We are looking for experience in e-mail marketing.
We are in the process of relaunching our web site over which at one point in time [url removed, login to view] people opted-in for our newsletter. Back then we were using ConstantContact (CC) successfully which at th moment can not be used due to the bounce back and spam policy. The web site was shut down in 2010 which means that the list is 2 years old.
We are looking for someone who would first do the list cleanup and send newsletters on our behalf, along with list management. Because we were using CC, we have not setup any kind of mail server infrastructure.
We are open to both scenarios: (1) the service provider would use our CC or some other mail services accounts (MailChimp or similar) or (2) use their own infrastructure for e-mail marketing. We would stil need to have insight into bounce backs, spams and other metrics usually provided by CC and similar services.
Newsletters would be sent out twice a month. We would test the first campaign and based on the results and quality of services sign a more long-term agreement.
In case of interest, please send your references along with a proposal how would you provide the services: which scenario, what insight (and how) are you able to provide, one-of (for the initial list cleanup and first campaign) and long term pricing (monthly fee for sending newsletters), approach to list cleaning, approach to sending –mails, what do you need from our side.
Based on feedback, we would setup a Skype session-interview with potential service providers.
Please bid for the initial service, pricing or long-term via pm.
