How to mass market a product/service?

How can I mass market a product to consumers? what is the best way and most affordable way? I know of kijiji ads, facebook ads… what else?

Also, what is the best way to capture leads (emails, names, etc)?

Can I buy twitter postings (a company with a big following sells posts on their account to their large following)?

Hi Matty,

The methods that you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 have mentioned so far are essentially a waste of time and money. Trust me I have tried them several times. You do not want to rent or buy other peoples’ lists because they will not be targeted towards you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r product/service and the people receiving the messages will not be responsive. Think about what you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 would do if you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 received a random email about some product or service that you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 have never expressed an interest in. Would you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 even look at it?

What I suggest is that you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 set up the following:
Facebook page
Twitter Account
Google+ Account
Pinterest account
Youtube account (very powerful for SEO)

Link all of these things together and put up a bunch of content (you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 can get content written and videos made cheaply on

Drive traffic towards the blog or a squeeze page where you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 will have an opt-in form. You always want to ask permission before sending emails. This is not just for ethical reasons, it also increases the responsiveness of the list because as far as they are concerned they have chosen to be marketed to and are actually expecting to be contacted by you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势.

Here is a post by Seth Godin (marketing genius) about permission marketing:

Here is some information about using this method for email marketing campaigns

I hope this helps!

Helen asks…

How much could I sell my databases for?

I research small businesses and compile databases on company info that I find. How can I find out how much people normally expect to pay for this type of information? I am aiming to supply telemarketers and web designers/developers and improvers/email marketing companies/Insurance companies.
Pretty new to this type of work. So any help with how much I could charge would be most useful, also how to sell them and where.
I was thinking I could perhaps sell them as hard copies on Ebay one fee for multiple rights (to more than one buyer) or sole rights to one buyer, under Ebays BUY NOW policy.

Compiling my databases by postal areas. eg. Cambridge, Birmingham.

Richard answers:

I do not want to put you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 off its a good idea.
You have to be careful if they data contains personel information even such as a telephone number that is a direct line it may breech the 1998 (revised 2001) Data protection act if they have not given consent.

In this country general company information is ok although not in Italy.

It would depend on who you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 are selling it to, how many are on it,
how up to date it is, and how much detail is provided.

It could be anything from lb400 – lb2,000 or more. I think it is Data Monitor or Brad on line some the larger companies charge by use so they sell you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 a disc or a computor download and you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 are allowed to use the list a given amount of times and then you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 have to re negotiate terms for additional use.

If I were you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 I would look those two companies up on the internet and also go to
