Or better yet how to send millions of emails and avoid getting blacklisted
A simple question with not so simple solution. Sending millions of emails isn't impossible but requires some thinking and work done first.
Even if you did buy your list you should always make sure it is as clean as possible and try to segment it as much as possible. This is hard to do if your bought contact list came only with email addresses. But you could still get info from your contacts like country and what device are they using. Little things.like this can help you with list segmentation and you can better target your audience.
For many setting up an email server is something they would never do on their own. I too used to ask others for help when I started with bulk email sending. But soon I realised that it would be a lot better if I do this on my own. Here is why:
This way I am independent and don't have to pay someone to set up my server
I don't have to worry about my lists getting stolen
And this is the most important. If you do something for your own personal use you will take care of every single detail that could affect your deliverability.
Buttons are always a bitch when it comes to email design and most e-mail marketers (hmm..) get it wrong. Because I am such a nice guy, er, ninja I decided to do some digging and come up with a solution for perfect buttons for emails. Now you can get your buttons displayed across all platforms like a ninja. Just look how lovely they are.
Uh oh, you bought/scraped a huge list and was like “whooo, I am going to be rich in two days”. You started sending and soon you realised your delivery rates aren't that good and a lot of your emails bounce. So you asked your friend an expert for an advice and he stopped answering your calls since he has no idea what to do. Follow this tips to reduce email bounce rate and to get your bulk email system work instead of you.
Do it like a pro
It's not easy being a spammer. I know most of my customers are and I have to deal with their problems all the time. But since I also started like a spammer I had a good background knowledge and my so called perfect bulk email system (my customers gave it this name) is built from step 1 to achieve best possible results no matter where you got your lists.
Your IP or domain got blacklisted and now you are probably wondering how I get off it?
Removing an IP or domain from a blacklist isn’t that hard. It will, however, take a lot of your time and in some well all cases it's a lot better to prevent blacklistings before they happen. This can be done with selecting the right software for your SMTPs (it's called Mail transfer agent or MTA) and email marketing application. If you are interested in a system setup that is capable of sending unlimited emails and do everything it can to prevent blacklistings from happen look at the bottom of this post. Now let's get back to the subject how to remove IP or domain from a blacklist.
I will answer your question and show you how to send mass emails without spamming. Monthly costs can be as low as a few bucks but I recommend a system for around $35 per month.
So you got a huge contact list that I am sure you got from your double-opt-in form on your website 😉 and now you got an idea.
What if I send mass emails to all these contacts? Hell even if only 1% converts it will make you rich!
But then soon you realised that it's not that easy. ESPs like MailChimp and AWeber closed your accounts minutes after you imported your contact lists. Your VPS got blacklisted and your delivery rates dropped to the point where sending had no point anymore.
So you are searching for VPS for bulk email sending but can't find the right one
Or they closed your account because of spam since let's be honest you are a spammer. Yah I know there is nothing worse than waking up and realising your VPS for bulk email was shut down. I feel you, it happened to me too.
Want complete freedom when you send mass email? The best way is to host everything on your own server.
Don't worry, it's not as hard as it sounds especially since I have a step-by-step guide you can follow. If you’ll follow my guide your system will be able to send mass email. It will also “do” everything to avoid blacklistings and getting a reputation of a spammer.
