Amazon SES

As I said before, SES is ideal for outsourcing any and all e-mail message origination. Marketing e-mails, new user signup e-mails, and e-mails that notify engineers of service problems are all excellent use cases for SES. For startups, the fact that you get 10,000 free e-mails, just for signing up, makes it a no-brainer when in the early development stages of writing a program. Once the credentials are loaded into the code, you can forget about e-mail origination forever (almost)!

GetResponse

Choosing email marketing software is a personal choice: it's a matter of what clicks with you technically and aesthetically. If you don't need or want to embed video into your email campaigns, then GetResponse is as good of a provider as any. It's affordable, easy to use and the online tutorials are great.

Pros

  • DKIM signing for all messages. This absolutely maximizes the probability of a message reaching a user's inbox, and not the spam folder.
  • API *and* SMTP access, making it possible to connect any system to SES. No matter what programming language or what server, there is always a library for sending e-mail messages that is compatible with SES.
  • SES makes it trivial to send thousands of e-mails from known mail servers. No longer do you have to worry about your server's IP address being blacklisted because it originated too many e-mails.
  • Incredible credential management for increased security. With IAM, you can create API keys (or SMTP credentials) for each individual piece of an infrastructure, making debugging very easy.

  • The Email and Landing page drop and drag creator was poor and also not responsive for email. I would recommend adding snapping functionality at the minimum.
  • The lack of control over the GetResponse information and unsubscribe at the bottom of the email was unfortunate. It would be nice if we could change the color of the background and fonts to better match brand colors and templates being used.
  • Save searches are a bit clunky and can be difficult to find when you have a lot of them. There needs to be a search functionality for finding saved searches.

Alternatives Considered

I'd recommend SendGrid and MailChimp to most smaller business that can't dedicate engineers solely to their email pipeline. The price/value ration is fair and the tools are fairly flexible for the intended use cases. It's often a good idea to start to start there and only pivot later when needed.

Automational was discontinued. Customer service was much better with GetResponse than with Agile. Agile's customer service was very bad - made me feel inadequate, They treated me like a new customer even though I had been doing email marketing for over ten years. They severely limited my email marketing initially. I did not understand it and was arguing with an empty wall.
