Here’s a video of Google Checkout – it loads quickly and explains the service very well. It’s definitely worth a look.
I discovered a new web browser today called Flock. It’s based on Firefox, which is what I’ve been using since it was released. I was a little skeptical when I first read about Flock on www.audihertz.net, but I decided to go and take a look.
Setting up Flock to work with my Flickr and WordPress was easy – when I say easy I mean it was easier than opening the fridge. This is only my second blog post using Flock so come back in a few days and I’ll let you know how I’m liking it.
Good work to the team at Flock!
Flock is a free web browser that makes it easier than ever to share photos, stay up-to-date with news from your favorite sites, and search the Web. Take our tour to learn what’s different about Flock, then download the beta to get started – and please tell us what you think.
Blogged with Flock
I wrote about html newsletters in an earlier post.
Here’s some news from the horse’s mouth. David Greiner from Campaign Monitor posted his thoughts on creating HTML email. As mentioned previously, Campaign Monitor is THE company when it comes to email delivery – so it’s a good guess that David knows his stuff.
Take a look inside David’s brain: HTML Emails Recommendations
Thanks to the include digital blog for bringing David’s article to my attention.
I’m often asked how you send “those emails with the pictures like companies do” by friends, family, and clients. “Those emails with the pictures” are called html emails and they require that you build a webpage and send from the page.
The most effective solution I’ve found for sending and tracking html newsletter is Campaign Monitor, an Australian company who specializes in email campaigns. They are very cost-effective and they allow you to track who’s opened their emails and who hasn’t. They also provide great tutorials for anyone who’s interested in building their own html emails. Note that if you don’t know how to build webpages html emails are particularly daunting – so it’s probably best for your sanity that you contact someone who does build webpages.
Here’s a list of sample html emails that Campaign Monitor has posted.
