E-mail subscriptions without form?

2 replies
We're going to be running a promotion with a local restaurant to build them a list so they can E-mail people specials. They're going to have an E-mail address on some printouts to E-mail to be included on the list.

At least that's the plan ...

What listserv type software will allow subscriptions by E-mail? Don't want to send them to a page to fill out a form. Just want it to grab the E-mail address of the individual sending.

Any thoughts?

    Have you actually tested that particular list method
    and compared it against using a form?

    You may be better registering a really compellingly named domain
    and get them to visit that instead.

    Just a thought.

    I doubt you'll get many sign-ups. (just my opinion)

    People are used to seeing a form. Having an "email us here so we can email you" email is a little odd - I suppose it would stand out but folks are getting kinda protective of their email address so that may not be a good thing.

    Autoresponder companies all have their faults, but it's a relatively low cost thing to implement for a business...

    Aweber is $19/mo
    icontact is $9.95/mo for up to 250 subscribers
    Mailchimp is free for up to 500 - you can't do affiliate marketing with them by their TOS, but you wouldn't be in this case.

    Start with mailchimp if nothing else IMHO.

    Hope it helps!
