Recommendation for Email Marketing

HELP! Need recommendation for Email Marketing to send bulk email campaign. Looking at Effective Email Marketing | Constant Contact - who do you give a thumbs up?

I do have an account with MailChimp which I find good but it doesn't allow you to import a third party list.

Many thanks,
Koolsteve

      Do you have to use Amazon SES with Sendy, or can you use another SMTP engine to send mail?

        Sendy is designed specifically for Amazon SES

          But you can now use Mandrill as well. Actually I think you can use other SMTP services besides Mandrill also but maybe not so easy to setup.

          But the Sendy software is quite limited in functionality compared to a more robust solution like ArpReach or OEMPro.

      I second using Sendy with Amazon SES. You can send newsletters to 10k subscribers for $1 with SES.

    Are these all opt in subscribers ? If not I wouldn't recommend as that's considered spam.

    GetResponse is really versatile for email marketing. They have different bands of monthly charges depending on the number of subscribers you have ($15 for up to 1000 subs to begin with).

    The drag and pull feature in their calendar allows high flexibility when it comes to planning your campaign, at the same time you get reported statistics on your clicked and opened rates.

    Most email autoreponders will not allow you to import your contacts if they weren't opted in through their systems in the first place, but with GetResponse you can do so.

    That said, please ensure that this list is permission-based (every subscriber must explicitly permit) and not leads that are purchased or rented, or you may risk getting your account suspended or reported.

    I use GetResponse, they have very clean interface. if you want they have a free curse on how to get your 1000 subscribers.
    you can see highly detailed statistics,
    they have a very cool software to create landing pages and forms in a very ease way of drag and drop , But it cost a monthly payment for each.
    the basic program is not very expensive.

    in addition I herd that infusionsoft is way better, but much more expensive (its not for beginners)
    Infusionsoft is a complete sales and marketing automation software for small businesses combining CRM, email marketing, lead capture and e-commerce.

    Hope I helped

    ActiveCampaign is great but if you need another option, you can go for Aweber.

    I STRONGLY suggest ActiveCampaign...


    ...but also Sendlane is good.

    It depends on WHAT you are going to do with the List, and how huge is this.

    If u need automation,etc...

    THE BEST autoresponder with a good R:R between price and functions is ActiveCampaign, also the support is good.

    But if u need only to send some newsletter u can go also with Getresponse.

    Every autoresponder has a trial period: use it and test it.

    AVOID Mailchimp this seems to be good cause it has a free period etc, but in the long term is the worst one.


    Sendinblue seems also good BUT i dont like it: why paying for the numbers of mails?
    It could appear a good choice at the beginning, but sooner you'll discover that the limit of the number of mail is a crucial aspect.

    One of the key of Email Marketing is the number of mails: depending on the actions and condition of every leads, why have a limit for this?


    In fact, the NUMBERS of leads is less important in comparision on HOW you nurture them, SO choose always an autoresponder which has no limit in sending emails.

    For uploading third party list into MailChimp make sure those lists aren't used other Mailchimp platforms and also divided your lists. I think, that will be work.

    Thanks

    Well, it seems that email marketing is the hottest stuff in the town. Being one of the most popular marketing channels, it's demand is rising with the passing days. You must be pretty much acquainted with the various email marketing tools that are widespread in the market. Plus, in the answers, people have mentioned about the different tools. Therefore, by now you have got some idea.
    However, I will gladly recommend you to opt for hybrid email marketing solution which is comparatively a new concept. One such tool that is present in the market is EasySendy Pro. It is a front end hybrid email marketing solution that has been specially designed to send bulk emails. Inside Pro, there are many existing SMTP servers. You will have to choose an SMTP server as per your choice from the given option and create an account with it. Consequently, you will also have to set up an account with EasySendy Pro. Once done with the steps, integrate both the software tools and start sending your emails.
    Being infused with the technology of micro-deliverability of email, Pro ensures that your emails land in the subscriber's inbox thereby promoting email open rate and click through rate. This, in turn, will also increase the flow of ROI.

    Active Campaign is great but they don't allow MMO offers.

    Infusionsoft and Ontraport are both amazing! (They're slightly high priced)

    I like Get-Response and Aweber too!

  • If it's a quality list of people who opted into your own page and not a list you bought, and you can provide information about how and where they came from, AWeber will let you import leads.
