I have a website which is almost ready for population.
The site will need to have people on it before I am able to switch on the payment methods.
I have 9400 email addresses of people who use another one of my sites.
The idea is to find a way to send each one of them an email explaining about the site and asking them to create a free profile, this will be a gift to them if they want to use the service free, or as? a helping hand as they are aware of us already.
Normally I would consider using PHP list and sending out a mailer, BUT I have found that having more of a human approach often gets better results, as the person can see that the email is coming from someone genuine and they can actually enter into a conversation with you.
I have a user name, and email address which you can use and an online interface for you to use, or you could use pop3 settings to use outlook for speed.
I need the following
1/ You opinion on this idea
2/ Your choice of method on how to make sure they all get an email and respond to it
3/ Your price to be able to send these emails
4/ Any other ideas you may have
You will have impeccable English spelling and you will be able to engage the people if they want to reply to you.
I will give you a number of template worded emails and you could make sure that people from the same building i.e. extention are not all emailed on the same day. This can be done by checking the csv file and the entries.
Ideally this will start in the next week or so, and I would prefer to work to a fixed fee for the job.
Look forward to your questions or quotations
