Optin Email Lists Directory

This directory of providers of opt-in e-mail lists is provided as a public service for internet marketers. I created this alphabetical list because I couldn't find a central resource anywhere online listing all the providers of such lists.

Please send me an email (through our contact form here) if you know of another resource for opt-in email lists, or if some of the information here is incorrect or needs to be updated on a particular company. I try to keep this page updated regularly. The comments are mine (Jere Matlock) and are based on my experiences with the list providers in trying to locate for one of my clients an email list of Certified Public Accountants (CPAs) who own their own businesses.


CPA: (Used in this document to mean Certified Public Accountant: I was looking for a list of Certified Public Accountants or CPAs)

CPA: Note: There's another definition of CPA, which means "Cost Per Acquisition" -- which is a method of paying for emails sent out based on results, the "Cost Per Acquisition" of a client or sale or signup to your newsletter for you. How that works: A company agrees to send out x number of emails for you, and you then pay them based on a rate of $Y per customer you get or sale you make. There are very few email list brokers that will allow you to pay on a CPA basis. Most of them want you to buy their lists on a "CPM" basis.

CPM: means Cost Per M (where M = one thousand) emails, and that's what list brokers will usually try to sell you. For example, sending out 100,000 emails at a CPM of $40/M would cost you $4,000. On a CPM basis they get paid for sending out emails on your behalf, whether or not you make any sales from those emails.

CPC: means Cost Per Clickthrough. When the email goes out, it will have a link for people to click -- some webpage for them to visit to get more info or to sign up or whatever. For a mailing sent out on a CPC basis, you pay for every clickthrough to that target URL, whether they buy anything or not.

SPAM: is basically any email that is sent out to anyone who hasn't agreed to receive email from that source. Those buying, selling, renting and using opt-in email lists walk a fine line between valid and welcome promotion and illegal and unwanted "spam". For example, when you sign up for a domain name at Network Solutions, you hastily click through a "terms and conditions" page that gives them the right to market to your email address indefinitely, and to sell that email address to others. You've "opted-in" to the lists of spammers--whoever can pay for the list from Network Solutions. In my humble opinion, any emails that you receive thereafter based on that "agreement" are most likely going to be spam.

firetrust anti-spam

Anti-spam: We at Words in a Row are of the anti-spam persuasion, which is one reason we provide this list of vendors of opt-in email lists. Contradictory as that may seem (we've been blasted by anti-spammers for participating at all in this industry) our reasoning is this: We want marketers to be able to locate lists that ARE opt-in, so that they aren't tempted by and don't ever buy email addresses harvested from websites by robots or in some other way gathered without permission.

To help block spam from reaching your own inbox, there are several tools you can use:

At the server level, the Spam Assassin program, set up and functioning on my server, has made the most difference for me personally with regard to spam. I have it set with a high threshhold, so that something REALLY has to be spam before Spam Assasin catches it. Even so, about 98% of the spam directed to me is now being caught and filtered by this program. A few spams still get through, but I have found that if you set the Spam Assassin threshhold too low, it will catch all HTML formatted newsletters and other emails you want to get and filter them out--not good. Overall, though, I have found it to be the anti-spam solution I have been looking for, and many of my web hosting clients have said similar things about how good a job it does at filtering spam. It is also easier to USE than any other anti-spam programs. Spam stopped being an issue for me when I started using Spam Assassin and set up my server so it uses the Recommended Blackhold list to block emails by checking against a list of IP addresses of known spammers.

For your own personal computer, we also highly recommend Cloudmark Anti Spam as one of the easiest and best of the anti-spam solutions available. I have used it to check and block about 20,000 spams every week.

Gmail: We recommend gmail for our clients and use it ourselves. It's a little clunky compared to Outlook Express (which Microsoft never supported well, but which worked reliably in Windows XP). Outlook Express was not brought forward into Windows 7, and many people have discovered that Windows Live Mail is one of the worst email products ever created; one cannot buy support from Microsoft for it, either, and one is dependent upon "third-party" solutions to fix its many glitches and problems.

In my personal opinion, Gmail's spam filtering is the best in the world--exactly what you'd expect from the team at Google. Note: Gmail allows you to go get emails from all your other email accounts and consolidate them in one place, online. And Gmail allows you to SEND email from any one of those accounts; you do not need to use your whatever@gmail.com email address to send email. You can send email easily from any of your many email addresses. Of course there are BIG security issues: what is Google doing with all the emails in all the millions of accounts it is hosting? How much do you want Google to know about you? It's your call.

Opinions & Advice About Opt-in Email Lists

If you can do so, try to find an email company willing to do an email on a CPA ("cost per acquisition") basis. They only get paid when you make sales or get a prospect, so the risk is split; each mailing becomes a kind of partnership. Some companies will drop their CPM rate drastically if you offer some CPA or CPC incentive as part of the deal. They do have some hard costs associated with sending out an emailing for you, so it makes sense that they want to have their costs covered.

What this means to you is that you should ASK. Try to negotiate a CPA or CPC ("cost per click") deal as part of a reduced rate on CPM ("cost per thousand") emailings. Figure out how much commission you can afford to pay for a new customer or what percentage you can pay on each sale, and offer that as a CPA deal.

Personal note: In the days before email existed, I used to sell mailing lists for a small mailing list brokerage company that owned a couple of its own lists, but mainly relied on the services of brokers to fill requests from its customers. So here's a word of warning about mailing lists (including email mailing lists) from one who has been there and done that:

Make very, very sure that you actually get what you order.

Here's some good advice from Francis Santos at the Search Engine People Blog about how to spot and avoid email marketing scammers, of which there are many.

Brokers, especially, tend to think that whatever they have that is SIMILAR to what you want, IS what you want. They have even been known to fudge the way they write up sales contracts to reflect what you want, not what they have. So make sure you find out exactly where the names came from, how old they are, how current they are, how names are taken off the list, and what sort of guarantee they come with. Make sure that exactly what you order is specifically stated on the contract. Hope for the best, but have a plan in case you get the worst possible result, which would be no result at all from the mailing.

I'm not an attorney, but I offer this advice based on many years of experience in and around the area of direct mail and email lists:

Always pay by credit card. That way you have recourse through your credit card company if you feel you have been cheated. If a company will not take a credit card as payment, it is one reason not to do business with them--they are making it harder for you to get a refund if you believe at some point down the line that you deserve one.

If you believe you have a valid complaint against a company that has sent out email or direct mail for you, take the direct approach to resolving any service problem:

Speak to the salesman from whom you bought the service, then his/her manager and then the delivery personnel, then start climbing their organization hierarchy until the problem is resolved. Always take good notes during those telephone calls. Send letters documenting any agreements reached to resolve the problem, and send copies of those letters to the top brass of the organization so they know there is (or was) a problem and can see how it is being handled by their staff. Typically those lower down in an organization will try to hide any service problems from their own top brass, so the executives may not have any idea there is a problem until they receive your certified letter.

If no joy from that approach, then the top brass IS the problem and you should start contacting the Better Business Bureau--BBB Online Dispute Resolution--and other trade organizations. Although you'd think the Direct Marketing Association--DMA--would be helpful, in my experience they probably will not be much help. They are a trade organization organized to support mailing companies, not consumers.

Business dispute resolution is a good way to go if it gets to the point where you feel that you've reached a dead end. Dispute resolution is ALWAYS less expensive than getting the attorneys involved.

If you get ripped off by any of these mailing list companies, don't forget that you have a voice! Use it to warn others: Ripoff Report is a useful place to investigate anyone trying to do business with you, and to report anyone who has ripped you off. Don't believe everything you read at RipoffReport.com because anyone can file a complaint, whether customer or not. No proof is required when making these complaints, so take the info there with a large dose of salt.

As a last resort you can contact the state Attorney General where the offending company is registered to do business, or your own attorney if you feel you have a viable cause of action. In my experience, the odds are that it will cost more than it is worth to pursue legal action. It doesn't hurt to send a cc of all your correspondence about this dispute to the Federal Trade Commission (FTC), either, if your complaint or request for refund is not being handled properly.

Real two-way communication, where both parties actually sit still and listen to each other, is a tremendous solvent. In my experience, real two-way communication will resolve almost any business dispute.

But also remember that some sales offers just don't work and it is not always the fault of the mailing list company. So be prepared to use different parts of the same list to test your offers so you can find one offer that works well for you. To see how this has been done for about 100 years, read the classic book, Scientific Advertising by Claude C. Hopkins. The book is usually available through Amazon, and you can sometimes find it through Powells Used Book Store, or aLibris (both of those are great online bookstores).

Also be aware that most of these companies listed below have a $1000.00 minimum order.

Not to be confused with PostMaster.com. Big. Lots of lists. They have an excellent online process for determining which of their lists you want -- you can sort them demographically and geographically and so on right online, and determine what the exact count is going to be -- without ever having to talk to a human. In other words, their interface is very user-friendly and informative. Minimum order is $1000. I tried getting CPA/business owners -- the closest I could come was Accountants in the CEO/Executive position. They only had 65 such names, which they were perfectly willing to sell to me -- for $1000. I declined their offer.

Web Solutions Inc

Web Solutions Inc asked to be included on this list in November 2009. Their website is down, as of March 2013.

Web Solutions Inc sells a $55.00 CD with 1 billion (that's billion with a "b") optin email addresses on it, categorized by interest in such things as business & investing, entertainment, music, home & garden, news, relationships, shopping, sports, men, women, etc. They also say they are "guaranteed legit emails!" They offer free shipping. It says they are opt-in email addresses, right there on the label of the CD.

(Caveat Emptor. In my experience, if it seems to good to be true, it usually is. And you get what you pay for.)


This company specializes in providing CPA marketing to its clients.


They have some mailing lists of webmasters for rent.


Also known as permission-e.com. Worldata has been around for many years selling regular snail-mail address lists. They have a few opt-in email lists which sell for as little as $.15 a name. Their lists are interest related - PC gamers and the like. Not, apparently, CPAs or Dentists. Here's an example:

"10,000+.....Total File....$225/M [that's $0.225 per name]

The Business 2.0 Opt-In Email List (www.imaginemedia.com), published by Imagine Media, is a valuable business tool as it focuses on emerging trends in business today. Each issue is dedicated to the new business economy, new rules, and new leaders. Business 2.0 features articles on the new economy and how it affects different areas of business, including sales, marketing, career development, finance, and government. Topics include E-commerce, electronic marketing, today's business leaders, competing in the new economy, new business models, news and data for important investment and business decision making, new products, measuring E-business success and more. The Business 2.0 Opt-In Email List subscribers are business leaders and new economy executives. They are intelligent, creative thinkers who are keeping close attention to the future economy. They work in a variety of industries, including E-commerce, consulting, advertising, accounting, finance, market research, public relations and sales. These professionals subscribe to Business 2.0 for insights and perspective on the reshaping of the global economy.

Use This List For:

All Business-to-Business Offers, Home Office Offers, Executive/Personal Self-Improvement Offers, Seminars, Catalogs, Financial/Investment Offers, Travel Offers, Computer Hardware and Software, Online Services, High-Tech Products and More!"

That is a traditional rate card for a snail-mail list, if I ever saw one. Worldata's opt-in email lists were a little too generic for my client's needs but they may be what you are looking for. They have a "transmittal fee" of $75.00 per thousand. (Not sure what that's for but be sure to ask them!) For more information on any of their lists contact them at: (561) 393-8200 or email them at lists@worldata.com.

XL Marketing asked for a listing on this page in November 2012.

YesMail is another InfoGroup company.

You'll see that they do not have much demographic information on their names. They gather names based only on "interest category". When people opt-in to the YesMail system, they give their name, email address and interests. Their phone number (as of 2006) is 646-336-4155. Ask for email list sales.

Another contact there is Sam Shaffer, (sams@yesmail.com) who comes highly recommended for his responsiveness. I've also been informed that Yesmail also now has lots of demographic data on the people who sign up.

Unsolicited Testimonial about putting a listing on this page:

"You are the best!!

FYI, I was first listed on Words in A Row in early last year. I was only listed for about 3 weeks when I received a call from an advertiser looking for a media buyer in the US, it turns out this advertiser became my biggest account, I currently handle an ad budget in excess of $500K per year from this advertiser.

So thank you again."
