email delivery services, has helped RetirementJobs.com,
the leading career website for job seekers 50 and over, successfully
expand its email marketing program from one million to five million
emails a month. SMTP’s email deliverability support and expertise has
enabled RetirementJobs.com to achieve 400 percent growth in its email
program while also protecting its excellent sender reputation and
improving the company’s deliverability rate.
Email communications are critical for the RetirementJobs.com community
of more than one million members nationwide. The company’s mission is to

active, productive, conscientious, mature adults seeking a job or
project that matches their lifestyle. RetirementJobs.com relies on email
to deliver members timely, relevant information about its programs and
offerings, as well as the latest news about careers and the job market.
“Email is a core element of our marketing program,” said Tim Driver, CEO
of RetirementJobs.com. “Because we send a very high volume of email, it
is critically important to our business that it’s reliably delivered to
the customer’s inbox. Since we started working with SMTP, we’ve seen a
marked improvement in our email deliverability, and we’ve successfully
scaled our email marketing program by 400 percent while preserving our
great sender reputation. SMTP provides us with the peace of mind to know
that we have an expert partner managing our email deliverability system
“Successfully scaling an organization’s email marketing program from a
few thousand to several million or more is no easy feat,” said Jon

support team and deliverability experts working hand-in-hand with our
customers, to achieve inbox success, whether they are sending 100,000 or
100 million emails a month. On average, statistics show that 22 percent
of emails never make it to the inbox. By improving their email
deliverability with SMTP’s knowledge and experience, organizations can
achieve increased results that have a positive impact on customer
communications, sales and revenue.”

I'm a lonely sensor. I spend all day telling the world how I'm feeling, but none of the other sensors seem to care.
I want to be connected. I want to build relationships with other sensors to be more useful for my human. I want my human to understand that when my friends next door are too hot for a while, I'll soon be flaming. And when all my friends go outside without me, I may be left behind.
Don't just log my data; use the relationship graph.
