Campaign Monitor vs Elastic Email

Question: What is Campaign Monitor?

Answer: Campaign Monitor is a straightforward email marketing tool that enables marketers to send beautiful and personalized emails, creating an easy way for readers to grow engagement with your list. You can customize templates, drag-and-drop builder features help you design the perfect message without any technical expertise needed! With their segmentation feature on hand, you’ll be able to deliver targeted content based off of engagements happening within your newsletter so nothing goes unnoticed.

Question: What are journeys?

Answer: A journey is a series of steps that can be triggered by any subscriber-related event. There are three types: Delay, Email and Condition. Delay means to add some time in between the first step and the following one so they will happen closer together or at different times than what was originally planned for them; email sends an automated message after each subscribed action with information about it; condition has specific rules like ’if this happens then do something else.’

Question: What are smart transactional emails?

Answer: With smart transactional emails, you can make beautiful and responsive email designs quickly. You can also use templates made for your marketing campaigns then tweak them to suit. The output of these messages are hosted by our servers so there’s no need to store the message or images yourself potentially removing the requirement that a website be deployed every time an update is made.

Question: What are classic transactional emails?

Answer: Transactional emails are a necessary part of running any successful business. These emails, which include confirmation messages and order notifications for example, typically require an action from the recipient (e.g., following a link to complete their purchase). However not all transactional email is created equal! There’s classic transactional email that you host on your own servers - when sending this type of message content stays stored at our servers while metadata goes back with your company once it has been viewed or clicked by recipients within 30 days after being sent. Classic transactions also allow grouping so you can get granular reporting data without having to use multiple APIs!

Question: What campaigns can I run within Campaign Monitor?

Answer: A campaign involves sending a single email to your recipients, either immediately or by scheduling it to send later. Both types of campaigns you can create and send with our application include a regular campaign (sent once), A/B test campaigns (send twice: one as HTML and the other in plain text). You’re not able to use any different formats outside of HTML or text like PDFs, Microsoft Publisher files — only these two file types are supported.

Question: How do I choose a ‘from’ name?

Answer: You need to choose a name or title that will be recognizable to your subscribers. Often, this is the company’s name or perhaps the product/service you are providing information about for them. In most situations it’s better if you use an organization like ‘ABC Company’ rather than using someone’s individual identity such as Madonna unless they ARE their own brand and there is no other logical choice. If so, follow up with a comma then ABC Corporation (or whatever entity) afterwards.

Question: Why are no-reply addresses not a good option?

Answer: It is important not to appear uninterested when sending emails. Sending from an anonymous email address will make recipients feel ignored and can be frustrating if they need to reach out for something, or even bad news in the long-term as it may affect delivery rates of your message. The way a user engages with your email - including replying back - determines where you’ll end up on their inbox; putting an e-mail address out there could attract its fair share of autoreplies and inappropriate responses while also opening the door open for meaningful interaction with customers who are eager enough to have contact through this medium.

Question: What is Elastic Email?

Answer: Elastic Email is an all-in-one email marketing service provider to help you create, send, and track professional, marketing, transactional, and automated email campaigns.

Question: How does Elastic Email work?

Answer: Our service is designed to make email marketing easy. With our intuitive drag and drop interface, users can quickly create emails, send them to contacts, and see detailed reports on how their email campaigns perform. As easy as 1-2-3!

Question: Is Elastic Email GDPR compliant?

Answer: Yes! All of our services are fully compliant with GDPR regulations. We use the highest security measures to ensure that our customers' personal data is safe and secure.

Question: What is Elastic-Email?

Answer: Elastic Email is a Canadian-Polish company, founded in 2010. After many years of providing customers with email services, today Elastic Email has only one goal: to provide the best possible experience for all our clients when it comes time for them to send and manage their campaigns. With an SMTP Relay, robust HTTP API, intuitive user interface that’s compatible on any device you use throughout your day (including desktop computers), 24/7 global support from people who live near or far away from where you are right now so they can always speak your language fluently if need be! We’re here whenever we aren’t sleeping - which isn’t very often because sleep doesn’t sound like much fun - but I digress... Pricing designed specifically by us.

Question: How can I export my contacts?

Answer: If you want to export a particular selection or edit a contact, select it by using the check boxes next to each address. To choose all addresses click on the arrow icon next to ‘Email’ and then scroll down until you see an option for ‘Select All’. Once you’ve made your selections, look under More Actions in order find Export - this will let you pick out a file format (PDF/Excel) and also give an optional .zip compression. When you click ‘Export’, you will then be redirected to the Exports page.

Question: What does the Nth Selection tool do?

Answer: The Nth Selection tool generates a specified number of lists. Each one containing an equal number of randomly distributed contacts. This is very useful if you have a big list that you want to divide into smaller parts for sending out your campaign! Sending the same message to all people at once can sometimes be problematic when it comes time to track results, so this option allows us more flexibility in how we send our messages by giving ourselves the opportunity for incremental improvement along with better tracking methods and statistics data on each segment’s respective response rate as well. First navigate over towards Contacts>Lists where there are many options available but today we’re going to be looking specifically at ‘Nth Selection Lists’. Give the lists series a name and specify the number of lists you’d like generated. The maximum amount of lists you can create is 10.

Question: How can I upload my contacts to Elastic Email?

Answer: You can add contacts via a CSV upload. Please note that the .csv file you upload has to be in UTF-8 encoding format. Making sure the encoding of your file is correct will guarantee it’s correctly recognized and formatted as CSV. The acronym CSV stands for Comma Delimited Values, which are values separated by a comma within an open text document. Navigate over to your Contacts screen and select ‘Upload Contacts’ from ‘Add Contacts’ drop down menu. Click on ‘Upload contacts from File (zip, csv, json, xml)’ then simply drag and drop the desired .csv into the selection field shown. The upload tool supports one single CSV file or a list compressed into zip form with multiple entries. You can then customise the contact forms.

Question: What is a Blacklist and what to do if I’m on it?

Answer: Blacklist is a list of IPs that have been reported as being spammers. DNSBL and RBL can help identify these spamming IPs, which are then used by ISPs to determine whether or not your mail will be accepted. It’s quick and easy for anyone with an internet connection to create their own blacklist; there seem to be quite a few out there! Elastic Email’s team of Delivery Experts are always on the lookout for blacklists, and will do anything they can to get themselves off. They also work with major ISPs who want to have their email servers added as well so that all messages sent by them don’t end up in spam folders or deleted altogether!

Question: How do I ensure the best delivery of emails?

Answer: When you want to send an email, it’s a good idea to use the appropriate tone of voice. If one is looking for quick responses and engagement from recipients then they should try using a fun approach with their emails or at least keep them lighthearted in nature. The goal is not just about reaching someone but also being able to establish yourself as trustworthy so that the recipient has faith in opening your messages when sent later on down the line! A well-received message can lead to a better reputation with the recipient’s servers, which will result in more positive email delivery. It is as simple as that!
