EZezine was birthed in 2003 by Lisa Micklin and Jopa (just Jopa). Together, and with requests from many clients, we were searching for a reliable and affordable ezine hosting solution. When we realized that there was nothing available that met with our standards, we set out to create our own software.
Several years and thousands of members later, we continue to evolve and grow our software to meet the market's ever changing needs and demands.
EZezine.com prides itself on catering to ezine content publishers, not to email marketers. Content publishers need and deserve a safe, spam-free environment to work in. Our goal is to offer this environment while assuring the safe and successful delivery of every member's ezine.
From Team to Tribe: In business, we hear over and over about team environments. We say fie on teams. At EZezine, we are bringing together a tribe of folks who revel in the communication opportunities of the times. Every tribal member from our support staff to our programmers, supports the vision of growing global communications so that the global tribe can expand. As our friend John says, "There is no 'I' in team." We like the "I", and respect all of our tribal members' individual perspectives, ideas, and visions.
Do you have skills and perspectives you would like to bring to the tribe? Contact us to see if we have a fit. We are always open to knocks on the tribal door.
Our company is based out of a remote mountain village in south-central Colorado, and our membership spans the globe.
We like to say that we are a small company with big software.
