    send a single email to each friends, it will make some thing good. if u try to send email to all friends at once, it will result in spamming.

    No, I wouldn't call it an opt-in list. They didn't give you their email addresses so you could send them marketing messages, so it would be considered spam. I wouldn't risk it.

    Yep, that would pee me right off unless you asked me first. Ask them first! Send them an email first with your offer to sign them up to the greatest thing ever or whatever. If they're friends, tell them you have found a way to profit by selling their email address and you want to know if this is the best address to use and they might give you another address to use for spam instead.

    They are not, opt in. You'd have to provide them all with some sort of opt-in form and build a new list of opt-in e-mails, if your in the US double opt-in them for good measure.

    I'm in the process of reading Hypnotic Writing. It covers how to write sales letters to increase your sales conversion. I would recommend starting from there before you blast any emails.

    so what really the opt in list is? no buddy knows that their e-mail will be use for profit when they subscribe. for .e.g if you superscribe in some site do you know he is gona use your e-mail for profit but he will in fact.

    all these firends have gave their e-mails to me by themselves which means i have permission to send them e-mails, I am not going to sell my friends e-mails but only send them something they are interested about also i i will mention to them that if you buy this in that i i will be paid a commission its up to them what they would want.

    and before sending them offers i will ask them that can i send you these offers if they gave me the permission than i will go forward.

    I hate spamming..

    Quick: send out many emails with Cialis affiliate links! How better to help your friends than to help them get it up?

    *rolls eyes*

    Are you seriously considering spamming your friends to make a few bucks? Is this really what the world is coming to?

    Personally using friends isn't a good way to make money. People hate someone profiting off of them especially friends.

    You can use it to promote your website, your friend sure will like to have a look on your website. And you can earn some money through affiliate or PPC but promise your website is interesting and informative

    It's up to you if you consider if morally correct or not but you can try to have them fill various CPA offers for you. You'll make some good money with it.

    If you still want to market through your friend's emails, do it properly and wisely. Don't just spamming them.

    Get a list legitimately.. one that is actually interested in what you are selling! I'd be P.O.'d at a friend trying to flog to me...:)
