    Well I'm sure others have had this too, but I've been thinking of ways to get started in making money online.

    So basically what I will do is find highly targeted users that pertain to a certain interest, such as from a facebook page, or a youtube page. I'll take their email, and add it to a list. Once I have generated a list of a decent size, I will send out an email with an affiliate offer, or possibly even a product they can purchase.

    Is this illegal in anyway? I heard something about this being against spam laws. Are there any ways I can gain email lists and send out emails safely and legally?

    You will want to make sure your affiliate will accept your traffic coming from emails. Sometimes they do, sometimes they don't. I have some very large email lists that are laser targeted, if you wanted to get a jump start.

    its not easy to email blast.You need to study email spam filters.

    Its not just put your message,you need to spin your message links.You need also proxies.

    Technically its illegal and violates can-spam law. you can google that and read more about properly acquiring email addresses and marketing to them. Simply searching for email addresses then sending offers to them won't fly. But, if you do want to go that route, use an email harvester. you simply enter a keyword and let it scour the net and collect millions of email addresses that are targeted. Then get software like inter spire and push send. good luck
