Many bloggers know that promoting a blog can take far more time than actually creating content. This email plugin, which includes a signup box widget, does all the work for you.
Los Alamitos, California (PRWEB) March 22, 2012
Benchmark Email, an award-winning, global email marketing service, has created a free WordPress email marketing plugin designed for WordPress bloggers. Created with the developers from BeAutomated, the Benchmark Email Lite plugin gathers email signups on blog pages, then lets bloggers quickly send out newsletter versions of their WordPress posts to subscribers.
“Many bloggers know that promoting a blog can take far more time than actually creating content. This email plugin, which includes a signup box widget, does all the work for you,” says Curt Keller, CEO of the email marketing company Benchmark Email. “It's a very simple process. Visitors go to your blog and sign up for your emails, and after you write a blog post, you hit a few buttons to send out the email version. It's really that easy."
Benchmark Email Lite lets bloggers create a signup box matching their blog's theme, and use up to 28 custom fields to gather information beyond an email address or name. The widget can be placed on any or all blog pages, if the theme allows it (a third-party plugin can be used for this). Benchmark Email Lite also allows multiple API keys, and bloggers can create up to five different email lists in the WordPress back-end for sending posts to subscribers.
Once a WordPress blogger signs up for a free 30-day trial at Benchmark Email, they can use the plugin and widget for free, indefinitely. Benchmark Email also features online surveys and polls, a free email marketing app for the iPhone, social media tools, and other features, with paid plans starting at $9.95 a month.
