Trying Out Smore!
It's a service to send out nice emails to lists of folks
This is really easy to edit!
Ok am impressed so far...
Wow it lets you put in videos from YouTube!
Alright just about done...
Now I envision you using something like this for those more personal emails that you send out. I do not think we should use this for general promotion - it will probably not like our giant email list because of spam issues. But for smaller lists like you will normally use it should work.
Ok finishing up here. The editor really is intuitive to use - kinda fun in fact. On to the list management part. Hope it works as good as the editor!
Ok in conclusion...
Now one thing that is different, and not necessarily bad, is Smore converts all the email into images pretty much so the recipient has to click show images in their email client. Worked fine in gmail and outlook for me. The video does not play in the email client but becomes a nice link to the video on YouTube. I know the rationale behind converting - it pretty much guarantees that your email will look like it does here no matter what email client the recipient has with the added bonus of printing very very well. Believe me getting email designed that does not look all messed up in one client or the other is tough - web browser have a set of standards they follow - email clients do not.
