It’s not strange to wonder if there’s a way around the complex process of building a reliable, responsive email list for marketing purposes. Why not just buy a list of emails and start firing off emails until you bring in a few leads?
The main reason your company would want to avoid simply buying an email list is because there’s no guarantee that these lists will grow. Only a fraction of the random individuals who receive the email will respond, and an even smaller percentage of these responders will be legitimate leads. Once your company runs out of funds, this approach to email marketing evaporates as well.
Growing a list of individuals who are interested in your industry and curious about your service is a better way to go. This organic approach focuses on building a community of interested consumers and connecting them to your company. This pool of potential customers will remain even after your marketing budget dries up, ensuring that these efforts reward your company with long-term value.
