Are You Thinking About Self Hosting Your Email Marketing?

Self hosted autoresponder…

Yes or No?

I asked myself this very question many times and i’m sure you have too.

Whenever I tried to get advice from my friends on whether or not this was a good idea I was always talked out of it because the BIG autoresponder platforms where better and I could never get my emails delivered as good as them.

I have tried many of the big names in the email autoresponder space and have found that they don’t always deliver either.

So why should I leave my business in the hands of some large company that doesn’t have my interest top of mind.

Let’s take a look at some of the pros and cons about hosting your own email marketing platform.

Deliverability

Deliverability is all about reputation.  Your domain reputation.  Your IP reputation.

Here is the reality.  On a commercial autoresponder platform you share the “reputation” of the other users of that platform.  Even though these companies have many IPs you still share the IP with other users.

So let’s say just before you want to send a broadcast message to your email  list. Another user has just blasted a spammy message that has been flagged by subscribers and email servers.

Guess what happens to your email?

Bounce City!  Your email will not be flagged as well because you are sending from the same IP as that other user.

And as you are trying to build your domain reputation it has now taken a hot because it is sending from a flag (blacklisted) IP address.

By having your own self hosted autoresponder you can control the reputation that is associated with your IPs and sending domain.

Server Setup

One of the biggest challenges is getting the proper server set up and email autoresponder software that will fit your needs.

This can be tough if you are not tech savvy but there are many options at a small cost to get you setup with all the proper settings for your server and needs.

The big drawback to having your own self hosted autoresponder is that there is very little in the way of support.  You can’t just submit a support ticket to get things fixed.  You will need to do it yourself or pay someone to do it.

But with the money you are saving on monthly fees it works out better for you anyways.

Server Warm Up

This is a hot topic when it comes to the discussion on having your own autoresponder.

And YES this is a task that must be done and done correctly.

Patience is the key to success here.  Don’t just blast thousands of leads right away.  You will want to makes sure that you engage and segment you r subscribers for the best results and trust from the email service providers like Gmail and Yahoo.

The Number 1 Reason I Use A Self Hosted Autoresponder

Because I am in control of my own destiny.

I had built up subscriber email list with buyers and because of the deliverability issues (and the cost I was paying for the deliverability) my emails were not going to my customers.

By having my own autoresponder I was able to import all my leads and customers in to my new platform.  Which you can’t do easily at Aweber or GetResponse.

How Did I Get Set Up?

The first thing I did was reach out to friends that had set up mailing servers before to find out the insiders tips.

I learned a lot.  Somethings went right.  Somethings went wrong.  But I was able to fight through and get it all set up.

I’m saving a ton of money too 😉
