A Cheaper Alternative to Intercom
Nov 8, 2022
Intercom is useful as a email management platform when...
You want a simple interface to send out your campaigns
You don't have developer resources
You don't mind the price tag
But for some of us the price tag is a bit too hefty. Thankfully we found an alternative. When Amazon launched SES or Simple Email Service a few years back, it changed our world. We would send thousands of newsletters and transactional emails for our clients and it was burning a hole in both out pockets.
The we heard that Amazon SES was around 2 hundred times cheaper than Intercom. It costs around $200 per 10k emails using Intercom but using Amazon SES it costs just $1. SES can make our email marketing costs a non issue overnight. We couldn't believe it.
The only catch was Amazon SES was an API, there was no place to send emails, create a campaign, upload a templates, setup tracking, get reports, manage and segment lists etc. All the goodies we were used to.
So we set out to build our own. and now we make it available for everyone at a whopping $20 per month. Yes thats it. You just have to sign up and enjoy Amazon SES at just $1 per 10k emails for life. Here are how the features now stack up with SendNet combined with Amazon SES against Intercom.
I think thats all your need to know. Go here and get started now
