The following is a guest post from Rishi Shah, Co-founder and CEO of Digioh. Digioh allows you to securely send, store, and deliver large files from the cloud, and keep track of every download, all without having to write a single line of code, or ever having to use FTP.

Send downloadable files through email

Remember when you could send attachments–your beautifully designed one-pager or catchy new mp3 single–to your email marketing lists? If you’re as old as I am, you do, and you may also know that, because of the rise of virus-embedded attachments, most email marketing systems don’t let you do this anymore (and those that do typically end up in the spam folder).

For the many of us who miss the rich feature of sending high-value, downloadable content, but want to ensure our emails go directly to the inbox, SendGrid and Digioh have partnered up to offer a solution. Digioh is a file-sending service that provides secure download links for your files, which you can embed directly in your SendGrid marketing emails. With over 20,000 customers, Digioh has helped process over 1 million downloads to date through a simple-to-use, integrated platform.

Secure your files and grow your lists

In addition to giving you back the power of sending downloadable content, Digioh integrates with SendGrid to give you greater control over who has access to it. Let’s say you have an e-book that you only want your most loyal customers to receive. You can create a separate email list for them in SendGrid, create a download link to the e-book with Digioh, and then send them the link through a SendGrid marketing email. If someone tries to forward the download link, Digioh will automatically check to see if they are on your list and deny them access if they aren’t, protecting your document.

Likewise, you can use this same feature to ask people who are not on your email list to sign up in order to have access to your files. This is a great way to put your files to work for you and increase your reach by growing your SendGrid email lists. You can also track who your biggest fans are by seeing who is downloading and sharing your files.

Easy to use, easy to afford

Digioh operates on a freemium model with the free plan allowing up to ten downloads for one file up to 50 MB large. Paid plans start at $9.99/mo for up to ten files at 500 MB each with unlimited downloads. Each paid plan has a free trial, so you can test it out to see if it works for you.
