Business E-mail Lists
Q: Where do I get a list of business owner e-mail addresses?
A: There are many firms that offer e-mail addresses. The specific data company you choose will depend on your specific targeting requirements (i.e.: type and size of business). The tool that we use to research mailing lists is NextMark. They have a searchable database that contains over 50,000 mailing lists–always with an indicator of whether or not e-mail addresses are available.
Another idea is to go to InfoUSA, one of the large compilers of business data. They offer e-mail addresses for a portion of their 16 million universe.
One thing to know–rarely will the list owner release their e-mail addresses to you. The way the process works is that you’ll supply your e-mail HTML (the e-mail creative) and the list owner will blast your e-mail to their list. You’ll be supplied with reports that show you where people clicked, etc.
