Advertising without frequency is rarely effective. Autoresponders - Reports of the death of email have been greatly exaggerated. Everybody receives email and knows how email works. Every website should provide email subscription. Emails sent to opt-in subscribers will have an open rate of about 30% and a click through rate of approximately 10% which is excellent. I use an autoresponder service to maintain my database and deliver my email.

Joitske Hulsebosch

It gives you the opportunity to build an online platform in a super-user-friendly and easy way! With sharepoint, after all efforts, you get very un-userfriendly features; there is no email alert with content, there is no way to see a whole thread at once without clicking about 10 times, etc. A disadvantage of Ning could be the advertisements, but if you pay some money, it will be removed. Via my husband and Checklist, a Dutch blog , I found Ning.
