    I currently am working for a white goods company, selling mostly refurbished / graded washing machines, fridges etc. Managed to get things running pretty well, AdWords is going fine, fb marketing is doing well and our twitter following is getting larger every day.

    My next plan is to improve our mailing list. (around 2k at the moment)

    I've ran some competitions giving away small electronics; tablets etc where people submit their emails to enter.

    Been trying to think of other ways to get more emails. The problem with the competition emails is they are not very targeted.

    - @Facebook emails are pretty useless as you can't bulk email to them without getting flagged. Our company Facebook account is too valuable to risk scraping these emails and then advertising to them.
    - Going to start scraping linkedin for emails.
    - I'm still trying to get in touch with people to access to other peoples mailing lists (UK only) that are slightly related to the niche.

    Any other expansion ideas would be greatly appreciated.
