Because we recognize the importance and benefit of tying in email to your mobile marketing efforts, we’re pleased to announce the growth of our ongoing relationship with SendGrid, the leading delivery platform for email that matters.

Relying on Appboy for email has never been a better decision—applying comprehensive customer data and behavior to messages, and using SendGrid’s industry-best inbox deliverability will not only help your mobile, but overall business strategy. A key benefit of this partnership to SendGrid customers is that they are now able to utilize Appboy for Mobile Marketing Automation and SendGrid for their comprehensive email needs by connecting their existing SendGrid email account seamlessly with Appboy.

Appboy clients who currently take advantage of email as part of our robust mobile messaging solution already know that sending it through our platform is easy and effective. By applying Appboy-powered tools like personalization to their emails, clients such as Photobucket have achieved record-setting revenue and seen their open rates double.

By leveraging the comprehensive data captured in our robust user profiles, in concert with Appboy’s best-in-category tracking, retargeting, and multi-channel messaging capabilities, our email offering moves the needle in a significant, coordinated, data-driven way.
