Wasn't expecting but somehow I collected 20'000+ targeted emails, I now want to monetize them.

    Hi,

    Recently I shared a tool on a group for digital marketers. In order to download the tool, I asked to subscribe to my mailing list. I was not expecting this but the post exploded and more than 20'000 people subscribed.

    Since then I've been sharing other free resources with those new subscribers, I received hundreds of emails thanking me for my resources.

    I own a website dedicated mostly to graphic designers, I tried to promote my website to the new subscribers, but the campaign didn't perform as I was expecting. I think those new subscribers are not interested in my current graphic design content.

    I'd like to have some recommendations about how I could monetize this email list and what would be the most profitable approach.

    Best

    well the tool for what is it, if like something related too seo, like a ranking tracking app, or whatever, first you can keep them engaged, sending cool articles about SEO, like from the best bloggers in the niche, then time to time you can it them with other tools or books related to seo for example (sometimes there are some with 7 days trial, 1 dollar trial etc), so you are not really selling, but you will get commission if they subscribe to the tool/service. That is an example.

    The same method was applied by me in order to collect clients' list of emails.
