Amazon SES

Amazon Simple Email Service could be used to target user engagement just like SNS notifications. This could be an alternative where the user might need to have some registration information, password reset emails, marketing emails etc. It is less appropriate if you want to map a domain name on top of amazon.com domain name as its clearly visible on which service is being used to send out emails.

Pros

Cons

  • It could be more user-friendly for non-tech-savvy people.
  • I've praised that it does not have any unnecessary features. However, some people could use implemented tools.
  • Initial limit is too low but you can lift it with no issues.

Alternatives Considered

SES is a much lower level technical tool than the other solutions we've used in the past with the exception of Mailgun. We've found SES to actually be much easier to use than Mailgun, although not as powerful. A good way to explain the difference between MailChimp, Constant Contact, or Campaign Monitor and SES is that you could literally create those other services using SES. For all I know, they might use SES as their sending agent, while their value add is email lists, HTML composition, and subscribe forms.

Mailup has hands down the best editor for creating responsive emails, I've tried almost everything out there and this is the best, I recommend this to colleagues all the time!

Return on Investment

  • We've been able to quickly implement mailchimp-like email sending into our products (our customer can send mass emails to their constituents) at a fraction of the cost of more robust services like mailchimp, all while making our product look more professional.
  • Our services that leverage SES are entirely white labeled, which increases customer confidence.
