A Cheaper Alternative to Sendgrid
Nov 11, 2022
Sendgrid is useful 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 60 times cheaper than Sendgrid. It costs around $200 per 10k emails using Sendgrid 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 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 Sendgrid.
I think thats all your need to know. Go here to get started now.
