Mailing Lists At 20% Discount: Electric Marketing's Latest Special Offers Available For September 2021

Lists of UK's Top 1,000 Companies

Ranking Companies By Annual Sales Or Number of Employees Works Best For B2B Marketing Campaigns

Most b2b marketers want at least one client from the top rank: the sort of client name that everyone will recognise. Our series of mailing lists of the Top 1,000 Companies meets that need to target large firms; the companies with big ideas and big budgets to match.

To show the sort of companies you will find on a Top 1000 list, here is a list of the UK's top 100 companies, ranked firstly by turnover (best for marketing director, finance director, IT and chief executive mailing lists) and then ranked by number of employees (best for mailing lists of HR, learning and training managers).

You will find that our lists differ from those on the financial pages of newspapers, which rank companies by market capitalisation (share price multiplied by number of shares issued). This method of ranking excludes privately owned companies, such as Mars, partnerships such as John Lewis (aka Waitrose) and companies quoted on European and US stock markets such as Nestle and Microsoft. The financial press rankings suit investors, while our rankings are better for marketing, emailing and lead generation.
