If you haven’t heard about SendPulse, here are 3 things you should know:

- It was among the 3 finalists of The Next Web SCALE program of 2016 and was recognised as one of the best startups of 2016 by The Next Web.
Here are 5 key reasons why you should use SendPulse as your primary email marketing software:
1. Web Push & Bulk SMS Options
Along with email marketing services, SendPulse also gives you the ability to send bulk SMS and push notifications to your subscribers. No other email service in the market currently offers these integrated services.
Push notifications allow users to get notifications on their desktop whenever you post new content on your website. It’s a great way to increase traffic to your site as well as attract unique visitors.
Creating push notifications for your site using SendPulse is simple:
- On the top menu bar, click on ‘Push” and then click ‘Add new website’
- Next, enter the URL of your website. It’s recommended that you have an SSL certificate aka HTTPS enabled on your website.
- Next, you’ll need to integrate push notifications on your website. Just follow the instructions on the screen to enable push notifications on your website.
2. Increase Open Rates and CTR with ‘Send Emails to Unreads’
One of the primary goals in email marketing is to increase the open rates of emails.
As a part of SendPulse’s unique AI functionality designed to increase open rates, SendPulse allows you resend emails to subscribers who haven’t opened your email.
All you have to do is click on ‘My Campaigns’, then click on the gear icon next to the email campaign and select ‘send emails to unreads’ as shown in the screenshot below:
SendPulse allows you to crease 3 types of autoresponders:
- A series of emails after user subscribes to your blog
- Sending an automated email on (also before or after) the date set in a variable, for example, on recipient’s birthday
- A triggered automated email which is sent after a certain condition is met, like subscriber opened an email, clicked a link, etc.
To create the first type of autoresponder, click “Create an autoresponder.” Fill in the email subject, select (or create) an email template, and fill it with the text.
You can add triggers to this chain of messages. This could be the trigger after the opening of the first message, after the recipient clicks on the link, or if the email was not opened.
You can also create autoresponders for SMS as well as push notifications.
The other great aspect about SendPulse’s autoresponders is that you don’t have to upgrade to their paid plans to use the feature. You have access to this feature even under the free plan.
