Is what we recommend to customers as we don't support mail services on our systems (too much of a hassle to get working) Have heard some really good feedback about them they do subscription and pay as you go/ one offs.

I have been using mailchimp and i love it! Thanks for that. My company has purchased salesforce

They want to send out mailers and built a database of clients. track who opens mailers etc. I know that mailchimp can do all this, but I dont understand whats so great about salesforce? Isnt it just a platform to collect data like mailchimp? Yet its a lot more expensive!

The reviews for sales force are good, and i have read that you can integrate mailchimp into salesforce. But i dont quite understand what the difference is between them?

From what I understand Salesforce is just a Contact management system, it's meant to organize your business contacts and categorize them into stuff like leads, enterprise businesses, midsize busineses, etc. I know they use it at work as a way to keep a centralized system of all of our customer's and what products they use.

Ummm... Can you please explain to me what these services are used for? Mass emails, yes, but don't you need to punch each individual email address in? Why not just use gmail and save a list if you need to punch each address in?

I are confused...

You use a database, or a csv/excel spreadsheet to supply the emails to the service. You can then send your news letter through them.

With so many problems coming from illegitimate email marketers (spammers), it's becoming increasingly difficult to send emails to people who are on legitimate marketing lists, newsletters, or just your customers in general. These services work to keep their servers from being blacklisted and making sure all of the emails sent are from legitimate businesses. If you tried to do this on your own server through your own webhost, you'd find a lot of your emails showing up in spam folders, or are just being rejected out right. It takes the hassle out of bulk emailing.
