    Do you have a plan regarding how you are going to send all those emails and get a good inbox rate too? Not to mention without getting your landing page flagged and listed for spam?

    I ask because I have seen a few people buy large email lists before thinking they are going to make shit tons from it but they fail to think about the two points I mentioned above.

    It totally depends. Are those optins or did you just scrape them?
    Also: are they niche specific or just scraped from all over the internet?

    Sending the emails shouldn't be an issue, I'm very patient, I've worked out I can send 24000 per day per account I open with a Hostgator for $0.01, I've purchased the list so not sure John3020. My main issue is how can i monetize them? what emails should I send for what products or services?

    But you should know what niche the emails are from. You should be able to work niche specifically if you want to get high quality sales lol

    What information do you already know about these email addresses. Where did they opt in at? Did they opt in at all? Are they from businesses or are they personal? What do you know about the people who's email addresses you have? Do these people have something in common?

    Ask yourself these questions and you should have a better idea of what to do.

    If you have just purchased a list and have no idea about anything regarding about the people on it other than the fact that you have their email address, it's most likely going to be useless to you.

    Content lock it behind some CPA and let the noobs fund your summer instead of learning a whole marketing niche built on hope of 1 list.

    Thanks for your feedback, that's more what I'm looking for, unfortunately I don't know what Content locks behind some CPA means, care to point me in the right direction?

    EDIT - I know what content lock is now, what CPA should I use and what should I content lock.

    If you don't know what niche the list is interested in, take 5% of those mails and rotate the 3 big niches: money (how to make money online), dating (single girls are in your area) and health (weight loss). Plenty of offers for that are on clickbank. You can also search for more on offervault.com.
    Ideally you are split testing 5 different lead-ins, 3 different landing pages and 2 different offers for each niche. That should give you sufficient data to see what offers are bringing in the most revenue with your list. Be sure to track everything so you know which campaigns to scale up and which ones to throw away.

    This is what I would do, how did you get this list? I feel like there's a good chance it's not a very good list and something that's sold to a lot of people from what I'm reading here.

    Thanks @uncutu that's exactly the answer I was looking for, I'll update on my progress.

    Hi Stove, I purchased it from somebody I worked with in the past, it wasn't an expensive list however so was worth a try!

    With a scrapebox license, I imagine it's easy to scrape millions of emails from the internet. There's also GSA email spider, which comes with a demo. Since they're not opt-in or anything, that's likely what the creator of the list did.
    Scraping emails is easy. Inboxing them in bulk is the hard part.

    You are doing this trough Hostgator's phpList software or some other way? And how do you know that your emails are going to peoples inbox and not spam?

    I can send through Hostgator or Bluehost , and that's something I'm going to work with, to be honest It's just something I'm testing out if it doesn't work out it's not something thats detrimental. I'll be putting the list for sale on the marketplace shortly.

    I meant content lock the list itself and go link it on noob sites, it cant be of any use also as each day passes it loses value.

    If you give it away you may get a few cpa omissions.
