250ok

250ok is a great tool for companies that have recently switched ESPs to monitor inbox placement or for companies that historically have been having email deliverability issues and would like to learn about the root cause and improve. Unlike ReturnPath, 250ok doesn't offer certification, but honestly, you don't need certification if you follow the Gmail/Microsoft/AOL/Yahoo bulk sender guidelines. I haven't seen a company which significantly improved their results with that certification and I've been working for one major ESP for 7 years. 250ok is a good diagnostic/monitoring tool but it is not a panacea for those who continue to violate sender guidelines due to poor list/content management.

JangoMail

JangoMail is only appropriate if you are looking for a cheap emailer. It should not be used as a marketing automation tool, as it is only an email platform. You should look for a marketing email platform that allows you to create better looking emails and manage your contacts. There are way better tools out there.

Pros

250ok

  • They provide a wide-ranging tool to view your email templates in many different email clients under different circumstances. We used this tool to identify specific issues we couldn't test that a small subset of users had complained about.
  • The Seedlist Optimizer Tool does the legwork for you to identify which ESPs are used the most and gives you a custom seed list for testing.
  • The Campaign Diagnostics report shows immediate feedback after sending on how your email is performing and where you can improve in the future.

Cons

250ok

  • Within the 250ok dashboard, there are a few different types of tracking and monitoring tools that aren't explained well within the product. Their uses were explained during onboarding but we continue to go back to the self-help to confirm best practices. I hope they work on more contextual help to improve this experience.
  • While the product does work if you have shared IP addresses, it took us some time after launch to filter out other's email data that get included during monitoring.

JangoMail

  • There are no templates to create emails. There are no drag and drop features.
  • Reporting should contain necessary everyday metrics, such as click-thru rates!
  • Error messages are needed on things that you just can't know any other way.
  • System problems should be highlighted at the top of every page, not just the home page.

Green money is good, customers are good, and more customers who buy is great. Tools that give exposure and that help commerce happen are awesome. JangoMail is one of these tools

Alternatives Considered

250ok

After using Litmus for a few years, we enjoyed their feature set but were not pleased with price and feature changes. Email on Acid was a good choice for testing your email templates but didn't have enough features for email deliverability monitoring.Between Return Path and 250ok, we were interested in the whitelisting that Return Path offered, but could not get dedicated IP addresses required by them to move forward.

I inherited JangoMail. I would never have chosen it as a marketing tool. It is so primitive when you compare it to any of the other marketing email platforms. You need to be able to easily create good looking emails and send to various lists created within the platform

Return on Investment

250ok

  • Using 250ok, we were able to identify problem areas with specific email clients that we couldn't test manually (really old ones). Once solved, reactivated lapsed customers.

  • I use it for lead conversions, and it has been a positive experience.
