    Please share your insight:

    1.  How to get emails addresses.
    2.  How conduct an effective email marketing campaign.

    Any hub or books suggestions should be "disinterested."  i.e. not written by you.

    Get people to sign up for it, don't send them out blindly.

    I don't think there is such a thing as "spam free email marketing".  If someone gets hold of my email address and uses it to send me an email selling something, that's spam.

    What else could you call it?

      When a person voluntarily provides their email for, say, a newsletter, emails sent in such a scenario would not be spam.

      Anyone has success with opt-in email lists?

        If I sign up for a newsletter, I would be p**ed off if the site then used that sign-up to send me a lot of unsolicited emails.

          Sounds like you get pissed easily.  Maybe you should work on that.

            I don't think so.  Actually I don't mind, provided there is an "unsubscribe" link in the first email that works, and is actioned promptly. 

            But I would think far more highly of a company that allowed me to choose, when I signed up for the newsletter, whether I wanted to receive other communications.  I think that's only polite.

    Nick:
    My friend tried to send out an e-mail marketing message to a huge list of people--I don't know how he obtained the list; though he is a something of an expert at coding for the web and probably hacking, too.  Nada response & he was offering a service.

    His best response came after he set up his own website, with a bio, etc., and then proceeded to network on several forum sites relative to what he was trying to sell, offering deals.  Then people started contacting HIM.  He's been self supporting since.

    Pgrundy has a good hub on this kinda networking (albeit geared toward writing as a business for the web).

    And OMG, I cannot believe I'm helping you network yer bimbo-ette trapping, lol!

    AND, you need to get media appearances, guy!  See this:

    Though Janka (while still being a really good-looker) has a lot of women p*ssed at him all over the city.

    Receiving spam simply because I signed up for a newsletter would piss me off too.  It's a dirty way to do business and is a great way to lose potential customers through that kind of action as well as word of mouth.

        You will find that this is a "Community."

        Feel free to look that word up in a dictionary. You can either join, or be considered an a**hole wink

        I can see which way you are leaning though......

        Not a big fan of receiving unsolicited emails myself. Otherwise known as Spam.

              That is a good choice -  they are far too smart for their own good. There is a more sinister animal - NEVER turn your back on a duck. Beady eyed little schemers, the lot of them.

    Now, now, guys!  smile

    Nick's a New Yawker, so maybe that's his excuse...  And this site is out of San Fran, which I think is just a more friendly-oriented place all around--so maybe that's it???

    I do think the marketing on forums he needs to do to make him some $$$ on his content isn't HERE--what, with the dating stuff lumped & labeled 'Family' and all?  One maybe should see that semantically and adjust ...?  But he's obviously newer than even me at this internet marketing and all, so maybe that's why I feel a tendency toward wanting to help him out...

    I get lots of 'legitimate' business newsletters, say on long term health insurance, mediabisto, and work at home, etc.  Of course, unless I'm interested, blip--  Into the trash.


    A filthy bullying democratic libertarian--with socialist leanings--who loves dolphins  smile

      Only joking about the dolphins - watch out for the ducks, though. They know something that we don't. hmm

          Too right! Great Hub!

          Actually, I tend to work US hours, because most of my work is from there.

          More like extreme hubaholic activity to avoid doing any work!  smile

    You want to try Co-registration and things like that. Always get the permission. Give away free stuff in exchange for emails.

    You will want to be familiar with can-spam compliance, because even if your not US  based the product or service that you are marketing will drop you if you cause complaints or a bad name for their service

    Most legitimate mailing lists are double opt-in ...meaning entered once and then confirmed via email

    (you are prob familiar with the process)

    as far as converting your mailing list...you will want to offer quality content/info and services to build a positive relationship before slamming them with your offers.

    Many people get signed up for newsletters/offers by being offered a free e-book or software downlaod with an email submit...you will see this a lot at "guru" pages.

    SPAM doesnt bother me in the slightest as i have dozens of email addresses each used with consideration to who or what I give them to... one of my emails gets 2000 messages a day! and that not including the SPAM folder

    e-mail marketing usually only converts if it is highly targeted ....you could always buy a few mailing lists as you develop your own - as most companies do sell of their lists.

    aweber has a good autoresponder srvice I think they also have good prices on mass mailings
