Nigeria’s first full-featured email marketing and automation software “Mail Guru” – offering free and paid email marketing services which cater to small businesses as well as enterprises has shut down its operation in Nigeria due to lack of funds. This is coming weeks after popular ride-sharing platform GoMyWay also shut down its operation.
This information was disseminated to her partner and customers via her weekly newsletter that reads below:
Dear Valued Customer,
We thank you for letting us serve you this year, it was indeed an honour. However, like the saying goes “All good things come to an end”. On this note, we are very sad to inform you that we will be shutting down this service at the end of the month. As some of you have noticed, we already disabled new registrations and subscription renewals.
Running this service was indeed an adventure but unfortunately, we cannot sustain it any longer. Long-term email deliverability is a very tedious and expensive task and we have totally failed to secure proper funding to keep the service going.
I am sure a lot you will send in mails requesting for an alternative to this service. Unfortunately, there is no other affordable Nigerian Email Marketing Service I can recommend.
If there are any other enquiries you wish to make, please feel free to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Once again, it was really an honour serving you.
Cofounder, MailGuru Email Marketing.
We wish the entire team of Mail Guru the best in their future endeavours.
