I should preface this by saying that we are a startup on a tight budget! Cost matters.
We will be targeting smaller businesses with revenue between $100,000 and $1,000,000 who have been in business 2 to 10 years.
1. What email software do you recommend? We are looking to send out about 30 or so automated emails per day to businesses on our list. We'll also of course need it to perform automated follow up emails.
2. How do we go about building a list large enough to make an impact? I am thinking purchasing a list is best here because there's no way that I know to easily determine if they meet our criteria just by hunting. But I really have no idea!
3. What CRM should we be using? We're on a budget so something like HubSpot looks appealing. Can anyone vouch for this or any other CRM?
