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

SendFox is perfect for when you are needing to send emails irregularly to a medium-sized list and don't want high fees. Whilst there aren't fancy templates like other services, this can be perfect if you are just wanting to send simple, quick emails vs more in-depth graphical ones. It's great for smaller businesses as well due to the low cost.

  • Easy to send emails as an automated sequence or single blast email.
  • Can break customers into separate lists but still only charged per contact.
  • Charges as a lifetime deal for so many contacts rather than monthly.

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%.

Mailchimp costs a lot once you get into the 4000 contacts range and features that SendFox has integrated are in a higher cost plan from Mailchimp. Drip is in a similar range cost-wise. It costs more per month than I paid all up. For a business that relies on email marketing as an income strategy, these tools are perfect, but for my business which uses it intermittently to supplement things like group challenges, it's more applicable to go with a tool like SendFox.

Return on Investment
Mail250
  • Unable to use it due to poor deliverability
Read full review

  • It's been the service I've used for daily emails for group challenges - Meaning that I had a service that was cheaper than others AND was reliable. When the customers got the emails reliably, I retained them, customers.
  • It has been less flexible in terms of customization - This hasn't had a tangible benefit but may have had a lead-on effect of the emails not always looking as professional to the customer.
  • It is much cheaper than other services meaning I've saved likely $2000+ based on the size of my email list (which is a lot for my small business!).
