Gmail (Google), 1 billion active monthly users worldwide. Outlook (Microsoft), more than 400 million active users worldwide. Yahoo Mail (recently acquired by Verizon), 225 million active monthly users. These are the numbers of the top email providers vying for a marketplace of 2.6 billion global users, according to Radicati Group’s independent analysis.
But, what will we found if we pay attention just on the U.S. market? The U.S. is a market where 85% of all people use the internet and over 246 million are monthly email users (meaning they send at least one email per month).
More active users—this is the goal. However, we forget that before they can run, the users have to learn to crawl. The first step towards getting more active users is to figure out the users’ first interactions with the service.
Billions of Users… But a Lot to Improve
With more than 71 million active internet users, Germany is one of the most mature and attractive markets for the internet service providers (ISPs) and telecoms of the world.
Email is one of the most popular services companies offer in this market. There are dozens of email providers in Germany, but what are the most popular email services there? According to a survey done by Statista, titled Leading 10 e-mail providers in Germany in 2015, these are the email providers with the most users:
Cambridge, Massachusetts. 1971. A US programmer named Ray Tomlinson made history. Being part of the ARPANET project, he was the first person in the World to send an email. The first email. 45 years later, and after a lot of attempts to “kill the system”, the email is alive. Maybe, more alive than ever before.
We’re happy to announce a new one day workshop (#WorkshopsWeLove). This time, the workshop will be focus on Prometheus, an open-source service monitoring system and time series database. It provides monitoring out of the box, a multi-dimensional data model, a flexible query language, instrumentation and powerful and smart alerts.
To be honest, we tend to focus more on the marketing side of growth, and less on the other half – analytics. We can plan and execute dozens of campaigns but we won’t learn anything from that work if we’re not ready to track our results accurately. Ultimately, this means that our decisions can potentially be very wrong.
