There are 2 ways to obtain the user details
- Website & Product Enquiry
This is the easiest and simple way to capture the user information. In this instance only the name, email address will be effectively harvested for the purpose of the Product Specials system
- User Registration & Product Request
This is a more indeep process whereby we will ask more information to profile and categorize every user. eg.: fax, tel, region, physical address, type of work, etc...
As a complementary feature, the "Product Request" will allow the user to tell us specifically what type of product he is interested in at this point of time.
Subscribe to our Newsletter
In both case described above, this checkbox must be included. It is illegal in most part of the world to send unsollicited email.
This checkbox will ensure that you are legally compliant to the rules and regulations concerning the sending of newsletter.
Remember that if a user does not check the "Subscribe to our Newsletter
" during the recording process, we are not allowed to send him any newsletter at anytime. But according to our experience, about 50% of the users would like to receive your newsletters and/or monthly product specials.
Other Newsletters Systems

You then simply need to import this excel sheet in your internal CRM system or into any other emailing system offering an import facility.
