SendinBlue – Self-Managed Digital Marketing

Why pay someone else to create and manage the types of digital marketing campaigns you’re perfectly capable of handling on your own? With SendinBlue, users can take control over online marketing for their companies, by creating, sending, and tracking the impact of both marketing and transactional emails, as well as SMS campaigns.

Using SendinBlue’s drag-and-drop text editing tools, design the first email to be sent out as part of your company’s new marketing campaign. SendinBlue lets you customize your emails and then schedule your campaigns to launch either immediately or at a later date and time. The platform’s deliverability tools ensure that the emails you send out don’t get bounced back or stuck in spam filters. Larger organizations can even use SendinBlue’s dedicated IPs and add their own signatures to campaigns that SendinBlue sends on their behalf’s.

Results are everything to a business owner. SendinBlue understands this, which is why the application provides users with real-time information like interaction histories, open rates, click-through-rates, and bounce rates. Statistics can also be grouped together using the Google Analytics interface.
