Amelia Ibarra, General Manager, SaaStr


Amelia Ibarra, with over 12 years of experience in devising innovative marketing campaigns for B2B and B2C businesses, specializes in email marketing. Her expertise has driven growth for SaaStr through groundbreaking campaigns.

Amelia and her team at SaaStr, a no-code team with restricted access to designers, faced challenges in creating various email content, including newsletters, ticket emails, and attendee emails, tailored to different customer journey stages.

Disappointed with their sending platform's cumbersome email builder, Amelia's team sought a flexible solution to create brand-aligned emails while efficiently managing time and resources. Being a small team, finding a tool that would boost engagement and conversions while delivering high-quality emails was crucial.


The marketing team sought intuitive tools that enabled a quick start. They chose Beefree, an easy-to-use drag-and-drop editor that satisfied their requirements.

With Beefree, the team efficiently created and managed all their emails. They used folders to organize campaigns, facilitating easy access to past projects for inspiration.

Inspired by Beefree's template catalog, the team crafted and customized their templates to match SaaStr's branding, accelerating content creation. They also found the saved rows feature valuable for recurring emails, like newsletters.

Beefree's version control feature ensured no changes were lost, empowering the team to produce high-quality, engaging, and conversion-driving emails.

In conclusion

Integration of Beefree into SaaStr's email marketing toolkit was transformative. The seamless integration was possible due to Beefree's intuitive email builder, which enabled the rapid creation of on-brand, captivating emails. SaaStr efficiently streamlined its email creation process using Beefree's drag-and-drop editor, user-friendly content blocks, and folders to organize its emails. Building emails confidently, Beefree has proven to deliver tangible results for SaaStr's email marketing endeavors.

“Many people think email is dead, but emails are still our number one driver. People just need a tool like Beefree that powers their emails.”
