Help needed: let us build a worldwide list of email marketing service providers

I’m trying to build a list of Email marketing Service Providers or ESP from over the whole world. Now, I know it’s a crazy mission.

There are probably thousands. I will start with some, I know. But then comes the challenge: how will I ever complete this list?

That’s where I hope, you, dear visitor, come in. If you’re an email marketer or an ESP, from Bangladesh, the U.S., Indonesia, South-Africa or anywhere else in the world: comment on this page and I will gladly check the ESP and add it to my list.

Now, first I thought about describing all the features and functions the platforms of these ESPs offer. But that seems an impossible task to me. What do you think?

However, what I can try is to follow all these ESPs and write a post if they release some new features.

So, what will you find in the list? Simple: a list of ESPs per country. Those that are present in more than 5 countries will be ranked under international.

Besides their name, a general email address and a short description (that I will copy from their sites or that they can type in themselves in maximum 5-6 lines by commenting on this post), you will find a link to them.

What’s the advantage of such a list? I have people from all over the world asking me what are the best ESPs for them. Now, I could simply send them a list of those that are mentioned in Forrester’s reports but Forrester only ranks the big ones. Some of these people are self-employed or start-ups and don’t have huge budgets. So sometimes I advise them a cheaper, yet good, ESP platform. But the truth is I don’t know them all.

If someone from Japan asks what ESP he should use, it would be nice to provide him an overview of ESPs in Japan too. You know what I mean, right?

Maybe one day we could even do ESP overviews and benchmarks per country. Nearly all of them offer the possibility to take a test drive, right? A bit like Forrester does but then locally. Would be nice, no?

If it’s a crazy idea: shout. If you see the benefits: I hope I can count on you: please comment below!
