Thinking of starting my own email company but need you advice.

How much to charge?
Would you like to be able to pay for just one mailing?
What things do you want most of all.

Thanks in advance,

    What market segment would you target by doing this? The big dogs, Aweber, GetResponse already have their connections with the ISP's, which is what you need more than anything else to ensure deliverability.

    Don't get me wrong, I think there is always room for improvement, but you would need a tremendous hook to get people to switch and you would need to offer a longtime amount of free service to people who haven't built a list yet.

    The most important feature any email marketer wants is inboxing. The problem with people who start "new" email companies is that they need money. As a result, they let people into their system that greatly harm their reputation. That can be prevented by carefully scanning their data and tying into some email validation services.

    If this is something you really want to do, go to and look at his ESP package. He has the insight and knowledge to help you get started with a solution.

    Also, you may consider focusing on providing services for a group of trade associations instead of just anyone that comes around.
