The following is an announcement from Cassie Thill from SendGrid’s Business Development team.
We’re happy to announce that effective yesterday, September 10, 2013, SendGrid will be included in Hacker Monthly’s Growth in Cloud Marketing Hacker Bundle. The bundle will provide a diverse toolset for developers looking to easily expand their marketing efforts. Hacker Bundle aims to provide better deals for great software. It curates the best apps in each area (like growth hacking) so that users don’t have to figure it out for themselves.
At SendGrid, we are big fans of Hacker Bundle’s innovative efforts to help developers find the perfect toolset for their projects, apps, or companies—it provides more access and at a fraction of the cost of traditional trial periods. As part of the Growth in Cloud Marketing bundle, SendGrid will be offering our Bronze Plan for 6 months (40k emails/month). This offer is available to new users only and is ~$60 value.
Beyond allowing developers to easily integrate email functionality into their web applications, our e-mail analytics and marketing tools provide A/B testing and metrics to inform better e-mail practices. Our bronze package comes with our world-class email deliverability expertise to make sure your emails get delivered and includes ISP monitoring, DKIM, SPF, 24 hour support, and much more.
Our offering is included among a handful of other fantastic tools including: Stride, Moz, LaunchBit, HitTrail, and more. The bundle is available for $37 and includes $2,147 worth of services.
A SendGrid customer, Hacker Monthly was launched 3.5 years ago as a print version of Hacker News: a social news site for programmers and startups. They’ve just recently launched the 40th issue of their print magazine/e-book.
Hacker Monthly launched Hacker Bundle earlier this summer and has received good feedback from developers, leading to longer trial periods in this new offering. SendGrid’s trial offer is for 6 months, with other tools in the bundle offering 2-4 month trials, credit offers, or lifetime discounts.
The Growth in Cloud Marketing Hacker Bundle will be available for 1 month, starting September 10, 2013.
