The RescueGroups.org Email Marketing Service has a completely free level of service that allows you to send 500 emails each month. We offer this free level of service as an un-timed trial of our Email Marketing service. You can upgrade to a higher level of service (additional emails per month) at any time.
All email sent from the Email Marketing Service must meet local and Federal anti-spam regulations as well as our RescueGroups.org Spam Email Policy.
Supports an unlimited number of email marketing campaigns.

Add a sign-up box on your website, or any web page.
Integrated with the RescueGroups.org Services
Fully integrated with the RescueGroups.org website and data management services which means it's easy to add the sign-up boxes to your RescueGroups.org website, add images from your RescueGroups.org service, and add campaign members from your RescueGroups.org contacts.
Easy to use WYSIWYG editor for HTML
Our service is designed with those who do not have any experience with HTML or web page design in mind. When you update an HTML email you use our What-You-See-Is-What-You-Get (WYSIWYG) tool, which is very similar to word processors you might be familiar with.
You do not need to know HTML to add and update your HTML emails, insert pictures, and link to files and other web pages. But if you do, you can take advantage of the editor to paste in HTML and code.
Opens, Click-Throughs and Bounce Reporting
Every campaign has advanced reporting including how many messages have been opened, clicked on, bounced and reported as spam. We also track how many times the email has been forwarded, and how many people have unsubscribed using the links in the email.
Every email has a link so the recipient can forward the message to people who might not be on the mailing list.
Security and Spam
Our email marketing service is designed to be CANSPAM compliant. Messages include organization address, opt-out information, etc. The sign-up process is double-opt-in.
