    Let's say somehow you were able to acquire Groupon's entire list. Or LivingSocial's, or something like that. You have a high quality list of 5 million emails, the vast majority North American active emails with good power of purchase.

    What would you do to capitalize on it?

    Answers do not have to be limited to affiliate programs.

    If anyone has any ideas, especially ones you've tried successfully, I would be very appreciative if you shared those. I will give reps and help you in any way I can in return.

    Thank you!

    For me, I would say you create free report and distribute to the list. How to make money? Put CB link in the report and distribute them by using viral method.

    How to do get all those list?

    you have a lot of options, you can sell it, you can send them free coupons, or sign up for free in some program, etc, because 5M is a big number

    What about affiliate stuff? Like Amazon?

    Would I get banned if I created an HTML blast with some Amazon offer and link to my affiliate account?

    Depending where you got the list from, and what those people like to buy, I would make a site just for them that targets what they originally wanted. Could be good!!! Can I get a copy ; )

    I get the feeling, you have a list...

    As good as you claim?

    I may know someone with a list of 7.5 million, but a small tested resulted in most being no longer functioning emails.

    hi it will be impossible to email all of them people, if you load up all of them emails on aweber or icontact you will get banned if you get to many complaints, also if you have a script that does that you could get banned by your ISP for sending out to many emails..

    quick horror story, someone spammed my server and sent out 4000 emails and my ISP shut my internet off, they said if it happens 3 times Im banned for life.


    these people who scrape these big list have no idea what there doing, most of them use software without realizing the consequences.

    You don't have to use Aweber or iContact, you can use SendGrid or Amazon SES (Simple Email Service).

    I easily use SendGrid to send 100,000 cold emails (i.e. scraped, didn't opt-in) every month with good results.

    But does your list contain mostly free email addresses - i.e. Yahoo, Hotmail, Gmail?

    If it's mostly Yahoo or Hotmail, I advise you take them out of your list. They hit the "report spam" triggers like crazy.

    Anyway what niche or target market is your list in? Or is it a very general one?

    Or is it REALLY from Groupon or one of those coupon sites?
