Hi BHW! Am new to the forum and have learned a lot in the last few weeks. From the little i learned here i was able to acquire 15,000 email addresses from a very popular site in my country. I used a too called Email checker to check the validity of the addresses, which later cut down the total numbers to around 12,500. Problem: I run a tech blog in my country and am looking at the best possible way to benefit from these email addresses without being too much of an asshole spam, and maybe generate some traffics. I used mailchimp free version to test with 1,500 of the contacts and so far i have had only 200 opens and 10 unsubscribes. Meanwhile mailchimp reported a 97.8% delivery rate. It seems a lot of users got my mail but didnt open them. I also added my personal gmail to the list and i noticed the mails didn't drop in my primary tab but promotion tab which i think people rarely look at. What can i do to make my emails drop into the primary tab instead of the promotion tab. What other ways can i use to profit from the list?
