I'm sending out cold emails, but I'm sending them out one at a time. (There's a reason for that.)

Should I use my real email address for this or should Use a gmail? I'm worried about spam repercussions, but can it be considered spam if I only send out one and they only get one?:confused:

    I don't think you should worry about spam repercussions unless you are mass emailing thousands of people at once with the same exact message.

    Or a lot recipients flag your message as spam which I highly doubt will happen.

    The truth of the matter is ... it does not matter if you send one at a time.
    or only one email. Or 50,000 at a time.

    it only takes one recipient to get pissed off. and complian to your upstream/ email provider / ISP / ....

    always protect your self. always. no excuses.

    to do anything less is just begging for trouble.

    Why are you looking to send cold emails as opposed to lead generation?

    Spam is sending out an email to someone who didn't ask for it or has not done business with you. It is a total waste of time.

    Instead, build your own list where people opt in. You will get much better results and not have to worry about spam.

    If they are sales emails then you really should not just send them from your gmail.

    People do it, but you'll get caught and honestly its a waste of time. If you're trying to build a profitable and stable business then I'd stick with professional email services.

    If it is a personal email, then you are fine. If you are using the same copy and paste email you will still probably be fine but you should try to make it as personal as possible.

    Are you opposed to free and paid advertising to generate laeds? A quick PPC campaign can get you quick leads and sales... and isn't that what you want in the first place? Do this, and hit these people up with your backend product immediately.

    Cold emails are same as cold calls but it is through email communication.

    • I'd agree that you really don't have much to worry about in terms of spam repercussions unless you really are mass emailing thousands of people at once with the same exact message.

      That's the only way to have a lot of recipients flag your message as spam, which can create problems for you, obviously. But, one at a time is a bit overly cautious. Go forth, exercise caution, but don't let it immobilize you!

      Good luck!

    It is more reliable that you use your own email. That way the chances of being spammed is slim. Make sure that you have a compelling subject so that it will not be tagged as spam. Agree with the guys, sending one or a couple of thousand doesn't matter. Just don't send them emails everyday.

    If you want to maximize your email campaign, pair it up with telemarketing. Have someone follow up if they have seen and read your message.

    Hope this helps and Good luck.

    What's the objective of the email? I'm about to start canvassing for leads and my strategy is to call local businesses with a very soft sale initially. The objective is to 'sell' them my free ebook which requires a double opt-in to access.

    This way I've already made one point of contact with a prospect and I get to increase subscription to my hyper targeted list. You can do it all for about $10 using a Skype-in number and a premium subscription.

    Yes there's no initial sale but you do start to build a genuine relationship and a relevant list.

    You would probably see a higher return (and less chance of getting flagged) if you did calling first. You could set appointments, or even do a straight interest campaign to get email addresses. Something simple where you or your caller just asks if you can send an email. People are so busy that they will usually say yes. Then they are looking for it, expecting it and you have a great shot of them reading it.
