I used to run Serena Restaurant and Bar in RTP and we used iContact to
send out marketing information to customers. We enjoyed working with
iContact: we got good service at a good price and enjoyed supporting a
local business. Their web tools are simple and easy to use and list
administration was something we could do quickly between lunch & dinner
Our marketing list was opt-in only and we always tried to communicate
something of value to our opt-in receivers. Music, beer specials,
coupons, etc. We never sent something that said "We have a new burger
<picture here> and if you come buy we'll sell it to you at full price."
That's the kind of thing that makes people hate marketing email I did my
best to avoid it. One day I sent out 1/2 price coupons just to thank
people for being on the list.
