How to Properly Purchase an Email List:



I could completely start and end this blog with the above “Don’t” as it is simply is the biggest no-no you can do in email marketing.  The sellers of purchased list are not concerned about getting permission from the recipients or even verifying if they are valid email address (even if they say they do verify, they don’t) and this leads to spam compliants, invalid email addresses, and even worse – spam traps.

All of the above have an absolute negative effect on your delivery as it drives down your sending reputation.  Spam traps, can get you blacklisted immediately.

Purchasing a list is equivalent to playing Russian roulette with a loaded gun – YOU ARE GUARANTEED TO LOOSE.

So, when it comes to purchasing a list the negatives far outweigh the potential rewards……so DON’T.
