    I originally joined BHW because of the Email Marketing section. Then it was taken away and then later moved to VIP.

    Please move it to the General forum so that all can access it.

    If WF can get by with it, surely BHW can.

    Thanks

    I remember the email section before they took it out, there was actually a lot of stuff that was shared that was extremely helpful at the time. It was right around the time I joined, or maybe even before, I can't really remember, I do know I was a super pup when it came to mailing and I learned a lot from the threads and posts that I read from there. I remember getting data from someone back then to mail, and I ended up doing like $1k a day from it, and my setup was horrrrrrrrrrible back then. Lol. It was a cool section to read and there were some really knowledgeable people that used to contribute back then as well. It would be kind of cool to see it opened up again to everyone.

    I can tell you that there isn't much activity there anyways. You can read the 40k month strategy or smth thread, it's full of useful advice on email list building.

    It actually would be nice to see a section like this, especially for those of us who are new to email marketing and want to develop a good strategy. For instance, learning how people set up their autoresponder series would be nice.

    I would agree that this section could be in General forum too.

    +1 For this. Can't see any reason not to open that for everyone.

    I agree. I would pay JrVIP just to have it moved back to General. I stopped paying because there was too little activity in the Email Marketing section since it was only for VIP members.

    That section is where I got my start. I learned enough that I was able to leave my job and start my own business. That was in 2011 and I still do email marketing today selling legit products to my niche list.

    Can any mod comment on this?

    remember the email marketing threads too. Coyotte was probably my fav poster. Unfortunately, There was a scam email sender program sold here that ruined it for all of us. BHW was taken down for awhile because of that software. No wonder BHW is nervous about email marketing.

    Right now, I just use GSA email spider and scrapebox for scraping emails. I use Google apps for sending out on gmail but am going to pay for another service to send.

    What I sell online: I write 30 articles for $1,000. Most are in the Home Improvement and contractor niche. I use email marketing to get my own clients. It doesn't take a lot of emails to be sent out to obtain clients.

    Keep posting and sharing, Coyotte. We love you!

    If I remember correctly BHW took the section down because Spamhaus threatened to list them.

    I second that. I uploaded a list with SoundCloud emails and this has been removed by a moderator. This is because the Spamhaus threats.
