has incorporated an AI-powered solution to support the creation of newsletter content within this new service. Before sending these emails, users can preview, check, and edit content as required.
Each email campaign is monitored to assess its success and adjust future campaigns as needed. Key figures tracked via this new service include opening rates, clicks, bounce rates, and spam rates.
Users can add new addresses manually or collect them automatically through the company’s contact form on its website. IONOS protects its customer data by complying with the strict regulations set out in the European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
IONOS is offering four different packages, based primarily on the number of emails sent per month, to ensure that each user pays for what they need. It’s also offering a discount for the first six months of the subscription. For example, the Email Marketing Plus plan allows up to 10,000 emails per month and costs $15/month. Currently it’s available for $5/month for the first six months.
