    Hi everyone!

    I want to launch an affiliate program for my business (I deal with brides and the process of getting married). I want to contact wedding event planners who would be dealing directly with my target market (soon-to-be brides) and let them know they can earn a pretty penny just for sending their customers my way.

    My current approach is to scrape YellowPages and email said companies.

    But first a few questions!

    1.) What do you think of my plan?
    2.) Does anyone know of a program which can scrape emails off of YellowPages?
    3.) Any recommendations for the best affiliate marketplace to sign up with? Or should I do my own on my site and track it all with a coupon code?
    4.) Will my domain be marked for spam if I send out thousands of emails a day? Is it better to use a gmail account at first?

    Thank you all very much!
