Here’s an excerpt from the blog post Aaron and I wrote as co-founders on the iContact blog this morning…

We want iContact to become a great global company someday–a great company that is passionate about customer success, building easy online marketing tools, and social responsibility.

And so today we have an exciting announcement that we believe enables iContact to help more companies and causes succeed.

We’re proud to announce iContact Free Edition, a no-cost version of our email marketing and social marketing tool.

We believe that everyone needs a chance. As two entrepreneurs who set out to build a company while still in college, we can’t count the number of people who helped us get started.

For individuals, community organizations, and small businesses that are just starting out, we believe email marketing and social marketing should be free, easy to use, AND backed by great customer support.

Whether you use iContact Free Edition, iContact, or iContactPlus, we’re passionate about your success.”

Finally, here’s an awesome photo from a helicopter yesterday afternoon of our employees preparing to announce iContact Free Edition to the world by spelling out the word ‘free’ in our courtyard…

    Gotta give them credit for the PR stunt. :)

    Free is a whole ‘nother game. There are many “freemium” sites out there, including LinkedIn… and converting people form free to paid is hard.

    $1.00 a month is probably a much smarter starting point.. or six months free. but free forever? Bad idea.
