It is definitely worth the commercial account because then you can create unlimited high res videos which you can burn to DVD and play on a standard DVD player. My clients go CRAZY for these. A great way to boost the value of a package, as incentive for timely ordering or to increase revenue as an upsell.

I use Constant Contact for managing my mailing list. It is easy to add people myself. Plus it is easy for other people to add themselves. I can track who opened my newsletter, what links were clicked on, and how people heard about us so easily. It is an industry standard service so people have heard of it and aren't nerveous about sharing their email address. Click on the link above to get as free 30 days when you pay for your first month.
