So, you have an email list…now what?

Best Practices

We recently received a request for guidance from a friend of the company. In hindsight, it was clear that the specific situation related to this request and the resulting conversation would be valuable content for others, so we’ve decided to share the discussion here on our blog.

Conferences, Trade Shows, Hackdays, Oh My!

Company, Events

At SendGrid, we’ve been busy hitting the proverbial pavement and spreading the word about who we are and how we help companies grow and succeed. We thought it was worth taking a moment to reflect on the cool events we’ve been a part of in the past month or so, as well as those that are approaching in the coming months.

Why the Redesign?

Today, we are very excited to release to the public our all-new site design. We’ve been working hard to roll this out, and it feels good to finally set it free into the wild. Over the last year, we’ve collected significant feedback from our users in regards to the UX/UI aspect of the site, which we have used to guide our efforts with this release. We would like to continue this collaborative effort, so please give us your feedback by clicking the tab on the right side of each page.

A BIG Thanks

This was made possible by countless hours spent by a number of amazing people, including: our kick-ass engineering team, our designer, and an awesome outside firm called Soft Facade. We couldn’t be more proud of what that the team has accomplished, and we thank everyone involved for their hard work.
