Constant Contact is by far the biggest and most well known email marketing company. Mailchimp leads in “cool” and neat features, while Deluxe’s Vertical Response is a serious contender in this market as well. There so many more email service providers such as Emma, Feedblitz (Favored by Seth Godin) and others.
In the past few months and more are coming there’s many new email marketing service providers giving the leaders in email marketing new competition.
From Europe hails the newest entrant, Mailify. Mailify has a fresh new interface and features that a modern email marketing service should have, and a few advanced features that would make even MailChimp blush.
While it’s big focus is on ensuring your emails look great on mobile devices, there is more. But one heart stopping detraction for me is that you have to install it on your computer – from what I can tell it’s not cloud based. Ouch.
Mailify and new email marketing services, such as Robly, don’t have to “beat” Constant Contact and Mailchimp, they simply have to be good enough to do two things a) attract the dissatisfied users of these services and b) attract users who are now to email marketing.
