    Hey guys,
    So I have obtained a list of leads for people who are interested in IM/working from home niche. The list is about 13k email addresses. This list was given to me by someone and I did not gather the emails myself.

    I want to do a double opt-in to make sure everything is by the books according to the CPA networks.

    This is my first time doing anything like this so I want to make sure I do it correct.

    Do I:

    1. Add the list to aweber and then send out an email containing my free product link with an email enter page and a follow up double opt in confirmation email?

    OR

    Do I

    2. Send them a little email describing how they can get a totally fee ebook on IM and include a link to a squeeze page which in turn would make them enter their email address again and access the ebook that way.

    Basically what i'm trying to say is do I need a squeeze page if I already have such a large list of email addresses? If I don't need a squeeze page what is the proper way of getting them to double opt-in? What should I send in the first email that goes out to the list?

    Thanks in advance for the help!

    I think aweber sends them a confirmation e-mail after you add them. After they confirmed you are free to send them stuff.

    Ok I see. So even though the people on this list did not opt in to a specific product that I am providing them yet it's ok to import the list? Or is this a grey area?

    Hi,
    I've never mass emailed before but I don't to get reported by Aweber for spamming. So as a one time email blast how would I do this? Is there another service I can use that doesnt care about it possibly being reported as spam? I just want to blast the whole list once with an offer and see what happens.

    Psychology, execution, packaging, and many other factors create or break sales. Basic foundation layout, then pour in the cement, then build the house, then make money renting the house out to others. Apply that to your method, start by knowing who you are marketing to, why they buy, what they want in buying, etc. Scale up and enjoy.
