newsletters

Social networks and business collaboration apps have tried their best to reduce our dependence on email, but email seems to be with us to stay. And for good reason: it works good, for the most part, and you can email someone even if they’re on a different email service than your own. You sure can’t say that for social networks.

Sending bulk emails is a big part of digital marketing. Many have found that email newsletters help you sell new products and keep customers coming back better than almost any other form of marketing. With great email newsletter apps like MailChimp, TinyLetter, Campaign Monitor, Sendy, and more, it’s easier than ever to start sending your own email newsletter.

So, do you use a bulk email app, or do you never need to send out emails in bulk? What’s your favorite way to email tons of people at once? We’d love to hear your thoughts in the comments below!

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!

If you’d like to get started sending email newsletters your way for less money than ever, you just might want to get a copy of Sendy today. It’ll cost $59, but is currently available for just $40. That’s a one-time payment, and after you own a copy, all you’ll have to do is pay Amazon SES’ low rates to send emails.
