    Realtime information in email campaign

    Hello,

    Today, email campaigns built are usually static in nature. When your customers get the email, they usually includes stale data (like quantity in stock etc). I built a solution that can show real time information inside emails.

    By using my service, once can built embed code snippets that can be added into your HTML email. The first snippet I have built is a countdown timer (for when the deal ends).

    I wanted to know if the community needs such a solution. Also, wanted to know how much someone would be willing to pay for such a service.

    Thanks
    Sriram

    My answers...no, and nothing.

    Here's why:

    1) If image tags are routinely blocked by email clients for tracking reasons, there's reason to believe that the embed tag will as well (never tried it and don't have a reason to).

    2) In the last year alone, I've had clients run multiple "email campaigns" based on "targeted lists" that they acquired and I had to beg and plead with their hosts not to shut them down on the grounds that they weren't trying to spam...they were just acting really, really foolishly.

    I think Google is getting into the spam blocking game by capping the number of outgoing emails a new Gmail account can send out daily.
