As I said in the title, I'm totally new to email marketing. I have a 30k email list from a niche that is prohibited by both Mailchimp and Aweber and I believe many others. Is there an alternative or is there a better way to setup everything myself? I was talking to one guy on skype (from this forum) who was offering to help me setup everything for around $500. As I have no knowledge in this field is this too much or too little? I'm looking for more options. If anyone can give me any suggestions how they would go about targeting this email list, that would be greatly appreciated.
