Yes, it's an ongoing process. Having an email list is like having a puppy, you have to train it, feed it and nuture it.

An opt-in email list is by definition something you've built via your website and other channels. No one ever opts in to have their name sold over and over again. Regardless of what list brokers may suggest, using a purchased list can get you in a lot of trouble due to spam complaints.

Now, it's a different deal if the list broker offers to send your offer to their list, but if they try to sell you names and email addresses...run.

A good ESP will be able to help you establish and build it correctly.

Here's a webinar we did a while back on list building tips.

usually you need to have an attractive headline for your recipient, and give relative contents your targeted customers. it is also take the rules of every email provider into consideration.

There's nowhere that the use of spam words can come back to haunt you more quickly than in the subject line of your email. Email subject line content is given huge priority by most email service provider spam filters. While it's a fine line, be careful of words like "free" and "cash." You want to use words in the email subject line that will encourage users to open your email, but doing that at the expense of getting into the inbox isn't worth it.
As always, be sure to test your email to a list of seed addresses before you send it to your main list. If you end up going into the junk or spam folder, one of the first "fixes" that you should try is removing any questionable spam words from your email subject line and making it shorter.

maybe you should have a targeted email list. if you send emails to who do not need your service or products, i think it is a waste of time and energy.

The issue of of spammy words in subject and body of text is way over-stressed. It's almost reached mythic proportions. Sender reputation is what you should be concerned about and that has little to do with what words you may or may not use in your email.

Put any prospective ESP to the test and ask them some hard questions on ths subject.
