SendPress ProSendPress Pro is built with the Email Marketing Pro in mind. It is a fully integrated, Email Marketing Management (EMM) system, for WordPress.

SendPress is available as a free WordPress Plugin. SendPress Pro is a paid add-on, improving the capabilities of the free version.

For me, the best feature of SendPress is its simplicity. With multiple clients, needing the same type of solution, I don’t have time for a complicated setup and management process. Nor do my clients have time, for a complicated process, when they are ready to send emails.

I tell nearly everyone I help, SendPress is the most efficient Email Marketing Management system, you can find, for the money.

SendPress Features

If my “SIMPLICITY” feature isn’t enough, here are a few of the “Official” features, from the SendPress website.

While there are very little automated event options, and this is certainly not a transactional system, I feel its simplicity, along with the list of above features, makes SendPress a cost effective and efficient Email Marketing Management option. With a little advanced WordPress Knowledge, SendPress could compete with some of the most elaborate EMM systems out there.

I was using SendPress before they rolled out their affiliate program. I have tested scenarios, provided feedback/troubleshooting info and even suggested improvements. I can tell you, for a fact, Josh and his team are committed to making SendPress the best and easiest to use EMM option available.
