Get Your Data OUT of the Cloud!

Did you know that most cloud-based computing is not secure? There are "leaks" of mailing lists happening every day and nobody seems to hear about it until their subscribers start asking "did you give my email address to xyz?" Yes, cloud computing is cheap and saves you pennies but if you care about your data you will think twice about the cloud. Go ahead and ask any ESP that has their equipment in the cloud "where exactly is my data and who is managing the physical servers?" You'll likely hear just crickets because if the vendor is using one of the big cloud vendors they have no clue where their data is, and the person "managing" that physical piece of hardware is often on the other side of the planet. How much is your customer base worth to you? Global IntelliSystems owns and manages 100% of its hardware. When your data is hosted here it is secure and we know exactly who is manintaining the physical and virtual server on a day to day basis. This should be one of the most important questions you ask any vendor. Many vendors moved into the cloud because of the low cost so they can offer their services for pennies on the dollar. That's the only way they could squeeze out a profit. Bottom line: if they don't own their hardware then they have no physical control over the data - and that's just too risky in our opinion. Want to hear someone choke on a question? Ask the vendor if you can visit the data center and "see" the actual pieces of hardware that houses your data. Again, you'll hear crickets. That's where Global stands tall above the competition. We own our equipment and would be happy to give you a tour of the data centers.

All-Inclusive Means You Get World Class Service for One Low Rate

You are a professional email marketer and you know the importance of quality, deliverability, and how that relates to ROI. All the pretty charts in the world are useless if you can't get into the inbox. That's where Global stands above all competitors. Not only do you receive the most robust and feature-rich solution to your marketing needs but you get it all (including free dedicated IP's/servers) for one per-message rate and nothing more. No "extra charge" for this-and-that, everything in our email marketing solution built-into the low per-message rate. With our all-inclusive pricing, free dedicated servers, full-service coaching, and 24/7 delivery monitoring and ISP mediation (by people, not robots), we are the best choice for high and low volume marketers. You get detailed reporting, SMS/Text Messaging, complaint management, subscriber services, and extensive list services. We cover it all. For the past 16 years we've been providing email marketing solutions to some of the largest companies in the USA while giving them monthly invoices that are often 30% less than any competitors. We are the best because (a) we know how important on-time and inbox deliveries are to your ROI, (b) we monitor every message sent from our service to quickly discover (and repair) any issues your campaign has with an ISP or corporate gateway, and (c) since we own all of our hardware we can give you pricing that fits your budget like a glove. Companies switch to Global because they want to know someone is always watching, always caring, and always giving them new an innovative features on a monthly basis to make their job easier while always improving their results.

Deliverability is a Common Word with ESP's but the Results Make the Difference

We hear some not-so-amusing stories from companies that switch to us about their amazing journey with their former vendor. They tell us how the only communication their old vendor had with them was the monthly bill. Or how when they found themselves blocked on Hotmail how their vendor gave them a "how to" document so they could try and fix it themselves. One client even told us their vendor would send them an email saying "we are shutting off your service because you received too many complaints" - What? All of those actions are a sign their vendor simply doesn't understand business and doesn't understand their own purpose in the industry. With Global you get 24/7 deliverability monitoring. We see things as-they-happen so if Hotmail decides to block you, we (not you) get the process started and work to fix the problem directly with Microsoft. If a corporate domain is giving you less-than-stellar response rates then we (not you) contact the administrator and find out what it takes to get the problem resolved. We are the mediator in all of this and keep you informed of every step we take and every action that is needed.

We Also Give You Free Custom Development.

Free custom development is a must-have. We build custom features for our clients free of charge, every day of the week, and we love doing that. We believe in fitting our service into your operations, not the other way around. If there is something unique that only your company does with data - just let us know and we will make our system fit perfectly with yours. It really is the high quality network, amazing customer service, and affordable prices that bring customers into our doors and away from our competitors. We do it better.

Just Take a Look at Everything You Get, and It's All-Inclusive.....

Free Dedicated Servers
These days most email marketing vendors "bundle" your email over the same servers. That means your high-dollar investment publication or weekly retail sales ad may be going over the same IP address as an adult bookstore or portable toilet advertisement. You definitely do not want that, it doesn't make sense. We would never let that happen because when you have an account with Global IntelliSystems your mail goes over your very own dedicated servers with dedicated IP addresses.

24/7 Whitelist Management
Every account comes with at least two (2) dedicated delivery servers/IP addresses. We have servers constantly in the "warm up" stage of their life so when you sign-up with us we can quickly get those servers into production and ready to use. Whitelisting those IP addresses helps boost your response rates because the ISPs recognize that the IP address you are sending from and can allow mail to flow more easily (without complaints.) Read more on the whitelisting service included with every account.

Delivery Monitoring
Sending your email is a small part of email marketing. Knowing where your message actually went is more important. Learn more about how our delivery monitoring service helps you maximize response rates.

Confirmed Opt-In System
The very best way to maintain a clean, bounce-free, complaint-free list is to run it in confirmed-opt-in (COI) mode. Many marketers cringe when they think of COI because in the old days (10+ years ago) subscribers did not want to take that "second step" to confirm their subscription to the list. However, the days of the second step washout are gone, COI is now commonplace.

Real-Time Data Management
Collecting new subscribers to your list is complemented by our real-time data services for data validation, format verification, and address analysis. This helps reduce bad data from ever getting onto your list. Read more about the data services that come with every account.

Mailing List Verification/Validation
Having a mailing list is nice. Having a clean mailing list ten times better. This means lower bounce rates, higher open rates, and happier ISPs. Our tool checks from over 630,000 bad addresses, dead domains, and more. Read more on the features included in our list analysis tool.

Content Uploads by Web, FTP, SCP, or Email
Many large companies use automated systems to post messages to send to their subscribers. We can easily work with almost any automated system to accept your content files. We also can automatically "autolink" (enable click tracking) the messages as they are uploaded. If you need a very special process to handle the uploads of messages to your account - just let us know what you need and we will built it for you, free of charge. Our job is to make your job easier so allow us to help you automate the content upload process.
Complete API Access
You can rite your own custom front-end to interface with our system to upload content, lists, launch mailings, pull reports, and much more with our API. We are constantly adding new features to our API to give every client direct access to their account without ever having to log into our system! More information is available on our API access page.
Read More
Merge any list data into your outbound messages, subject line, or any part of your headers. Automatically de-dupe your list upon upload and suppress any list against another list in your account. No worries about past complaints or opt-out's, our system will automatically suppress those addresses from your mailings.
Dynamic Content
Send the same message to your entire list but certain recipients can have special images or content automatically added-in for a personalized effect. This is the #1 most widely used tool for retailers when sending coupons to their customers.
Targeted Mailings
In a matter of seconds you can split and sort your mailing list by a demographic key code or any mail merge field in your database. Perform A/B, Nth, and random splits of your list with ease to help you target or test mailings to certain groups. Reports are designed to show results of targeting against one campaign or bumped up against a selected group of campaigns.
Password Protection
You can password protect job launches from your account so only authorized personnel may launch a mailing. You can also limit access to specific areas or functions within your account. Example: give a temporary user upload access only and restrict job launches to administrators.
Image and HTML Server
You can store images or any HTML or PDF document in your own mini-website and use that site to serve those images/content instead of from your own in-house servers. This often saves on bandwidth if you are sending large mailings of 500,000 pieces or more.
Event-Based Messaging
Send out a special message "N" days after they click on a certain link in your message. This tool will act as an automatic salesperson who follows-up with people after they visit your site. This is a powerful sales tool! Even setup a series of messages that are time-delayed after a certain event takes place with a click or visit to your own website.
Extensive Reporting
Use any of our 9 pre-defined reports to view campaign activity, click-through rates, HTML open rates, delivery-by-domain, bounce reports, and much more. Plus, if you have a specific need for a special report just sketch it up and we will design it at no charge as part of our service.
Configurable Campaign Reports
Our campaign management report condenses all the details of your mailing to a single page. If you need more data, the tool allows you to configure the report to include almost any piece of data in our system.
Click-Thru Tracking
Our click tracking system will automatically convert links in your HTML to trackable links along with collecting up to 10 data points per click (merged-in data from your list) including date, time, IP, browser type, and operating system type. You can also trigger events based on a click such as moving an address into another list or generating an email or series of emails based on the click. Complete reporting is available via standard web-generated reports or nightly batch or ftp/scp reports/files sent to a location of your choosing.
HTML Open Tracking
A simple link embedded into your content will track and record who opened the message and when. You can also track the message as people forward copies around the office.
Custom Message Headers
You can create as many message header profiles as needed. A header profile is the From/Subject/Reply-to field of the message header. You have total control over the look and feel of your message. Plus, we never brand our name in your content as a "brought to you by."
Automatic Database Update
Update any field in your mailing list database when users click a link in your email, or take another action. Using this tool, you can also capture the email addresses of users that clicked on a particular link to build a new mailing list.
Time-Delayed Delivery
You can schedule any number of mailings for any time in the future with just the click of a mouse. You may also recall a previously stored mailing in case you need to change the content or address list.
Multiple Accounts
There is no extra charge if you want to have multiple accounts. Many companies have five or six separate accounts for different divisions or different lists they want to keep completely separate from their other lists. Just ask for as many accounts as needed — they are yours at no extra charge.
Extensive White List Management
Our automated patrols monitor bounces for any "code 99" (spam) block reason and we instantly contact the domain holder to get your address whitelisted. Every mailer on the planet causes blocks from time to time. The secret is fixing the problem quickly (within minutes) and helping the client so it doesn't happen again.
FREE Development and Customization
Try getting this from any competitor, they won't do it. Since the beginning we offer our clients absolutely free development services for all aspects of our system. Want a custom front-end built? Want to build a marketing automation system that fits into your internal processes like a glove? Want special reports? Yep, it's free of charge and there is no limit to how extensive the development project is. Our competitors make you fit into their system but only Global will build any feature, any system, any integration tool to help you maximize your productivity, free-of-charge!.
List Management Features
Subscriber Center
Create and place your own subscriber center directly onto your website and have new subscribers or unsubscribers fed directly over to your account for processing. You can ask your new subscribers for more than just their email, you can ask for as much data as you need and that data is all saved to your account. You can then do more personalized mailings using the data you collected (first name, zip code, other demographic data, etc.) You can even give your subscribers access to their personalized data so they can update their info any time. You can also receive an email directly each time a new subscriber is added to your list.
Subscription Processing
Our service provides automatic management of subscribe/unsubscribe requests. Subscription requests are handled through our verified opt-in system (see below). Unsubscribe requests are processed immediately and added to a log showing the date/time of every action taken on your list. We even give you a sample template to use for processing subscribers directly from your website.
Bounce Management
Not all bounces are really bounces, and that can cost big retailers upwards of six figures annually. Our bounce analysis tool can tell if a bounce is really a bad address or if something is wrong with your network. It condenses bounce data to a simple report for you to review and act on significantly reducing the time consuming task of bounce management. You can have peace-of-mind knowing that each of the addresses on your report has been filtered according to 785 different characteristics to prevent accidental elimination from your list. No other service in the industry gives you this kind of bounce management!
Address Verification
While there is no system that can tell you if every single address is valid and working, our AVS tool will test every domain and will show you the domains that have no possible way of being delivered. Misspellings and invalid punctuation will also be shown on the output.
List Security
Every mailing list on our service is unique. We do not share databases or tables with other clients. There is no chance of cross-contamination of lists and we use triple encryption for all logins, uploads, and data transfers.
And More!
We literally have over 1,200 custom applications written for our client base so if there is a feature or service you need - chances are we have it. If we don't, we will design it for you for FREE.
Data Validation Features
Email Address Validation
This one is a big time and money saver. You can tie into our address validation system and stop bad addresses from getting on your list at the point of entry. The system checks the address against over 750,000 known problem addresses and domains, bad mail exchangers, bogus domains, chronic complainers, and a variety of other proprietary checks to make sure that address has the best chance of being good as it comes onto your list.
Street + Zip Code
If you are collecting postal address information then it's always good to validate this information before it gets onto your list. Our validator system will check the address against the USPS master address system to give you that extra comfort knowing the address and zip code match and are valid. While we can not validate the actual person living at the address we can make sure the street and zip are accurate and correct.
Phone Number
When you require or accept a telephone number onto your list our validator can also verify that the area code and prefix match known NPA-NXX and/or NANP. The validator will return a good/bad result to your form script so you can ask the subscriber to verify their address is correct. The subscriber is given a chance to correct their number and you can also give the user the option to submit the telephone number in case a new area code/prefix is in use without being noted on the NANP system.
