Which matters more to you when picking an email marketing service: price, the number of contacts support, analytics? It depends on your goals, of course, which is why a new review of leading options from NextAdvisor is probably a resource you should consult if you're dissatisfied with your current option or making your first investment for your startup.

The story offers metrics on eight leading services (I'm listing them in alphabetical order):

Benchmark Email
Campaigner
Constant Contact
iContact
GetResponse
Mad Mimi
SimplyCast
Vertical Response

The three services that actually scored highest (five out of five stars) are ones that might be lesser known to you. They are Benchmark, SimplyCast and GetResponse.

The one extra bit of information I personally would have loved to see considered is integration with social media tools and mobile features, which are two big areas of innovation for email marketing. But this review is definitely worth your attention.

    How about the size of the botnet?

    I don't think I've ever seen a legitimate marketing email in my inbox in my life. Even if I have, they're probably in my spam box, lost among the millions of emails about Nigeria and how to make my reproductive organs bigger.

    Spammers have basically ruined any chance of email marketing ever really being effective. Frankly, I wouldn't bother.
