    I have Interspire on a dedicated, tunnelled out to a VPN.

    How many emails per hour should I start sending at on virgin IP's and at what rate should I increase it per day or week.

    Also, how many emails should I send per blast as I am warming up the IP's.

    Then, once they are warmed up, how should I run it.

    sending mostly GI

    THANKS,

    (Newbie who crashed and burned and trying to do it right)

    I made $10K in a week and was shut down everywhere...

    Hi Mike --
    In my experience warming up IPs is critical for mailing TLDs but exactly what you don't want to do for mailing GI. I could talk through my advice for warming up IPs for TLDs but since it sounds like you are a GI mailer, I would not recommend that.

    If you got shut down after a week, then you need to be focused on cleaning your data, not warming up your IPs. What you should try to focus on is improving your data cleansing and hygiene.

    What do I mean specifically?
    First, use a reputable scrubbing service like IW, StrikeIron, etc.
    Second, make sure you are processing bounces correctly and look at your bounce rates. If they are too high, you are going to get blocked very quickly.
    Third, segment your data. You are likely to have a lower bounce rate for recent clickers or certain sources of data.

    Lastly, where you get your data from matters a ton. If you are scraping data or mailing data that you bought off a CD on ebay, then you are dead in the water and nothing you can do will help. If you are managing data where the users have provided actual permission to receive offers, then you should be able to make it work.

    Hope that helps.

    Thanks for the tips. I have a list of 1 Million Internet marketing buyers that a past partner of mine created from a "Google Cash" CPA offer whne that was hot. I took that and scrubbed it down, then did straight list swap with a bunch of the top ClickBank guys for their double opt in bizzop data. I have 180K recent clicks and 800K opens mostly GI, was mailing of Imnica which was working. I had about 9 spam complaints from clickbank over EIGHT months and they finally shut me down. That is 9 TOTAL spam complaints over and eight month period. I am using RapLeaf to scrub and now only mail data that has 10 or more data points available to buy.

    I now have Interspire and a dedicated at RapidVPS tunnelled to wholesale Internet. But still need to know the protocol to warm up the IP's. How many emails to mail per day to start, then what number of emails to send each successive day and at what rate per hour. I had a send grid account for which they said there to DOUBLE the number of sends every day.

    ahahahah... 1 million buyers? that must have been a sweet site and you should no doubt be super rich if 1 million people bought that product and should need no help.

    sounds to me like it's an ebay special

    You should send no more than 25=50 an hour per ip to warm up for a few days And the data better be damn clean or start over. {allthough ip reputations can be repaired, Takes to long} Spread it out and get more servers. More time consuming but if you practice good list hygiene it will be successful long term. And start working on building a double opt in list. It took us a couple years to build around 5 million but well worth the time spent and minimal dollars invested.

    if you need help cleaning the data. shoot me a pm.

    I agree that warming up IPs may not be your biggest threat IF you are mailing GIs. Warming up is mostly for TLDs.
