Email Marketing Software Overview

What is Email Marketing?

Email marketing is designed to help a company maintain communications with customers. This builds loyalty, increases brand recognition, and drives sales.


The challenge with email marketing is to strike a balance between efficiency and personalization so that you can:

  1. Maximize a one-to-one sense of connection with individual customers.

  2. Reach out to hundreds or thousands of customers at once, at minimum cost.

Email marketing software helps marketers create, send and track subscriber emails while complying with the regulations that govern email outreach. It does this on a bulk level, which increases efficiency. These bulk emails are commonly referred to as email blasts.


Tools range from batch-and-blast products to products that allow users to configure personalized, triggered messages. The messages are based on the behavior or demographics of subscribers. The simplest solutions are designed for sending newsletters or advertisements.


All email marketing tools facilitate ‘big’ sends. However, what ‘big’ means can vary. Therefore, make sure the product you choose will work for your list size without causing performance issues or breaking the bank.


Most email marketing software offers the ability to design engaging emails without writing code. This is possible by using a drag and drop tool or a what-you-see-is-what-you-get (WYSIWYG) editor. Advanced email marketing tools allow for retargeting, triggered drip sequences, and segmented subscriber lists. Many of them integrate with CRM, CMS, and ecommerce platforms to make running email marketing campaigns even more efficient.

Email Marketing vs. Marketing Automation Software

Email marketing software is closely related to marketing automation software. All marketing automation platforms include email marketing, and many email marketing tools include some degree of automation. But marketing automation tools also include broader marketing capabilities not connected to email. These include lead management, campaign calendars, event management, landing pages, social campaigns, advanced analytics, and more.

Email Marketing Software Comparison

To more easily compare Email Marketing tools, consider evaluating different options based on these 3 key factors:

1. Contact List Size / Number of Emails: Make sure your email marketing software can support your needs. Many tools’ pricings are differentiated by the number of users you have on your contact list, or the amount of emails you send per month. Typically, the larger these numbers are, the higher the cost.

2. Ease-of-Use: This means more than just having the ubiquitous intuitive interface, and actually having the features that make email marketing software cost-effective. Compare tools features against those that make your life easier such as pre-designed templates that are mobile-responsive, drag and drop capabilities, and native signup forms.

3. Use Case Support: Think about whether you’ll be using emails for different purposes and identify which tools cover all your intended use cases. For example, will you use your tool only for direct emails, or website marketing, event marketing, or other online avenues such as social media and advertisements.

Pricing Information

Email marketing tools are typically priced on a subscription model. Pricing depends on the number of email contacts you have, and the number of emails you send each month.


Free plans exist, but they typically limit the number of emails sent each month. They also may require senders to keep the email marketing tool’s branding in the footer. On the lower end, an email marketing service can cost as little as $25 for up to 2,000 contacts. Mid-tier service runs up to $500/mo. for up to 50,000 people. Enterprise level email marketing software goes up from there. Depending on the scale and complexity of your email marketing needs, your organization may find that investing in a comprehensive marketing automation solution may be a more suitable choice.
