Email newsletters can still be one of the most effective marketing strategies. When you send out an email campaign, you’re sending a message directly to people who are already interested in your products and services: current customers, fans of your brand, and people who are considering buying your products. The only problem is, email newsletters can get pricey to send. With most email services, you’d spend over $100 to send out email newsletters if you’re contacting more than 10,000 subscribers.
How about sending out 10,000 emails for just $1? Does that sound better to your ears? How about getting the same features, with even more flexibility, and still saving that much money? Sounds like Sendy might be what your business needs.
Our weekly sponsor this week is Sendy, a new self-hosted web app that makes it simpler and much cheaper to send email newsletters, using Amazon’s AWS simple email service.
If you’re wanting to send out email newsletters to thousands of customers, most email services will work out quite expensive. You’ll spend $200 at MailChimp or $105 at Campaign Monitor to send out 10,000 emails. With Amazon SES, you could send that many emails for just $1. The problem is, Amazon SES is a backend service for bulk-sending emails, not something you could just start sending emails with quickly.
That’s where Sendy comes in. It’s a self-hosted web app that you run on your own server or hosting service that lets you manage email lists and send rich emails through Amazon SES. You’ll be able to manage multiple newsletters, keep up with subscribers, and see detailed reports about every part of your email campaign. It’s got everything you could want from a full-featured email newsletter web app, one that you control 100%.
Go Get It!
