It all started with one bounced email and the search for a better solution.
Back in 2003, FeedBlitz’s founder, Phil Hollows, needed help with the RSS to email service he was using for his corporate blog. But when the email to their support mailbox bounced, Phil knew he needed an alternative, and fast. As a professional product marketer embracing blogging and what was later to become known as social media, Phil knew he needed a solution that not only had the metrics, deliverability and customizability his job demanded, but also saved time with the end-to-end automatic email generation from the corporate blog.
There was only one small problem: That solution didn’t exist.
And so FeedBlitz was born.
“If it moves, automate it. If it’s automated, optimize it.” Phil Hollows, CEO.
So since 2004, FeedBlitz has grown and innovated in the automated email marketing service provider space, both in terms of capability and value. While best known for being the leading solution for automated blog subscriptions, you might be surprised to learn that we also provide fully fledged email marketing funnels with conditions and rules; traditional email newsletters and email marketing campaigns; novel monetization opportunities with our unique ad network; automatic incorporation of images from Instagram and Pinterest, videos from YouTube and Vimeo, and product updates from Shopify and Etsy; extensive customization; extensive customization and conditional personalization; social media updates to Twitter and Facebook. There’s a feature rich API for developers, integrators and hosting services wanting to embed more value to their own solutions as their markets commoditize. We have specialty options for municipalities, first responders, and enterprises.
Crucially, we know that when you run your business, no matter what size, you want a “no surprises” vendor. So, for example, all our pricing lets you send unlimited emails, with no overages, for your fee. Unlimited tags and custom fields. Unlimited image uploads. Our plans include benefits that you’d otherwise have to bring in other services for - saving you time and money - such as text to subscribe, and email address verification.
All this value, all these capabilities, all these choices, are married to our industry leading deliverability.
Deliverability is something we never take for granted, because if you can’t get your email to the inbox, no matter who you are or what features you use, it doesn’t matter. It’s our job.
Need help? You can pick up the phone and call our US-based support team, no matter what plan you’re on. Because we’ve been where you are, and when you need to talk to someone, you need to talk to someone who gets it.
No limits, no overages, terrific value, outstanding deliverability, and real people on the phone to lend a hand.
That’s why FeedBlitz.
It’s interesting, really. That once bounced email led to a service that has since produced and delivered billions and billions of emails.
That’s our story. Let us help you live yours.
