About us


What’s this website about? Who’s running this website?
Email marketing is an important tool when building a relationship with customers. It is, quite simply, the fastest, least expensive, and most personal form of communication there is.

EmailToolTester.com features an international comparison of newsletter services to help you pick out the right software in a flash. For these reviews, we focused on the requirements of smaller and medium-sized businesses.

We regularly make sure our reviews are up to date – after all, the providers do add new features and fix bugs. You can also take a look at our newsletter calculator!
This website is run by Robert Brandl. You may have read his name on the related site WebsiteToolTester.com, also run by Robert. It has been a popular source for website builder reviews since 2009.

His experience with email marketing began while he worked for a marketing agency called Publicare. During almost five years his main focus was on the emarsys email software, and he handled large clients such as Vodafone and Citrix Systems.

These two areas of experience have combined to form EmailToolTester.com. He also runs ChatToolTester.com, a website dedicated to reviewing and comparing live chat software, as well as AppToolTester.com, were you can find information on app makers.

How Is EmailToolTester Financed?

We prefer affiliate revenue to distracting ad banners. In practical terms, this means that we receive a fixed commission from the provider whenever you click on an affiliate’s link and become a customer. This doesn’t cost you a cent beyond the product you would purchase anyway. Not all the providers we review are affiliates, but we give every provider a fair chance. And whether or not a provider is an affiliate, this does not influence our work.

Being independent from the providers is the foundation of our reviews, and we pride ourselves that our review scores are plausible and make sense. Should you ever have a question regarding a review, please feel free to contact us or leave a public comment in any of our reviews.

Social Responsibility

Kiva - loans that change lives EmailToolTester is a small company, so we know how important financing is. That’s why we would like to support people in developing countries in starting their own small businesses. We are convinced that the best way of doing that is via the platform Kiva.org.

At Kiva.org, people band together and give micro credits of $25 each in order to finance tailors, animal breeders, or taxi drivers, for example. Traditional banks usually don’t see enough revenue in small businesses – as a result, they depend on micro credits. Here’s a link to our Kiva page.
