    Hi, I got my hand on a lot of e-mail addresses of people who entered in a contest on a specific topic.

    What can I do to make some money with this? Can I use it for Facebook targeting? Or simply start sending mails to them?

    Any ideas ?

    Cheers

    J.

    Are there targeted? Spam them with targeted cpa offers.

    I can get you about 10 mil email addresses in 10 minutes, however chances are at least half of them are generated/fake, then another quarter not in use anymore, and bottom line they are probably pretty much useless.

    These are real people because I got their names and answers to the contest as well :)
    Most of them even got their mobile phone number in the spreadsheet...

    I suggest you start spamming them with some offers.

    Since they are from a contest, then your list must be at least somewhat targeted. Find CPA offers that are in the same niche as the contest and then start sending. If you have additional information about them that could help you personalize the e-mails to make your conversion rate higher, do that. I hope you have information about their locations (countries) because a lot of the offers are country specific. It's pointless to send people offers that will not pay you leads from their country.

    It really depends on how you acquired those emails.

    How much you know about those people, things like what are they interested in, location, age, gender. Without having minimal info for at least one or two about these things it's very hard for us to give you an advice different from ''send them an offer''.

    I am glad that you have the emails at your disposal. You however need to know that the emaisl can be a source of income for you or bring no single dollar to your account. There is always a need for you to try and profile the users you are having through the emails. That will help you know how you can handle them without really spammming them.

    As Bleght already said you can send them similar cpa offers. Similar though I mean somehow more broadly than you might think. You have to choose what offer would intrigue this audience assuming they have some common attributes such age, gender, fans of the same football or whatever team etc.
    However you might have some hard time finding a way to bulk mail them and finally land your offer to their inbox. THIS is the real challenge.

    Simply start sending emails. There's lot of threads on this forum regarding "email marketing". Start by searching that in the search box for some gold nugget tips.
    Good luck inboxing them if the addresses are not opt-in to your list.

    I Think Netflix and House of Cards because the answer seems to be "Frank Underwood" :)

    These are all people in my own country. I got name, surname, language, e-mail, mobile number and some more info about the marketing campaign.
    I believe I can make a custom audience in Facebook to show them specific ads? Maybe the best way to start I guess.

    probabily, but if you have acquired in a legit way, just keep, sending email newsletter on some related topics
