Every day, some of our clients ask us where their can buy an email addresses database. WE DON'T SELL EMAIL LISTS FOR E-MARKETING. It’s not necessary to call us. Sending unsolicited e-mails is illegal in several countries.
The best thing to do is build your own mailing list. A generic email address database can be very large, but on the other hand you must consider how many people in that list are really interested in your products or services. Probably only a few.
When you build your own mailing list, people decides to subscribe to your newsletter because they are interested in what you’re selling. So, it’s more fruitful to send few e-mails to interested people rather than sending a large amount of emails to generic lists. If you still want to buy e-mail addresses, make sure the seller is authorized by their customers in order to sell their data to third party services. Good luck!
Unsolicited email lists should be small for two reasons:
CAN-SPAM stands for "Controlling the Assault of Non-Solicited Pornography and Marketing Act. " CAN-SPAM has a long and ominous sounding name that, unfortunately, does not match the lack of truly stiff penalties for failing to comply. Still, failure to follow the law can result in you being fined, sued, or blacklisted.
CAN-SPAM was enacted in 2004 to address the Internet's need for controls and regulations regarding commercial advertising. CAN-SPAM created penalties for businesses that do not comply with federal email regulations. It also established consumer rights in regard to e-mailers who "spam" to them.
The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) enforces violations of the CAN-SPAM Act. The Department of Justice (DOJ) is also granted the authority to enforce criminal sanctions.
Additionally, the FTC states that:
Other federal and state agencies can enforce the law against organizations under their jurisdiction, and companies that provide Internet access may sue violators, as well.
The following restrictions applies to all unsolicited emails from businesses, and in many cases, also applies to emails in response to voluntary requests for information or email subscriptions:
Any business that sends unsolicited email that a recipient did not voluntarily subscribe to, must have “opt out” instructions contained in the email. Even when a recipient has voluntarily subscribed to any form of email distribution, opt-out information must still be included in every email.
The law requires you to honour all opt-out requests within ten (10) business days. After ten days have passed since the recipient requested no further contact, it is illegal to email them again. You cannot use different email addresses from your company to continue mailing them, unless they give you specific permission to do so. After an opt-out has been requested, the only further communication you can legally send to the recipient is verification that they will, or have been, removed from your emailing list.
