    I have acquired an email list and am planning on promoting my product to a related niche. My product will add value to their life. I'm not asking them to buy anything- I'm more along the lines of asking them to sign-up for something.

    Yes, I understand this is blackhat and generally frowned upon. However, figured I'd ask since this is a 'blackhat forum' afterall.

    Any best practice for doing so?

    Well, no best practice for this, since doing this isn't best practice...

    However, if you really wanted to go the "right" way of doing this, I would suggest asking them if they would be interested in hearing what you have to say, keep your e-mail short, and if you do not get a response, do not contact these people again.

    Also, before you start doing things like this, read up on the Spam Act of 2003 to avoid any problems.

    The main thing is your Subject.
    1.Choose a catchy subject that induces the people to click on
    2.Your email should be easy to read. It should be short and people can understand easily.
    3.If you add any images make sure it's compressed and don't add more images in your email

    Spam is spam, regardless of how much "value" you're going to add to their life.

    I'm pretty sure that this is spam, not something worth pursuing really.
