    To be honest I'm not sure if this has been shared before but I've seen a lot of threads recently with people asking about sending out mass email blasts using software that allows them to import lists. Not only have I found a solution for many of my clients but I've personally utilized this method myself and can say it works very well. So here I am, making a thread for the community to have access with an easily search. Here is my method that can be utilized to send out UNLIMITED emails drip fed and optional scheduling.

    Requirements:
    -Wordpress Install
    -Wysija Newsletter Plugin (Pro Version if you want to upload/send to more than 2000 users)
    -An email account (To send from and for people to reply to)
    -An email list (Shared, private, or scrape one yourself; I might share a method on how to scrape your own targeted lists)

    The Setup:
    Install Wysija, attach your license if you purchased the premium version. Setup your widget in your sidebar or footer, so that your website visitors can sign up for the newsletter. Import your own list with email and name if possible (you will only be able to upload 2000 contacts if you haven't purchased the pro version, it's only $99 a year). Next create your email templates that will be sent out.

    Scheduling:
    Be sure to set the plugin to send between 50-200 emails per hour maximum. This will ensure that your web server will not be listed as spam, and will prevent your email messages from being delivered to the junk mailbox. You can schedule when you want which template to be sent out to which group of contacts. Options are pretty much endless, I've setup some complex campaigns for some of my larger clients. Again if you use some twists and out of the box thinking, you can really benefit from using this method.

    Conversion:
    The plugin also comes with built in conversion to see how many people have opened the email, clicked on the link or offer inside the email and how many people have unsubscribed from the list. This can be coupled with your website analytics to calculate your conversions from first contact to sale.

    Final Tips:

    I tend to follow up afterwards with a phone call, with the highly targeted leads that are interested in our services. This method can be utilized in many different ways, and can be scaled with some out of the box thinking and twists. I'll setup coupons for my eCommerce clients and create email templates for all of the holidays through-out the year. I then schedule the coupons to work within a certain time frame, and I schedule the emails to be sent out prior to the event as a reminder. This has worked very well for my clients, and I charge them a one time fee for setup. You can also provide them with email lists for an extra cost. Established businesses will have no problems paying your fees because you'll be providing them with a positive return on investment.

    Good luck guys, any comments, feedback, or suggestions are greatly appreciated!

    I'm sure there are many plugins that offer the same functionality, but in my experience I've found Wysija to work very well. I've developed complex email marketing campaigns using only that plugin, which have been responsible for thousands of dollars of earned revenue.

    Try twisting and scaling the method, I'm not going to spoon feed you into making money with it, but use your imagination and I'm sure you can utilize this to earn some revenue, whether for yourself or for your clients.

    Does the email account matter much, like say the one attached to the hosting domain, or some offshore server?

    Also would you mind sharing how you scrape a targeted list or what methods to use?

    Or you could just use interspire. 1 cent hosting + 1.99 .info = 500 emails / hour = 12k / day

    Depending on the host you use, the send speed and the amount of emails you can send per hour will vary. The main objective is to not be flagged by the junk mail box, because every email sent from that account will be delivered into the junk mail box. Like any other blackhat method, they can be very beneficial when utilized correctly or very harmful is used incorrectly.

    In regards to sharing a method to scrape targeted lists, that will come in the future.

    Thanks for the input guys, if you have any questions feel free to post them here, I will answer them when I can.
