The budget-friendliness is not the only asset we are proud of. Our Starter plan offers many features critical to your success, which Brevo only offers in their more expensive plans!

Send-time optimization

When setting up your email campaign, send-time optimization is a useful feature to send and deliver your emails at the most optimal time. You can choose to either schedule your emails beginning with the most engaged contacts first or deliver each email at the most optimal time, based on a contact’s open time rate within 24 hours from the campaign schedule. Whichever option you choose, it may improve email deliverability and increase your open rate.

A/B testing

If you’re not sure which version of your email layout would work best, use the power of A/B testing. If you have two or more versions of your template, subject line, or content, you can test it out and find the winner. The system will send all the variants to a small batch of contacts and see which version performs better. The winner will be sent to the rest of your list.

Detailed statistics and reports

When you use Elastic Email, you get advanced campaign reports, including geolocation tracking, click maps, detailed link click monitoring, click rates, and delivery statistics. You can track your email delivery in real-time, which allows you to respond to any issues immediately.

Email verification service

Email verification service lets you clean up your email list by checking if your contacts are valid. This feature allows you to verify your email addresses based on millions of emails sent every day. It eliminates spam traps and invalid addresses and identifies role emails and probable spelling mistakes. As a result, you have a clean and high-quality contact list.
