Back in the day, before blogs where around, people used to subscribe to newsletters to get the latest information delivered to their inbox. I actually still subscribe to a few newsletters. However these days its very difficult to actually find good newsletters worth subscribing to. This is where iContact Community comes in! iContact Community uses a similar system to Digg, where the more interesting and relevant the content the iContact customers publish is, the more likely it will get votes from visitors leading to more exposure and more subscribers. The top ranked content in each category will show up on the community home page. All community content as well as the community profile will be indexed by Google and the major search engines, allowing publishers to get more visitors and subscribers.
iContact Community also allows email marketers to create a public profile, publicly archive their newsletters and blog posts, tag and categorize their newsletters and blog posts, get their content indexed in Google, participate in discussions with subscribers, and easily grow their opt-in lists.
Visitors to the iContact Community can vote on their favorite content, comment on content, view the top ranked content within each of the 18 categories like Entertainment, Politics, and Travel, create a public profile, discuss topics that interest them in the forums, and find new publishers who are creating email newsletters, RSS feeds, and blogs about topics they are interested in. It's an exciting experience to be able to vote on a newsletter that you feel has great content and see it move up in its category.
The iContact Community already has over 120,000 registered members and 212,000 pieces of content on it three days after launch. Check it out!
