Infoblast is the efficient bulk mailing service of South African Cross-Media Marketing Company Underdog (www.underdog.co.za). The service allows our clients to send well-formatted personalized bulk e-mails to their clients strictly in terms of the South African Electronic Communications Act and best global practices.

The service is built on a reliable and secure bulk mailing system - locally managed, and supported in South Africa, which offers a variety of features that allow you to save time and resources as well as developing beautiful personalised mails.

WHAT IS INFOBLAST – CAN I HAVE IT TO?

- Personalized mailers designed and sent out on your behalf, on a weekly or monthly basis, addressed individually to a particular person.

Personalize

- Infoblast can send a high volume of mails with great speed and efficiency.

- It is an incredibly secure system, with email communication and contact database saved to our cloud infrastructure; you will never have to worry about loosing your substantial client database.

- Logical subscribe forms are developed for your web site to immediately collect relevant information from your users, the integrity of which is then verified via a “double opt in” e-mail sent in a personalised way to the user.

Forms

- Infoblast manages all subscribes, unsubscribes and bounces automatically.

Data Cleanse

- Integrate SMS with your email campaigns if you wish to, and in one database, and invite existing users to update their profiles with you to include their Cell Phone Numbers at a later stage if you so wish.

SMS

- Schedule newsletters for the early hours of the morning so that your subscribers receive early morning news in the inbox or send them in double quick time at any time you need to.

Schedule

- Buy a package of e-mails or SMS’s to send every month, and use them at will. Our system automatically sends well-formatted HTML mailers, and images will load off our servers. This often requires you to allow images to be loaded off the web. The system also sends a plain text version of each e-mail, which is used for mail clients, which cannot read the HTML version of the e-mail (such as certain cell phones).

Should you wish to send a bulk HTML mailer to your clients in a responsible way, and wish to have the benefits of this dynamic mailing system, please Contact us for more information.

I DON’T WANT TO BE BOTHERED, HOW DID I LAND UP GETTING AN E-MAIL?

If you have received e-mail via this service, you should have used a "double opt-in" for the clients e-mail list, and should have subscribed via the client’s web site. In some cases clients have provided us with a list of their clients and contacts initially, and you may have come onto the list for that client in this way. At the bottom of EACH e-mail you receive, should be a link to instantly remove you from that clients list. This is an immediate process, and will remove you from the clients’ database with us immediately, however you will get one final e-mail with the option to “re-subscribe” if you made a mistake. Underdog takes the security of peoples e-mail details very seriously!

WE VALUE YOUR PRIVACY and SO DO OUR CLIENTS.

We do not sell or re-use any data we hold for our clients, we keep each clients database in a separate database table, we never allow unauthorized access to the databases, and take all reasonable steps to ensure the security of the databases we hold for our clients. If for any reason you experience difficulty in removing yourself from the list, or have any further questions, please contact us or simply reply to an e-mail you received to get back to the client in question directly – Both these options put you in touch with a real person. If you are still stuck, call us on +27 82 234-4040.
