Should You Buy an Email List For Marketing?

My immediate response was “Of course not!” and then I got to thinking about how many other people might be asking a similar question.

So, let’s look at why we believe you should never “buy email list for marketing”. We definitely believe in email marketing and we believe the best way to be successful is to build your own targeted list so that you have real humans who have actually shown some interest in what your business offers.
Buying an email list may seem like a good idea to give your company a quick start. After all, it’s pretty easy to understand why so many companies are getting in to email marketing. It’s incredibly inexpensive. It’s easy to set up. It’s fairly quick to set up, and the returns can be amazing when it’s done right.
But the key is “when it’s done right”. Part of that includes the process of actually building real lists rather than focusing on and searching for “buy email list for marketing”.
