Subject: Finding Opt-in lists

Dear Gary and members:

As I have said before, I am new to e-marketing but very enthusiastic
about its potential.  I now have a client who is interested in doing
a targeted mailing to people who are known web shoppers -- in other
words, these are people who have already shown they are comfortable
purchasing products over the I-net, via their Visa, Master Card or
American Express card.

Is there such an Opt-In list?  Or does anyone know of any other list
source for this?  And where exactly would one obtain an opt-in list?

Thanks so much.

Judy,

The following, quoted from the website you reference, leads me
to believe that these people recommend using methods that all
smell like spam to me.  I'd be careful about spending my $24.95
where such tactics are considered acceptable.

Subject: payment systems

Gary,

I have probably missed a previous discussion. Are there any
affordable payment systems (credit cards and direct debit?) for
a web catalogue developer here in the UK? So far we have got
offers with more digits than we have dollars.

Thanks for anyone who can help

Peter

Apparently there are a number of different systems for this in
exsitence. Has this list ever included an objective comparison of the
merits/advantages of each system?

Dan,

We have not made comparisons in this forum.  I think it would be
helpful for everyone if we do so.  How about it, folks?  Want to
let us know about your favorite payment systems software?

Good idea, but first it might be worth spending the time (if
not also the money) to prove the assumption you've made as to
the source of your increased interest.

Many web servers come with a "referrer log" which tracks the
web page from which your viewer clicked to get to your page.
It's worth asking your ISP (or, if you're hosting your own site,
to do it yourself) for these statistics.

Not only will this help you ensure that you know the source that's
feeding you, but you'll also learn which newsgroups/links are
providing you with the highest value and therefore are worth
the bulk of your time.

FWIW, at my last company, we spent a lot of time creating a reciprocal
links network.  We had a fulltime person spending about 20-25% of
her time updating our links pages.  And the bulk of our visitors came
from the search engines - Infoseek, Yahoo, and AltaVista being the
biggest contributors.

Which isn't to say that the newsgroups aren't worth the time.  I believe
that they are.  However, making sure you're highly visible in the search
engines is *more* worth it.

Hope this helps,

gary

Yes, YOU do, but your recipients don't.  You want to create lists
using the nickname feature: list1, list2, etc.  Then compose your
digest and in the TO: header put your own address.  Leave the CC:
header blank.   Then open up Tools > Address Book and click
on the left side to select the list name to send to.  Then move
to the bottom of the address book page and click on BCC:.

This will automatically put your selected list in the BCC area of
your outgoing message.  While you may see it, recipients will
not, as long as it is BCC and not CC.

When you have to send hundreds of mails, standard e-mail packages
like Eudora or Pegasus become not very convenient, because this
isn't what they were designed for. Better way is to use specialized
packages. There are many on the marked. Some of them allow you to
manage entire mailing list right from your PC. Others just allow to
send out a message. I'm author of one of them, which is probably the
simplest (but still powerful). You may take a look on it at
http://www.frognet.net/~xor/aymail.htm
