When selecting email management software, consider the following key factors:

 

1. Email Organization and Search

   - The software should provide comprehensive features for organizing emails into folders, tags, or categories.

   - It should also have robust search capabilities for quickly locating specific emails.

Ease of use! I proposed creating newsletters for a program I volunteer with and there was some hesitancy since they thought email creation was a manual process. During a meeting, I showed off the Constant Contact editor and they were able to see how easy it would be to build newsletters. 

 

They also wanted different types of sign-up forms. We have an inline form on the website and also shared a landing page URL on Facebook so our followers can sign up to receive our communications.

In addition to the other comments above which are robust and thorough, @Caitlin_M highlights something that is irreplaceable at the core - ease of use! So many of my seminar/webinar attendees or consulting clients are the sole operators or lead a small team, meaning they have to do the marketing themselves. Since it's not their main skill set, they fear the unknown and imagine it to be worse than it is. There is no system easier or simpler to use! That was a core part of Constant Contact's goal in creating their software all those years ago: easy to use for the average small business or nonprofit!
