AI

If you run any sort of business online, community, work with social media or even just a hobby blogger – you’ve probably got an email list to stay connected with your audience and fans.

You are probably familiar with the basics of list building and email marketing too – but are you using your list the best possible way? Are you using the smartest email marketing strategy possible? Probably not. That’s where SendPulse comes into play.

SendPulse uses an AI platform (Artificial Intelligence) and other unique features that automatically maximize email Open Rate. In addition to taking the “smart” approach to email – SendPulse is cheaper than other options such as MailChimp, Aweber, and others, quicly making SendPulse the easy choice for marketers – saving you money that could be investing back into your email marketing for more results.

So What Exactly Is SendPulse?

SendPulse creates a behavior user profile for each subscriber based on their communication preference, timezone, content, layout, product purchases and many other unique data points. The user profile is then used by the AI platform to not just create the best experience for each user, but to also understand user behavior in groups with a “lookalike” audience. Using dynamic grouping, the AI platform is able to draw a fuller picture of user predictive behavior and create content with best monetization potential.

SendPulse is an integrated platform that offers bulk email, bulk SMS messages and FREE web push notifications. You get a better overall “Email Marketing Package” deal since they offer the largest quota on its free plans for email and SMTP services and with the least functionality restrictions.

Getting Started

If you are sold already, you can choose the pricing plan that fits your list size/budget – but for the rest of us all you need is the Free account. SendPulse is very easy to use, as you can expect you don’t need to have any Design or Coding experience to send beautiful emails that convert. All the features that you have grown accustom to in similar email marketing apps in the past are there for your convenience, plus new great features that you probably didn’t expect.
