Now we have services like amazon ses, sendgrid, postmark etc.. that offer the same level of sophistication. So is it time to move over to self hosted solutions instead of services like aweber?
For eg, in the case of amazon ses, they have the technology to ensure that mails get delivered. They are experts at it. They do deliver billions of mails to their customers and sure know what they are doing. So is the case with sendgrid and the like.
So is it time to move over to self hosted solutions? The advantages are immense. You control the list, you can integrate easily with your existing systems and so on and significantly cheaper.
If the only advantage in using aweber & co is for deliverabilty and tech issues, with new services like the ones listed above isin't self-hosting the better option? You get the best of both worlds?
Do you see any other advantage to the hosted services over self service?
