Hello Everyone, I love reading through the threads of Black Hat World and discovered there are a lot of smart marketers on here. So I thought I would try to pick their brains with a question: I have done email marketing before, had my own dedicated sever and email sending software, and was able to send out thousands of emails per day. I used hostgator as my hosting provider, but was eventually shut down due to spam complaints. I made some money doing this, and found it to be quite a bit of fun. After I was shut down I didn't continue again as I had some health problems and was in and out of this hospital, but I have been thinking about doing it again. I was reading through some of the email marketing threads, seems like kickapooh does a lot of email marketing, and noticed he went through quite a few steps to clean the list. Such as taking out known spam traps, and sending an initial email to see which emails got through and cleaning the list. So my questions to other email marketers out there is: 1. Where do you have your servers that you use to send emails located at, another country? 2. Are you cleaning your lists like kickapooh? 3. Are you constantly changing ip's after they get blacklisted? 4. MAINLY, how do you keep from getting spam complaints and getting shut down? Sorry if this is a noob question, I am learning, and I want to be knowledgeable. I apologize in advance.
