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.

The best scenarios would be email marketing campaigns such as eBlasts, Evites and newsletter/notifications. I believe Streamsend would be less appropriate for overall branding campaign and strategy.

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.

A lot of times if a product is working, switching and trying something new with affect productivity. Everyone knows how to use Streamsend and it's not broke, so why fix it?

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.

Constant Contact and Streamsend are very similar products. Cvent is just overall terrible and difficult to understand.

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.
