Email Providers: You would use these to capture your customer's names and email addresses from your website (or manually) and you would use their service to send out your newsletters.  These providers will keep track of customers email subscriptions and unsubscribes and send any email correspondence.  They all offers standard email services and analytics so you can measure which emails people open and which ones they don't.

This is just a partial list.  There are many, many more than this.

My AMAZING WordPress Theme.  Thrive Themes has amazing training videos too about increasing conversion and opt-ins.  The theme is designed to help you build landing pages and high converting pages. It takes the guess work out of it. You can spend the time researching how to build a high converting page or you can just page a reasonable fee for something else to be the expert and you can leverage their knowledge. I bought the theme subscription which includes the lead plug-ins and content building plug-ins that make beautiful web pages.

Monica Shah is a small business owner, MBA grad and business professor. I have my MBA from the Kellogg School of Management (the business school at Northwestern University). I am also an adjunct business professor in New York City, where I teach marketing and business plan classes. But first and foremost, I’m an entrepreneur, a corporate escapee and a lover of everything in the business world.

I’m also passionate about guiding women through the process of leaving corporate to start their own companies. Leaving corporate was the biggest gift I’ve ever given myself. I’m happy to be the Sherpa who guides newbies to the other side – safely and profitably.
