All in One Platform for Marketing
Several marketing services are provided on one platform like email marketing, SMS marketing, Web push notifications, Viber marketing, etc. Thus, you can reach your customers through every means possible. In the technology era, we have so many ways to communicate like SMS, Email, Messaging Apps, etc. For marketing, all these should be utilized.
You can upgrade your plan from free plan to monthly subscription which costs $9.85 only for email marketing. The amount of the subscription can vary depending upon the number of subscribers. For 2500 subscribers, you have to pay 9.85 dollars in which you can send unlimited emails. You can even increase the number of subscribers according to your need.

You can benefit from the customer support service through phone, online chat or by filling the feedback form. The support phone number is provided on the website. The online chat is a quick way to speak to the customer care executives, and they provide instant remedies to all the issues.
No Spams Allowed
Users who are suspected of sending spam messages through this service are instantly blocked from the account, and the access is denied to them forever. The subscription can also be confiscated. Thus, they have zero tolerance policy for spammers. Though this is useful for the users and subscribers both but spammers are deeply affected by this feature.
I have tried and tested this website, and I could not find any more Cons of this service. I have used many sites for email marketing, but most of them end up making me confused about how to work on them. On the other hand, SendPulse is self-explanatory on every step. I was easily navigated from one step to another. Many people cannot afford expensive professional marketing teams for themselves, but this platform has made this process relatively cheap.
Overall I would definitely recommend you to use this service. You don’t need to purchase the professional plan, just register for the free trial and experience it yourself.
