Default Re: acquiring email addresses

Buying an email list is a waste of money because you pay for each email address. And it is likely that they subscribed and agreed to be emailed for one thing, but what you're selling isn't necessarily of interest to them. Company I know bought over 7000, over half were invalid when we sent out the email shot, some more were rejected with permission denied and in the end only about 2,000 were usable, of which a large number unsubscribed immediately, leaving us with a couple of hundred that never replied, so they may have ended up in a spam folder! Although as for software for that, we bought Atomic Email Studio. And this also mines emails from the web (not illegal but sending email to business to consumer is). Always best to do what suggested above, get a web page to attract clients to a sign up page. Your list is quality too.

Absolutely right - I had a company recommended to me for a targeted local area email shot.

I ended up with auto-replies from Amazon and Microsoft, neither of which I think have head offices in East Yorkshire!

This can be dangerous and dodgy, I'd just think of another way of advertising, real flyers? They still work!
