We use Amazon Simple Email Service to auto-respond to users that submit messages through a contact form. We are using Amazon Simple Email Service with our self hosted python application to send our marketing emails, get feedback for our services, and Hackathons.

Sendinblue

Sendinblue works openly with transactional email for the case of sales operators, so it is quite good in the commercial area. Therefore we want to recommend it to be used by salespeople who need a fast service when sending and collecting information about sales transactions. Sendinblue could have a huge reach if you work not only from emails, but also from social networks, mostly because it adapts to different data collection formats, which ultimately serve to obtain more varied analytical reports regarding the type of audience you hope to reach, and the number of customers you want to establish as the main target of the campaign within these social networks. Since the platform shows a fairly high level of security, since from the beginning of its use there have not been any kind of mishaps with information leaks or losses based on accidents (which could lead to the termination of such meetings), it can also be said that it serves to keep the content of past campaigns protected without any intrusion as mentioned above.

Pros

Amazon SES

  • Amazon Simple Email Service is a much lower cost than most other solutions and truly makes cost a non-factor in most situations where we consider implementing it.
  • The API is so well documented that implementing Amazon Simple Email Service in nearly any application or codebase is achievable with basic coding knowledge.

Sendinblue

  • Sendinblue's customer evaluation system is perhaps the most important point offered by the platform, since it serves to create delimitations regarding the type of customer that we plan to get for the company, and that can meet the payments corresponding to our work methodology. In other words, it can be moldable and adaptable to our sales style.
  • Sendinblue allows us to handle not only emails, but also several types of messages as an autoresponder once customers have contacted us, where we announce that the information has been properly received and that we will soon review the information and contact them directly, allowing them to become familiar with the company even during waiting times.
  • We have our own image library, where we can access different types of images depending on what we need for our specific campaign, or in any case, if we have already added an image to the Sendinblue platform that was not there by default, it is possible to access it again from the library.
  • The best thing about the support assistance offered by Sendinblue is that it is possible to receive answers from them at any time during the average working hours, in which we can receive Sendinblue usage data regarding doubts or conflicts we have at a technical level when developing some platform mechanics, and which have been easy to solve.
  • We are pleased with the fact that Sendinblue is such a good software for executing marketing plans. Sendinblue has managed to adapt to our needs as marketers by adapting to all the customer evaluation and follow-up operations we require in order to maintain an acceptable level of sales, and it's all thanks to the practicality of working within the platform.

Cons

Amazon SES

  • Even if you do not want to spam, you cant send an email to the unverified users.
  • Integration with other services is a bit tricky. To watch the trail, handle bounced emails, save emails on S3 are not straightforward to implement.
  • When you want to send a lot of emails (in bulk), it takes a significant amount of time.

  • The customer support could use some improvement. When our company moved to SendinBlue, we already had a large email list to import. SendinBlue had to verify the list to ensure it was legitimate which is fine, but we received no email notification of needing verification and I didn't know until I tried sending an email. Everything up to that point indicated that the account was fine.
  • The email design feature could also use some work. It's fairly simple in it what it offers and I would have liked to see more content features. It would also be nice if they added a feature to preview the email on a mobile device.

I am a web designer and systems admin. I have not found anything with this system that was hard to use. Other systems make it hard to do simple tasks and is very limiting. SendinBlue doesn't limit you.

Everything loads very quickly, it saves as you go along so you're unlikely to loose work if your computer fails. Reports are there immediately too so you're able to act quickly on customer engagement.

We did not have the need of contacting Amazon for support. The documentation they provide is of great quality. Examples are easy to follow. One thing to have into consideration is we didn't have the premium support for AWS, so I can't provide details on how good or bad this service is, but in general, the basic support I had was great.

These people helped me identify errors when setting up DKIM and were more than helpful in trying to diagnose low open rates with a few campaigns identifying where improvement can be made and how to more effectively manage contact lists. The support is excellent.

If you follow all the steps of the setup process they give you, any one can set this up in about 1 - 2 hours.

Alternatives Considered

Amazon SES

We have used a dozen services. They are almost all more expensive. Some force you to wait one week to approve/deny your account if they suspect that the email database is not legal. I have very important clients with legal databases that were rejected by other companies and could send emails from Amazon SES without problems.
Francisco Mosse | TrustRadius Reviewer

Sendinblue

Sendinblue has the most flexible pricing plans that I found suitable for any kind of business. It has the most effective communication system for teams which is important for coordination between teams when collaborating on projects. This platform is also most effective in customizing Facebook ads and monitoring the performance of these ads to effectively adjust accordingly.

Return on Investment

Amazon SES

  • SES is still more cost effective than other email services like Mailgun.
  • Unless we have a high-traffic month, staying within the free tier is very nice for our bottom line.
  • Not having to spend time worrying about SES reliability saves us frustration and money.
Joe Hakooz | TrustRadius Reviewer

Sendinblue

  • Our previous mail client didn't sent all the emails within a short time frame which caused issues for us in terms of our advertisers. Switching to SendinBlue was very helpful in this aspect, and the ease of creating and editing newsletters have made us much more timely with our newsletter blasts.
