What is aki mail?
aki mail is an easy and affordable way for your company to send out emails to your subscribers on a monthly or one time use basis. It is integrated with your site, so potential subscribers only have to enter their email address and they are automatically added into your subscriber mailing list. Our system will send out your emails either instantly or at a scheduled time. After each e-mail campaigns are sent out, you can see reports containing useful information like: Who opened the e-mail, who clicked on a link, who unsubscribed, and who forwarded the e-mail to a friend. aki mail even has the ability to send out a test e-mail to check how it will look on different webmail clients and e-mail programs.

Templates can be used to allow you to easily manage the content and images that will populate your campaign. There are many pre-built templates that you can use to send out your campaigns. You also have the option of building your own. You can simply build your e-mail like you would a web page and import it. Or of course you can have aki creative design it for $50 per template.
aki mail has full reporting of all of your campaigns. You will have the ability to see how many subscribers you have, who has unsubscribed, how many e-mails were opened, the bounce rate, and what links were clicked on your email. Another great feature is you have the ability to see if someone has marked your e-mail as spam.
You can easily manage your subscribers by uploading them or integrating a form into your website. You can do this by either simply using a pre built HTML or we can help you customize and integrate into your site for free. Subscribers are managed automatically. If emails bounce to many times or the email address is invalid, your subscriber list will automatically be culled, that way you are only paying for active subscribers. You can also have an e-mail sent to the subscriber when they join your list with a thank you or requiring them to confirm your subscription.
In order to make sure our clients are not spamming others we do have some pretty strict, but not unusual, rules that you need to adhere to:
- You must include an UNSUBSCRIBE link visibly at the bottom of every campaign that gets sent out.
- Your subscriber list must NOT be purchased or obtained without the users’ consent. We want to make sure that recipients of your campaigns want to receive your campaigns.
