Offers Affordable Permission-Based Email Marketing Service

SherpaHost Makes Targeted Email Marketing Easy as 1-2-3

Las Vegas, NV, December 25, 2007 --( SherpaHost has announced a new addition to its Web-based email product line.

SherpaHost's Express Email Marketing™ product is a permission-based e-mail marketing tool that enables individuals and business owners to build and manage customer lists, create and send eye-catching emails, and monitor e-mail campaign response. Most importantly, Express Email Marketing provides the features needed to help the user comply 100% with the latest anti-spam laws.

Subscribers can be added individually or imported in bulk from an external file, and the subscriber lists can be segmented into interest groups and detailed demographic information to enable more granular targeting of campaigns. List management features allow the user to control all aspects of his/her subscriber list, including the creation of a sign-up form and links aimed at attracting new subscribers, and the option of ensuring that subscriber lists are permission-based by forcing confirmed opt-ins (double opt-ins).

SherpaHost's Email Marketing service complies with anti-spam laws by requiring that all subscribers added or imported to the Email Marketing account receives a confirmation e-mail. In addition, an opt-out link is located at the bottom of every campaign mailing, allowing subscribers to opt-out of future mailings. Subscribers who do not respond to the confirmation email or who click the opt-out link are automatically removed from your subscriber list.

Express Email Marketing includes an Image Library of more than 1,500 images, which can be used to create dazzling, eye-catching emails. Webmasters can also upload their own images to add to the library. The images are automatically resized to fit your email. No design skills are necessary to create promotional emails.

Express Email Marketing's convenient step-by-step process helps the user design and target each campaign, which can be in the form of product promotions, newsletters or announcements based on pre-built HTML templates or user-created custom HTML. Monitoring is accomplished at several levels in real time and with rich graphical reporting: Users are provided with snapshots and detailed views of subscriber activity, campaign status, campaign effectiveness, and interest-group activity.

Easy-to-use reports can track the results of your email marketing campaign. Webmasters can use the reports to track how emails were sent, how many emails were opened, how many people responded and much more. Express Email Marketing even offers webmasters the ability to send out surveys to their customer base.
