SMTP, Inc. Enables RetirementJobs.com to Expand Its Email Marketing Program 400 Percent, to 5 Million Emails a Month

SMTP, Inc. (Nasdaq: SMTP), a global provider of scalable, cloud-based email delivery services, has helped RetirementJobs.com, the leading career website for job seekers 50 and over, successfully expand its email marketing program from one million to five million emails a month. SMTP’s email deliverability support and expertise has enabled RetirementJobs.com to achieve 400 percent growth in its email program while also protecting its excellent sender reputation and improving the company’s deliverability rate.

Email communications are critical for the RetirementJobs.com community of more than one million members nationwide. The company’s mission is to identify employers most suited to older workers and match them with active, productive, conscientious, mature adults seeking a job or project that matches their lifestyle. RetirementJobs.com relies on email to deliver members timely, relevant information about its programs and offerings, as well as the latest news about careers and the job market.

“Email is a core element of our marketing program,” said Tim Driver, CEO of RetirementJobs.com. “Because we send a very high volume of email, it is critically important to our business that it’s reliably delivered to the customer’s inbox. Since we started working with SMTP, we’ve seen a marked improvement in our email deliverability, and we’ve successfully scaled our email marketing program by 400 percent while preserving our great sender reputation. SMTP provides us with the peace of mind to know that we have an expert partner managing our email deliverability system well.”

“Successfully scaling an organization’s email marketing program from a few thousand to several million or more is no easy feat,” said Jon Strimling, CEO of SMTP, Inc. “It takes our highly skilled customer support team and deliverability experts working hand-in-hand with our customers, to achieve inbox success, whether they are sending 100,000 or 100 million emails a month. On average, statistics show that 22 percent of emails never make it to the inbox. By improving their email deliverability with SMTP’s knowledge and experience, organizations can achieve increased results that have a positive impact on customer communications, sales and revenue.”
