    Alright guys,
    I have a social bookmarking website which has currently 102k+ members
    and on other hand I have 150k+ members in my article directory.

    All emails are double opt in, means they are verified.
    I am thinking to do a email blast, around 70% emails are from USA.
    I have a VPS server from hostgator which allows unlimited email sending.
    But I am not gonna send all of them at once may be around 3-4k per day.

    But should I do CPA or should I sell products?

    Should I hire a designer and create a landing page with my own product?

    I dont want to put advertisement on my websites because they looks ugly.

    Please can someone suggest me, how can I monetize it?
    Because at least I want to earn the expenses they are costing me.

    Thanks in advance..

    Above you in the SERPS
    Likely most of these sign ups were done with Sick Submitter and AMR so it might not be as easy to monetize...

    If you have a good amount of "real" users as well I would go with content locks and pop up banners...
