    Hey, I've just created my first newsletter which I'm going to send out (updated) every week to my subscribers. I have about 30 emails atm which I have got from my audience on Instagram, mainly through offering them free shoutouts. This means they also actually like what I have because they already follow my Instagram account.

    I want to grow my email list much bigger; I also want those emails to be targeted so they will be interested in what I have to write about. Are there any bots, free or paid, that make it able to scrape real, targeted emails?

    Or are there any methods which you use which aren't generic and already largely known outside of bhw?

    *I posted this on White Hat SEO but never got any replies, I think that was the wrong section I did it in.*

    Right here
    Let me stop you right there. What you're asking for is an engaged audience, willing to hear your voice. A bot, is by definition, NOT the way to do that. A bot can get you numbers, a bot can get you traffic, but a bot will never get you engagement.

    It's a message I keep on repeating but there's no substitute for hard work. You have 30 now - aim for 300, then 3.000, then 30.000. Talk to other Instagram users in your field. Get your voice heard, but don't resort to bots if you are serious about building yourself as a brand.

    There's no such thing as quick-win online. What looks like an overnight success to you, is the accumulation years of trial and failure that went unnoticed.

    Read this article, there are many nuggets of wisdom in there:

    Best of luck!
