SendGrid vs. Bird

Partnering with SendGrid Email API enables you to send at scale when it matters most – with clear stats to back it up. SendGrid Email API also offers meaningful insights and personalized support to help you continuously improve your email program.

 

  • Bar graph with arrow showing an increase
    Proven scale when it matters most

    In 2022, SendGrid processed 17.7B emails on Black Friday and Cyber Monday combined. That’s 2.7x the 6.4B emails Bird deployed during those same days – when email traffic is at its peak.

  • Funnel Filter
    Metrics with meaning

    Instead of providing nearly three dozen email metrics for our customers to decipher and act on, we provide clear, actionable insights and simple next steps through SendGrid Engagement Quality Score (SEQ).

  • Chat bubble with list
    Expert support that delivers results

    Each SendGrid Expert Services team member has, on average, 15 years of experience – and they deliver results. Customers who partner with Expert Services see results; on average, customers see a 6% increase in email open rates.

  • People shaking hands
    Flexible pricing & extensive value

    None of our free plans are time-limited trials, and we offer better value regardless of scale. For example, 100K email plans start at $35/month with SendGrid and $75/month with Bird.
