ACCOUNT – TERMS – USAGE POLICY
It’s been a while when I last updated this page, and if I’m not wrong, the last post that I talked about is Elastic Email – an email delivery service that is most “Trusted by Developers. Love by marketers”.
There are several things that I missed about the service, and just recently, the old (legacy) dashboard is already updated – obviously, there’s a new app in town.
I know some of you already know how Elastic Email (app) dashboard works, so I’ll just highlight here the usual things a user should be working on if he or she, created a new Elastic Email account.
Before anything else, and I mean before you create an account with Elastic Email, make sure you read their Terms and Acceptable Use Policy.
I know for a fact that a lot of people who wanted to send emails, tend to create an account or accounts without reading the app’s terms and usage policy, and doing so is not a good idea.
What I like about Elastic Email is that you will have the opportunity to purchase a private IP if you like, especially if you are sending a large volume of emails per hour or per day. Their private IP costs are very affordable, but for starters like me, I prefer to send emails using their shared IP pool, because I believe that if you are sending legit emails, there’s nothing you should worry about.
I’m telling you this because if you are sending emails with spammy looking content, trust me, you will get suspended. If you are sending phishing emails, the same thing will happen. So for the good guys out there, this is your chance.
If you already created an account, you are free to send unlimited emails, but you’re only allowed to send up to 100 emails per day, and yes, it’s free until you upgraded the account.
Everybody wanted to have a good, better, and promising delivery results, but as an email marketer, we all know that there are several things that we need to do to achieve this. The following are the things you need to consider:
1. Contact list – some email marketers are sending emails to lists of addresses that they purchased or scraped online. As a good marketer, it is best to send your emails to double opt-in addresses. This is the best way to achieve better delivery results. Why? Because the people who signed up to your double opt-in form, are really expecting your emails. This will help improve your open and click rates.
2. Sending domain – If you are sending your emails with Elastic Email, I highly advised to send your emails using a sending domain that is verified with their DNS records. You need to verify your domain properly and correctly. Again, this will help improve your delivery rates.
3. Email content – Nowadays, I kept receiving spammy looking emails, some people were even sending phishing emails, and I can tell you right now that these people don’t care if you will be hurt. Why? Because they only care about money. If you signed up with Elastic Email, let’s keep the thought about “good over evil”.
I read a lot of good stuff about the platform, and I also read a lot of bad things about them, but I know for sure, that the people who are spreading information, bad information about the platform, are spammers whose accounts were suspended or disabled. So, if you want to create an account with Elastic Email, wanted to take the right (good sender’s path), make sure you read their Acceptable Usage Policy.
If you have any questions regarding the platform, please don’t hesitate to ask me here. If you want to have an immediate answer to your questions, I highly advised reaching out to the Elastic Email Customer Success Support Team, they have a support that are available twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week, and yes, they are knowledgeable and very helpful.
