    Hi I read this Ebook 1 year ago if I remember correctly and it involved this method .
    It was about sending mass mails with a software like Atomic Mail Sender.
    That person was sending this emails to a free list wich can be found on google with about 1.000.000 emails ( not niche targeted ).
    He made a 5 page ebook about *How to make your computer faster* and sold it for 20$.

    Now I don't say that this works, this might even be bs..

    But what if you do the same but with CPA offers?
    Let's say you promote email submits and you earn 1 $ per email submit.
    If 1% of the list will complete the offer, you earn 1000$.

    Could it work?

    I have found that by just speculating on a method and if it works or not you never truly test it.

    Why don't you put a bit of effort into taking action instead of counting on the opinions of others to make your decisions on.

    I mean its worth a try don't you think? Just put your own creativity into it and see what you can do. The more you try the better you get.

    Theoretically? Sure. Realistically? No?

    Why? Because I've done it ;) But not with a list of public gmails.

    Don't get me wrong...I made some damn good money mass mailing for a couple years and it was a lot of fun but over the long haul, it was not consistent income. Lot of peaks and valleys.

    I [promoted everything from CPA offers to my own digital stuff. And yeah, it converts, but think about it...do you know hard it is to get 1MM emails sent AND delivered to inbox....very hard.

    Some things to consider:

    You will need to become very proficient with how emailing works, whitelisting and hitting the inbox. This is no small task.

    To do it properly requires a great deal of maintenance of the system (IPs, domains, emails, links, etc.)

    Not to mention any legal problems.

    If you want to do it as a "smash and grab" job, yeah you can make some money but there is a big learning curve.

    In most countries promoting anything to an un opt-in list is illegal. And like someone else mentioned, it isn't as easy as it sounds.

    1% is a pretty high expectation from a non-targeted list. I doubt you would get a 1% open rate because most would end up in the Spam folder.
