    Hello there!

    My name is Ryan and as of late I have been working to try to begin making money online due to real life circumstances not allowing me to work like a normal person.

    After research, and reading many articles and ebooks it seems one of the most profitable ways to earn is CPA. Today I spent a significant amount of time setting up email servers as well as purchasing a few mass email lists. These include:

    5,000,000 Business emails

    3,500,000 Personal emails

    30,000,000 Mixed/random emails

    I know these are no where near as nice as having a niche or customized mailing list but I am looking for the best way to monetize this well.

    From my research I believe the best way would be through affiliate sites such as ClickBank, WarriorPlus, JVZoo, and I have registered for all of these. I would love any advice on the best categories, message format, and title structuring.

    Thanks in advance! :D

    While this might not be true for anyone, but when I warm up my lists and then sell to them, the conversion rate is usually better.

    I do this with my own optin lists and not the bought ones, so results might be different for you.

    Also, just for future reference it is much better to make your own list, even though it takes a bit of time, but conversion rates are much better and easier to mail. The btb method in making money section and meathead method in making money section work good for this.

    Thank you for the advice! After searching the forums I have found references to these methods however I don't see the actual threads, if you happen to have the time would you mind linking me to either of those methods?

    Thanks!

    Those mails are probably scraped from somewhere, so its good idea to filter the bouncers. Here is two websites which filter the non-working emails:
    http://www.briteverify.com/
    http://kickbox.io/
    Rates are pretty high, but if you hit your clear list with proper campaign , they will pay out. I think that kickbox has some intelligent filter that weeds out the spammy looking emails.

    I am in no way affiliated and/or connected with those websites.

    So you have nearly 40 million emails and you're asking us what to do? You can probably make quite a lot from it, but your best bet would be to try and think of a product or offer that anyone could go for. So you're not about to go off and sell coffee machines or laser hair removal items or Testosterone booster pills.

    You need like, the perfect product for a list that's not targeted. Personally, I hate CPA and all that. Affiliate marketing is the route I'd take here, but that's just me. Who really is dumb enough to fill out content lockers nowadays anyway??

    With this whole blood moon thing coming up people are bound to be on the bug-out routine side, maybe promote survival kits? Fear is the easiest thing to evoke from people. A well-written email playing on peoples emotions and linking a YouTube conspiracy video might take you a long way. Come to think of it, this is actually a pretty good idea. Amazon has so many products fitting this category. Could sell MRE's, etc. Get creative?

    Best part is that it could easily be played off as a spam email, but further in lies the deception that you're actually not a minister or a Jehovah's witness but really a salesman for Amazon and the whole email is a front. Get spooky, think X-Files.

    Don't promote that same old,

    "Win a free iPhone if you just fill out this survey."

    crap.

    I remember when Y2K was going down as a kid, how many people were flooding the stores to buy stuff. Or during Hurricane Sandy, same concept even when it's about to snow a lot -- how people automatically switch in to buy-hoarding mode and follow everyone else into the lines. Even remember someone saying that sometimes the weather people are in bed with some grocery chains, but that's probably pushing it. So, that's what I think. If you can make people in your mails scared then you can probably get them to buy some stuff.

    Create a problem, create the reaction and offer the solution? That ole tried and true manipulative tactic.

    Buying lists is never a great idea. Get the list cleaned, and try to get them to opt-in on your own list. Going to be pretty pricey though. If you thought it was going to be step 1 buy list step 2 sell to list, you're going to have a bad time.
