Q11 : When I buy a list from you, do I own the list or am I renting it?


A11 : You own the lists we sell to you and are free to market to them as many times as you would like.


Q12 : Out of the lists how many addresses will be undeliverable?


A12 :  That's hard to say. We use all of our resources to ensure all of our addresses are deliverable before we release them. Yet, out of millions of people you can be sure that there will be some who will have either changed addresses or changed email and ISP's from the time we verify the address to the time you receive the package. Even though we feel confident in saying that our delivery ratio is higher then any other list on the market, it is impossible to expect 100% deliverability from any list. Our lists are only months old. We keep getting newer lists to keep them fresh at all times.



What is Bulk E-mail?

Bulk e-mail is the legal and ethical alternative to mass mailing random e-mail addresses. The concept is sending as many people your message as possible whilst observing proper online business ethics and your ISP agreement.


1.)  Make sure it is legal to own, operate and use bulk email programs in the country or state in which you reside.

2. )  Never include any information or material or content associated with anything illegal. Email is NOT anonymous and you will get caught sooner or later.

3.)  Do not send email to people through your ISP (Internet Service Provider) connection if your ISP explicitly forbids bulk email. Contact your ISP to verify if it is allowed if you are unsure. If you violate an ISP service agreement you risk losing your account and/or may be subject to penalties according to their rules. If your ISP forbids bulk mailing you have two options: A) Select a bulk friendly ISP. B) Spread the amount of mailings out over time and use the email program you are already using to send out mail. Professional email programs send mail at speeds that are too fast for many ISP's to handle. This is how you can violate their terms.

4.)  Always include an option for email recipients to remove themselves from your list.

5.)  Permanently remove all those that request to be removed from your list.

6.)  Do not email letters that contain large files, video files or any extraneous data. The ideal size for an email message should be under 10k in size. This is a basic courtesy only.

7.)  Never send more than 1 message to the same email box within a short time period. If someone doesn't respond...assume they never will and move on.

8.)  Never forge or purposely include incorrect and inaccurate header informational fields in your email. This technique may be illegal in your state or country and violates all ISP service agreements.

9.)  Always supply a valid return email address.

10.)  Use an alternate or secondary email account as your return address. This will keep your business and personal accounts separate. This is not required but simply recommended.
