New Features & Updates: Free Images, Quicker List Building, and Faster Delivery
We’ve added new features, made some enhancements and bug fixes. Check out the highlights of the December 9th, 2015 release:
Finding the right, high-quality image for your email is important, and also challenging. A nice visual can help you communicate your message and get your reader to engage more. The quality of the image can affect how subscribers perceive your email – whether it is professional or not. This is why in our latest release, we’ve integrated Pixabay free, high-quality image search into the VerticalResponse email editor. Now you can:
- Browse by category and search over 530,000 royalty free images
- Automatically insert images into your email without copying and pasting, or downloading and uploading
List growth is a major component of successful email marketing. Our new quick ‘add contact’ widget allows you to type or paste contacts in seconds. You can enter names and email addresses up to three at a time, or cut and paste (up to 50 email addresses at once). This is great if you used to send your newsletter from your own email client but have since “upgraded” to sending from VerticalResponse.
Signup forms on the web are another great way to grow your email list. The best practice is to clearly explain why the visitor should join your list and then ask permission to collect whatever data is necessary (email address, name, location, etc.). With our new update, you can choose, right up front, if you want to publish your signup web page on Verticalresponse.com, or if you would rather indicate the data you want to collect during signup and generate the HTML code that can then be embedded on your own website. The choice is now yours.
New credit card? No problem! It happens, your credit card expires, and you get a new one. Or perhaps as a marketing consultant you want to charge VerticalResponse account fees to a client’s credit card. Now you can log in and update your billing info: add, update, and delete cards from your account.
Google recently updated the Chrome web browser, and some customers had difficulty with the email editor. We’ve resolved these issues by improving compatibility with the Chrome web browser. Creating emails is now back to smooth sailing.
Customers with large audiences (greater than 50,000 contacts) can now get campaigns out faster – twice as fast in fact! Contact us to learn more about our high-volume pricing plans!
