    If you can obtain a list of 4000 e-mails of people who shop on Amazon, what would you do to monetize them?

    I was thinking of making an Amazon blog, but I feel like that would be more of a long-term thing. If I already had access to the e-mail list, I probably would want something short-term to monetize.

    Millions of people shop or have shopped on Amazon, so unless the list comes with more details I don't think it's worth anything. Beyond sending them an email with Amazon affiliate offers and saying something like "Thanks for shopping at Amazon" or "We want you back", but this would imply that you're pretending to be Amazon so I wouldn't do it myself. Either way, I don't think the list has much value.

    The best thing to do would be to set up an amazon blog with affiliate links and invite them to join. Send weekly emails with special offers.

    Buy a domain like amazona.com or amaz0n.com (you get the idea)

    Then use a standard Amazon email as a template (like the following)

    [​IMG]

    Obviously all links would be changed to your Aff link

    If you know how to set the 90 day cookie then you might get a result


    I haven't tested this, so if you get banned from Amazon (probably) or get sent to prison then you are on your own mate.

    You'd definitely get screwed by amazon if you tried using their copyrighted logos and posing as being them. No sane person would/should try to do this.

    Add them into an opt in list, what was the niche that you got them from and the type of products you sold them?

    Do you know any info about their previous purchases. It's obvious, but find out what they purchased before and cater to it with email offers.

    Yildiz is right. Years ago I made the mistake of doing something similar with a big warehouse store that starts with a c. I got slapped down immediately. They have teams that monitor their brands' domains and will send you notice via your whois. Don't waste your time.

    Instead, perhaps you could find a service that could tell you the demographics based on email addresses? I think I remember a service that will do that. Then, market AMZN affiliate products that match that demo.

    I'd run them through a system of figuring what products they left reviews on or categories they bought from. Then, make an amazon store based around the category bought from the most. Email blast with the URL. Obviously I do not need to say the emails need to be of a certain creative construct.

    What did you end up doing? I would think most people would think you just another spammer.

    Start your own online shopping site (you can find scripts on the Internet) and list the offers from amazon with your affiliate. Send it to your list once a week and wait for your customers turn. Make sure to post attractive offers in your site and also use a catchy email swipe.
