Postmark

When we receive reports that a client has not received an email, Postmark allows us to review the handshake and whether the message was successfully processed and delivered. If the email was bounced for any reason, Postmark allows us to reenable the account to open the communication channel once again.

SendinBlue

SendinBlue is great for simple email marketing, especially for small businesses. It's very easy to get the account setup and create an email compared to other services like MailChimp. It's also very user-friendly for those who may not be technically savvy. If you have a much larger scale email list or regularly import lists from outside SendinBlue, then you may want to look elsewhere. SendinBlue is great if you stay within the system, but can cause trouble if you import email lists outside of the system.

SendinBlue

  • Fast newsletter delivery to a large subscriber base
  • Fair pricing allows small companies to get use of the features with a small subscriber base and then scale up as their subscriber base grows.
  • APIs allow you to fully automate the process of generating and delivering newsletters. My web staff updates the website information, and sends the newsletter from my website back end. They do not ever even have to log in to SendinBlue. This creates a level of simplicity that prevents errors.

Cons

Postmark

  • We have run into some glitches in their system that have causes messages to not get delivered or for delivery to be delayed. I'm not sure what causes this on Postmark's end but it makes for some very angry customers on our end.

SendinBlue

  • Would like to have emails sent directly from our server (without extra charge). We noticed recently emails now come from sendinblue.com vs. a server with a series of numbers so this is a definite improvement!
  • Would like to see our actual subscriber base number (total minus blacklist)
  • Was initially difficult to figure out how to create newsletter signup to match the layout of our website but eventually our developer figured out a workaround.
  • Sometimes when you click on the editing box, you end up going out to the hyperlink specified instead of edit box, this is sometimes annoying.

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.

Postmark has been an excellent solution for our business needs. We have been with them for years and have no intention of changing providers anytime soon. Support was excellent as we were getting started and their API documentation made implementation quick and easy

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

Postmark

We felt Postmark's focus on transactional emails and their use of shared domain reputation made them stand out. We also like their user interface and ability to have many virtual email servers. Pricing was competitive and after a trial we saw a big increase in deliverability rates. Therefore it was an easy decision to use Postmark over other providers.

*Previously our department was working with Mailchimp and it was a good experience. We were looking for something that would allow us to be known throughout the country effectively and we decided to implement SendinBlue as a new method of campaign automation in marketing since it has unique functions that make our campaigns look very attractive.

They have multiple options for upgrading bigger senders or if you need more emails sent in a month.

Return on Investment

Postmark

  • Many customers buy our product because of the messaging functionality. Having the ability to send and receive messages through our platform, while having them tracked in one place is a huge advantage.

SendinBlue

  • Deliverability: SIB protects their sending IP and this shows with the rate of delivery. Junk senders are cautioned, this is not the solution for you.
  • Simplicity: Cut the time it takes to get professional email campaigns out to your audience. Less time = less labor expense.
  • All in one solution allows you to capture and maintain both SMTP and SMS under one program and this has made segmentation and campaigning less annoying and tedious.
