I don't think it's well-suited for anyone. In my opinion, the low cost is not worth the extremely poor deliverability.

Pinpointe is perfect for managing large numbers of contacts, including gathering new contacts and storing them throughout your databases, which can further be broken into lists and then individual tags for sorting and sending. Where it really excels is in the email marketing sector. We are able to send as many as several hundred thousand emails per hour, making sure all of our customers get time sensitive marketing material quickly.

  • Depending on the amount, when I am in the middle of uploading a list of contacts I get bumped out and have to submit a request to increase my dataset. That being said, our company as a whole is happy with what Pinpointe provides us with as is.

They are quick to respond to requests, usually within an hour. If they don't have an immediate fix to a problem, they let me know what the status is and what they are doing about a request. In some cases, if the development team needs to be involved because a bug is found, they have fixed and patched the system same day. Rarely do I ever get that kind of customer support response with any other company. They don't have a premium support tier because they treat every request with the same level of professionalism and response time (again, to at least let you know it was received and an actual person is looking at it, even if they are busy with other requests).

I picked Mail250 because they seem designed for sending 1-time bulk mail for an affordable price.
Open rates for MailerLite, GetResponse,
ConvertKit, and SendPulse were all over 50%. Sender.net was extremely low at under 10%. Mail250 was around 10%, but also had an extremely high bounce rate of 10%.

Pinpointe is a great #2 for specialty campaigns. Our bounce rates were higher than with other providers. Pinpointe's detailed reports and interface are a step above the competition.

  • Our ROI has gone up significantly since using Pinpointe.
  • We are able to use the coding to implement a join form on our website directly so we don't have to download from our website and upload to Pinpointe each time we want to add our contacts.
  • Our emails show up white-labeled so it is our own branding on all emails.
