    Aight so a couple of us over here figured out a way to scrape Facebook Custom Audiences-ready emails.

    These are super targeted (by interest, location, first name, last name etc etc), active and unspammed emails and we can also verify whether these emails are connected to FB accounts. We believe we created something extremely valuable here because these emails cannot be found anywhere else.

    I'm talking about xxx,xxx number or emails, maybe even xx,xxx,xxx. Yeah, millions.
    Anyway, high-quality emails that can be both marketed to directly using bulk mailing methods or used in Facebook Custom Audiences advertising.

    However, we hit a roadblock. We're all kind of more programming/coding oriented. We did a couple of tests tho. 1 of these in particular yielded $50 earnings with $20 ad spent. The crowd was some 2000 very targeted people or something like that IIRC, but we couldn't test more because our accounts got banned. We tried Mailchimp but all our accounts but 1 were instantly banned. Here's a SC of one email we sent to 2000 of these emails - http://prnt.sc/con3xs

    We realize there is great potential in this, but we're stuck on proper monetization part.
    So, what would you recommend we do? Bulk mailing, FB ads, something else... We're open for all and every suggestion, information, some kind of deal, whatever you think would suit what we have here.

    Thanks in advance

    Can you give more detail as to why you were banned? I haven't worked with fb custom audience emails. Are these @Facebook emails?

    Well, seems like FB doesn't appreciate Clickbank products heh :D - I suspect that's why we got banned. No, they are regular emails (hotmails gmails etc) but they are connected to Facebook accounts.

    Your FB account got banned, or your mailchimp? Or both? I'm guessing youre saying it cost you 20$ to acquire these emails which you then hit with the offer. I don't understand what Facebook has to do with the clickbank products because I assumed you directly emailed their gmails after acquiring them (therefore bypassing facebook)?

    Everything got banned, FB and Mailchimp. No, I scrape emails myself. A % of these emails can be used in FB Custom Audiences for targeted ads.

    Why would you use these to build a custom audience to FB? Facebook already have the data you do (and if I understand that's where you get it from).

    If we're talking millions, and you can connect to FB to get first/surname - there's some fun things you might wanna try out when it comes to normal ads.
    One of this is for example include the first name of the person in the ad text. I remember I did this with scraped audiences in the past and got a CTR of 30% (normal around 8% for that niche).

    But yeah, I would go with email, log opening events and those that don't open, retarget if you wish.

    Well, these emails give you the same options as scraping FB user IDs back in the teespring days. However, we don't scrape them from FB, we just "connect the dots" sort of.

    Yeah, creating FB Custom Audiences based on first name/last name is also an option, however none of use have a lot of experience with FB paid ads in general, so we're kinda stuck...

    OP, you can abuse the fuck out of those self-serve emailing platforms if you take the time to research and reverse-engineer them. If you do find some, make sure you deploy everything Friday night so you'll have the whole weekend cause I guarantee that it'll be patched come Monday morning by the tech team (this gives you the most exposure time). If possible, never use their links either cause those will be zapped too as you know people won't get to your emails right away.

    Erhmm.. no. Use multiple dedicated servers, with at least 5 unique C-nets, content and url spinning (for example wildcard subdomains etc).

    Your advice will probably result in a whole bunch of emails sent out from the platforms with links that doesn't resolve, and thus is that email
    most likely burned.

    Yeah you're right, I don't have a clue what I'm talking about. Its not like I've sent out 20-30MM emails this way before, for free mind you, using top-tier self-serve companies with white-listed IPs.

    I'm not against churn and burn for some quick cash, but something more of a long-term would be better. I mean, if we can do both, why not...?

    Well best thing is to mail them with an offer of some sort. But as always cold emailing will be very difficult.

    You can set up your own mail server with interspire or similar, or maybe post in the JV section and team up with someone who is experienced with email.

    There are several ways to do this but I can't really go into specifics, not in a public place like this at least, sorry...
