Building a list of email addresses can be one of the best investments you will ever make. There is a relatively low cost involved, and you can have thousands of names at your disposal. If you are an affiliate marketer (you sell other peoples products for a commission), then building a list of emails addresses is going to be invaluable. You can use this list as a tool to generate sales for your website, or can use it to build a mailing list for your own products or services. But for now, let’s talk about how you can build your own list of email addresses.
You can start by going online and doing a search for’mailing list’. You can do many searches, and you will find many companies that offer email lists. Be careful when choosing a company to buy from – there are many companies out there that try to sell you names for big commissions. I have purchased names from these companies, and let me tell you what happened to me!
I had a potential customer send me an email offering me a $50 product on the strength of my email marketing strategy. I did not sign up for his list, and never heard from him again. This was a terrible waste of time, because there was no way I could collect the information he sent me. So I went online, and found a company that offered double opt-in email marketing, and I signed up for that.
As a result, I am receiving massive amounts of emails from people who were interested in my services, and I can respond to them at any time. What is great about double opt-in email list rental is that if someone registers with their name and address, they cannot be contacted until they subscribe to your list. This way, you do not waste your time contacting people who have registered but have not subscribed to your list. That is a huge time saver, and I highly recommend it. It has saved me a lot of time, which has helped me build a huge list, and build more businesses.
Now, this company does not only supply email addresses and phone numbers. They also offer web hosting, domains, unlimited bandwidth, customized web designs, web promotion packages, traffic counters, domain locking and more. This is truly a remarkable service. I highly recommend them if you are interested in online marketing.
Now, if you are serious about building an online business, and seriously want to build a massive list, you may have a few problems. Because of my horrible experience with these guys, I am going to tell you the absolute last thing you should do when it comes to renting an email list. And that is to rent a list from a company that charges you a subscription fee to rent their email list. This is the absolute worst thing you can do, and it is literally what I did for years! Do not charge customers to be a part of your business.
What I found out about renting lists from companies like this is that they all share the same prices. So basically, what you are doing is renting a list that other people made a lot of money with. The funny thing about this is that these lists cost almost as much as two six-figure earners doing direct sales at their own website. You’d be amazed at the amount of money you can actually make after spending just a couple hours researching for a decent list. In my opinion, it is insane to charge customers an arm and a leg to be a part of your business, but that is just me talking from experience.
My suggestion is simple; do not rent lists. Instead, purchase multiple lists from different sources, and then share the resell addresses amongst your team. This will ensure that you always have the most up-to-date information on your customers, and you will always have a list of names ready to go when your campaigns launch. Also, consider the fact that these lists cost pennies a day, which means that it is far more affordable to buy a single, double opt-in list instead of a triple opt-in list. If you want to get started with email marketing, the best way to do it is to start with a single, double, or triple opt-in list.
