Choosing a free bulk email service
You have a killer email marketing campaign locked and loaded. Now, how to send it to the 2000 or 2 million email addresses on your contact list? For most marketers, an email service provider (ESP) is the answer to reliably and effectively delivering mass email without the hassle or costs of trying to do it yourself. ESPs often provide email marketing software that helps you manage and deliver your messages.
However, using an email service doesn’t mean you’ll break the bank sending content to your subscribers. Both Mailgun and Mailjet offer comprehensive deliverability features and powerful marketing automation tools to ensure all your emails reach every intended person on your mailing list.
Mailjet, an email marketing platform, has a feature-rich email editor to help you build beautiful and responsive HTML email templates in minutes. Their drag-and-drop editor makes email creation intuitive and easy. Additionally, Mailjet's advanced email marketing features like A/B testing and personalization will help you fine-tune your campaigns. Move fast with Mailjet’s Real-Time Collaboration email builder to create campaigns at the same time as the rest of your team. The Linked Sections enable you to quickly and easily update a large number of email designs simultaneously.
Your bulk emails reach every intended recipient thanks to our unrivaled deliverability, and we make the process of creating your email campaigns intuitive, easy, and super fast.
What’s the difference between mass emails vs. transactional emails?
Most companies send both transactional and mass emails because they serve distinct functions:
Mass emails are sent according to your marketers’ schedule, either to every email address on your mailing list or to targeted segments. The message itself might be an email newsletter or promotion.
Transactional emails, on the other hand, are triggered by a customer action (say, a password reset or abandoned cart). Whether it’s the customer or the marketer prompting the send, the usefulness of your emailing software hinges on successful email delivery.
What key bulk email features does Mailgun offer?
Free mass email software isn’t worth much if it can’t reliably land your message in your subscriber list’s inboxes. Plus, support staff are just as important as the actual software. Mailgun has a powerful email software and support team ready to help you implement our services, perfect your emails, and start sending content. So what features separate the best free email senders from the so-so free plans?
At Mailgun, we provide the following services:
Deliverability: If you try to push through a bunch of bulk emails at once, your mass email may land in a spam filter or bounce back. We solve this problem with dynamic algorithms adjusting to things like Google’s handling of your emails and your sender reputation.
