How to cost effectively email 50,000 per month

5 replies
I'm buying a database of 50,000 emails from InfoFree and I want to email them 1x per month, or maybe every 3 weeks. Doing some research it appears that MailChimp or Constant Contact would be super expensive. How can I do this cheap or free?

I have an Office 365 account and Outlook with my own domain. How do I check my domain's SMTP send limit (it is purchased from GoDaddy)?

How can I track open rates and click through rate?

I was looking at this software called Send Blaster? Anyone use it? Is there a better one?

    I was looking at SendGrid and it seems they have a $20 plan & a $80 per month plan that would each fit my needs (100k sends/month) and the big difference is the $80 per month plan has a dedicated IP.. how much will that increase my inbox results?

    I think Sengrid would be a valuable resource because they have their own dedicated ip. I think it will help your deliverability results for that reason.

    That's a tough one.

    In the past, I've used a self hosted solution to mail over 50K subscribers.

    It worked really well for a few months, but then the inboxing rate dropped.

    Worth it while it lasted, though.

    Honestly, if these are genuine subscribers to your funnel, then having a service like Aweber or GetResponse is well worth it. The cost of having the subscribers becomes negligible.

    My advise is to use an autoresponder like getresponse or awaber.
    If you already have mailchimp use that!!

    They guarantee you the beswt in terms of service and so in terms of return of investmens!!

    The only problems you may have is with your 50,000 list mail, because buy a list often don t give you
    good target traffic, and most of your mail could be bounced!

    Try sendgrid. Then Install Mail Poet plugin on your site (you will want premium version like $100 Lifetime). Then integrate send grid with Mail poet. Send grid allows 12k per month free, but upgrading is not that expensive.
