Ok, I’ve got 28,000 email addresses, what’s the cheapest way I can email the all at once?
Most email marketing software allow you to import lists.
Sendgrid… load 5k at a time.
If its marketing e-mails and not transactional / app related using sendgrid will most likely help you not make the inbox. If you do choose to use it, setup SPF, DKIM, and DMARC and pray
Thanks been using it for 2 years. Have a nice day.
I am just speaking from my own experience. Over the years, I have used pretty much every e-mail service provider and for bulk e-mails of 15k+ I found MailChimp has the best deliverability rates. The problem is when you send out 28k e-mails from a new account, you are going to hit spam quick. Without configuring your own e-mail server (which I don’t recommend), to get those e-mails into inboxes on the first e-mail, the best bet is MailChimp but its going to cost you. It also won’t last…after that first send, you will 99% most likely have enough spam complaints that the next e-mail will hit many spam filters (i feel like MailChimp sends your first e-mail on a white listed ip and then depending on unsubs / spam / open rates etc moves you to another ip). However, the good thing is you can start cleaning up your list this way, get rid of the unsubs and spam complaints. Sendgrid is a perfectly good solution if you are starting with under 10k emails that have opted in (and remember opting in), and then gradually building. I’ve tried multiple times to send out e-mail lists of around 19k (new account), and had low deliver-ability rates each time. Again, make sure you setup spf, dkim, and dmarc to help with your chances of staying in inboxes.
Just a note *I have NOT* tried Sendgrid dedicated IP, my experience is only with the shared IP. Dedicated IP may be a great option.
Not an SEO question. Just use Excel and Outlook.
Then don’t answer it.
Copy and paste all emails in the to field, click send.
Only problem then is who your server is located with as with Namecheap they restrict you to 250 emails per day.
Get Gsuite. You won’t be able to email all at once, but you can do 2000 a day.
I can’t believe I am going to answer this question, but here goes…
One of the comments mentioned MailChimp and all of the spam stuff, so read that first…
Set up an A name for your website, such as mail. or something of that nature.
Setup an alias email address from your subdomain that points to your main email.
Send until they block you.
Setup a new A name in your DNS, ie news.
Create an alias for the new subdomain email that points to your main email.
Sign up for a new MailChimp account.
Send as many emails as it takes to get banned for that account.
Rinse and repeat.
It’s worked for 3.5 years.
I would highly suggest you don’t email more than 50 a day or you’ll get marked as spam really fast.
AWS with email octopus.
1. cheap 2. fast 3. good
1 + 3 = a bunch of gmail.com accounts
2 + 3 = mailchimp
1 + 2 = sendgrid
Use Amazon SES
I will suggest you clean your email list. If it’s junk then use MailChimp it’s free. PM if you want to know exact method.
