    Hi everyone!

    So here is the thing. I have fresh targeted e-mail list of the website owners. Actually I have e-mails of website owner of 3 niches. Every list has around 1k e-mail so I was thinking how can I monetize them or sell them?

    Can you give me some advice because I am new in this e-mail think.

    Thank you!

    Reselling fiverr gigs is a good way. sell them backlinks, articles, make videos for their websites etc.

    That could be one way to go about it. Just make sure that these gigs are quality, this way you can build a good reputation. If you provide quality work, they will continue to come back to you for all their new sites. You can also set up referral programs for them as well. This could entail you giving them a free service or w/e if they bring you a customer.

    echoing the points made above, marketing services is the best as you can build a reoccurring income that can grow beyond the list. Think of the list as a jump start to your gigs.

    Unless it's something that they'll need or want, ie: good backlinks, articles, etc - please don't email them. This is a personal request. I have several sites, and get bombarded by spam day in and day out. "Oh can I do your logo for cheap" (looking at YOU gina's logo design). Yeah, I don't need a logo or a webdesigner - thank you. With that said, here's some advice:

    1) If you can truly show in the split second that you are personal and reaching out to me, you have my attention. Addressing me & my site in particular by name, and not some canned response - you have won half the battle. Also don't send a generic "subject" line. Say something like, "Hi Mike, wanted to reach out to you with general questions." Get to know them, and not act like a spam e-mail marketer.

    2) Get a conversation going, see what these people's pain points are (if they have any), and see if you can figure them out and solve them. I'd be willing to pay some good money if, for example, I have a list of emails of my consumers, but don't know how to write a "warm touch email" (simply touching base with your previous clients seeing if they are interested). Email marketing campaigns is a learned technique, and if you can teach it or help me set up one, I'll hand over cash.

    3) A/B test these emails. You have a few thousand in a niche? Good, dial for dollars. Learn as you're getting in touch with these people. Maybe website design IS their issue. As you're sending out maybe 20-30 unique emails a day, you'll start getting responses. Get in touch with them first, see what their issues are, and learn. Send more emails. It's all a numbers game.

    Once you have that figured out. Say, website owners for widget A are all having issues with social media marketing, or getting new clients, or ranking in the SERP's - then you can monetize that traffic from a knowledgeable standpoint.

    Good luck.

    Anything SEO related generally goes to trash, when it comes to webmasters (that aren't new to the scene). You'll need to be creative.
