    So some time back I came up with a way to collect a few hundred to a K new details a day.
    The list includes full name, zip, phone, email, city and are all Swedish.

    The information is gathered trough an autoresponder so it ain't scraped/available from google.

    I had it running for a few days just for the sake but didn't really bank anything out of it as I didn't know how to monetize the list.

    Is it worth to blow the dust of this method and keep collecting the info?
    How do I monetize such a list? Is there any way beside emailing, which I would rather skip (server fees, required time put into this etc..)?
    Sell to a CPA company? What would you?

    Any input on the subject is appreciated!

    If you sell the list it'll become blacklisted real quick. If I were you I'd try to determine a niche the list members may be interested in and then spam them with an email leading to the landing page for the offer.

    Either that, generically, or specifically if you know what these people are into, old school sales marketing, just go after leads from the list and sell....

    Thank you Bartio. But I believe there would be to much time into this if I do the mailing myself.
    As far as I know there isn't any good solution to send those emails w/o a server which also would include a lot of testing for CTR and inboxing.

    There's however a 3-step breadcrumb(category's) included for each person in the list for more targeted campaigns.
    Which in my opinion wouldn't be worth it for a few hundred mails a day.

    This is pretty much a set end forget method from my end and just wanted it to bring some extra cash.
    I might just get a domain and set an away message (autoresponder) to promote something general and see how it goes.
