Email Marketing

Looking to find out what Team Treehouse and others use for email marketing without having signatures on the footer from companies like Constant Contact or MailChimp.

I watched the videos on MailChimp, but they force their branding and logo on the emails. Looking to have this solely come from me. Any suggestions on analytics and tracking that can be embedded into the email as well? Google Analytics can do this, but looking for something more robust if anything exists. Thanks!

This is secondhand, but many of my friends swear by MailChimp. You can get rid of the branding by opting for a paid plan. Sorry I don't have more specific insights!

Are you looking for email marketing, or transactional emails like what Treehouse sends? Transactional email senders like Mandrill, Mailgun, and Sendgrid function quite differently.

Hi Kevin Korte I haven't heard of these three so I'm diving into them now to identify what they can achieve.

Providing an update. SendGrid now has a marketing campaign, very powerful and affordable.
