    Hi guys,
    I have a small targeted email list of about 1k.
    I know this is wrong but I knew no better on how to send offers to this list.
    so what I did is used a email example(email @ myDomainName . com) (connected through gmail) to send these offers.
    ( I was offering webdesign services to local businesses who had no websites at all).

    I noticed alot of emails bouncing back while the rest seemed to go through.
    Also, I wasn't getting alot of replies actually I got 3-5 replies.

    How do you guys send emails to your lists?
    and is there anything to prevent them from going to their spam box?

    I make money through apps, so this email list idea is completely new to me.

    I did the work manually by myself in about 2-3 hours.
    what I did is used my local directory business listing website and found businesses that dont have websites and used their email.

    Try Aweber too. It's not free though but it's the best email marketing tool.

    If I send offers to these emails that I scraped without them subscribing or opting in, is that considered as bad practise? even though the offers will be sent to a targeted/potential client.
