How to make sure that you’re getting your free email newsletter when you subscribe to The Lad newsletter.
The Lad has made a lot of headlines lately with their new e-commerce platform, and the news that it is now offering the ability to generate e-mails by simply using the Google Chrome browser has created a lot more interest than it initially anticipated.
According to Google Chrome developer Patrick O’Rourke, who was instrumental in getting The Lad’s new ecommerce service launched in October of last year, the app was launched to offer users an alternative to spam and malware.
“We have seen an increasing amount of spam and fraud in the e-newsletter space, and in order to keep it in check, we need to be able to use different techniques to keep the spam and fraudulent content out of the newsletter,” O’Reynolds said in a recent interview with The Lad.
“So we thought it would be a good idea to create a tool that allows people to generate their own e-letter, without the need to have Google Chrome installed.
The app is free to download and requires no additional software.”
O’Reylkes continued by saying that the app will be available to download for free for developers and anyone who wants to get started.
“You can also opt to get it for a small fee by creating a free account and subscribing to the newsletter, which includes a Google Chrome account, and then sending an email to the address you set in your subscription.”
The Lad’s e-copy is a combination of a single email signature with a “copy” field to make it easy for someone to read.
The signup form also lets you select a format for your email signature, and once you have created your signature, the user can add it to the end of the email.
While the eCMS is a free tool, O’Reilly says that the company is also looking into making some money by selling ads through the tool.
“We’re definitely considering selling ads on the app,” he said.
“It’s something we’ve been talking about for a while, but we’ve had some success with that so far.”
The app is still in the testing phase, but O’Leary says that he hopes to be open-sourcing the tool sometime in the next week.
He added that he is open to suggestions on how to make the app better, but that he will be keeping an eye out for those that are willing to share their feedback.
