Buying e mail addresses - Bulk e mail marketing

Recommended Posts

What are the members opinions of Bulk e mail marketing.
This firm charges £49 for one e mail to 2.7million UK e mail addresses.
It may work out cost neutral with increased adsense revenue.

Is it a bit of a scam? Obviously I wont know until after the  e mail have been sent if indeed they all are?

 

The firm is  www.email-list-uk.co.uk

Jasper,

 

I would not recommend buying email lists. The people that are on the list may have opted-in somewhere, but they did not opt-in to your email campaign. You may have some success with using these email lists, but if you are using your brand, you are associating it with spamming.

I agree with Fabio.  You could be opening yourself up to being blacklisted for spam.
 
From their About page:

All data is collated through marketing research and we ensure opt in to 3rd party communications.


What assurances do they provide that they really did get permission for 3rd party communications?

 

Who were you thinking of targeting with this?  Businesses or consumers?

hmm. Thanks guys.  I had thought this too.  I don't want to be associated with spamming but as a one time one off, it might be/have been worth it.

What I have is a petition to parliament

https://petition.parliament.uk/petitions/167660

 

Only UK residents can sign it.

But it needs a boost. just 335 signed in a month!
 

My thinking is/was a one off bulk e mail to 2.7m UK consumers would mean a hit rate of just 1% I would get enough for the government debate.  This issue is quite important to me, I have been campaigning for seven years.

 

I have heard back from the firm and they tell me the £49.99 is for "single use of the data only"
They would charge me £2,500 fro them to send one e mail to the 2.7m e mail addresses.
With bulk e mailer software available, I think this is a scam,  and anyway way above what I can afford or justify.

I can't see how I could have been more clear!

Nothing will change anytime soon without 100,000 signing by end March 2017.

Its as if people like being badly treated and ignored by indifferent plc housebuilders.
