    I have a forum that isnt doing that well to be honest so i have decided to get email lists and add them as users to the forum and once a week send out a "newsletter" with a product or service etc.. Do you think this is a good idea and do you think it will work?

    I've done it, worked good. I tested it on a freewebs site, then upgraded.

    Why not just email and invite users? Or is that the point, you are just using the forum as a email tool?

    Pretty sure he wants to pre-join emails, so they are in the database, so when he sends the newsletter, it hits every subscribers inbox with his message. So if he has 100k members, in one email blast, that's 100k or roughly 100k inboxed emails.

    http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/members/130228-zpro2010.html you are rught that is exactly what i had in mind, well i did hope for a successful forum but that is failing to happen for me so this is the next best thing.

    Now my next problem is where and how to get valid email addresses as i dont really trust lists.

    I have been adding the people that add me on facebook (fake account) if they have thier email address shown in "Info" section.
