    Need some input. I have recently started a site that collects info from people that play a game I invented. I get their real names phone and even real address. They all opt in to be mailed by my site or affiliates of my site (aka anyone I sell their info to) I am trying to find out who I can sell this info to or how I can make money from this. The site is brand new and I get about 1k sign ups a week. PLEASE HELP

    Well the most obvious option would be to just join a few CPA networks and bombard them with related offers about games like darkorbit and such.Another way to go would be CB if i remember correctly there used to be a product about making money by playing games i guess that might interest your audience as well.

    If the leads are global it might be a bit hard to sell them to a local company and the major companies probably wont be interested in that since they have their own channels to get leads. But if you can sort out the leads by city/state/country then you can probably be able to sell their names and addresses to smaller offline businesses like penny arcades and local game stores that do flyer distribution. Of course you can always sell the leads to another online marketer but chances are he wont pay you as much as a real business would.

    if you want to go blackhat then
    create a hack for your game :p
    start selling the hack and email all your players [obvio not from your original email]
    later deactivate it..
    you will need a coder..
    i had read this somwhere..

    What I'm trying to find out is if I can sell their info to some companies. I have their name,phone,email and physical address. Plus they have agreed to be contacted by companies affiliated with the site.

    I wouldn't bother selling the info to another company. Just keep your list and send them affiliate offers. I'm sure you would make a lot more money then just selling the info once.

    Personal info selling? I think you might have jumped into something a little beyond blackhat. If you ask me you'd be better of selling the info you know personally rather than online.

    Sign up for any CPA network and recreate your opt-in requirements to capture their name, email and then confirm their email.

    One of those email inputs will be an iframe to an offer where you make $1 automatically per email, the other will be to capture for your list where you can go on grab easy auto responder sending gaming related offers making much more in the long run.

    If your traffic is really as you say it is, you could easily bank $600/wk

    You've got a very targeted list. 1k signups every week, damn that's a fockin goldmine.

    Try selling premium items ingame. Like super guns or armor for something like $5 a week LOL. All the big online games do it. Just wait till you have a community big enough so that the players feel it'll be worth paying for the stuff.

    Just do what teankemin said. Add a store down the line to where they will pay little amounts of cash but they keep coming back. It could turn out really really well.
