I have been learning affiliate marketing for about 4 weeks now. Warriors Forum kept getting mentioned, so I'm happy to finally be here.
So here's my dilemma:
I am a newly licensed insurance agent who has joined a unique program to build an agency. The program can benefit non-licensed reps, but the IDEAL target are licensed agents. My team leader recently gave me a huge database of licensed agents in the states we are approved to work in. Although the list appears to be about 3 years old, most insurance licenses are good for about 4 years prior to renewal.
After skimming through the sheets, I'm estimating about 50k+ personal email addresses, 70k+ business email addresses, and 50k+ usable phone numbers. I don't mind cold calling, but I DO really want to bulk email this list for an email marketing campaign.
The company already has a funnel system so I just need to get traffic there and opted in.
Would you blast this list? If so, could I use a Free Forever Plan like Mail Chimp or SendinBlue? Or even test the waters with a free trial Aweber or GetResponse account?
Thanks in advance guys!
