Email privacy changes and how they affect you

Email privacy changes and how they affect you

It’s not going to work the same.

One of the go-to methods for contacting many clients is mass-email.

Here we use Campaign Monitor, but there are many others including the venerable MailChimp.

All of these systems allow you to track whether someone has opened their email, where they were when you opened the email and many other features. (Whether you do track these things should be reflected in your privacy policy and whether a client allows you to track these things.)

These things are all going to break with the way Apple is changing the way it connects to email services.

This is to give your clients (and you) more privacy. So, it is a good thing.

It will impact your mass emails.

Here is a great video from Campaign Monitor, detailing the changes.

Google Apps no longer free

I received some bad news today! Google Apps is no longer to offer its free product to new customers. Until now, it was possible, after the initial trial of Google Apps for Business to downgrade to Google Apps Standard, which was free.

At Cloud Genius we see great benefit in the Google Apps product – we use it ourselves.

This policy change at Google will affect our offerings – we can still set up Google Apps for you as part of one of our great website offerings. We will even set it up for you as a standalone product. Unfortunately, after the first month you would have to pay Google a fee. Currently that starts at £3.30 per user per month (less if you pay annually). It is still a great product.
