    Hello BHW,

    I am looking to start list building and setting up a business through email marketing. The problem is I don't want to spend $1,000 or so to build a list .Would it be a good a good idea o start off the bat with a list of 40M or so? I am leaning towards it but I fear that the list is being blasted SO much that I won't have any credibility, and since it most likely won't be opt in my emails will go to the junk folder. Would it be smarter to build a good list in the long run or just blast 40M emails really quick and hope for a couple of conversions since it only costs $5.

    A huge list isn't worth anything if it isn't targeted to a certain niche, and doesn't reach the inbox of the recipients. If you're looking for credibility and really high conversions, you have to build a relationship with your list first.

    Also if you're going to mail these people and you want to comply with CAN SPAM, I'm pretty sure you need to have had them op-in. If you use Aweber or similar, you'll have a hard time convincing them to let you send to your list via their mail servers. With that said, there are a couple of guys on here who guarantee great inbox rates for "untargetted" messages.

    Do not buy list from Fiverr. Its really wastage of $5. Because this kind of list also available on net for free.
