Email marketing does not only have to be about pushing readers to a call to action (although it is very effective at that). Email marketing is also useful in keeping your brand in your customer's mind so that when they do need your services, they will think of you and not your competitors.
Responsive web design is no longer just a catchphrase, it's here. Analytics show that more and more people, especially the people you probably want to target, are accessing the web via a mobile device.
We're here to help.

Why would anybody not want IMAP? It's convenient. You can access your email on every device you own. It gets backed up on the remote server, so that if your local computer should die, miraculously, your email will "reappear" when you get a new computer.
But, what happens when the internet goes down? What if you have a brand new computer, phone, tablet, but it can't connect to the internet. How can you search for that email you've got to respond to....when you can't get to the remote server hosting your IMAP email.
If your email is set up as POP3, you can.

Nobody wants to think about mortality or death and dying, and nobody wants to think about the possibility that their computer may not boot one day. But like mortality, you will probably experience the death of a harddrive sooner or later. Best to have a back up plan in place when this does happen.

Heard of our new Support Portal, but have yet to visit it? One of the new areas we are working on, and hope you find useful is the Knowledge Base, which we are populating with answers to "Frequently Asked Questions" about Email setup for various clients. The thing we are asked most is "What is my password?" In light of that, we thought it would be good to post some information about Password Management here, and in our Support Portal. One of the headaches of the modern age is setting up passwords for each account we have online. These add up, and it is sometimes onerous to have to a) create them, and b) remember them. However, in this modern age, where we are increasingly relying on our digital packets of information, it is becoming even more important to have safe and secure passwords. Hackers increasingly are hacking people's email and online account passwords to mine personal information, sometimes just to spam other people, sometimes to garner financial data. Prevention is the key.
