    I got the idea for this method from roach's thread of email scraping and getting sales. I knew that was a bit raw method with random sales, so I decided to add twist into this. I used wordpress newsletter plugin to automate this because some of the desktop based scripts were for windows only and I am running linux. Please let me know if there are any good for linux. So that I can use in future. This method I am using with my current wordpress website where I am also collecting the signups.

    Method:

    1) Get a wordpress blog (be it on free hosting or on your own) and make sure you have one landing page from where you are sending the traffic to offer. You can also send traffic directly if that's what you want, just use the cloaker like simplyurls in wordpress or prettylink or bitly. These plugins also has counter, so you know how much traffic you're sending.
    2) Get scraped emails (check roach's thread for the howto) OR get signups on your site. I can't offer help on that. If I get any idea I will post here about that.
    3) Use WP newsletter plugins like wysija or whichever works in automation to automate the mail blasting.
    4) Send few mails per hour and limit the mails.
    5) Change the mail and repeat the process.

    Note: some of the wordpress plugins for newsletter have good themes. Use them. It makes mail look more legit and less spam.

    I got 2 sales so far. I know it;s not that high earning. My niche selection must be bad I guess. Hope this helps for those who believe in "Never repeat yourself" aka automation methods.

    No need for reputataion or thanks. If you want to say thanks, do that to roach. It's his idea that sparked to what I have posted here. Just do this method and see if that works for your niche.

    Do you have a newsletter series already written and queuing in your autoresponder waiting to send out? Or you just write 1 email and only use that to send?

    Sorry for replying late. I do have few pre-written newsletter template. Right now I am adding product promotion after every alternate email. So one email has content and another promotion, and cycle goes on.

    For your emails with content, do you write them yourself or outsourced? Or are you using any PLR articles and turn them into newsletters?

    I am writing the content myself. No PLR and outsourcing.

    Another vote for the wysija newsletter plugin.

    It really is pretty nifty.
