J!Contact is an integration of Joomla and IntelliContact. With over 10,000 customers, IntelliContact is a leading on-demand email marketing service. IntelliContact allows organizations of all sizes to easily create, send, and track email newsletters, RSS feeds, surveys, and autoresponders.
In the web today, if you have a website, then its more than likely that you need to be sending out emails. You might have read some of our reviews at Compass Design about various email solutions. We have reviewed both Joomla email components and hosted email software. We are a big fan of IntelliContact. We actually use it ourselves for our email needs. So we decided to build a complete integration using IntelliContact’s powerful API.
J!Contact solves the two biggest problem of Joomla newsletters, CAN-SPAM compliance and larger lists. If you have larger lists, you need the specialized deliverability features of a hosted solution. However, this can lead to problems with making sure users stay unsubscribed to comply with the CAN-SPAM act. We have solved this problem through the IntelliContact API. When users register on a Joomla site, or through Community Builder or SMF, they will be added to an IntelliContact list as defined in the configuration. If a user unsubscribes, they are permanently added to IntelliContact’s unsubscribe list and will NEVER get any future emails.
