MailKing is an email campaign manager. It allows you to send and manage campaigns without ever leaving Gmail, and it sends the campaigns from within your Gmail or G Suite accounts. This is great for you as the sender because your emails will not be automatically marked as “Promotion” (which is one of the main problems with MailChimp or other dedicated mass mailing systems). Instead, they will actually come from your own email account.
