Act! is now including Act! Marketing Automation Basic in all new and renewal licenses. The Basic level will allow you to send 2500 emails per month. This is a fantastic way to begin using Marketing Automation. Although you will not have any of the advanced features, you can begin by developing fantastic looking email templates and sending them out to your contacts. This is especially good news for users of the old Swiftpage E Marketing or Act! E Marketing packages, both of which have been obsoleted. The inclusion of the Basic tier of Act! Marketing Automation is a great alternative for these users. This new tier provides a drag and drop template editor and allows you to send up to 2500 emails per month which can be expanded to 10,000 emails per month for the cost of $15.00 per month for each 2500 added. You will also be able to see basic metrics in Act! as to whether your email was opened.
