    I have recently obtained a fresh email list in my particular niche but want to use in a whitehat way as not to blacklist my website. How does one go about sending email, do I send it from the website email address, constant contact or some other service?


    Thanks

    hey

    u can split the list into parts of 5000 using a csv or excel splitter software

    import the list of 5000 at a time to ur fb page using invite email contacts..

    this way you can get genuinely interested folks to your fb page..

    for emailing solution, it is always blackhat to send email to anybody unless you know them personally or they sign up themself to your newsletter. you can use some underground SPAM house approved email marketers..

    use any email marketing software you can find in this forum. send around 5000 emails daily, search google about not getting you main to spam there are some factors that if you hould keep in mind so your website will not be blacklisted

    Yeah, sending out unsolecited email(s) is always to be considered SPAM.
    Anyway we are all here for the same reason (making money using white/grey/black techniques) so feel free to use them by using a little judge :)

    You just need to find a way for them to opt in. The facebook invitations is a great idea, then on your facebook page you can add a "sign up to our newsletter" button or something. However, i've tried importing contacts froma CSV to my FB page but it has never worked, not sure if I'm doing something wrong...

    Edit: unless in your previous privacy policy you said that their email addresses are shared with .. idk.. different branches of your company or something.. then I think it should be OK.

    You should probably use a service like Aweber and send an opt-in email before marketing to that list.

    That is a totally white approach, and I think that is the right way of doing email marketing, but I suspect that you are losing 99% of those addresses if you'd do that.

    Constant Contact gets my vote, or even better is MailChimp.

    Thanks for all the input, I had a retail website where most of them signed up for sales and newsletter emails, I don't have that website anymore :( my ex husband has it now and its non existing. I do have the list and basically wanted to promote my new website using this list. I was thinking about using the facebook approach but I may not get new customers that way so I thought of sending an irresitible offer $19.99 "niche product" that is reg $60+. It is possible the 2nd option of the email deal will not result in customers so I was going to use the fb page as a backup. What do you think about that?

    A few years back when I did black hat selling I had a smaller but more targeted email list that when one site when down or if they did not like the quality of product or customer service I would email them from a new email introducing another website. I never really has people opt out maybe of 5k 3 people. I do not spam Viagra offers or anything like that. Now, how can one prove they never signed up for a newsletter after all anyone can create a sign up via there website, or am I wrong?

    Technically you are right but the biggest worry for you is that the people who will receive your newsletters will report you as spam and with too many of those.. your IP address will get labelled as a spammer and then its big problemo. I'm not an expert on that, but I know that you can lose everything so be careful.

    First of all anything out of permission is called unsolicited email according to spam act, but in the industry most of the time when people hit your email message as spam, spam is considered and it proofs that poor hygiene of your list. First suggestions is for the best result always rely on permission based emailing. But that does not mean you'll not get results. If you have the target audience and your list is clean free from honey pots or spam traps sending them from proper email infrastructure can certainly craft good results for you. If you want to discuss about the general good practices of email marketing to ensure better inbox delivery or you want to setup you email infrastructure you can hit me up at adnan.ahmed227 Skype.

    Although if you are in expert with that but still you are right in your opinion. Technically one can say it is email sending reputation of your IPs that ensure better inbox delivery even if you are operating with high volumes, only a few complaints can ruin your infrastructure and email sending reputation as well. And sending reputation is something which you build with the passage of time, employing proper infrastructure for sending emails and warming up the IPs when they are new and reputation less.

    Email marketing software can never ensure delivery to inbox, and can never reduce your worry that you are sending to an unsolicited email list and you can either be spam foldered or can face actions like hit spam by the recipient. Therefore software certainly help you to perform action but ultimately SMTP configuration and compliance with Spam act mindfully ensure better outcomes.
