Best Way To Get An Email out to 2k People

12 replies
Hey everyone,

I was wondering if you guys knew any place that would allow me to send a mass email to 2,000 people to advertise my social media website.

If so, what would you recommend? Mailchimp is something I tried but they said I couldn't due to their policy.

Thanks.

    This will do it all for free. You need a hosting account however.

      Could I use free hosting for this? Or does it have to be in direct relation to my website hosting.

        If the hosting allows you to use their server for mails, yes.

    Oh, yeah. This is super simple. What you need to do is make sure your eMail will fit on a single 8.5"x11" sheet of paper. You don't want the type too small. Bigger is better. You want people to be able to see it and read it quickly, so don't be too verbose.

    Next, find some heavy paper so your message will have some mass to it. Get the heaviest paper you can print on your printer. If your printer is cheap, you might have to print it on ordinary paper and then glue that to card stock or poster board or something. Doesn't matter. Just make sure the final piece is nice and sturdy. If you can laminate it, that would be even better.

    Then, you just need to find a place with a lot of foot traffic, like a bulletin board at a grocery store or a telephone poll near a busy intersection--the latter is where a laminated piece works best so it doesn't get ruined if it rains. You just staple or pin the message to the board or poll (where legal) and you're all set!

    With any luck, you might get your message out to more than 2k people! It just depends on how busy the area is. Of course, you could put up more than one. Just be sure to only put them in places where you're allowed to do so, otherwise it could be bad publicity for you and you don't want to give your site a negative reputation from the get-go.

    Good luck!

    There are some solo ad services that would send an email to even more people than that. Just search solo ad email blast or something related to that.

    Do you have permission to send them e-mails?

    If so, you can try turbo-smtp, which provides a free plan and can send 200 e-mails per day. It may check if you have permission to send bulk e-mails to them.
