    Hi guys

    I'm launching a SAAS product and made a targeted list of businesses I want to email.

    I have a business e-mail account that is hosted via Gmail.

    Had few of questions regarding e-mails, any advice will be greatly appreciated (I'm new to this):

    - Should I use my business gmail account to send the emails or use some sort of e-mailing software?

    - How many e-mails can I send every day without being banned?

    - I read the C-SPAM act and planning on informing recipients things like my locations and providing a way to unsubscribe. Even after doing that, can I get into trouble and will my e-mails be considered spam. The e-mails I send will be very personalized.

    Thanks in advance

    CanSpam doesn't apply to B2B

    Do more research on this

    With that said.... Make sure you have a professional-looking picture with your business Gmail account

    Also, make sure you don't oversell in your first email

    Give out a free consultation or something...

    Tip: use a software to auto follow up in case of getting no reply from them. I use mailshake.com but there are others like rebump.cc

    That will increase all your rates, including conversion :)

    Yes I would also advise using your business GMail account or a Google Suites account. So your own domain is being used with GMail (I think this allows 2000 emails a day). Then hook into MailShake.

    It is much easier to use software. Preferably, if your website is wp, there is a free plugin called mail poet, which will allow you to manage email lists and sending via a php protocol through your domain. You can also, get a third party provider like sendgrid (free account allows 12k emails a month) and pay for whatever your needs are. Their prices are reasonable, and you can integrate send grid in the mail poet plugin.

    Its all pretty simple and easy to add and integrate.
