Email Vendor Guides


Email Vendor Features & Functions Guide

Examining over 600 data points, with over 30% including the average user skill level to implement those features and functions, our Guides look at the capabilities of email vendors ranging from the small market to commercial MTAs and all points in between.


2014_me_coverThe 2015 Email Vendor Features & Functions Guides from Red Pill Email are developed and published by a 19 year Industry veteran with deep client and agency side experience.  He’s lived the user’s life between the chair and the keyboard in high-volume high-pressure environments.  He consults with clients and vendors alike and has been directly involved with more than fifty vendor evaluations and selections for Fortune 500 companies and major brands, and more than half as many client-vendor systems integrations for leading brand names.

Based on that experience, the Email Vendor Features & Functions Guides from Red Pill Email doesn’t look at the number or type of clients of the participating vendors, nor do they take into consideration the vendor’s revenue or company vision.  They don’t care about the “state of email” or the geo-social ramifications of the industry as a whole.  While those things are interesting and may come into play in the user’s ultimate decision, they don’t tell the user what a vendor is capable of; and email programs run on capabilities, not vision or a client list. Vendors do not pay to be in the Guide; they are selected based on their abilities and willingness to participate.

Whether you’re shopping for your first email vendor, or considering a switch, these Guides are where you’ll want to start.

Small Market Email Vendor Features & Functions Guide

Not all users need or want a full-blown enterprise-level ESP, or even an aggressive mid-market provider.  Just because a user isn’t there yet doesn’t mean that they don’t face some of the same challenges in finding a vendor to best suit their needs; and let’s face it, asking “What’s the best ESP” on a forum or discussion group isn’t an adequate solution.

That’s why we offer a Small Market Edition of our Email Vendor Features & Functions Guide.

The Small Market Edition looks only at vendors focused on email solutions for smaller markets.  We still look at the same data points as we do with the mid-market and enterprise players, like Data Security and Back-up, API Protocols and Functions, and overall product capabilities, we just tone it down a bit and remove some of the other distractions.
