    Well it depends......is the database yours? Meaning are they on ur list. If they are, then "nurture" them and milk them thru affiliate offers. If they are not, then sell it on dp or you could try the BST section here :)

    It's actually surprising that you haven't tried to monetize this database :)

    I would have thought you'd be sending them at least weekly tips and slipping in an affiliate product or two now and again. Periodically, you could review or recommend products that are related to the niche.:p

    Perhaps you can also segment the list. What I mean is that folks interested in dating might also be interested in sports, weight loss, public speaking, etc., so you could maybe include such offers (e.g. as a solo ad or as a 2 liner ad in your newsletter) when doing your mailing.

    Of course, shameless and "full court press" type pitch-fest emails that just sell and sell and sell might not work so well, but opinions regarding such marketing methods differ :rolleyes:

    Hmm.. you actually have the "assets" for setting a bunch of JVs too ;)

    May I contact you for JV campaigns ;)

    Heh... start monetizing your list, ok?

    Cheerio

    Thanks for your replies.

    Here's the thing. Its my database from my site which i sold and do not own any longer. I of course made a backup. Not sure if i should even touch it or not. I was thinking of doing some campaigns as a third party opt in from their signup agreement or something like that.

    What do you think?
