Is using an email list service legit?

You also run the risk of getting your domain added to spam blocking software and organizations like Spamhaus.  If that happens you might as well start your business/domain over from scratch.  You`re better off having your own opt-in list and building it from there.  Phplist is a great, free software that you can integrate into your current site to start the opt-in process.sddreamweavers1/18/2008 5:31 PM

    You`re much better off running solo or sponsorship ads in reputable ezines. Their lists are 100% opt-in - some even double opt-in and they don`t SPAM people. http://DEMC.com is a good one.

    It depends on who you buy/rent the list from. I had no problems with breaking CanSpam rules with the last company I used for an email campaign.
    I`ve found that with an email campaign, it has to be a multi-touch effort.
    Care to PM me a link where I can get 250,000 addresses for $100?....

     Dale, What about buying email lists?I am thinking of buying an email list for Dubai businesses as I get asked to speak there often at conferences and so considered promoting some workshops there.What are your thoughts?http://www.reachgulfbusiness.com/ Rgds,RicRicWillmot1/19/2008 7:15 AM

    Ric, I would personally NEVER buy an e-mail list. It`s just too risky. It`s just not a good idea to send out bulk e-mails to people who have not requested your information. That`s a good way to get blacklisted, and shutdown as a SPAMMER - and believe me, that`s a problem you don`t want. You`re better off spending your money on advertising in a reputable medium that is read by your target audience.

    There is no such creature. No genuine email showcasing administrations permit obtained records. Not saying you can't transfer an acquired rundown to any semblance of Aweber, Constant Contact, GetResponse or MailChimp (or any others), however you won't get far. Most will test the legitimacy of the supporters and not permit it. Also, in the event that you do pass that obstacle, you're more than prone to get punished (or banned) on the off chance that you can email that rundown, on the grounds that more then likely, the rundown will be loaded with an excessive number of ricochets and grumblings.
