Subscribers

Automatically manage your email mailing list - subscribes, unsubscribes and bounces are all handled automatically. Included in the initial setup is the creation of your first list to get you going that much faster!

Measure

Real-time reports allow you to measure the effectiveness of every newsletter campaign. Measure your click-throughs, bounces, conversions and social media sharing. See what works and change what doesn't for next time.

1. Create & Send Email Newsletters

PREVIEW YOUR HTML EMAIL AS YOU BUILD IT

The live editor allows you to see your email as you build it. You can add your own text and images to your template and even change the order any items might appear. The moment you add your own content the system automatically saves a draft so you can come back and finish it later if you run out of time.

CHOOSE THE TEMPLATE FOR YOUR HTML NEWSLETTER

We can create great looking email templates that you can start using immediately. This design can be based on a generic template design, your existing website design or something completely unique. Set up templates for specials, products and another for your monthly newsletter - it's completely up to you.

SEND NOW, OR SCHEDULE DELIVERY FOR LATER

Once you are happy with your email, you can send yourself a test version. When everything looks good, send your email campaign immediately or schedule it for delivery at a specific time. This way you can build your campaigns in advance and schedule them for delivery tomorrow, next month or whenever you like.

ONLY PAY WHEN YOU ACTUALLY SEND A CAMPAIGN

With Maildrop you never pay any setup, monthly or hidden fees and you only pay when you're actually sending a campaign. Testing a campaign up to 5 times is also free! Check out our Maildrop sending prices.

2. Subscriber Management

LIST MANAGEMENT

Adding, removing, updating and viewing your subscribers is super simple.

ALLOW PEOPLE TO SUBSCRIBE & UNSUBSCRIBE ON YOUR WEB SITE

The best way to manage subscribers is to have the entire subscription process on your web site.

IMPORT AND EXPORT RECIPIENTS FOR YOUR EMAIL NEWSLETTER

Maildrop's list importing tool walks you through the process of importing an existing source, while automatically removing duplicate addresses for you and remembering who has subscribed or unsubscribed before.

MULTIPLE DATABASES OR GROUPS

Perfect for businesses who need to get different messages to different segments of their lists.

COMPLIANT WITH ANTI-SPAM LAWS

Every campaign sent includes unsubscribe links. Our delivery servers have been whitelisted by many of the larger ISPs, including Xtra and Yahoo!, to help ensure deliverability.

Check out NZ’s anti-SPAM legislation and our SPAM policy.

3. Reports & Statistics Overview

SIMPLE CAMPAIGN SNAPSHOTS

All the important stats like how many recipients opened, how many clicked a link and how many unsubscribed are all viewable from our simple campaign snapshot. We've designed our reports so even if you're new to email marketing you can evaluate the results of your campaigns by viewing the friendly easy to read graphs.

WHO ARE MY MOST INTERESTED SUBSCRIBERS?

With an “opens over time” report you will see who opened their email and when. You can even check out how many times each recipient opened it to find out who your most interested subscribers are.

SEE WHO CLICKED ON WHICH LINK

Our link activity report makes it easy to see which links in your email were most popular, as well as which recipients clicked them. This makes it so easy to identify what your recipients are interested in, as well as the opportunity to follow up on more qualified leads.

RIGHT DOWN TO THE NITTY GRITTY

Our recipient activity report lets you get down to some serious detail on your campaign. Easily see who opened, who clicked, who bounced, who unsubscribed & who forwarded to a friend. You can even search for a specific subscriber to see exactly what they did with the email.
