Before you start email marketing, you need a huge email list for that. Email Marketing is all about growing your email list. Plus email addresses are extremely valuable. The more addresses you get, and the better their quality they are, the more successful you will be as an online marketer. I know it sounds crazy to collect 100,000 emails in 1 day. But it’s possible. Here are two fastest ways for startups to grow your email list.
1. Google Search String
These are the strings that some one shares on Black Hat World.
Put the search string: inurl: edu intext:gmail.com filetype:txt 2016
in Google and it will bring you tons of email addresses that you can send offers to. The thing is that those emails won’t be very accurate for lead generation.
Here are some more search strings for you.
2. Collect Email with Third-Party Scrapers
There are many email scrapers that can help you harvest email addresses from web page. Here I’m going to show you how to collect emails with a email scraper. (Since most websites keep emails private and secure, I’m going to take telephone numbers instead. Just to show you how the scraper works. )
Step 1: Design scraping workflow.
Step 2: Scrape data you want.
Step 3: Get the result.
Pretty easy, right? Now you've know how to build your email database with these two fastest and free way. Try them now!
