    Hi folks, I have 5 millions email addresses, and I need a way to monetize them.
    Two ideas:

    1. A JV with someone to send offers and so on
    2. They are all for sale

    Don't know if this is the correct forum section, and I'm sorry if it is the wrong one.

    But I need a good advice ;-) I'm here to listen you (only serious proposal folks, you don't get them for free).

    Thanks

    I swear people never understand this.

    How were the emails scraped?
    Are they opt in e-mails?
    Have you broken up these emails by age, gender, geo location, etc.?

    Impossible to answer without having more details before finding someone to help you.

    You've said nothing about the list other than the size...

    - How did you get the records? Opt-in, double-opt-in, scraped?
    - Which country?
    - Which vertical? Finance, freebies/dd, health, untargeted?
    - Any other demographic info? Average age, gender?

    It depends how good the list is:

    Is it targeted?
    Is it double opt-in?
    Is it scraped?
    What is the niche?
    Do you only have email addresses, or do you have other useful data, such as age, income, location, etc.?
    How old is the list?
    How many new emails are you getting on a daily basis?

    Here's an idea to make money from the list:

    Get on a popular internet marketing forum and try to sneakingly sell the list to noobs. Maybe create a thread asking for help on how to monetize the list.

    Oh wait you already know that right?

    Ditto.

    At least the OP definitely won't miss it now.

    Ok guys, they are untargeted and not opted in. Recently hacked, but not from me.

    If these were scraped, then it's pretty much useless if you don't have the tools to verify each one.

    Otherwise, you need to give us more info. You can't sell a product or even a JV proposal without listing its features.

    Yea, if they arent targetted you might be just wasting your time sending them. Try though but you will get very low ctr and conversion rate.

    They are not useless. But I agree, it will be very hard since list needs to be cleaned. You will also get servers blacklisted and shut down for spamming.
    It's possible to make money from them but if you are asking what to do with them you are probably not looking into right thing.
