Streamsend review – Email Marketing Solution

If you have been wanting to do any email marketing then you may have ran across the Streamsend.com website and wondered if this was a good fit for your business and how you want to email your customers.

We have been a customer of Streamsend for over a year and have been really happy with our experience with them overall.  The only problem is that we wish our open rates were better but I have found that happens with any email marketing system.

It is really easy to add a form to your website or blog to get visitors to signup to receive emails from you or you can easily upload customer lists.  Of course you cannot upload bought or rented lists as that would be spam but if you have a previous customer list you can upload them and use Streamsend to contact your customers.

Using an email marketing system like Streamsend is really a helping hand as you get more and more subscribers to your email list.  Stream send automates the process of dealing with unsubscribes and keeping you in line with all of the laws.

The only downside I have noticed is when I have sent close to the limit you have to pay a little more to send that last little bit even if some of the folks on the list that is setup are unsubscribed it seems you have to que for all of them.  It’s really not that big of a deal but I have spent 20$ extra in a month a couple of times due to this.  I may be mistaken on them queuing even the unsubscribed ones that was just my gut feeling at the time.

Another pro to using Stream Send for your email marketing needs is that you can easily scale up or down your account according to your delivery for that month.  If you need to send 5 messages to your 20,000 person email list this month and only 1 next month you don’t have to pay the same.  Just adjust your account size.

I highly recommend Streamsend to anyone wondering if they should use Stream send for their email marketing.

Lost Wallet, What To Do?

Anytime you lose your purse or wallet it opens the door for identity thieves to all the necessary information about you that they need to take advantage of your credit rating.  From here they can easily sell off your personal information to other thieves online or start creating fraudulent accounts in your name and taking the property purchased on your credit and disappearing.  This happens every day.

If you have lost your wallet or purse, this is what to do

1. Phone your bank and credit card companies to let them know immediately.

Ask to have your account numbers changed as a security precaution.

  • They should provide you with new account numbers and transfer your credit limits and history to these new account numbers.  If your lender is unwilling to do this, find a new one.

2. File a Police report

  • Do not miss this! If fraud takes place this is vital!
  • Store a copy of the police report with you.
