I created a web crawler and got a list of emails from people relevant to my business. I want them to opt-in into my service but I don't want to spam their inbox. Do you have idea/suggestions of what I can do and how? ty!

A great idea is 1% of the work. Execution is the other 99%. In this course, we’ll teach you how to conduct market analysis, create an MVP and pivot (if needed), launch your business, survey customers, iterate your product/service based on feedback, and gain traction quickly.

My biggest suggestion is to put them in with an email service provider that is DIFFERENT than the provider you want to utilize going forward as you will get a ton of spam complaints and you don't want that to harm your ability to email people in the future who want to hear from you.


Example: Import that list into Constant Contact and email them with a link to get something free (checklist, whitepaper, video) but before they get that freebie, make them optin. That optin will then dump them into a list in Aweber, where you can then continue to market to them appropriately.


As for the content of the email. I would start with something innocuous, like asking their advice on something. People LOVE to give advice (that is why this site works so well. LOL) and it doesn't get their defenses up like you are trying to pitch them something and they don't even know who you are. So you could like them to a quick survey which asks for their email (which will then dump into Aweber (to be consistent with the example above).


An example of that would be something like: Hi, I'm emailing because I saw you are interested in computer repair education. I am trying to figure out how to communicate more effectively. I would really appreciate your advice on how you like to see information presented and what most people do wrong. Would you mind providing your feedback to me here? {link to your short survey}

Hi Nicolas,


I am sure there are probably some creative alternatives but don't quickly discount emails (especially in a B2C space as appose to B2B). A delightful email that's concise, beautifully designed, and has an attention-grabbing title that speaks to their pain point still does wonders :)

Just my 2 cents

Using FullContact API you can find their social media profile. This can help you to better understand / profile your market and follow up with them via social media.

With the different platforms provided from Google you can show adds only for a selected email list. The list has to be more than 1,000 emails. For those email you can show them adds in adwords adds, youtube pre roll , display adds, mobile, etc.

Finding these businesses on the facebook always help and contact them there could be less intrusive. Also finviting the relevant businesses to an interesting meetup is very nice way of contacting them. We found out that writing relevant articles that these people would search and find you is the best way of keeping us and our business relevant.

You can ask them to have coffee or have lunch with you and discuss your business with them. It's certainly better than getting emails from a stranger. Do your due diligence on them and email them to ask to have coffee or lunch. Good luck!!
