In my opinion, buying email list is not an intelligent way to grow your email marketing service. This will degrade your email deliverability for short or long period of time and the reason behind this is:

1. The validity of emails is unknown to you.
2. Poor Response Rate.
3. Low Delivery Rate.
4. Risk of Spamming

So, instead of buying an email list, You can build your own opt-in list that is advantageous for your business.

I’ve got 2 different solutions here…@Satyabala said that buying an email list in not a good practice as it can affect your deliverability. On the other hand, @Durgesh is saying that it may be beneficial for you. I’m totally confused.

@Durgesh, am running a business of website templates and I want to do email marketing of my themes but don’t have targeted leads. That’s why I’m thinking to buy it. Please tell my should I do it or not. or is there any better way to generate targeted leads for my business.

In my opinion, it is a short term method that will damage your reputation in the long term.

Advantage of buying a list:

  • Leads right now!
  • New sales opportunities
  • Minimal effort to collect these


  • legally dodgy
  • Increased rate that you will be blacklisted as spam since this is an unsolicited email
  • most people will just unsubscribe (and potentially report as spam), not engage.
  • You have no idea of the quality of the list.

I would recommend you don’t buy a list. Build it up through other means. Network through LinkedIn, meet people in real life. Anyone telling you to likely wants to sell you one more than they actually believe in the idea.

  • You should not buy a list(the reasons have been stated before). To collect your subscribers, you need to insert an opt-in form so they could register and stay updated. Here’s how you create a form at
  • Head to the “Forms” section, create a design, add your text:

  • Then, just embed the form into your website!

  • Thirdly, to keep your current subscribers, you need to send newsletters regularly, but not too often. It all depends on what your subscribers are looking for: If they want daily reports, on, let’s say, the Forex markets, send it daily. But if they are looking for a weekly weather report, send it weekly. In other words, be consistent and predictable.
