Mailgun Integrated 

Like all other APIs within Campaigns that enable the delivery of application-driven messages, the configuration of a Mailgun-powered Sending Node is detailed and easy.

The process empowers you to set up details of the sender, additional/custom information for the email headers, and other required details while connecting your Mailgun account.

While connecting your account with Campaigns, you need to provide the verified domain as well as the API Key to authenticate the requests that Mailgun will receive on your behalf.

The process of Mailgun signup, getting your send from the domain verified, and acquiring the required credentials is pretty straightforward.

Analytics & Reporting 

As you connect your account of Mailgun with Campaigns Sending Node to be able to later use it for email delivery. You can also opt to process the delivery reports using the Mailgun Event Webhooks.

The Mailgun Webhooks helps you get insights into the performance of the emails you send through its system. It precisely informs you about the engagement metrics like email opens or clicks or events like bounced or unsubscribed etc.

To be able to process these delivery events within Mumara Campaigns requires you to provide a URL that can handle the data of these events via POST. It may seem complex to you, but it isn’t actually.

Campaigns automatically create a URL taking your Mailgun Verified domain. You’ll just need to copy it from your Campaigns interface and paste/save it in your account within Mailgun.

Cost Effective & Sustainable Email Delivery 

As an email marketer, you always make a conscious effort to deliver a maximum number of email messages to the recipient’s inbox. However, recent surveys maintain that the majority of marketers are struggling with deliverability.

Since every sent email costs you time and money, you can’t just keep experimenting with your current providers. Having an infrastructure capable of resolving/processing delivery issues and choosing an email service recognized for sustainable delivery is always a better idea.

Campaigns and Mailgun together serve both ends:

  1. Making an informed decision to be able to carefully analyze engagement reports within Campaigns.
  2. Using having a seasoned delivery service Mailgun on your side for sending.

What You Can Get

With this setup in place, you cannot only save the costs for missed messages but can also cut the overall sending cost. Further, you don’t have to recruit staff to manage technical things, don’t need to buy expensive hardware infrastructure on a recurring basis, and don’t have to worry about the maintenance of the infrastructure.
