2nd place was given to Joomlashack, a team of designers, developers and technicians in the Joomla community, which came up with JContact. They received $2,000 cash. Barrie North, a user and designer of JContact explained: â€œWe have been long-time fans of iContact. We built a component called JContact that leverages the new iContact API to integrate Joomla registration with iContact, and uses best industry opt-in practices to do so. We also gave it away for free!â€
We are flattered that iContact like our email marketing component as much as we do! One key feature is that JContact will only add users to iContact lists after they have confirmed their email, thus reducing spam sign ups and increasing opt-in quality.
