Chris, to say that those growth statistics are impressive is a huge understatement! You are obviously meeting a significant need of both writers and publishers. Thanks, and keep moving forward!

We’re investing heavily this year to grow the lists by 5 times because permission-based targeted event-driven email is one of our top strategies to drive pre-qualified traffic back to the site.

Thanks Chris …

This is wonderful news for authors. I believe that you have created, by far, the most professional and effective article site on the Web today. If this year is an indication, next year is going to be amazing!

You know what I’d like to see? Something on ad placement within ezines. For example, I write a weekly ezine that includes an article. Underneath the article is where I place ads for my business – but, I wonder if I placed an at the beginning how it would effect results.

You know these email article alerts are very good and I use them to compile my Favorite Author Lists as I check out new articles each day and I would say on average I scan 20 articles and read about 10-15 every day. It is very excellent and that is how I became an article author, I became a reader first. One day, I said, “Hey, maybe I should write an article or two” and so I did; the rest is history I suppose. Great work Team EzineArticles.
