

    How does that work for people that get their email in AOL, are they able to read it?

    I really don't know Connie, never thought of that.

    This is a crude solution really. No tracking, etc... But it does work and work well.

    Of course, you could always just pick up a cost-effective subscription to www.optinpro.com!

    I know I have a large percentage of AOL users and am kind of stuck sending text emails unfortunately.
    I would love to find a solution.

    Connie,

    You need to be able to send HTML through a service that has a "sniffer". This will detect on the fly if the person on the receiving end can accept HTML or needs a plain text or a specail AOL version and will send them the appropriate format.

    You also need tracking. As with any other type of marketing, if you can't track your response or results you could be wasting money. Tracking your Open rates can help you analyze which subject lines work the best. Analyzing click through or course can tell you which offers are most effective. Looking at overall success of each campaign can tell you a lot of things - like which mailing days work best, etc.

    I am a certified email consultant for Cooler so instead of writing a book here about HTML email newsletters, let me refer you to my site and a big article I wrote about all the benes of having a good HTML ASP solution and you can get a free trial if you want to check it out.

    http://www.catalystemarketing.com/email_marketing.html

    FYI I am not promoting an affiliate link on this page. I am a certified consultant for them. There is tracking in the URL and I would appreciate when you sign up for the free trial that you say I referred you, but I am not an affiliate, I am a consultant. I have sent numerous campaigns out to 120,000 plus lists for clients and would support and help you too if you want to use the service.

    FYI, I may also be able to get you better rates than what are published on the site so let me help you if you like what you see there.

    Hope this info helps. Sign up for the free trial and let me know if I can help.

    Doug & Connie,

    Fogot to mention also that Cooler as well as most others handle all the subscribe and unsubscribe requests for you automatically. You add email the sign-up form to your site and everything is automatic. You can upload and download your lists plus it de-dups any entries.

    Also personalizes each email and the "Forward to a Friend" feature that's built in helps create a viral marketing affect and can help to build your list.

    Ton of other features too. Call me if you like. My number is on my site. I can give you my password and take you on a tour of what it can do for you.

    Looks like with my large list it would cost me a pretty penny to use it! Spendy!

    Connie,

    One of my clients is mailing to 120,000 2 times per month and I was able to get them a really good deal. The prices on the site for lower volumes are much higher per email than what you pay for large volume. PM or call me if you want me to get you a quote.
