Email Lists: geting it right

Spam is said to cost the global economy arround $8 billion per year. Professional email marketing must avoid spam.

There are several ways of building your company's email list or database and the most obvious is to start with your pressent client list. It is often far easier to sell more to your pressent clients than it is to add more clients.

Once you have gotten that sorted the next step is to get creative.

Getting email lists from professional organisations

This can be a little trickey but members of professional organisationsor clubs will often access to the full membership list of that organisation. Along with all the added benefiots associated with this group you now also have a large new list to work from.

Use the internet to assist you in finding these associations, using Google I was able to track down 242 000 webpages where the term "travel association" was used. Using inverted comas as I have makes sure that the search engine returns only results where the words accure nexto one another.
