User-friendly interface

The experience with Elastic Email is pleasant and seamless from the very start. Whether you're setting up your account, verifying your domain, adding and managing contacts, or sending your campaigns, our platform is very intuitive and easy to navigate. It also works quickly and smoothly to ensure swift email sending. We also offer an onboarding process within the app and a series of useful emails to help you get started on your Elastic Email journey.

Excellent 24/7 live chat support

We want you to grow your business while sending emails, so our customer service experts are there for you every step of the way, 24/7 from day one. Most importantly, we offer you live chat support with real humans, not chatbots. Get a quick response whether you’re setting up your account or looking for tips and best practices. In contrast, Campaign Monitor offers email support only five days a week (Monday to Friday) until 5 pm.

Multilingual dashboard

We know our customers are from all over the world, so we want to make using our platform even easier and more enjoyable with different language versions. Therefore, in addition to English, you can also use our app in Spanish, Italian, French, German, Portuguese, Polish and Indonesian. We also plan to include additional options in the future, as we’re constantly working on new language versions of our platform.

Send-time optimization

We understand that when you’re sending your email campaigns, you want them to be delivered at the most optimal time to get the best results. That is where send-time optimization comes into play. With this feature, you have the choice to either prioritize sending emails to your most engaged contacts first or to deliver each email at the ideal time based on when each recipient typically opens their emails within 24 hours of the campaign schedule. Whichever method you opt for, it can enhance email deliverability and boost your open rates.

Detailed reporting

Email campaigns make sense only when they are successful, and we can measure their success through their results and email marketing analytics. In the Elastic Email app, you can observe email delivery in real time. You get advanced reports with geolocation tracking, click maps, click rates, and delivery statistics. Check how many emails were opened, clicked, bounced, or unsubscribed, and respond to any issues immediately.

Landing page builder

There are many ways to generate your leads, including subscription web and popup forms.You can also create a landing page with us using our modern landing page builder without any coding experience. You can either choose from our pre-designed templates or create your own design.

How to migrate to Elastic Email

Want to move to Elastic Email? We’re really glad to hear that. Now, it’s time to learn how easy it is to start your migration to our platform. After creating your account, you will probably want to import your contacts. Let us walk you through this process.

Migrate your contact list

To import your contacts to your brand new Elastic Email account, you have to log into your Campaign Monitor account and export your contacts by downloading a CSV file. Once done, go to Audience>Contacts>Add Contacts on the Elastic Email dashboard. Then, choose Upload contacts, confirm the terms, and choose how you would like to upload your contacts.

This is when you will upload your file. Even though we support various file formats, we highly recommend using a CSV file. At the minimum, the .csv file can simply be a column of email addresses. If you have more contact values, they should be separated by a comma in the order email, firstname, lastname. Also, make sure there is exactly one field labeled ‘email’. Once the contacts are verified and assigned to a list, the migration process is completed.
