Mail250
I don't think it's well-suited for anyone. In my opinion, the low cost is not worth the extremely poor deliverability.

The best scenarios would be email marketing campaigns such as eBlasts, Evites and newsletter/notifications. I believe Streamsend would be less appropriate for overall branding campaign and strategy.

Pros
Mail250
  • Affordable
  • Relatively easy to use
  • Support was fine
  • Has some attractive features like email verification
Read full review
Streamsend
  • Streamsend reports allows us to see who is opening our email blasts and it even pinpoints how many viewers then go onto look at our social media sites and website.
  • Streamsend allows you to go back and review past email blasts. This prevents me from creating marketing material similar to what I have done in the past.
  • The site shows you who's email address was undeliverable. This helps me to weed out any old e-mails or individuals who requested to block the blasts.

The renewal process is easy and doesn't require much thought. Our accounting team already has Streamsend as an approved vendor. We are happy with Streamsend and how it works. Switching email systems would require training and a learning curve that will be difficult to schedule in a busy department. The quality and reliability of Streamsend is something our team and attorneys trust.

Alternatives Considered
Mail250
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%.

I do not like the Constant Contact interface at all, and find Streamsend to be a modern and suitable alternative to the popular MailChimp.

Return on Investment
Mail250
  • Unable to use it due to poor deliverability
Read full review
Streamsend
  • I saw an impact on our ROI when using Streamsend for our weekly newsletters, since we used them as a redirect back to our website for new business
  • The only negative impact I can think of would be the loss of some our registrants through our email database. Some thought that we sent out Eblasts and newsletters to frequently.
  • It did help with faster lead conversion as we saw higher traffic and visitors to our website through direct click-through from our email campaigns
