    Hi guys,

    Let me try making your Thursday super wonderful. :)

    I joined BHW almost two years back and have read many wonderful email marketing posts here. They usually talk about Sendy, MailChimp, Sendgrid etc.. MailChimp, Sendgrid are nice tools but highly costly when it comes to sending more emails frequently.

    But nothing can beat the affordability and reliability of Amazon SES. I have heard Amazon SES works best when you want your emails in the Priority tab of your subscribers.

    It can easily cost you $149 or more to send 100K emails using any well-known email marketing tools like MailChimp etc. With Amazon SES, it costs just $10 to send 100K emails.

    Sendy works in integration with Amazon SES and hence really affordable. But Sendy needs reliable online hosting and technical knowledge for setting it up correctly.

    But what about those who don't have the technical knowledge or don't want to pay extra for recurring server costs? Let me tell you a new way.

    Recently, I discovered a Desktop app called MailSwift which is similar to Sendy. But it can be installed on your windows or Mac computer. Sounds fantastic? To me too :):)

    I never knew about any such tools ever before. The most affordable tool was Sendy for till now. Well, let me tell you the exact way to use it and have your own bulk-email machine on your own computer.

    1. Go to https://mailswift.io/#buy and buy this App. You just need to pay once to buy this tool and you will receive lifetime support and updates.

    Thankfully there is a lifetime deal going on for a limited time. With coupon code LIFETIME you can get $299 Pro plan for just $39 and $749 Agency Plan for just $79

    [​IMG]

    The main difference between both plan is - Agency plan comes multiple sender identities while Pro plan comes with a single sender identity. So, I suggest you buy Agency Plan to make it future proof.

    2. Once purchased, connect MailSwift with Amazon SES using the Access Key ID and Secret Key. For this, open MailSwift App, go to New – Sender Identity and register Amazon SES with appropriate key details.

    If you don't have Amazon SES account. Fellow BHW member ksk71119 have described the method of signing up and getting Access Key ID and Secret ID in this thread really well

    3. Once set up, you can create a new email from Blank or import custom HTML from outside.

    [​IMG]

    4. Once the email is created, now you can load .csv file of your contact list to send emails.
    Here you will notice two good features –

    – Do not send “To” emails in disposable/high bounce domains

    – Do not send “To” emails in nonexisting TLDs (Ex: .con)

    MailSwift team keeps updating the list of disposable/high bounce domains and provide an option to avoid sending emails to any of these domains. Also, if there are any non-existing TLDs like .con ( not .com), it will automatically skip these domains from your emails list.

    [​IMG]

    5. It's time to track your emails. With 'Real-time Progress Screen’ feature. you can see accurate send speed, the number of emails attempted, sent and failed in real time as your campaign is being completed.
    [​IMG]

    Once the campaign complete, you can check the performance of your campaigns. It creates a beautiful report which displays data like emails sent, deliveries, unique opens, unique clicks, bounces, rejects and spam complains.

    [​IMG]


    Here is video demo of this whole setup that found on this site.



    6. That's it, with just a one-time cost of MailSwift and super affordable price of Amazon SES ( $0.10 per 1000 emails ), you have just created your own email marketing machine, right on your computer.
    Now, send emails and win new customers. :)

    Happy Emailing. :)

    PS: I will update this article if I got any more info about this tool. If you know about any other similar tools, let us know in the comment section.

    Ha ha ha... thanks. this looks super cool when I checked it. Was able to create, send and track emails perfectly well. But would surely love to hear more from the community. Like proxified.62563 said, I will also look forward to hearing more from email experts here.

    Your welcome. :) I am looking forward to expert comments as well.

    Hi Horhus,
    Let's consider for a moment that I am the founder of Mailswift ( I wish if I were), does that mean, I can't share an info or use case of this tool if it's indeed valuable for the community?

    I know how BHW operates and I respect that. Do let us know if you own or know about any other alternative of this tool and I will edit my post and name your tool first before mentioning MailSwift. :)

    Your welcome. :)

    That would be correct; you would not be permitted to openly advertise your product or service without paying the forum.

    I don't for one second think that you are involved with the service and am glad you shared this as it can help a ton of the marketers in the community.

    Hi guys,

    Just a note- If any of you buy this tool and then contact their support for any kind of queries etc, don't tell them that you came to know about the LIFETIME coupon code from BlackHatWorld forum.

    This code is nowhere mentioned on their public site and was shared only within some closed communities ( and with early adopters). If they came to about this code being shared in bigger communities like this, they may disable or void it before it's last day. So, use it with care and as soon as possible.

    Also, if any of you bought this tool and it didn't work as expected, let others know. It worked for me really well but I checked it will my small email lists. Let us know how it performed for mass emailing.

    Cheers.

    For $79 it's tempting - I'm going to be looking at emailing for backlinks/guest posting opportunities. Is the deliverability of Amazon SES good for Gmail...etc?

    Hi Bread, Sadly, I have no idea about using Amazon SES with/for Gmail. But generally speaking, one should never use ordinary Gmail or yahoo mail for any emailing purpose other than personal usage, in such case, you will have deliverability issue with any kind of SMTP server.

    I will wait for the email marketing experts' comment on this though.

    Hi Roboxit,

    I don't own or sell MailSwift. It's a pretty public tool recently launched by the team of 'YourFirstInvestor'. I use ProductHunt a lot and have seen this tool in their upcoming section. I have only shared here the info since I liked it and thought it can be suitable for this community.

    For any kind of queries or support, please directly contact the founders using their site. Don't mention BlackHatWorld while asking for the support questions. You may say, I came to know about this from ProductHunt Ship to apparently save this lifetime offer for BHW community.

    ProductHunt is not into ecommerce or affiliate marketing. PH is the community of entrepreneurs where they share new, unique and amazing products/tools/startups every day. Thanks.
