Yes I did build my own list, and here is how. I own a promotional merchandise and gifts company but it is actually a partnership. So part of our business plan is to make phone calls to other business (our company is based more on B2B) and we would take it from there. If the potential client says that they are interested in receiving our ads in the mail, we understand then that we have the right to send them the email, because they have given us verbal approval on receiving advertisements from us. Another thing that we did was target family and friends (facebook is great for this now a days, b/c u can just ask anyone to be your friend). Then we would depend on their referrals and so forth. I really hope that this is helping you, if you have any other questions just go ahead and email me.
Thank you for the tips and helpful info. I appreciate it!
My advise: whatever you do online marketing wise just be very careful, because I know from personal experience that it can cost more harm than good if you are not being careful.
I agree. I think the best way for us to go is to build our own opt in list for our email marketing campaigns. Did you build your own list? If so, about how long did it take you?

Has anyone heard of targetaudienceonline.com? Their website says that they offer opt in email marketing and they`re offering 1 million email addresses for $150.00. It seems to good to be true.
