    Well i have an email list.
    Niche is Education (I think its saturated)
    That list is clean... i guess :D
    Scraped them all myself.

    About 70% from that list are only professors who are working on different Universities.
    The other 30% are working for/in Universities.

    Actually i have an idea but i want to think a little bit more about it.

    You guys have any ideas?
    Is it even worth the work?

    Have a nice day

    Sry about my bad english ;)

    Send emails with a product to them or rent your list. You can easily get some money from renting if you don't have any idea of what to send.

    Rent = Loose

    But thanks anyway for your suggestion! Well i have a Product but it´s hard to find something that could buy all professors or something in which the most are interested.

    Something more? :S

    You don't give it you rent it. They give you a message and pay you for sending it to your list and showing them the proof that you did so. That's all.

    It's a good idea to rent your list. but you need to promote yourself to be able to do it. also you need some tools to track the sending and get the stats but alot of tools are availabe. communication agencies do that often. you can also try to sell a product think what is the product that would interest a university professor ?

    I searched them all by some criterias.

    I have 2 Ideas how to setup that e-mails but i dont have a Product . Hard to find something in which 80% of the Proffs are interested...
    Maybe some People would call this easy but my english skills are not good enough. And that actually infuse also my research.

    Well i try my best

    Btw, something about me and myself:
    I´m actually running an Company which exist since 21 Years. But its a really really small Micro Niche.In the last 4 Years since I have 50% of the company we just submited 2 weeks/year some padfiles. That was enough work for the years.
    Anyway we have about 2 sells in the Year but thats enough to live.
    But i raise for more. Actually i´m planing something in my native language.
    I´m from Europe but actually living on the Canary Islands.

    I have been monetizing purchased data(email) for over 16 years.

    I'm not a fan of scraped data, as you will almost certainly scrape spam traps and many of the addresses are likely to bounce. This will kill your chances of being able to successfully send the list as the IPs you send on, will quickly become blacklisted / blocked. Plus, scraped data isn't allowed under can-spam, if your sending to US users. So at a bare minimum if you insist on sending it, I would get it cleaned by a email hygiene company, to at least help reduce the risks.

    The smarter way to make money mailing is to buy data where the users have provided permission to receive third party messages. Plus, this way you aren't spamming. That's not to say you will never get a spam complaint. But if you ever get asked for the opt-in record because of a complaint, you can provide it. Which you can never do with scraped data, so you will never be able to scale your business and make any real money.

    In addition, the best way to monetize data is by sending free or almost free offers. The way that I do it is...

    I heavily promote PPL (pay per lead...lead generation) offers, because there is no credit card / purchase required to complete an offer. All a user has to do is fill out a form to get paid. So conversion rates are typically much higher. I also promote free sign-ups(dating for example) and free trails(weight loss, ecig, etc...). Lastly, I promote a limited number of offers that are 100% purchase. Theses usually will have some form of savings related to something very popular, be something unique/novelty or solve a house is on fire type problem. These offers are more of an impulse buy. In the end, all the offers that I promote have mass appeal...will be of interest to a very large audience, because it helps increase my conversions and also makes it easier to cross promote the offers.

    So the key is to promote offers that have mass appeal that are mainly free or almost free offers, but still pay well. This offers the path of least resistance to getting conversions and turning the data into cash producing assets.

    Now, there is more involved than just getting data and mailing offers, but it really does work. Everyone that I know that is in the business and knows what they are doing, does 6-7 figures. Granted that's a huge range, but much comes down to ones ability to scales and effectively manage the infrastructure that comes with scaling.

    Anyway, something to think about.

    First of all i have to thank you for that information.

    That list ist clean i guess...
    Why?
    Already did an Campaign with that list.
    How?
    Used it as a 1Time e-mail campaign
    Why?
    Because i sell an Product (I have all copyrights(That are Databases)) !
    Made an special offer for Universities.
    And now?
    I sortet all out and deletet all email adress who answered for an unsubscription.
    Everything went clear.

    So now i have that List but how could i use it exactly for something else?...

    These users sound like they have good jobs, are older in age, more than likely own a home / vehicle, etc...

    So I would send financial oriented PPL offers. Life insurance, health insurance, car insurance, mortgage, all homeowner related offers, etc...

    How do you plan to send your mailings?
