Swiftpage has made a great leap forward with the Act product line by uniting emarketing with the power of Act and has included an Act Emarketing Basic Account with every Act v17 license.

The Basic Act Emarketing Account includes unlimited sends to 500 contacts per month. This easy-to-use emarketing tool allows you to send targeted email campaigns right from your database to a lookup of contacts, groups or companies.

Your Basic Act Emarketing Account comes with graphical reports that tracks valuable information about your campaigns including opens, clicks and bounces. Kick your campaign results up a notch by subscribing to the Call List feature for $15 per month. The Call List is a real-time display in Act of your campaign recipient scores allowing you to prioritize your follow-up.
