    I've heard of some email marketing softwares using these.
    You sign up for a newsletter, but the same form enables you to sign up for another one as well with a single click (checkbox).

    But I don't think it's a popular solution as I have never encountered such a form online.

      My understanding is that the legal/regulatory climate has changed considerably.

      People used to be able to get away with having the "inform me of offers from partners/associates" checked as a default, with the result that there were always large numbers of such "leads" available (they were pretty dreadful quality, even then, as one might imagine, and usually more or less untargeted). My understanding is that for a variety of legal and/or regulatory reasons, this "can't" be done any more, or at least not in the same way. Thankfully. (I'm not a lawyer, needless to say. Also thankfully).

    Some websites are sneaky and automatically check the "receive newsletter option" on a signup/login form - so, unless you specifically uncheck that option and opt-out, you will automatically receive news, offers, etc.

    Walmart.com used to be like this - each time you signed in, the "Email me monthly updates and special values available only at Walmart" box was automatically checked, but I see they have now changed it.

      That's something different.

      "Co-registration" leads are people who've consented to hearing from other businesses, not from the company on whose site they've input their email address.

    I believe there are some "FTC guides Revised" you can google that to get the down low, but I suspect that this practice as another poster suggested is about to become very UN Popular, I still see it being used, but not as much as before.

    listcrew.com and listbuilderpro.com are 2 that i know of apart from getresponse. I have them on the back burner to test out some time.
    I would also be interested if anyone has experience of them or other co-reg services.

      I paid for ListBuilderPro for two months. The 5,000 guaranteed subscribers for around $220. So after spending around $440 and giving it 60 days, I received a grand total of 1 subscriber. That's right. ONE.

      As you might guess, I was very unimpressed. I contacted the support desk and got unintelligible responses. It was a complete waste of my time and money.

    Wow Jeff

    That's shocking. I am always suspect of these kind of deals but would never have it down as being THAT much of a scam.

    ONE subscriber instead of 10,000! Incredible. Was that in the IM niche? Did you get your money back?

    @ Jeff Burritt

    I second the Wow, that is incredible, so you mean that after an entire page of testimonials, and endorsements, leading you to believe you would receive a certain level of service, you did not actually receive the service for which you paid?

    Wow, just incredible, I feel your pain, and thank you for sharing your experiences, here, it is not easy to do that, but so often it happens, over and over again, because people do not share that information and someone comes along and reads all the super Guru Endorsements, and thinks that they can build up a list in a couple of months, you probably have saved a lot of people a lot of "lost" money.

    Thanks for taking time to share that,
