Frequently Asked Questions
To better help customers learn about Constant Campaigns, we’ve compiled the following Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs). For any additional questions please refer to our Documentation.
How does Constant Campaigns work?
Constant Campaigns is a cloud-based SMTP provider that acts as an email delivery engine, allowing you to send email without the cost and complexity of maintaining your own email servers. Constant Campaigns manages the technical details of email delivery, like infrastructure scaling, ISP outreach, reputation monitoring, and real-time analytics.
How can I send my email through Constant Campaigns?
You can send your email through Constant Campaigns using any of the following integrations, or a combination of them:
1. SMTP Relay: This is a great option if you’re looking for a delivery engine to work behind the scenes with your own application or another tool. SMTP relay is the standard protocol for sending email, and is a typical solution for customers who would like to increase deliverability while setting up their email in a third party application.
2. Web API: Designed for customers who need to programmatically send email through their own applications. This method is typically used for transactional messages, like password reset emails and order confirmations, but can be used for any message type.
3. Marketing Campaigns: This toolset is designed to help you send marketing email. It allows you to upload and manage recipient lists, build or upload your own HTML email templates, and then schedule and send your email campaigns through Constant Campaigns. This option works well for bulk, newsletter-type sends.
How does Constant Campaigns measure the number of emails sent?
Every time you make a request to send one message to one recipient, it is counted by Constant Campaigns as a message sent, regardless of the message being deferred or sent to spam.
