    Hello, I just want to see whats the best way to go about selling my email list. These emails were gathered over a period of 2 years (life of my site) and since I really don't know much about email marketing then I figured I would try to make some money off of it before I shut the site down. In short, I have sent out about 4-5 global emails to all my members and even then i dont know if I did it right..lol.

    All my members agreed to monthly newsletters and within our TOS we say that we have the rights to sell/distribute information as an agreement to registration.

    Right now we have about 340,000+ members which means that we have just as many emails. I can guarantee that AT LEAST 300,000 of those are valid.

    My partner and I have started a new site and will eventually move the traffic over there and have since purchased scrapebox and xrumer along with some other tools so thats where we will focus. I have tried too long to gather information about bulk emailing (as you can tell from my past threads) and I just dont feel like doing that. I will not sell the list to more then 3 people. We just need some quick cash to make up for our recent purchases.

    The niche in which these user's signed up for is a warez site. User's had to verify their email before they are allowed to access the content. If user's wanted certain email addresses I.E. @ yahoo.com, @hotmail.com, @gmail.com then that could be provided.

    I have never sold my list before nor do I know how much something like this is worth but I do have a slight idea.

    I've tried listing the list on BHW under "Items for sell" but since its moderated it has not yet been approved. Where can I actually list these for sell? I figured since this is black hat this would be the best place to start..lol

    I have attached pictures of current members and the area in which we download our list of individual emails in our admin panel.
