    Hello, I own 100k+ active college student emails in the US. I used to promote Amazon student prime but they discontinued the program. Any suggestions how I can make use of this list?

    It's not 25 cents sir. 25,000 student emails. No spamming meant though but I intend sending them educational articles from my website (about to be launched) containing my Amazon affiliate links

    There is no such thing as free lunch. In your offer, there is no incentive for me to give you 25k emails. That simple.

    Do you also have any data to go along with e-mails?
    such as location/gender/field of study etc.
    those could be helpful for really niching down with possible promotions.

    If it's just active e-mails in general, you could try to build an active audience out of them for some general college student stuff, be it a blog/website, or otherwise just take the easy route and blast them with offers for their demographic.

    If this list is legit, you can make a long-term income with it though, so id suggest you think about what college students need/want, give them that and make a huge passive income.

    I'm a newb at best but hope that helped.

    Promote learning courses like from scott h young, promote memory courses, part time online earning etc.
    You could promote lots of offers to students.

    First, thank you guys for the suggestions! I really appreciate that.

    Yes, and other emails as well including Gmail, Yahoo, Hotmail etc. I do not know about CTR because I did not manage emails myself. I sent Amazon student offers through Amazon's email sending form. I actually automated it with Imacros. Out of 50k emails (these just were edu ones) I generated 200+ signups which I think is pretty good considering that some of them might not even be using their edu emails or they probably already had Amazon Prime and were not eligible. Next month I am getting 100k more. I am worried about how I am gonna send these emails. I mean, do I need to have my own email sending platform on my own VPS? Like on Digital Ocean..(?) Or, through some established service. But, I am afraid such services do not allow email addresses who haven't explicitly subscribed to your list. Definitely, these students haven't subscribed to my list...

    Nice suggestion, haven't visited Clickbank for a while. I am sure I can find something on it but how sending's gonna work out still bothers me.

    Nice ideas, thanks for the input!

    You now actually gave me a good idea. A blog or something like that with articles with offers in them might be a way to go.

    One more thing I'd like to know is how sending is generally executed. What service should I use to send emails?

    You ain't getting something for free here.

    Anything of value you have to work for. OR pay.

    Again, I'm just a newbie, but I would suggest registering for several online e-mail service providers.
    You will need to prepare your opening message well and send it to everyone at the same time so it doesn't get flagged as spam too quickly.
    Try to make your 1st email some kind of an opt-in ideally.
    After that refine your list by removing bounce e-mails and stuff like that, go to a new provider because the one you are using right now might hate you already, and you will be good to go with a smaller, refined list.

    Most important thing is avoiding the e-mail spam filter, that's something I'm learning about currently. You can read up a lot about it online, and most importantly here on BHW. Can't post any links for you right now since I don't have the post count.

    well you could selling autocad and maya on ebay or some other site because it's free with an edu email. That's all i can think about though

    First thing which comes in mind is Job Offers. You can also promote some lucrative methods of Making money from Home or similar.
