    Hi all ,
    I'd like to share a silly trick with you .

    I've an online store selling some items so I have enough data ( names ,emails and phone numbers ) of ppl who bought through my store .
    when I google the emails of my costumers to know more about them ( their jobs for example ) , sometimes I find their emails on other websites in txt files contain 100s of emails ,it seems that it's a list of a competitor who has a targeted email list , after getting this email list ,I add these emails to my email list which I use to offer discounts for my store .
    If you have a legit store selling legit items for good prices and fast delivery , I'm sure you will make good money by emailing these people offering 'em good discounts .

    I wish this help you making more money :D

    Nice trick, but if you do this in some countries you can get owned very fast for spamming (like in mine).

    A nice trick also:
    I google for the common footprints of stat scripts in addition with niche keywords from my shop. So many shops don't secure their stats. Found some golden nuggets in there...

    Yeah, wouldn't you risk spam complaints when doing that?

    You would, but it is a viable tactic for that extra potential conversion. :)
    As for myself, I'd personally use it for something similar - not discounting, merely promoting certain high selling items as my site relies on affiliating.

    You can search these emails on fb and add them as friends or invite them to events for example seasonal discounts , there are many ways to reach them ;)
