Sean Donahue is a reputed Internet Marketer and I have enjoyed and implemented a few of the strategies that he teaches at at his blog. He is a frequent at launching products and most of his products have been top quality. It is hence that I have bought pretty much all his products because these products simplify my daily activities in some way or, the other. And it is these kind of products that I prefer buying rather than all the “Get Rich” courses that pop-up on the webosphere everyday.
So when Sean launched IMSC Rapid Mailer, I was not surprised that it is going to sell like hot-cakes. I was probably one of the first few who jumped onboard on IMSC Rapid Mailer. But, while the product was top quality again, I had a sense of doubt, if it really was something that I needed.
It is hence that I thought I will make a video on some of the aspects of IMSC Rapid Mailer and evaluate to check if you really need this plugin.

Okay! Now that you have watched the video and seen how the plugin works, let us look a few of the aspects why rapid mailer is a revolutionary product.
IMSC Rapid Mailer Review
There were quite a few aspects of Rapid Mailer that was fascinating. While the plugin was in pre-launch, Sean managed to build quite a bit of interest and curiosity around the plugin. But the sole fact that, IMSC Rapid Mailer was a plugin that will help anybody run a self-hosted autoresponder, itself was more than enough to generate interest for this plugin.
Almost all of the other options available in the market, be it a script or, a software, that let you run a self-hosted AR, would cost you anywhere between $500 – $700. Hence when Sean launched his product at a $47.00 price point, it was welcomed in the community. Add to it the fact that it was a wordpress plugin, meaning that the installation was as simple as any other plugin… and it made IMSC Rapid Mailer one of the most desirable products.
There were quite a lot of features in Rapid Mailer that made the plugin one of the most essential plugins for an internet marketer. Some of these were -
- The flexibility to publish your emails as a blog post
- The use of the Simple WordPress editor as you email editor
- The option to run a subscription service, where you can earn money for managing mailing lists
- A variety of email templates to choose from
- and many other features like the statistics panel and so on….
And then we tested out their support. “IMPRESSED” would be an understatement, because they actually delighted us with their support.
Overall, our rapid mailer review was unanimous in electing the plugin as the undisputable king. But at the same time, there were some aspects which could have been given a better treatment by the creators of the plugin.
Rapid Mailer Review – Aspects that Could have been better
One very confusing and time-consuming activity was configuring the options. We were a little overwhelmed by the options, but we couldn’t but agree that most of these options was a necessary. But at the same time we felt that the developers could have put all the most important and essential configuration options together and the optional ones in a different tab. This could have made the configuration panel a bit more organized.
The stats also looked a little too confusing and configuring it was another challenge. We did not know what was the most important stats to look for in our dashboard. Add to it the fact that you cannot re-organize the various parts, and it made for a sore eye, especially if you do not like graphs and prefer more of figures in your stats dashboard.
Some conflicts with certain other plugins was also noticed but that was a minor glitch that is expected out of every plugin.
The Final Verdict on the IMSC Rapid Mailer
We loved the plugin and its simplicity. It was a handy little thing to have in your internet marketing arsenal, especially if you are looking for something to fall back on in case your primary AR fails. It also served as a good primary option as well, but only if you have a reliable sending service. Amazon was not reliable, especially if you are into internet marketing because they particularly hate internet marketers.
But there are many other options that you can go to in case you are planning to go with a self-hosted AR. Sendgrid was the best out of the these.
