“The challenges we were experiencing prior to purchasing Inbox Pros service were deciphering when to let what looks to be a potential issue age and figure itself out OR when to design an immediate plan of action to avoid bigger headaches. We had a bit of trouble with Gmail/Hotmail and needed a more hands-on approach in our deliverability vendor. We needed vendors that cared if we inboxed or not beyond the monthly calls!
We chose Inbox Pros over their competitor because of the hands-on relationship & care. If we needed to understand a basic email deliverability concept OR more complex new best practices/fundamentals – Inbox Pros made the effort.“
“Before Inbox Pros was able to start fixing our deliverability problems they needed our IP addresses, historical context, current battles and what we’d most like to achieve with our email marketing programs.
One of the major changes we had to make to move in the right direction of successful email deliverability was changing our target audience. With Inbox Pros help, we redefined our target audience ultimately helping us be more efficient. Inbox Pros is quick to respond and actively work on fixing deliverability issues. Depending on the ISP, we normally see deliverability improvement within 2 weeks.”
“We gained 100% inbox placement at Gmail and have been able to maintain good deliverability standing all while learning new advanced concepts. Currently, we review our inbox placement & compare it to our IP engagement performance 2x week. There is also a weekly process to check specific ISP-performance from Gmail Postmaster to SNDS. If anything is off, we work closely with Inbox Pros to ensure no immediate action needs to be made.”
“eHarmony and Inbox Pros has developed a great working relationship. We truly appreciate the efforts they go to ensure we feel best about the ever changing and fickle world of email marketing. We hope to continue to grow with them!” (Olivia Liang, Sr. Product Marketing Manager at eHarmony)
