The last time I met my friends (which was like three weeks ago), we talked about how it could be difficult to get information from the embassy. We also agreed that as much as we’d like to be informed of their activities, we couldn’t visit their website as often as we wanted to. I suggested then that what the embassy needs is an email newsletter software.
There are more than 50,000 expats from back home living all around the country. The best way to reach them and inform them of what’s happening is through email, IMO. A simple tool like iContact could be the answer. iContact is an email marketing tool but its uses is not limited to business. Organizations like churches, schools and embassies could benefit from it. Aside from email, it could also be used for surveys and autoresponder.
iContact email software offers a 15-day free trial. That is great especially if one is skeptical of how easy it is to use the software. Their packages start at $9.95 and it has an easy to use interface. The company currently has over 15,000 customers and more than 100,000 users.
