    I just want to ask a simple question. I have a wine store but I am closing it now due to bad economy. I have 900 customers email that are subscribe to my website. How can I make money to 900 emails that is wine related? If I'm gonna sell them how much do you think will it cost?

    That is quite tricky...since you're closing down your wine business and you still have opt-ins, one thing that comes to mind is signing up with a wine affiliate program such as wine.com where you link your site with theirs and you don't have to handle any physical products or even refunds and you'll still make good use of your wine knowledge. As a business man, I would advise you not to sell your 900 emails, if you don't have anything to sell them at this time, just keep feeding them with good information that is worthwhile until you set up a proper affiliate site. Selling those emails will probably get you $0.10 - $0.5 per email. Its not worth it if you ask me especially considering how much time it took to gather them and resources of maintaining them...

    Well, the fact that you're closing down your wine business would not necessarily mean that everything goes down with it literally. Introducing wine affiliate or dropshipping models into your old website will show continuity and people may not even know it. People hate to be sold, these customers are your friends and you understand them better than anybody else...stick with them and test out those methods I've suggested to see how everything converts, I know times are hard but a paying customer is always a priceless gem! Goodluck buddy!
