Could This New Marketing Platform Solve Email Deliverability Challenges?

By Lucy Mazalon

Email deliverability is an age-old challenge for marketers. Once an email campaign is sent, the feedback marketers receive often masks a harsh reality; even if 99% of emails are delivered, what % made it into the inbox – and how many met the sorry fate of the spam folder? Surely, with all the innovation circulating the Salesforce ecosystem (and beyond), there would be some way of answering your burning questions about your email deliverability?

Validity set out on a mission to be the most trusted leader in email deliverability, recently launching Everest, an all-new platform for email optimization, analytics, and delivery. The new platform takes advantage of the capabilities of 250ok, Return Path, and BriteVerify, which Validity acquired in the past two years, while adding several critical new features not found in any other solution on the market.

With Everest, brands can maximize their email success to engage more customers and accelerate growth. The competition for engaging consumers at their inboxes has never been higher. The market is ripe for a tool like Everest, a blessing for marketers who are looking for a competitive edge but who are left in the dark about deliverability.

“…our newest platform innovation, Everest, is, by a wide margin, the most comprehensive, insightful, value-add email platform ever offered in our industry. Any business that relies on digital marketing should consider Everest as the key to delivering email success.”

– Mark Briggs, chairman and CEO, Validity
