    Hey, guys!

    I have scraped more than 10.000 e-mails (and still doing so) and want to use them for e-mail marketing. Which is the best free platform/way to do that? Unfortunately, MailChimp is a little bit expensive and I needed a free/low cost method at this first stage of my project. Also... is it possible to send directly by Gmail or is it too risky?

    Thank you!

    Did you scrape consumer emails and plan to send a B2C offer or are they targeted business emails and your going to send a targeted B2B offer?

    I was afraid you were going to say B2C.

    You are just going to end up scraping a bunch emails that are undeliverable and spam traps. When you try and send them, you are just going to get your account terminated or your IP(s) blocked / blacklisted.

    I have been monetizing data (email) for over 16 years and I would never waste my time with scraped data. The only exception is if I was creating a highly targeted business list.

    PM me, i have 10 years of experience in email marketing systems, also you should never scrape data because you will get too much spam-traps.
    so the solution now is to:

    1. clean the list against spam-traps
    2. do clean email marketing.

    My e-mails list has no spam since I got those e-mails using Facebook and it's definitely a highly targeted list... every single e-mail is a real person and they are interested in my product type.

    Mount a VPS with a email server well configured.
