As a full-service marketing agency, one of my deliverables is providing maillists for my clients, both in a newsletter format and a news/announcement/text format. I was one of the very early subscribers to Dada Mail, more than 15 years ago, if memory serves. I bought a “lifetime” subscription and have installed the program on dozens of sites over the years. My oldest version, still functioning, is 3.3 and I recall updating that one, so best guess is that I owned one of the very first versions.
My preferred method of delivery is to create a responsive web page for the content. For some clients, I have set up an admin back end so they can fill in the content within the framework. For others, I write the content. Once the page is uploaded to server, I (or client) use the “Send a web page” feature in Dada for a clean, easy delivery. The web page is then included in a listing on the client’s website for future review by new visitors.
Over the years, I’ve watched as Dada has grown and grown. The features are very impressive. I really appreciate the database component for the listeroos. Either I didn’t know how to do the mysql feature in the beginning, or it was a later add-on, but I take full advantage of it now and it is a lifesaver for managing the list.
I have run into a few things that were a puzzle, especially when a new version came out, but Justin has always been patient with me and responds immediately.
I have recommended Dada to all my colleagues, on several lists. I am 100% satisfied not only with the program, but with the extreme level of personal customer support when something eludes me.
Thanks, Justin, for your product and for your support.
