About 71% of our new EzineArticles members sign up for the free training that we’ve provided on the signup page. We’ve always hosted this with our own internal systems, but bounce handling was a serious concern until now.
A month ago, we upgraded our email list servers with an enterprise feature called “triggered & sequential” that allows us to duplicate the AWeber experience on the same platform that we already deliver millions of new article email alerts to our permission-based members… so we keep the reporting and control in-house and we have full hard bounce management to keep deliverability high (It’s evil to continue to email to addresses that bounce back hard undeliverable and if not managed right, leads to becoming blocked).
In conclusion, we’re not an ESP (Email Service Provider) for hire, but AWeber is and I’d highly recommend them.
The backstory: I was at a conference with the CEO of AWeber and noticed he had his brand on his socks. Hadn’t seen that before and he sent me a pair to wear. Nice guy… and we both enjoy biking. Yes, that is my size 12 foot in the photo taken today in my office.
