Problems with Gmail for mass email marketing

There are a ton of problems with doing this, and im going to list a few small ones

  • You cannot send more than 499 emails per day
  • You are breaking gmails sender guidelines
  • You cannot really design your emails well
  • You cannot track or get any good analytics on your campaign like you can with a good email marketing service

There are a ton of them around, most of which are complex and difficult to use. For me, it was always the simpler the better. Currently I use MOOSEND. But there are a ton of them around. MOOSEND provides great analytics, has large deliverability rates for your emails and high click rates. It's easy to use has a ton of free templates to choose from.
